I’ve been a big fan of Bellroy wallets ever since reviewing their Slim Sleeve Wallet a while back. Although I’ve tried several slim/minimalist wallets, lately I’ve been leaning toward wallets with a higher level of protection, like the Waterfield Designs Finn Wallet that I’m currently using. So I was quite happy to discover that Bellroy had just launched their new Elements Range of wallets. Made from “water-resistant all-weather leather,” and with water resistant zippers, the Element Range is meant for active, outdoors, adventurous folks – or those that just want more protection for their wallet’s contents. Boasting internal organizational features and slim profiles like all of Bellroy’s products, the Element Range is available in three styles. The Elements Sleeve for $69.95 is the slimmest and features a pull-tab seal. The Elements Pocket for $89.95 is a more standard-sized zip-around wallet. And the Elements Travel for $139.95 is the largest and includes a micro travel pen, a passport pocket, and enough space to hold a smartphone. Each is available in Cognac, Slate, or Black color. Visit Bellroy for details.

    It is difficult to see from the descriptions and photos as to whether the waterproofing causes the leather to feel rubbery…
    Cuz we all know how hard it is to put a phone with rubbery case into your pockets. Also, not a fan of the lint-magnet factor of rubbery/silicone textures…

    @anson – Those are all good points. One of the reasons why I placed “water-resistant all-weather leather” in quotes is because I’m not sure that that actually means and if/how Bellroy has accomplished this. I’d love to give one of these a test-drive.
