    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'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...

    That's a damn nice wallet there... May have found a replacement for my beloved Coach bi-fold!

    I have an "original" and it holds 16 credit cards/insurance/loyalty/membership cards. It has two folding money pockets, one that holds US money and one an inch and a quarter deeper. I use the deep one for receipts.

    Their leather "sport wallet" may be what you're looking for.

    This is the one I have been using for years. I dislike having anything in my back pocket but this one works for me. Called a "smallet" and $12.50.

    I don't carry my wallet in my front pocket, but my phone is on my belt/waistband. Keys in rf, knife, clippers, and change in lf, wallet in lr or inside breast pocket on jacket. rr free. I have three sizes of wallet: full, 3/4, and 1/2. The more dressed up I am, the smaller the wallet.

    I used to carry a fossil wallet. There was one model I really liked, but they didn't last much time. I got a Tumi wallet as a gift a couple years ago. They aren't cheap, around $75-100, but it still looks new a couple years later. Highly recommended.
