Leather Passport Wallets – Five Plus One

Five Plus One is our weekly series of buyer’s guides. We pick a specific category and dig up five great options along with one that’s a little outside the norm.


Anytime you’re traveling abroad it’s good to keep your passport securely, well, secured! And there’s no better way to do so than with a Leather Passport Wallet. Why use some old tatty zipped contraption when you can use a piece of high-quality leather that will be with you for life, earning patina as you circle the globe? If that sounds good to you, here is our pick of 6 of the best leather passport wallets on the market.

1) Tanner Goods: Travel Wallet

Leather-Passport-Wallets---Five-Plus-One

Tanner GoodsTravel Wallet is one of the most iconic passport wallets around and with good reason. The design is minimalist, it comes in many leather options, and the overall design allows you to carry more than many other passport wallets on the market. Featuring slots for a passport, notebook, cash/tickets, and two credit cards (which can be stretched to fit multiple cards per slot) this wallet really has everything you need for globetrotting.

Available for $150 from Tanner Goods.

2) Ezra Arthur: Leather Passport Wallet | No. 5

If you’re looking to carry only the bare necessities, Ezra Arthur‘s Leather Passport Wallet No. 5 might be just the ticket. Featuring room for your passport and a couple of credit cards and constructed without any sort of lining, this wallet should help you carry your most important bits without being too bulky. That said, the Horween Chromexcel leather and made in USA quality ensure this wallet isn’t going to fall apart anytime soon.

Available for $125 from Manready Mercantile.

3) Red Wing: Passport Wallet

Leather-Passport-Wallets---Five-Plus-One-3)-Red-Wing-Passport-Wallet

Red Wing might be best known for their boots, but if I’m traveling abroad I’d trust them just as much with the construction of a quality Passport Wallet. They do pretty much have their own tannery in S.B. Foot, too. This made-in-the-USA wallet is definitely not for the minimalist, but through three full-sized pockets (for passport, cash, and more) and two credit card slots, there really isn’t much this wallet can’t cram in.

Available for $140 ($119 for Heddels+ members) from Stag Provisions.

4) Il Bussetto: Passport Holder

Leather-Passport-Wallets---Five-Plus-One-4)-Il-Bussetto-Passport-Holder

Il Bussetto is well known for top quality, refined leather goods, so it should come as no surprise that they have a phenomenal Passport holder. Featuring two large pockets and five card slots, this wallet can hold just about anything you throw at it. Not to mention the hand-painted finish and folded leather edges give this piece of dressy finish no matter where your travels take you. D

Bound to age beautifully, this one is available for $119 from Lost and Found.

5) Ettinger: Capra Passport Case

Leather-Passport-Wallets---Five-Plus-One-5)-Ettinger-Capra-Passport-Case

Il Bussetto isn’t the only dressy leather good company making passport wallets, and Ettinger‘s Capra Passport Case certainly commands consideration if you’re looking for something of that nature. Made in the UK from beautifully textured goat leather, this wallet features two large pockets and two card slots, which is the ideal size for a passport wallet (at least in the eyes of this writer).

Available for $190 from Brooklyn Tailors.

Plus One – Blackthorn Leather: Leather Passport Travel Wallet

Leather-Passport-Wallets---Five-Plus-One-Plus-One---Blackthorn-Leather-Leather-Passport-Travel-Wallet

While we’d all love to do enough traveling to make a passport wallet see a lot of us, most of us don’t do that much travel. That’s what makes Blackthorn leather‘s Leather Passport Travel Wallet so ideal. While designed to carry a passport, cards, and cash, this wallet also has room for a short pen. That means when you’re not traveling abroad you can swap the passport out for a notebook and be able to jot down whatever notes your day requires.

Available for $85 from Blackthorn Leather.
