Best Waterproof Wallets

It’s like a little insurance policy for all the important things you keep in there

It's not funny when your wallet, and more importantly the cards, cash, and important receipts inside it, are suddenly soaked. You can avoid these little (and not so little) disasters by utilizing a handy tool known as the waterproof wallet. We've listed a few waterproof wallets that fit this description, as perfectly as they fit safely inside the clothes you wear for your outdoor excursions.

Microfiber Waterproof Slim Bifold Wallet - Minimalist RFID Front Pocket Credit Card Holder
Holds six to eight cards or folded currency comfortably, yet it's thin enough to easily slip into a pocket. | VBAX

Slim, lightweight, and water-resistant, the Vbax models are the embodiment of the axiom "Less is more." The bifold design makes separating cash and cards an organizational breeze, and the craftsmanship and materials will allow it to survive the harshest treatment without so much as a scar. Simple and strong, the Vbax is built to last.

Microfiber Waterproof Slim Bifold Wallet - Minimalist RFID Front Pocket Credit Card Holder (2)

The Vbax wallet series are all extremely slim and lightweight. Every piece has been carefully considered to help you get the best of life's little moments. Microfiber is a wonderfully soft and lightweight synthetic material. The slim and minimalistic design offers convenient access to your credit cards, debit cards, cash, driver's license, and other IDs. Because it's so slender, you can put it in your front or back pocket with ease.

Skog Å Kust Plånbok Floating Waterproof Wallet | Perfect for Boating, Kayaking and Other Outdoor Activities | Bifold Midnight Blue
Perfect for the outdoorsman and outdoorswoman, it holds six cards, 20 folded cash bills, an ID card, and two keys. | Skog Å Kust

Made from Cordura Ballistic fabric that is coated to further guard against wetness, the Skog entry touts itself as IPX-6 waterproof. That doesn't mean you should go scuba diving with your Mastercard and money in tow. But should your kayak flip, a big wave soak you, or someone pushes you into the pool, you won't need to spend the next hour on the phone with a bank or credit card company. What's even nicer is if your untimely entry into the water dislodges your wallet, it will float, making its quick retrieval and recovery likely (as long as you're not near a waterfall).

SlimFold Minimalist Wallet - RFID Option - Thin, Durable, and Waterproof Guaranteed - Made in USA - Nano Size
It's 2-3 times thinner than leather models when empty, but it holds up to eight cards or a similar thickness of cards and cash. | SlimFold

Nano is the key word here. Yes, it's waterproof and yes, its craftsmanship and design are built for durability. But you will mostly love this wallet for how unintrusive it is. Its softshell design is more abrasion-resistant than the leather wallet you've been lugging around, too. The SlimFold Nano is the thinnest wallet with the smallest footprint.

OneTigris Front Pocket Wallet with Waterproof Zippers, Small Coin Purse Change Pouch Nylon Minimalist Wallet for Men & Women (Black)
It measures a mere 1 inch in thickness and is designed to keep items from floating out or floating away. | OneTigris

Designed to prevent the jingling and noise of carrying change wherever you wear it, the One-Tigris pocket wallet contains four interior card pockets, one exterior front ID window, and Rio cardholders. Skiers will love how the zippers are glove-friendly. And everything is water-resistant, made from durable nylon materials.
