A miracle happened last night. I placed the contents of my former wallet in the Big Skinny and I was actually able to fit the wallet into a much smaller purse that I haven't been able to use for years (other than a single night out when I take the time to transfer some of the contents of my regular purse into the smaller bag - a hassle)! This means I can actually use my smaller, lighter purse and still carry my checkbook/register with me; a necessity because I write down every bank card purchase! Not only that, but this wallet - empty - weighs under 3 oz; half as much as my former wallet!
With the extra flap on the bi-fold, the wallet does close with both checkbook and register. (I have one folded around the other as I had to do with my last wallet. Not optimal, but it works: I placed the back cover of the check book into one of the two available billfold spots - I used the one on the bottom - and the register on top of the checkbook with the back cover of the register tucked behind the back cover of the checkbook.)
The change purse on the back cinches the deal because I don't have to carry an extra one or have my change rambling around the bottom of my purse; and the wallet is still flat with change in it.
I also appreciate the purple color.
Right away, the feel is too slippery to me. I would think a nylon wallet would slide into your bag, without whatever they've done to finish the surface, just due to being made of nylon. The thinness, the shape, and the slipperiness combine to make it feel easy to drop.
Also, I am someone who avoids wearing all labels; I don't appreciate someone trying to use me for advertising, and this label is prominent in color, placement, and size. It's over an inch long by 1/2" high. It's also ugly and tacky. Come on Big Skinny, not all women who want a lightweight, nylon wallet are outdoorsy; some of us like a little more sophistication. You could do that by changing, moving, or getting rid of the label and by introducing some other colors. Personally, I'd be interested in a deep eggplant or magenta color.
Even with the cons, I am sold on this wallet and happy with my purchase. I may try to cut off the label, as another reviewer did.
