REVIEW – Bellroy Leather Elements TravelEditor choice
Intended to be a minimal, more secure version of the Bellroy Travel Wallet, the Bellroy Leather Elements Travel is a great zip up alternative.

How Does the Bellroy Leather Elements Travel Stack Up?
There’s no doubt that Bellroy continue to produce great quality, leather travel wallets. The Bellroy Leather Elements Travel is no exception. The waterproof zipper make this wallet ideal for wet and cold weather (skiing anyone?) and the wallet is in typical chic Bellroy style.
There’s not a lot of give in the waterproof leather and although you can fit a smaller sized phone (think iPhone 6 not 6+) as well as a passport, you wouldn’t want to carry a lot more than that inside. There’s plenty of room for cash and cards on the inside and even a slot for a key or sim card and damn it’s a sexy looking thing!
Look and Feel
In terms of size, it’s a little narrower and shorter than the Bellroy Travel Wallet but a little bit thicker. It still fits comfortably in your pocket however but I find it slightly more uncomfortable in the back pocket when sitting down. It also costs a little more than the Bellroy Travel Wallet which I guess is due to it’s specialization and materials used.
I will say, this isn’t as good for boarding passes and doesn’t feel quite as nice in my hand as other Bellroy products but if you’re going cross country it’s the more obvious choice. Plus – it comes with Bellroy’s famous micropen!
It’s hard not to keep comparing this to Bellroy’s other products as I think they standalone in many respects and for me, it’s something I would be taking with the weather in mind. The other Bellroy Travel Wallet is bigger, more versatile but less secure and I would take each wallet with me for different duration trips.
