For the guys that carry these tiny wallets, do you use your back pocket or front? I love the minimalist approach, just not sure how I would carry the thing.

That's why I got a tgt wallet. I can toss it in my front jean pocket and it doesn't print too much. Most of the time, my back pocket, though.

Tailwag (Angel) sells his version for $50.00, not sure where you saw the 120

I like the slim wallets, but I always feel like there is a compromise with any of them that I have tried.

The problem with a lot of thin wallets, isn't the thickness, it is that they want to stack/fold everything into the size of a credit card, then pack it together. I like thin, not tiny. The convenience of the thinner wallet or being able to carry it in my front pocket is quickly forgotten if I have to un-stack or unfold everything, every time I need something. I don't want to pull out 8 cards to get the one I want, I want to pull out that one card.

I tried switching to a sail cloth bi-fold and (aside from my wife laughing at it), it also had a lot of "dead" space (space that added size but you couldn't do anything with) due to how it was put together. Very thin, but not great looking. The benefit I saw though, was that bills were easily accessible, I didn't have to fold everything multiple times, and I had easier access to more CC's. Being a bifold it was larger, but thin enough to wear in the front pocket and not notice it.

I bought the trayvax wallet and love it. It's the first wallet I have carried in my front pocket. Thin, carries cash, and feels good in my pocket

How thick is it?

I love my tgt wallet, but it can be a pain to get the money out sometimes, and due to it being leather, it can stretch.

The Velcro turns me off. Seems like it could wear out.

maybe after thousands of pulls (I've seen velcro in military applications that has to be at least 15 years old and still usable)

The Velcro has a lifetime warranty so if it ever does wear out I can get a new one.

With all of my stuff in it (more than I really need to carry) and 5 or 6 bills the entire walked is about half an inch thick.

After trying and reviewing every single one out in the market today, I really like my own the best...obviously. It only sells for US$ 50 - comparable wallets sell for 3-4 times more so my goal was to keep it very affordable.

Currently, I just use a thick rubber band. It's worked for almost 8yrs for me. I do like these newer thin wallets and have been interested in picking one up, just haven't done it yet. My rubber band works just fine... lol

Although, after looking at TAILWAG's wallets I might have to pick one of those up from him...

I use a Rustico Single track leather wallet. I'm very minimal with what I carry though just 5 cards and usually no cash but folded up cash will fit in it no problem, it's perfect for me. It has 2 pockets so I keep all the cards I don't use on a normal basis in one pocket and the card I do use everyday in the other. It runs a little over $20.

KCCO makes an amazing hand made simple wallet and the guy that does them is a car guy also. Very good dude. If I wasn't so cheap this is what I would have. They look amazing after they are broke in.
