Bellroy Wallets Review:

Why We Love Bellroy Wallets:

In our opinion Bellroy wallets are simply the greatest. We've tried others, but these highly functional and well-designed wallets offer incredible value given the sustainability credentials and 3 year warrantee.

They are all made from lightweight premium vegetable tanned leather and with functionality at the forefront of their designs.  The entire concept was to reengineer the wallet so that it was slimmer and more durable. Bellroy achieved this using the "nude approach" which removes any unnecessary leather sections and reduces bulk.

Which Wallet?

The biggest issue we've had at Bear & Bear is working out which wallet to go for as there is a formidable selection.  We stock the majority of the range, and based  on customer feedback and our own experience we thought a Bellroy Wallet Review was in order. We've started with the bifold wallets as they are the most popular.

Note on number of cards: the number of cards that can fit in each wallet is approximate and a guide to reasonable practice. Cards come in different thicknesses, and some people (me included) are happy to load their wallets up. The difference with every Bellroy wallet design is that they are so minimal that you can get far more cards in there without the bulk.
