The wallets are 3.5 by 5 inches when closed and have a Velcro closing flap. They come in various solid colors on the outside of the wallet and multiple colors on the inside. They have black trim around the edges and between the pockets. The wallet contains five pockets, one of which contains a zipper. The backing on the largest pocket is yellow.
