Carryology says hi to Bellroy

Bellroy is a new wallet and carry brand

The growth and support that has been happening around Carryology is amazing. We feel really fortunate to be a part of the carry community finding a voice.

The initial idea and seeding for the blog came from a few of our contributors, who have also been working on another project. That project is called Bellroy, which has just launched a series of really interesting wallets…

For the regular readers of this blog (which is a LOT of you), you’ll notice some of the themes that get frequent discussion space – slim wallets, more efficient storage, dividing cards between frequently accessed and infrequently accessed… the sorts of themes that are too rarely addressed in the wallet world.

So these guys are now trying to improve the way we carry, using responsibly sourced, vegetable tanned hides that feel pretty amazing in the hand. The formats are diverse, and both male and females are catered to (but sorry, no Costanzas).

Check it out if you have time, ping some feedback to the guys either in the comments here or via the Bellroy site, and have an awesome weekend.

      Haha, these days the Bellroy crew only make up one third of the contributors, so I think they’d get Wrestlemania’d from the top ropes if they tried showing bias! But there’s also loads of other carry brands reading, so you can be assured that the world is indeed implementing this learning young Skywalker (I mean Jason).

    I’ve been showing my Very Small Wallet around Melbourne and San Fran. The response has been amazing.

      Great to hear Scott. Hopefully it’s also reduced your pocket bulge and started to protect those cards a little better :)

      Ahhhh, San Fran in Summer. Slightly jealous right now…

    Definitely. My smaller pockets make it easy to weave between the hordes of confused tourists.

    Just got my Hide and Seek wallet a few days ago! I randomly saw it in a shop and thought it was the coolest wallet ever! Great design, high functionality and definitely unique and FUN! ( I like fun wallets).

    I was even more surprised and glad to find out that Bellroy’s based in Melbourne!
