Money Clamp review and comparison

According to the people at Money Clamp, their product is: The World’s Only Money Clip That Works.” And while we, at Best Money Clip would have to disagree with this, we certainly wouldn’t disagree that the Money Clamp works very well. Their innovative (patented) clamping mechanism makes the money clip simple to use and will keep your essential items safe, secure and organized.

Why choose a Money Clamp?

  • Slim – doesn’t take up much room in the pocket
  • Works well with a small or large amount of bills and cards
  • Wallet part keeps cards separate and neatly organized
  • Can be used with or without the wallet

We’ve put together a comparison of four different Money Clamps where you can compare specifications. These vary in size, weight, material and price but all of them have one thing in common, they use the same Money Clamp patented clamping mechanism.

Money Clamp Zurich Gunmetal with wallet

Money Clamp Zurich Gunmetal with walletRobust and industrial looking, the Zurich version is the priciest model in the Money Clamp range. It seems somewhat appropriate that it’s named after Zurich, Europe’s most affluent city.

This Money Clamp comes supplied with with a black stamped Congo Croc Leather wallet and is shipped in a stylish black leather gift box.

Pros: Robust, made from Nickel-plated zinc alloy, good capacity
Cons: Heavier than the other Money Clamp models

Money Clamp Geneva with wallet

Money Clamp Geneva with walletWe included the Money Clamp Geneva in our Review of 5 of the Best Money Clips, on the homepage of the website.

The Geneva range is Money Clamp’s most popular and well known. It’s an excellent budget option and at around $35 represents excellent value.

One of the best things about Money Clamps is that they work equally well with the leather wallet in the middle or with bills only. This particular model includes a slim Cabretta Leather wallet (in black).

Pros: streamlined design, slim, light, good capacity
Cons: some owners have pointed out that with the edge of the clamp being close to the end of the card holder it can make it a bit tricky to open at times

Money Clamp Milan Gunmetal with wallet

Money Clamp Milan Gunmetal with walletThe Milan Money Clamp in gunmetal is both sleek and sophisticated. It’s a little bit heavier but marginally lighter than the Geneva model.

The nickel-plated zinc alloy clamp comes with slim leather wallet, where you can store cards, receipts, photos and other important items.

Pros: streamlined design, slim, light, made from Nickel-plated zinc alloy, good capacity
Cons: Quite a bit more expensive than the Geneva range

Money Clamp Geneva Mini Mesh with wallet

Money Clamp Geneva Mini Mesh with walletAt a fraction of the size and almost half the weight of the Geneva, the aptly named Geneva Mini performs just as well as the larger version.

Some people actually prefer the mini version due to the length / location of the edge of the clamp. With it not being as long certain users find it easier to unclamp than the standard Geneva version.

Like the Geneva, the Mini comes with slim Cabretta Leather wallet (in black).

Pros: smallest money clamp, slim, super light, good capacity, very good value
Cons: smaller clamp may be a bit trickier for somebody with unsteady hands to open

Conclusion

There’s something for everyone in the Money Clamp range. Both budget and higher end options use the same clamping mechanism but vary in size, weight, material and price. A lot of it is down to personal preference and taste. One thing that all of these models offer is versatility – they will perform equally well, with or without the wallet clamped in the middle.

Smart Money Clip

Manufactured by Storus Corporation, the Smart Money Clip is one of the best-known money clips on the market. With one side for cards and the other for bills, it’s a great way to organize and keep essential items safe. More recently, the ever-popular money clip has become available in different guises, such as the Smart Money Clip Lite and Smart Money Clip Leather.

Why choose a Smart Money Clip?

  • Modern and stylish design
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Keep cards and currency separate
  • Available in different materials and finishes

Titanium Smart Money Clip

Titanium Smart Money Clip

The titanium version of the Storus Smart Money Clip is finished with a physical vapor deposition. The process bonds a very thin layer of titanium on top of the steel, which makes it substantially harder and more resistant than stainless steel. As a result, a beautiful and durable finish is achieved.

Black Matte Smart Money Clip

Black Matte Smart Money Clip

If you’re after a more subtle appearance, the Black Matte Smart Money Clip is worth a look. The rubber-coated finish gives the money clip a tactile, soft feel. Very “Smart”, indeed!

Stainless Steel Smart Money Clip

Stainless Steel Smart Money Clip

You may have seen the polished Stainless Steel Smart Money Clip on TV? And it’s available for less than $20, making it very affordable. Hardly surprising that it’s the most popular version of the Smart Money Clip on Amazon.com.

Brushed Gold Smart Money Clip

Brushed Gold Smart Money Clip

For anybody looking for something a little bit special, there’s the Brushed Gold Smart Money Clip. The impressive gold-plated finish adds a touch of class to this money clip. Combine this with its usefulness and you have a highly desirable product.

Gun Metal Smart Money Clip

Gun Metal Smart Money Clip

Another favorite is the Gun Metal Smart Money Clip. The gun metal finish gives the money clip a classic and timeless appearance. The perfect choice for somebody who prefers a less shiny finish.

Smart Money Clip Leather – Red

Smart Money Clip Leather Red

A combination of genuine Italian leather and stainless steel, the Smart Money Clip Leather caters for the business professional. With an increased capacity of up to 12 cards and 30 bills, there’s an extra bit of storage for those who require it. The Smart Money Clip Leather mixes old and modern styles to create an attractive and functional product.

Smart Money Clip Lite – Pink

Smart Money Clip Lite Pink

The most recent version of Storus’s Smart Money Clip is the Lite. It’s made out of Poly-carbonate, a highly durable polymer that is clear, heat-resistant and non-metallic. The material is that strong that it’s used in bullet-proof windows! The Smart Money Clip Lite can house up to 5 credit cards and 30 bills.

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

Bosca Nappa Vitello

Leather Money Clips | Review Bosca Nappa VitelloWe included this in our top 5 money clips, on the homepage of Best Money Clip.

The Bosca Nappa Vitello is made from high quality leather and is nicely stitched and finished, as one would expect from a Bosca product. It’s priced highly competitively too, pound for pound it’s one of the best money clips out there.

The magnets are on the stronger side but we know how frustrating it can be to have a leather magnetic money clip and the magnets aren’t strong enough, it can slide about and not keep everything in place.

If you’re looking for a leather money clip, the Bosca Nappa Vitello ticks all of the boxes: quality, price, color options, performance.

Price: $$

ProsCons
  • Very good price for a high quality product
  • Available in different colors: black, cognac and dark brown
  • Strong magnets
  • Comes in Bosca embossed box
  • One or two people have noted that due to the strength of the magnets it can be a bit tough to open when nothing is inside

Polo Ralph Lauren Money Clip

Leather Money Clips Review | Polo Ralph Lauren Money ClipThis designer money clip from the Ralph Lauren Polo range is debossed with the brand’s signature pony at the front.

Luxurious and well made, this money clip is good enough for any gentleman to carry round with them.

Another high quality product from Ralph Lauren – and the gorgeous box it comes in is almost as nice as the money clip!

Price: $$

ProsCons
  • Debossed logo is subtle
  • High quality like all of the Ralph Lauren Polo range
  • Ideal for gifting – comes in a beautiful black box with gold Polo logo on
  • More suited to people who like the Ralph Lauren brand

Johnston & Murphy Money Clip

Leather Money Clips Review | Johnston and Murphy Money ClipAnother leather magnetic money clip option is this one from Johnston & Murphy.

We love the simplicity of this design and the French-fold stitching gives it a real classic look.

If you’re looking for an unbranded leather money clip and you’re budget doesn’t quite stretch as far as the Bosca Nappa Vitello it’s hard to look much further than this.

Price: $

ProsCons
  • Classic and simple design
  • Available in different colors: black, mahogany and dark mahogany
  • No logo or branding on the outside so works for all
  • Good value
  • Magnets can demagnetize cards if you keep them inside or too close to the clip, (which is not advisable)

Bosca Old Leather Deluxe Front Pocket Wallet

Leather Money Clips Review | Bosca Old Leather Deluxe Front Pocket WalletTo include a second Bosca product in this leather money clip review tells you something about the quality of their products and design.

This money clip card holder is cleverly designed with a center pocket that can be used to store receipts or other important items. A magnetic money clip on the back sets this above a lot of other money clip card holders.

With three card slots on the front this leather money clip card holder provides an excellent home for your essential items.

Price: $$

ProsCons
  • Keeps cards and bills separate
  • Money clip on the back actually magnetized, (not all money clip card holders are)
  • Has a clever pocket in the center that can be used for receipts and / or other important items
  • Available in different colors: black, cognac and dark brown
  • Another quality leather product from Bosca
  • Slightly wider and longer than most standard money clips

Harley-Davidson Men’s Bar & Shield Money Clip

Leather Money Clips Review | Harley Davidson Men's Bar and Shield Leather Money ClipWhat better money clip for a Harley-Davidson fan than this? Compliment your motorcycle leathers with this genuine leather magnetic money clip, embossed with the Harley-Davidson logo.

With really strong magnets, like the Bosca Nappa Vitello so you don’t need to worry about cash working its way loose in your pocket.

An excellent value leather money clip.

Price: $

ProsCons
  • Strong magnets keep cash secure
  • Perfect accessory to compliment motorcycle leathers
  • Good value
  • Fantastic gift idea for a Harley-Davidson enthusiast
  • Magnets are very strong so not really suited to carrying credit cards inside, just bills

Money clip card holders review and comparison

If you can’t quite bring yourself to get rid of your wallet completely, a money clip card holder could be the solution for you.

Best explained as a hybrid product, a money clip card holder is exactly as it sounds – a money clip and card holder combo. Typically they’re made out of leather, but not exclusively.

Why choose a money clip card holder?

  • Keep bills and credit cards separate
  • Organize credit cards better – keep them in particular slots
  • Credit cards don’t use up the capacity of the money clip
  • Still tend to be slimmer than wallets

Kenneth Cole Reaction Money Clip with ID Window

Money Clip Card Holders Review | Kenneth Cole Reaction Money Clip with ID WindowThis lightweight money clip card holder from Kenneth Cole features an ID window on the front, with the money clip on the back.

Unlike the other products we looked at, it doesn’t have any dedicated card slots. There is room for a couple of cards and ID but if you’re looking to carry a little bit more or want quick access to your cards, there are probably more suitable alternatives.

However, if you do like to travel light and only want to carry a few bills, ID and a credit card or two then this slimline money clip card holder is worth a look.

Pros: Lightweight, slim, ID window makes it easy to show identification without taking it out

A look at money clips

In our society, our money holds a significant importance to us. We work hard to build up our cash and use it on life necessities as well as leisurely expenses. Since it is so important to us, we have always put the utmost care into safely securing it. While wallets may be a popular choice amongst men, money clips have also become popular for various reasons.

What is a money clip?

A money clip is a small device, usually made of some type of metal, which holds your cash and credit cards. The metal folds over into a small clip that can tightly pinch together your valuables. Since they are so small and efficient, money clips provide you with a much more compact way to store your money. 

A Look At Money Clips | Adamant Fashion Men's Slim Money Clip

There are a few key advantages money clips have over wallets:

  • Safety – Many guys invest in a money clip because they feel they are a safer alternative to wallets. Wallets can make a large noticeable bulge in your pocket, advertising it for hungry thieves. By using a money clip, you can secure your money in a much less noticeable way.
  • Convenience – If you have had a wallet for a while, you may have experienced the problem known as wallet clutter. As things like cards, receipts, and pictures begin to pile up, it becomes much harder to navigate your wallet. With a money clip you have easy instant access to your cash, saving you the time of fumbling through the sections of your wallet.
  • Size – A lot of people claim that size matters. With money clips it’s the compact size that counts. Wallets can be large, bulky, and awkward at times. A money clip makes storing your valuables much easier and clears up space in your pockets at the same time.

A Brief History of Money Clips

Money clips first hit the scene a long time ago and have continued to remain a money storing staple for many men today. In ancient times, most financial transactions used materials like gold and valuable resources. As paper money began to become more popular, people had to find a way to store it. At first things like purses and wallets were made to transfer coins and paper notes

In the early 1800’s, we began to gravitate closer towards the use of paper money and money clips grew in popularity. It wasn’t until the early 1900’s however, that money clips started to become a real trend amongst men. Historically they began as a luxury amongst people who were a bit wealthier. During tough economic times, many average and lower class citizens struggled to gather money on a week to week basis. Because their money was going so fast, storing it wasn’t exactly an issue. People that were better off could use money clips to secure their cash and showcase their wealth.

Money Clips as a Gift

When in doubt, money clips are always a classic gift choice for men. They come in a variety of styles and materials to suit almost anybody. The most popular money clips are made from metals like gold, silver, platinum, and plated brass. These types of clips can come in more luxurious and expensive options, sometimes even garnished with precious stones like diamonds. More expensive money clips go beyond storing money and serve as a lavish and sophisticated accessory for guys.

The amount of personalization they offer also make them a great gift choice. It is fairly common for men to have a money clip engraved with letters, numbers, or symbols. You can choose a specific engraving that fits you or the person you are buying it for perfectly. They have also been engraved to commemorate special events like weddings or birthdays
