Re: Wallet with 23 card slots.

The Alpine Swiss should be fine if you never plan to carry that around. It is just too large.

 

I have one of their bifold wallets, it was OK but I dislike having credit cards in adjacent slots of any wallet because it causes the wallet to become thick, and it becomes more difficult to remove cards quickly. And I have to worry about possibly damaging the cards.

 

Lately I've been using this wallet, which is 2/3rds the size of the one you mentioned: http://www.amazon.com/Rolfs-Brass-Attache-Wallet-Black/dp/B001LJQFZS/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid...

 

Seven slots on one side, which I use only 4 alternate slots for credit cards. I occasionally use the other slots for CVS ECB's (if you know what those are, basically very thin slips of paper), and the two flat slots on the right are nice, the top slot works better if there is something behind the first card, so the top card doesn't catch on the sewn seam when you try to slide a card out. This wallet is 5" tall and completely fills a back pocket on a pair of jeans. Compare that to the 7.5" height of the 23 card slot wallet you mentioned.

 

So, one is good for the stay at home cards, the other for a large yet flatter wallet that you carry around.

That one is nice as well! Do your cards get bent with that one?

When I use alternate slots on the left side, no the cards do not get bent. It is a large wallet though.

Has any1 heard of this wallet? Its a nice wallet to store your cards if you dont plan to use them. It re-places the sock drawer in other words. My parents are gonna order it. Just thought Id bring it up.  http://www.amazon.com/Credit-Card-Wallet-Pocket-Secretary/dp/B004M6UD6Y/ref=pd_sbs_a_2


I have this wallet ! ! !  it is wonderful!   AND...you don't need to put just credit cards in the slots.  I have other cards (grocery rewards cards, employer ID card, health insurance card, etc) that I need to have easy access to, and this wallet fits the bill.  For us guys, it does create a problem in your hip pocket when driving though!  Be forewarned!  I usually just take it out of my pocket and put it in the center console so it doesn't make  my hip and leg go numb ! ! !Smiley Surprised

The center console sounds like a good idea. My butt hurts from all the cards in my wallet (well I dont have that problem now Smiley Very Happy) but I really like that wallet!

Re: Wallet with 23 card slots.
