Discovering Bellroy's Hide & Seek: More Than Just a Wallet

From the looks of the title, you must think that there’s something a little shady about this wallet. A wallet that can hide your money? Why would I even need to hide my own money? We’ll get to that later. This added feature to your wallet will surely be a useful advantage.

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the brand Bellroy. They are famous world wide for their high quality, minimalist leather wallets.

You can be assured that the materials used to make Bellroy products are of premium quality and environmentally friendly as well. Their leathers are treated in a way to age beautifully as you use and to have its own character with time.

Dubbed one of their best-sellers, the Bellroy Hide & Seek boast these qualities as well. Practical, stylish and minimalist (yet sufficient!)

Let’s dive into the product…

First Impression

At first glance, you might be thinking… “Well, this looks just like any other wallet”. Oh but my friend, a Bellroy wallet is so much more than that. With clever design, Bellroy has taken the conventional wallet and solved the great “wallet butt” problem.

The Design

An important thing you need to know about the Hide & Seek wallet is that this wallet comes in a LO or HI version. Each simply represents the height of the wallet to suit the currency that you are carrying.

Hide & Seek (LO) : 11.5cm x 8.5cm (Best for USD)

Hide & Seek (HI): 11.5cm x 9.5cm (Best for bill taller than 74mm)

In general, the Bellroy Hide & Seek portrays a wallet design that we are all familiar with. So if you’re someone who likes a traditional bi-fold with compartments for cards, this might just be the wallet for you.

The Hide & Seek wallet feels good to the touch and comfortable as you manoeuvre your day to day with it. But that one feature that makes it standout for the rest is a clever hidden section in the wallet to separate items you use more often from those that are important but needed less. This unique hidden flap means large bills can be concealed from view.

The Compartment

With 4 quick access card slots, you may feel (at first), that there won’t be enough. But let’s face it, a minimalist wallet is what it is. To help you declutter and keep only what is necessary. While there are only 4 cards slots for frequently used cards, there is also a protected section to stack cards you use less often. All in all, you can fit up to 12 cards. Adequate, I find for daily use.

On top of that, there’s an extra card slot tucked away in the bills section. Your cash is neatly stored here. You will also find the hidden flat bill section for your secret cash stash or to keep your travel currencies separate and for those of you who cannot live without a coin compartment, you will happy to learn that there is a coin pocket in the hidden section too.

Are you up for it?
