Bellroy Elements Sleeve review

The Bellroy Elements Sleeve is a great way to carry your coins and cards without the usual bulk

Cycling Weekly Verdict

If you're not put off by the price then the Bellroy Element Sleeve wallet is a good minimalistic option. It carries the essentials only, so if you like to carry everything including the kitchen sink then maybe look else where (or for other options in the range)

This Bellroy Elements Sleeve wallet is a good option for any budding cyclist who, like me, uses one wallet for everything and doesn’t like bulk.

There's enough to carry on a ride - energy gels, tubes, mini pump - without adding unnecessarily to the load in your pockets.

>>> Seven essentials you need to take on every ride

The leather is water-resistant and with a foldable lip it’s able to protect all your items from the elements effectively without sacrificing quick access to important cash or cards, thanks to the use of a separate pocket.

Keep riding, evern when it's raining

There is even a small key pocket included, although it was too small for my keys.

>>> Bellroy Elements Phone Pocket Plus

Being bulk-free and fairly small in size — 10cm x 7.4cm — it’s only big enough to carry essentials; coins will need to be carried separately.

With a three-year warranty to boot, you can’t go too far wrong.
