    I agree about the durability of Coach wallets. My current one is a Coach and looks awesome after about 10 years of use. My wife bought me a great looking Orvis leather wallet two years ago that hasn't been used yet. I had the exact same Orvis wallet about 20 years ago. It lasted pretty much as long as my Coach. The leather is excellent, but not quite as nice as my Coach wallet. Not as soft/smooth. Different type of leather and grain. I've always like the brown and green colors of this wallet. Here's a photo.

    Screw store bought crap and gimmick crap, pick your favorite boutique gun belt manufacturer and hit them up. They usually make wallets with scrap leather that will last a lifetime.

    That's a nice case. I'd like to try one like that, but I have too many cards (7 of various types). I need a freaking purse! LOL.

    Two personal CCs
    One business CC
    Insurance card
    Veteran's card

    I only like simple bi-fold wallets that are about the exact size of a dollar bill and can hold 2-3 CCs and 2 IDs.

    When my old one just got worn out after 7+ years or so, I found a Porsche Design one in France. CL2 3.0 Wallet H6

    So far its holding up well since 2018

    I’ve got one of their slim bi-folds and absolutely love it. Holds quite a few cards and cash and never feels bulky. The leather feels nice and supple. Going on a year with it and would definitely recommend

    It holds 10 Cards plus my folded up Fishing/hunting license, and a note my daughter wrote me 7 years ago :) - Thats about all she'll hold though.

    Then that WOULD work for me.

    Pretty much me, too. I've carried my wallet only in my front pocket for years now. I have no need for rear pocket carrying.

    Thanks everyone. I ended up with a Dango D01. So far its ok. Thickness isn't a whole lot thinner than my old bifold but the other dimensions are a good bit smaller. I'll give it a month or so and report back.

    I don't use a wallet, but I have one of their bags and the quality is phenomenal. I can't imagine the wallets are anything less.

    Damn you...

    Literally just got it so still not quite sure what to think about, thinking it’ll get a little easier to use after some time to break in (full 12 cards)

    It has the cash strap, will probably put the money clip on the front to use as a pocket/belt clip

    Small enough to keep in your front pocket? Like a small cell phone is what I’m hoping.

    The ridge wallet is basically the size of a credit card just thicker. It definitely softened up a little even since last night. So far I like it but still getting used to it

    I did add a few things to my apple wallet (insurance cards for example) because I didn’t have room for everything

    Haven't had the need for a wallet in forever. Waste of money for me.

    Carry ID, check card, credit card, and other ID in one front pocket. In the other, a few paper bills if any at all. My phone has everything else.
