Marina Grande Wallet is 8” (20.3 cm) x 4.5” (11.4 cm) x 1.75” (4.4 cm). Weight is 0.525 lbs (238.1 g)

The Marina Wallet is similar in length to the Crissy Full Crossbody, but not as tall or wide. 


What fits inside the Crissy Full Crossbody and Marina Grande Wallet? 

Since the Crissy Full Crossbody is taller and wider, it fits larger items that the Marina cannot. For example, a 16.9 oz water bottle, sunglasses case, and a packable jacket. 

The Marina Grande Wallet is slimmer, and more ideal for small items like your phone, cards, keys, portable charger, lip stick, or ear buds.

The Marina Grande Wallet comes with one strap and a wrist strap. You can style it as a shoulder bag, belt bag, or crossbody. 




Which is better pick for you? 

I suggest thinking about what you would like to carry with you more often. If you are more of a minimalist who loves an organized wallet, the Marina might be a better pick for you. If you need a larger bag that can fit more items, the Crissy is our most popular bag for a reason.
