Hey guys,

 

Getting sick of my bulky wallet and looking for a replacement.

 

Something that would be nice and thin as I carry it in  my back pocket.

 

Anything worth a look?

 

Cheers

I have a Mont Blanc Wallet, it's thin, light and very well made.

I've had one of these for just over a year Basics Wallet.

 

Not so good for coins though...

I use Belroy Slim Sleeve. Buy online, or they're in some stores. Area51 in Wellington on cuba mall has them. No good for coins, but I don't carry coins.

I use what I think was intended as a cigarette case. Some sort of chrome/stainless metal, holds and robustly protects my 6 essential cards with no wasted pocket volume. Try a barber shop/tobacconist/mens gift store or Trademe.

I have a Micro Wallet made here in NZ by Cactus Outdoor. Very minimalist.

I bought it thinking I'd only use it occasionally and often require a bigger wallet, but I use it every day and it's my only wallet now.

My wallet was a kickstarter punt, all aluminium, slot for credit cards and I suppose paper money but I never use them

Carry around 2 credit cards, epftpos, drivers licence, Koru card.

BoJo for PMUK?

Yeah, all sorts of cool looking products on kickstarter but I am not a very patient person so I usually struggle getting excited about stuff on there..

I've got a Ridge wallet - not what the OP was asking about as these are really front pocket wallets, but holds just what i need - and no extra crap! I got one with a cash strap instead of a money clip:

I've been using a Minimo since late last year. Best wallet I've ever purchased. www.minimostore.com
