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

 

 

I have a Mont Blanc. Cost a small fortune and has worn worse than the $20 wallet it replaced.

 

(that said, I do like it).

I have a Dash wallet - 2.0. Find it quite good.

Anything new and exciting on the scene?

I'm leaning towards The Ridge, maybe a Fantom. I prefer metal to leather.

Still using the Minimo. Great being able to add extra cards or cash if required, without adding much to the profile.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

My dash wallet is still going strong but starting to wear out along the edges so I'll be looking for something new in the next 6 months or so. Will watch this thread!

Love the Exentri leather wallet with RFID blocking. A Norwegian wallet, sold in NZ by The Vault in Auckland and Wellington, or from their website.

 

There is room for a lot of cards, and some paper money if needed. No way to carry coins (not a problem for me, at least).

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:

+1 for Ridge - these things are the perfect size and bulletproof - easily carry 5 cards + cash - the whole RFID blocking thing is a bonus if you're into that. 

 

For me I just wanted something way smaller than a regular wallet that would protect my cards - these are great for that use case and look pretty cool too imo (for a wallet!).

I have one with the brand "Sequel" on it. Purchased at Strands.

 

Fits very easily in a suit jacket pocket.  If I have it in my hip pocket I don't really notice that it's there. 

 

Holds a surprising amount, but is still compact.  About the same footprint as my S8 in its folding cover.

 

Room for a dozen cards, clear window for licence, usual notes compartment, pockets behind the card stacks and a zipped compartment too.

Why would anybody want a NFC blocking wallet? It means you then have to physically remove all your cards for them to work.

 

I can simply hold my current wallet one way to use my credit card and the other way to use my Snapper card.

Good question. Doesn't seem to be a security reason for it, at least ;)

 

BTW: You can get the Exentri wallet I linked to without RFID blocking as well.

Thats interesting. My current Exentri wallet does not have RFID blocking, and I have had problems with using my regular bank card with RFID because the terminals have been reading multiple cards (I have other cards with RFID in the wallet). 

 

Not tried to pay like you describe, I have had the card out of the wallet and the wallet close by.

The Ridge looks good, but you can find clones of it on eBay for just over NZ $2

I wasn't in the market for a new wallet but after seeing these I had to have one :)

 

Titanium on its way !

 

Also got the strap, looks a bit more secure than the clip

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.

 

 

 

 

Thanks everyone for the tips.

 

Got a Bellroy Slim Sleeve on the way ;-)

 

 

That's a good choice.

 

 

 

Bellroy make the nicest minamilist wallets out there, IMO

I bought one really good one from farmers. Pure leather, very slim, with external pocket for most used card. Best wallet ever owned, including compared against some fairly expensive ones. Mazzoni brand. 

 

Holds 7 cards max, not much else. Who uses cash these days anyways?
