    Hey guys. I use a wallet case for my phone but would like to separate them out now. I don't ever carry cash but I do carry my driver's license, pistol permit and a debit card. I'd maybe even like to carry a credit card and insurance card. What is the slimmest option? I don't want to carry a wallet, I'm a minimalist. Not to the point of using a rubberband, I like my gadgets, but not thick like a wallet lol.

    Ridge wallet?? Get one of the knockoffs from amazon to see if you like that style and save some money. Recycled firefighter, magpul daka are other options.

    Certain days, when I'm wearing a suit and going to synagogue for example, I don't want a bulky wallet in my pocket. You can find any number of slim and trim leather card cases that will do the trick. Mine has two slim card slots on each side and a middle pocket that will hold a couple of bills of currency. Overall dimensions are about the length of a credit card albeit taller to accept the two card slots 'stacked' on each side.

    Here's an example from Amazon; I think I actually bought mine at a luggage shop in a local mall; maybe $25 or less? Don't remember.

    If you go to this page of search results on Amazon you'll find a wide range of choices! https://www.amazon.com/s?k=men's+slim+leather+wallet+small+billfold&lo=visual_grid&page=5&qid=1564378394&ref=sr_pg_4

    L'chaim!

    I kind of like the looks of Anti-Wallet and the related holster that could help you organize some other small items. Granted, I carry too much to use it personally, but it's a nice concept.

    You have several options for minimalist wallets depending on what material and style you like best. My favorite is the Saddleback Front Pocket ID wallet.

    There are also several options by:
    Dash wallets
    Shamrock wallets
    Elephant Wallets

    I think I'd like a less expensive titanium credit card holder. Any recommendations? I see they range from 100-200 as far as I can find. Anything cheaper?

    I use a business card holder. It holds 10ish credit card sized cards at a push. Might work well for you

    I was in the same boat. I wanted something much smaller than my bi-fold wallet. I came across the Ridge wallet and it looked good but wasn't sure if I'd like it so I picked up a clone/copy on Amazon for $10 to try out. It's been a few months and I've gotten used to pulling cards out of it and works well for my needs so I'll get a Ridge when this one falls apart.

    Check out the Magpul DAKA line. I have the Essential and Micro. The Micro is a simple sleeve that will hold 4-5 cards comfortably. The Essential has a single slot on one side and two slots on the opposite side and can hold 7-9 cards reasonably well. The Micro is as thin as it gets, but the Essential is only as thick as a credit card when empty.

    How long have you had your Magpul wallets? I have seen some reviewers complain that the material stretched out and frayed over time.
