What wallet do you carry?

So after shopping for my own, I'm curious what types of wallets other people on here carry around with them and why they picked that specific one.
What went into your decision to get it?
Did you go for style, functionality, or both?
How important were the number of card slots to you?
Are there any other factors that were in your decision?

For me, it was way past time I got a new wallet. I'd had my old one (and still do) since it was gifted to me on Christmas back in '08. After seeing nearly 14 years of use it was looking a bit banged up, and between carrying the couple of IDs I have, my credit and debit cards, and a few insurance cards it was a bit cramped. Especially anytime my Fiancée asked me to carry one of her cards/ID in my wallet for the day. So, I went for something that could carry more than 6 cards comfortably. The lack of a cash pocket doesn't bother me, as I tend to only carry cash on me once or twice a year and only for very brief periods of time.

For anyone curious, I'll drop the Amazon link to what I got:

I look forward to seeing what everyone has to say!

Re: What wallet do you carry?

I was given a TUMI gift card, so I went with this:

Their wallets are pricey, and if it wasn't for the gift card, I would have NEVER went for a $75 wallet. But I actually love it and wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one in the future should I need one.

My current wallet. I carry four cards, DL, transit card, and 5-6 bills.  More practical than the two "minimalist" wallets I tried before.

The Ridge Carbon Fiber. I got sick and tired of sitting on a conventional wallet so I tried it out. It's light, easily fits in my front pocket, hold 10-12 cards/id/etc. The downside is that it's a little expensive, but it's definitely worth it.

Re: What wallet do you carry?

My wallet is one I bought from Macy's many years ago when I had a cosplay incident and went to Macy's for a belt. While there, I bought the wallet. It's got tears and rips all over but since it's been used so many years, and stores like 15 cards, it just a fat mess. I don't really mind though. It keeps my cards in one place and I always have large coat pockets.

I'm a guy and I just use the card wallet (instead of regular bifold wallet). Got it off Amazon.

I'd be interested to hear which wallets might stay in good shape after a 3-year journey into the future and back Smiley Very Happy
