The Rogue wallets I recommended earlier have built in RFID shielding. Months after I bought my Rogue, the owner of the company even sent me a nice thank you note for the purchase and he inlcuded a nice mylar sleeve to add RFID shielding to any other cards I had in another case.

I bought a Tumi flip that at 3 years has outlasted everything previous.

Cheap, thin, and works great! Lighter than a US quarter, made from tent material...like a tent for your cash! I have had mine for 6 months, and no signs of wear. I got it in lime green so I won't lose it.

Mine should arrive today! Thanks for the link I had been reduced to having my 10 year old niece make wallets for me out of duct tape...

Bellroy looks awesome. I'd love to get one of the real slim options, but since I've suffered from a bit of responsibility bloat as of late, and much of that involves additional proximity access cards, I've had more 'n more stuff added to my wallet. I tend to pick my wallets based on the max volume it has to envelop. One step down from their passport-sized options appears to be right for me.

I currently use a Hartman Leather money clip type wallet as a front pocket wallet. It has held up pretty well and works. When I switched to the front pocket carry to save my butt on long rides, it forced me to slim the thing down.

http://www.hartmann.com/Hartmann-Bel...&searchSize=12

The Rogue was going to my next one but the Bellroy looks interesting.

And I have to rain on the Big Skinny parade. I loved it for the two months it was in service before blowing out a seam. The company was great and replaced it immediately. A couple of months later, the same seam blew out on the new one. I did not find them very durable at all.

I had one similar looking to the Hartmann and found it way too huge, though thin enough.

I have to go back through this thread and decide pronto.

the thin money clip card holder is the way to go, for sure. Picked this up last summer when I was in London.

As a gadget-aholic, and manic organizer, I've been to every link in this thread and though "oh, that looks nice!"

Then I look at the price. $70, $80, $100 for a tiny piece of leather? Seriously? My $15 Victorinox leather wallet has been with me for about 5 years, with next to no sign of wear.

You guys must own BMW's

I currently have the Big Skinny but that Belroy sure catches my eye.
