Everybody has their own way of using a wallet. Each of us prioritises one need over others; be it carrying a lot of cash, preferring cards or sorting out small things like sim cards. And what we find is that the Bellroy Note Sleeve as well as the Hide & Seek Lo are two extraordinary wallets that simplify your choice making process.
BELLROY HIDE & SEEK LO
BELLROY NOTE SLEEVE
Here’s how we determine which of these two wallets are for you:
1. DITCH THAT STACK OF CARDS
We all have a bunch of cards we “think” are essential, but are they really that important to our daily lives? Are you sure you really need that Tealive card? Try this: Lay out all of your cards on a table and identify the ones you actually use on a regular basis. Those are the cards that should be carried forward into your new wallet. The others can be kept at home until you need them.
In the case of the Bellroy Note Sleeve, there there 5 card slots that hold over 11 cards, but try not to fill it up as the wallet CAN get a little bulky thus rendering it redundant as a slim, small wallet. The Note Sleeve also has the added benefit of being shorter than most regular wallets yet it’s able to accommodate local notes without folding it.
The Bellroy Hide & Seek Lo, on the other hand. has 7 card slots and holds over 11 cards as well, but as it is a wallet that is designed to be sleek and unobstructive, you will still have to consider the cards that you keep in it before it starts looking a little paunchy. Additionally, the Hide & Seek Lo looks like your classic wallet-perfect for those who don’t like to stray to a more contemporary style.
2. KEEP IT SLIM
Even if you do need to carry a bunch of cards everyday, is a coin pouch really necessary?
The Bellroy Note Sleeve as well as the Bellroy Hide & Seek Lo has a pocket with a flap for coins, but coins bulk up your wallet. You can also use this pocket to keep your sim card safe while travelling, or; in the case of the Hide & Seek Lo; to hold a couple more cards.
3. QUALITY OVER EVERYTHING ELSE
Leather can be sourced and proceed a number of different ways, so it’s important to consider where the leather comes from and how it was processed.
Bellroy leathers are selected based on a balance of functionality, durability and their ability to age gracefully. They are environmentally certified and sourced from only gold-rather Leather Working Group tanneries, which means that Bellroy is committed to making wallets that are both stylish for you and environmentally sustainable at the same time.
4. PAPER OR PLASTIC?
What do you prefer? A wallet that prioritises cash or cards? While the Note Sleeve has a compartment that holds notes comfortably without having to fold and tuck it, the Hide & Seek Lo has a hidden compartment for even more notes that you may not care to show others.
