Are you looking for an ultra-light, ultra-skinny wallet?
Back in 2006, I wanted to ditch my big heavy leather wallet for something that wouldn’t weigh me down and make my shorts fall off. Something more functional and stylish than a rubber band or wallet made of tyvek or duct tape.
I figured with all the ultralight gear out there, there must be an ultralight wallet for people like me who prefer to walk, hike, ski, bike, and backpack than sit in a car. Nope!
After searching for months, I finally decided to sew up exactly what I wanted. I bought some bright yellow nylon, grabbed my wife’s sewing machine and made Version 1. Then I called it a day. But when I took out my wallet to buy things at the grocery store, people started asking me “Where can I get one for myself?”
So many people wanted one, I decided to get a small batch made up. I showed them to the owner of our small-town gear shop. He bought a few, and pretty soon he was reordering!
In 2009, I made a whirlwind west cost tour to sign up dealers. Along the way, I met these two nice folks at a hot spring in California (of course). See the video above… They were pretty excited to see the Butterfly Wallet in action…
Since then, I’ve done a lot of field testing and made a bunch of design improvements. Now you can find the Butterfly Wallet in stores around the world!
It’s really different – the Butterfly Wallet weighs less than a U.S. quarter and is just 3mm thick when empty. And I made them in fun colors. But hey, if you like black, we’ve got that too!
It turns out women like them too because they fit in tight pants and small purses. What did I know?

I just bought 3 Butterfly wallets in different colours. A black one for everyday use and a red one for the outdoors and in my pack where I can easily find it. They are a terrific design-exactly what I was looking for. I fit my 3 plastic cards, paper money and a few business cards in the wallet-super slim and compact. My wife loves the sky-blue one I gave here as well.
Crazy compact wallet.. crazy amazing. My pocket has wayyyy more room in it now. I show off the wallet to my friends and more than a few have been jealous! I have the red one and I am always able to find it because of the color (regular black/brown wallets etc always seemed to blend in to the surrounding scenery). Yay!
This wallet is just the thing!! Had it a couple weeks and its so compact I'm always checking to see if i forgot it. Cant even tell it's in my pocket most of the time.
I was looking for a thin wallet when my wife found the 1st generation example in the internet. I wore that one out and am now using its replacement. We have ordered several and given them out as gifts. My wife carries two in her purse. They make a perfect card divider.
Where to start ... I don't like to lug around a purse - so I was looking for something compact to carry in my pocket. Whether I'm super casual (preferred!) or suited up for work, this little wallet is PERFECT! Small but mighty! Want one in every color!!
