Avatar photo Avatar photo

Your wallet doesn’t have to be the bulkiest thing in your EDC. But somehow, it’s all too easy to let yours get out of control. Most of us only need an ID, a few cards, and maybe a bill or two to get through the day anyway. So if the only reason you’re carrying that bulky wallet is to stuff it with Taco Bell receipts dating back to last March, it’s time to switch things up. To keep things real slim, try a card sleeve wallet. They’re easy to carry (front pocket or back), quickly accessible, and super light weight. Luckily, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from when it comes to a good EDC wallet. In this guide, we’re highlighting 15 of our favorite card sleeve wallets out there.

The TGT (pronounced “tight”) wallet is one of the most minimal out there. It’s made up of an elastic band and a lambskin leather pouch.

Corter Card Sleeve

Cards: 6, Cash: Folded bill

Corter’s take on the card sleeve is completely hand made in New England from natural vegetable tanned leather. The case will pick up patina and darken the more you carry it, only getting better with time. The cards load in the top and the thumb slot makes them easy to get out.

Cards: 3-4, Cash: Dedicated Pocket

The Metro wallet by This is Ground has two separate pockets, one for cards and one for cash. Slip your cards in the top, while keeping your cash accessible on the shallow outside pocket. This slim wallet is made from supple, top quality leather with minimal debossed branding on the back.

Cards: Up to 6, Cash: Once-folded bills under strap

Cards: 1-7, Cash: Tri-folded bills

This straightforward wallet is cut, sewn, and burnished by hand.


Taylor Stitch Minimalist Wallet

Cards: 4 Exterior Slots, Cash: Once-folded in side pocket

Taylor Stitch’s take on the minimalist wallet omits the large, top-loading slot seen on most wallets on the list.

The two-tone Spanish leather with subtle gold branding results in a classy looking wallet that won’t weigh you down.
