    Hempy's key ring wallet, ftw!

    I carry it in my front pocket with keys attached.

There is evidence that sitting on a wallet is bad for your back.

    Wallets were invented by the same guy who invented the necktie and high heeled shoes. He laughs at us from hell every day.
    The chiropractor I went to years ago for back problems was adamant that wallets in back pockets were a good source of business for him--I've been a front pocket guy ever since....

    Word.

    And I hear it's a bit harder for FPGs (front pocket guys) get pickpocketed, too.

    I use something a little larger than a hempy's, and I put my phone in it too.

    Thanks JetSpeed! I try to support local as best I can. I had no idea there was a maker this close to me. Now to decide on which to buy.

    Ridge Wallet with a money clip on one side and the cash strap on the other. You canít buy them with both the clip and the strap. You have to add one or the other to the stock assembly. Assuming that hasnít changed. Took some getting used to but I like it just fine.

    Extremely. Even the loop for the keyring holds up well. They're made with hemp which is pretty tough stuff.

    ^Thanks, Marc!!

    Also, sitting on your wallet? I never, ever carry my wallet in a back pocket. ~5 days a week, I wake up, take it off my mantle, put it in the bike bag of whatever bike I'm riding, it sits in there all day in my office while I'm at work, then I pedal home and put it back on the matle.

    I recommend Coach. Mine's twenty yrs. old and not a stich or seam is compromised. Amazing.
    When I travel abroad, I like something slimmer for my front pocket. The Ridge may be the ticket.
