Well made, seems to last forever, and small. Two thumbs up.

I did the same when I saw my friend with ALS had one. He couldn't easily get to a wallet in his back pocket and it just made sense. Now I carry only the few cards I use frequently and don't have the back pain from sitting on an over stuffed wallet.

Never carried a wallet in my back pocket - in fact, I can't remember the last time I carried anything in a back pocket

I've been using a Coach money clip/card holder for a couple years and like the minimalist design. It has two card slots and one internal slot or pouch or whatever you want to call it. Easily carries 4 cards total and a stack of twenties.

Check out "Duluth Trading" fire hose wallets. They have several styles. I've had one for a couple years and it looks like new. As a matter of fact everything that I've bought from them has been above average. http://www.duluthtrading.com/

No connection other than I've had a couple of the leather ones. Excellent product, thin, fits what I need.

I switched to one of these a while ago.

A couple cards and a few bills is all I need and this is the best I found for that. I found it's liberating to not carry a bunch of crap everywhere I go. I will never go back to a folded wad in my back pocket.



Very comfortable in the front pocket. A nice handcrafted piece made by people who take pride in their work.

I need a new wallet.. spending $20 on a wallet is way too much... I won't have anything to carry in it.

I've been using a "front pocket wallet/money clip" for years. I just got my favorite one so far, a Rogue wallet made in Maine USA.... It's curved so it fits perfectly in your front pocket. 40 bucks and made of nice soft leather. http://roguewallet.com/?gclid=CKDz87-Csq4CFQGd7QodZmseQg

It's a billfold type and only about 1/2" thick loaded with cash, ID, and 8 cards. To top it off, it has RFID shielding to prevent some aye-hole from trying to skim on of my credit cards.

I'm with you.

Best wallet I've ever had. Have the Mini, and have for some time. Ordered the JR and expect it today ( for longer trips/receipts saving, etc)

Get one from Saddleback Leather. It will last forever (100 year warranty).
Three different wallet sizes or just get a card holder. I have the large wallet since the wife got it for me a few years ago.










The best thing I ever did to my wallet was install a program on my phone called key ring to take the barcodes from the damn store loyalty cards and put them in that and then the cashier just scans the phone with the right card displayed.

A couple folks have already replied w/my advice: Coach bi-fold. The version I use is a little oversized--holds 6 credit cards/IDs and has two bill compartments. I travel a lot and use the second bill compartment for whatever version of Bongo Bucks I need for the country I'm in. Makes a nice place for receipts too...

I hate a wallet in my back pocket as well and usually carry it in one of the chest pockets on my flight suit or in a jacket pocket. The wallet I use also has the little removeable inner 2-card wallet/money clip that I use when I don't have a coat to carry the full-size wallet. Slips right into a front pants pocket...
