My old wallet was a bloated mess. It had cards from memberships I never use and business cards I never give out as well as 20 credit and ID cards. All in a water logged pigskin. Oh, did I mention I fell in the river? Well, after I fell in I had to take it all out to dry it off. This was the driver to take inventory and really think about what I use and need in a wallet. In the end I can get by with as few as 4 cards day to day, and I rotate as many as 12 in and out of the 4. This Card wallet is perfect for 12 cards and some cash. With all 12 and 5 bills it is thinner than a US quarter is wide. This all fits well in a front pocket or a breast pocket in a jacket. I think I will debate about carrying fewer cards to slim it down further.
Worth the money! Really great replacement for my leather front carry, which smelled like an abandoned water park ride. If you're not familiar with how to use one of these, I could see why it would frustrate. There is a learning curve. Only complaint so far is it feels a tad thick, the aluminum plate sandwiched between the CF could be a mil or two thinner, and still be plenty durable. However, still less bulky than my previous leather wallet.
