I need a new wallet as mine has seen better days. The pending CCW has sparked my interest in finally getting a new one to carry it in. Anyone have any brand/style recommendations and any good on-line sources. I'm kinda partial to the three way fold wallets, but I'm open minded.

Dockers makes a very nice trifold one. Many, many pockets.

ETA: Fossil is also pretty good.

You should get one that fits nicely into your back pocket.

I bought the Kohl's brand (Sonoma, I think) several years ago and have been happy with it. It's a trifold. The other day I was reading that sitting on a wallet at work or whatever can damage your sciatic nerve and that you shouldn't do it. Next time I may get a smaller one that is easier to put in a front pocket when I'm going to be sitting down for extended periods of time.

Get a coach billfold.

I love mine, I have had it for a year now, and it looks still brand new.

Stafford (JCPenny) tri-fold is very soft leather...probably hand crafted in China...inexpensive and comfortable.

Mine is probably comfortable because I don't have anything to fill it with

Aside from damaging your skia-tia-wawa-something nerve, putting your wallet in your front pocket is better in the event of pickpockets. Easier to feel someone reaching in.

for your feminine side

Man's purse, Gilded red morocco leather


$8,500

French Late 17th to Early 18th century Width 16.5 cm Height 14.5 cm. Goat skin was used to make this man's purse.Dyed red then tool stamped and finally gold leaf stamped. The clasp and chains are steel. It is a two pleat accordion design. Inside the purse is a small side pocket with flap. The amazing thing about this morocco leather is its pristine condition. Most often tooled leather from this period has deteriorated, but this purse has been well looked after.

I have a front pocket money holder/money clip made by Bosca. It has several pockets to hold credit cards, driver's license and CCW and a clip on the outside to put money. I like it. Fits into your front pocket nicely.

That would go great with my sword and magic helmet.

A money clip and a rubber band is all you need.

You can really load up a SpecOps T.H.E. wallet.

I've had mine two years and the only wear is the paint off of the brass grommets.

IT ROCKS

Fossil makes really good wallets. My current one is 10 years old and still looks new.

I wear my IDs around my neck, some cash and my credit cards in my front pocket in a glorified money clip with a pocket (this seems to be quite the trend now - as I have seen "front pocket wallets" for sale in many places.

No real "wallet.

By the way, I clip bulk cash together and carry it elsewhere

Some of you people seem to be spending more money on your wallets than what you keep in them.

It's almost like the $1000 scope on a $600 rifle. Hehehe.

I have the wallet from Eagle Industries works great for me
