Leather money clips review

Both durable and flexible, leather is a very good material for money clips.

Leather money clips tend to contain magnets, one on each side. When closed, the money clip grips the bills inside and keeps them in place.

Other leather money clip variants include money clip wallets and money clip card holders, which are more hybrid-type products, somewhere between money clips and wallets. Best thought of as a compromise, a money clip card holder / money clip wallet is generally more streamlined than most traditional bulky wallets but not quite as small as the majority of money clips.

Why choose a leather money clip?

  • Timeless material
  • Ages very well and arguably looks better once worn
  • Smart and luxurious
  • Soft and lightweight
  • Simple and easy to use
