If you’re going to go downhill skiing, there’s one thing you’ll definitely want to take along in your pocket – A LOT OF MONEY!
But that doesn’t mean your wallet has to be as big as a crockpot!
I designed the Butterfly Wallet to be so light and skinny, you’ll hardly notice it. Yet it’s suave enough to keep you looking chic as you shell out $8.00 for a basket of “buffalo fries” at your friendly ski lodge commissary.
When you ski, what’s in your pockets? The other day I saw someone sitting in the middle of a hill texting! Maybe you’ve got a camera, some goggle wipes, car keys, a snack bar? It can get pretty crowded down there!
The Butterfly Wallet is a real space saver. This little video shows that when fully packed, it still takes up only 1/4 the volume of most other wallets empty!
Let me tell you a secret. For ten years I sat behind a desk in our nation’s capital. When I finally escaped, that heavy urban style kind of stuck on me like paisley wallpaper. I really had to chip away! First went the ties, then the suits, then the wing-tips…
When I wanted to dump my brick of a wallet, I started hunting for an ultra-light, ultra-skinny wallet. But have you noticed? Even most “sports” wallets are big and bulky with thick canvas fabrics and stiffeners. These clunky “sporty” wallets might look “outdoorsy” on the shelf, but they take up way too much room for my tastes.
Finally I decided to make my own.
I asked myself “Why all the bulky fabric and stiffeners? Why not let my bankcards and driver’s license give the structure to a wallet, just like poles give the shape to a tent?”
In 2006 I grabbed my wife’s sewing machine and made one just the way I wanted. The yellow fabric got some attention! Other people started asking me if I could make one for them. Finally, I decided to “go big” and make a bunch.
Since then, I’ve done a lot of field testing and made all kinds of subtle design improvements to meet my absurdly high standards.
I’ve done everything possible to make the Butterfly Wallet tiny, skinny, and light, but still totally stylish and functional. Here are the specs: The Butterfly Wallet weighs less than a U.S. quarter and is just 3mm thick when empty.
They come in lots of fun colors so they’re easy to find if you take a header (and forgot to zip your pockets). Of course, I’ve got black for you purists!
Some folks tell me they keep one Butterfly Wallet just for outdoors (or dancing!). For me, I use the same one for everything!

I bought this in violet on Sunday and am thrilled with its compact size and light weight. It fits in women's slacks pockets and as someone in the reviews said, also in the small zippered pockets of travel pants. It holds a lot, so I didn't even need to cut back on what I want to carry. Only suggestion is a grommet or hole I can attach a lanyard to if I want to, a minor consideration. I even liked the packaging - I could easily open it up in the store and make sure I liked it and put it back together again. This is a genius product and one I wish I could claim to have designed.
I switched to this simple wallet a few years ago when I started traveling. My travel pants are a brand that has a small zippered pocket on my thigh-safe and not obvious. A big wallet would not do at all. The slim tri-fold is perfect and does not add 'bulk' to my thighs. When I returned from my trip I realized I did not need all that other junk in my old wallet either so now I use the slim Butterfly Wallet only. I get compliments all the time.
Though I don't always manage to live as a minimalist, I'm one at heart and I 'get' this wallet. It's especially nice for traveling, when you want to go as light as possible. If I were a guy, and carried my cards and currency in my pocket, this would be the way I'd do it! As a female, I can only say that a thick wallet in a man's rear pocket obscures what could be a nice view. Guys!—This wallet just might improve your love life! Check it out.
I had purchased the original Butterfly Wallett as I needed to downsize since I carry my wallet in my front pocket. That wallet was great but the pockets were a little large and I had many occurrences of many or all of the cards falling out of it it I took it out of my pocket upside down. The designer was kind enough to send me the upgraded version for free. I have been using it since last year, and I must say the new version is awesome! Big improvement over the last one I had. I have not had one incident of all of the cards flying out of it. :-) Actually, not one incident of any card falling out of it. I love this wallet and get more comments on it than I did with my AlumaWallet.
great wallet.i would like to have one in camo color.you can just make one and ship it to me.please respond to e-mail address above.thank you,kevin......
Love this wallet. have over 10 cards in the 3 slots and 3 or 4 pcs of paper in the bill part and it is still so small. Have to check on it just to make sure that it is still there. Works great in my bike pocket protected by a jersey bin. Would buy this again in a heartbeat.
My old wallet was a tri-fold leather wallet. After transferring two ID cards, three credit cards, and cash to the Butterfly wallet, it's still 3/4" narrower and significantly thinner than my old wallet. The cards fit tightly and I'm not worried that anything will fall out. This will fit perfectly in the pocket of my jeans. Thanks!
This wallet is amazing. I was looking for a new wallet after my leather nike wallet started looking like someone was chewing on it. As a minimalist at heart I did not want another bulky wallet weighing my pants down. My girlfriend surprised me with this one and I have fallen in love with it.
Has 3 pockets on the inside that holds my business cards, id's and several check cards. Has space for money (just no money to put in it... lol) and is super super light so it does not weigh my pants down at all. I actually forgot that I had my wallet a few times and had to check my pants to make sure. It is super durable and does not show a footprint in my pants like my old wallet. And I know this might not matter to some people but I got the black wallet and it has no branding on it or logos, just perfect. So glad my girlfriend knows me so well and found this. AAAAHHH! This is a crazy good wallet. I highly highly recommend!
