Bellroy has sent us one of their ‘Elements Phone Pockets’. High quality, functional and stylish this wallet from their Outdoor range ticks a lot of boxes.
We’ve been living with it for a few weeks now and it has lived up to all our expectations.

Bellroy has built a brand with a reputation for elegant and functional wallets. Their mission is ‘to slim you wallet’.
Bellroy’s wallets are more than just fashion wallets, they are truly functional items designed to help organise, protect and still look great. The range covers ‘Everyday, ‘Phones’, ‘Travel’ and what we’re interested in ‘Outdoor’.
We’ve been living with the ‘Element’s Phone Pocket’ for the past few weeks, and to say we are impressed in an understatement.
Constructed from Bellroy’s all-weather leather and designed to carry phones up to iPhone 6 size, 2 to 8 cards, a key a sim card and coins this wallet has the potential to not be just your on the bike wallet but your everyday wallet to.
Before we even saw the Elements Phone Pocket we has a feeling it would be well made. opening the solid, purpose build mail box revealed Bellroy’s high quality packaging.
On first inspection the wallet is perfectly constructed. The leather is supple but still holds its shape, the water-resistant YKK zip is really nice and the interior of the wallet is well finished with practical slots for all you need to carry.
Bellroy back the Elements Phone Pocket with a three year warranty. Based on the feel an construction of this wallet we think you’ll get years of use from it.
The Elements Phone Pocket performed brilliantly, the all-weather leather does a great job of keeping the contents dry and the zip did not let any water in. The leather also offers a level of protection from drops and knocks and even after getting wet several times still looks like new.
We’d class the wallet as water resistant, it’s not going to survive being submerged in water but it provides good protection from rain etc. while in your pocket.
We found ourselves not just using the Bellroy on the bike, but as our every day wallet. It’s great having not having to empty what you need in between wallets before going for a ride and saves those priceless few minutes before and early morning session or when making the commute to work.
There’s adequate space in the Elements Phone Pocket for all you need, if you’re carrying more than it can handle you are probably due for a wallet clean out.
