It's time for me to get a new wallet. Previously I've used and abused pretty low key wallets with a money clip. When my last wallet went down I've just been carrying loose in my pocket which basically equates to me losing my CHL sometime between carry the load and when I went to the range two weeks ago.

Any recommendations will be appreciated.

That's why I love these forums... It's almost like we are a bunch of women on the same cycle (not meant to insult females, just rumors us men hear about).

I too need a wallet and have shopped a little bit. My wife was giving me grief about my well broken in wallet that I reluctantly don't want to give up.
I'm a bi-fold guy and I don't usually carry too much in my wallet. The bare essentials. couple credit cards, cash, ID, CHL, business cards.

I've really been looking into RFID safe cards in an effort to curb any chances of credit card and Passport theft via RFID leakage.

I recently picked up a Bellroy and I love it. It's extremely slim and looks awesome. They're a little pricey, but the quality is awesome.

I actually picked up this.... and NO, it wasn't the leopard print or zebra, although now that I think about, would have been funny to whip that out around the guys at poker night... :)

It's not cumbersome at all... and waterproof I might add.

If you're looking for a slim or minimal wallet this might be of interest:

First Post, but figured it could be of use... I picked up a minimalist leather wallet from the guys over at Ranger Up. If you are not familiar with them, they have some pretty awesome shirt designs as well. I'm not affiliated with them at all, but I am a 10x happy customer.

I just recently purchased the Capsule Minimalist wallet. It's what I need and very lightweight. Would reccommend.

Thanks for the tip...just picked one up as well to replace my redneck binder clip and love it.

ITS Tumblr posted this wallet and it looks pretty bad ass and has all of the features I need but I'll be damned if I'll pay $89.00 for a cerakoted piece of aluminum.

A wallet made by Leatherology is great.

I'll throw in mention of Ragged Edge Gear. They build various items from repurposed scraps of kevlar sailcloth and carbon fiber. I picked up one of their card sleeve ID wallets about a year and a half ago and it has yet to show signs of wear when stuffed with DL, CCW, four ATM/credit cards, and health insurance card. It's not as voluminous as a conventional wallet but I find that to be an advantage - it forces me to cut down on all the rewards cards and similar crap. It's also remarkably low-profile for front pocket carry, which I strongly endorse for the reduction in lower back pain.
The pen is not mightier than the sword. If a man has a sword, he can make a man with a pen write anything he wants.

The answer, then, is to have a pen and a sword.

You could check out the CountyComm website. They have some nice wallets and EDC stuff http://countycomm.co...ssportrfid.html http://countycomm.com/lawwallet.html I use the LA Wallet as i donĀ“t like a big bulky wallet in my pocket and it has held up very nicely.

The best wallet I have ever owned. Used to buy a leather wallet once a year. Been carrying this for five years with no problems. Make sure to order the Junior version the full size I found way to big.
