PROS

The outside notch lets you push out the card with ease. The magnetic closure keeps the wallet closed tight so that the cards don't accidentally fall out. The stitching will last and keep the wallet intact for years to come. 

CONS

The faux leather has this specific smell initially. 

OUR VERDICT

Travando Rio is much more elegant than most money clip wallets but about as convenient as these wallets are. The pebbled faux leather looks rich and smooth. You'll be able to remove cards without opening the wallet especially far and exposing the bills.

CONS

The money clip holding point is weak. 

OUR VERDICT

Zitahli A-Jet looks and feels expensive, primarily thanks to the tough yet clean stitching that gives the model wear and tear protection without bulking the wallet. You'll be taking this wallet with confidence not worrying about any disapproving looks.

PROS

The stainless steel screws and money clip are resistant against corrosion, so you can even get the wallet wet without worrying about damaging its structure. The elastic webbing maintains its structural integrity too, making sure that the wallet does not start bloating with time. 

CONS

The money clip is difficult to remove. 

OUR VERDICT

ARW Carbon Fiber Wallet will make sure that scanning devices are unable to read the cards inside and access the data on these cards. Setting security aside, the well-rounded layout will let you find and choose the right card within seconds.

You can choose and switch between the cash strap and money clip using the screwdriver that's included with the wallet. You'll also be able to remove both and make the wallet barely noticeable. 

CONS

OUR VERDICT

Measuring 3.4 x 2.1 x 0.23 inches, The Ridge Slim Front Pocket is able to redefine everyday carry. Considering its reduced footprint, the wallet's 12-card maximum capacity is enormous. The price is not cheap but that's what premium materials cost you.

TRAVANDO RIO

Elegant and Slim

Travando Rio is elegant and slim. The wallet will be able to fit most trousers' pockets without bulging. Even so, with its intentive and well-thought-out layout, the model's enough space to accommodate most needs.

Inside, you'll find six RFID blocking card slots that will be blocking the 13.56 MHz band and protecting the cards against data theft via RFID and NFC scanners. Using the outside notch, you'll be able to easily push these cards out. Meanwhile, the stainless steel clip lets you clip several bills inside the wallet. The "stainless steel" part means the clip won't fall victim to rust and corrosion, so you can bring the wallet even to humid spaces.

Some might find the faux leather's specific smell somewhat offputting but the smell goes away soon enough, so you won't have to make long-term peace with it. From where we're standing, there's nothing offputting about the magnetic closure though, keeping the wallet closed tight and making sure the cards and bills do not drop out even when the wallet is dropped.

Bottom line, Travando Rio brings elegance, quality, and convenience together. With seven card pockets, you'll be able to carry all business, credit, and debit cards with you yet still have no issues slipping this wallet into most front pockets.

Zitahli A-Jet

Pull-Tab Access

Zitahli A-Jet, measuring 4.3" x 2.95" x 0.4", is not necessarily as thin and minimalist as some money clip wallets but still much thinner and less bulky than conventional wallets. Plus, considering the four internal RFID blocking card slots, two external RFID blocking card slots, and an ID pocket, the increased size makes sense. Even so, the pull-tab design reduces bulk and the bifold closure minimizes the wallet's footprint.

Generally speaking, people use some cards more than others. These are the cards you'll be putting inside the one internal card slot that comes equipped with a pull strap, enabling quick and easy access to everyday cards. Likewise, the card slot that comes fitted with a thumb hole will also allow you to pull out the cards with ease. Security-wise, the only complaint we have is that the money clip's holding point is relatively weak, so we would not recommend stuffing too many bills.

The stitching here is sturdy yet clean, offering brilliant wear protection but also making sure that the wallet's silhouette remains polished and streamlined. With that in mind, we'll recommend the Zitahli A-Jet minimalist wallet to customers looking for security and aesthetics within the same package.

ARW Carbon Fiber

No Bloated Back Pockets Anymore

ARW Carbon Fiber Wallet ditches leather to work with carbon fiber and aluminum. Sure, some might find that the wallet becomes less elegant without that familiar leather canvas but there are advantages to this construction too. First, the wallet measures only 3.5" x 2.2" x 0.3", making the model slim even compared to most money clip wallets. Second, the construction also makes the wallet more durable, with the carbon fiber shell being basically immune to corrosion and wear.

The money clip hasn't gone anywhere too, able to accommodate more bills than most people carry these days with them. You can even remove this clip to make the wallet slimmer, which's nice except that, even with the included screwdriver, the clip's not that easy to remove. On the bright side, there's nothing difficult about the elastic webbing that makes the wallet more flexible and improves its capacity without increasing the outline.

Though there's only one internal RFID blocking card slot, this slot is able to hold up to 15 cards so that you can bring all the cards with you. In short, with its premium aviation-grade aluminum and 304 stainless steel money clip, ARW Carbon Fiber Wallet makes an excellent gift that will likely last the giftee decades.

The Ridge Slim Minimalist

Taking Minimalism to New Levels

The Ridge Slim Front Pocket takes minimalism to a whole new level, reducing the wallet's size to 3.4 x 2.1 x 0.23 inches. It will be able to hold at least 12 cards, expanding the main compartment but without stretching out. The wallet redefines everyday carry but not with its reduced footprint alone.

The difference here is also the customizable outline that lets you choose between the supplied money clip and cash strap. You can remove and attach both, though not at the same time. Both are able to hold several bills, so this is more about preference than anything else. The screws and the screwdriver come with the package, so you'll be able to switch between these two whenever you want.

The flexible elastic webbing is partially what allows the wallet to accommodate <12 cards without bloating out but the webbing wears out with time, so be gentle when stuffing the cards. The outside notch will enable you to remove the cards with ease anyway, eliminating the occasional need to hurry and fidget.

What else is there to add? Considering the model's size, The Ridge Slim Front Pocket is an easy choice to make, provided you value minimalism and looking to reduce the bulging where it is not necessary.

Travelambo Medium Size

The Price is Right, Right?

Travelambo Front Pocket Slim Wallet, with its <10 bucks price tag, costs practically nothing. Naturally, the reduced price entails certain trade-offs. Sure, the model's measuring 4.1 x 3.3 x 0.12 inches, meaning that it is slim even by money clip wallets' standards. It is fitted with one internal RFID blocking card slot, five external RFID blocking card slots, and an ID pocket, which's pretty great when you take the size into account. But the fit is pretty tight, so stuffing more than 10 cards inside and pulling them out will not be as easy and comfortable as you'd normally want.

On the upside, with so many slots, you'll be able to compartmentalize and separate debit cards from credit cards and credit cards from business cards and so on. The ID pocket is nice too, enabling easy access to identification documents when necessary.

The seams are stitched and the construction looks and feels sturdy enough, so the wallet should last, although we'd suggest erring on the caution side anyway. Besides that, the model's unisex, so you can recommend this product to most people as long as these people are looking to purchase a minimalist wallet but do not want to spend more than 15-20 bucks on something that's not really necessary.

What Is a Money Clip Wallet?

We're carrying more and more cards these days, from various debit and credit cards to access cards and business cards. To accommodate these cards, ordinary wallets are becoming huge, too huge to fit most pockets, so we're forced to carry different purses and bags with us even when we don't want to do so.

That's where money clip wallets come into play. These slim, minimalist wallets ditch unnecessary compartments and fabric to reduce the wallets' footprint and make them thin enough to fit inside front pockets without bulging. Despite the fact that these wallets usually measure around 4 x 3 0.5 inches, they're normally able to hold more than 12 cards, which's enough to carry with you every card that you need on a day-to-day basis. More often than not, these wallets even come equipped with RFID blockers so that thieves are unable to access the data on these cards using different scanners and readers. Long story short, with these minimalist wallets, you'll be able to move light but also ready and prepared.

Add anti-theft backpacks or waterproof backpacks to the mix and you'll be carrying even more possessions with you without worrying about the items' security.
