    Interesting. How do you like the zipper?

    I tie all my loyalty cards to my home phone number, and never carry them. (I also never use my home phone...it's mainly there to support the alarm system. The ringer is off and the answering machine basically says 'forget it.')

    I have a V1 HuMn wallet with three plates:
    • ID/CDL
    • DOT health card
    • Car insurance
    • NEXUS card
    • CCW
    • Debit card
    • Prepaid card for a sandwich shop (which doesn't need to be there)
    • Work ID/transit pass
    • Extra transit pass (because 2 is 1...)
    • Health insurance
    • AAA Card
    • (sometimes) Money
    Width: 13mm (1/2") (without money :D)

    Thanks for the pics. Seeing the actual size, I'm not sure why anyone would get the med or original sizes. That mini covers cards and IDs perfectly.

    Check into Flipsude:
    http://www.flipsidewallet.com/
    I've always been a front pocket wallet guy and I've have the Flipside 2 for 2 years - absolutely love it. I have 8 cards, ID, cash and some biz cards. I like it because it closes so nothing falls out, it's smooth plastic rather than Lear or money clip which gets hung up and it's always the same size.

    Sounds like you may have too many items, but maybe not. It's worth a look!

    It's a great idea and cool product, but I still have too many cards for them. Still trying to figure out what can be left out and not having any success.

    The zipper was stiff when I first got it, but loosened up in a couple of weeks.

    I actually got the bellroy to replace my flipside, which I used for several years. It's slimmer while at the same time holding more. The lack of hard corners also makes it more comfortable.

    +1 for bellroy:

    http://us.bellroy.com/products/very-protective-wallet#video

    just got one myself and I comfortably keep about $40 in cash, 6 cards, an id, 3 club cards and a boker plus credit card knife. gotta love the feel of quality leather. still lighter and more comfortable than anything else I've ever used.

    Just looked at the HUMN wallet...interesting but what keeps the cards from just sliding out? Looks to me that they could easily dump out the bottom.
    I have the Bellroy small wallet and just ordered the slim sleeve wallet. The small is ok but no way it will hold all that is claimed and still allow easy access. I have 8 cards and cash in mine and if I dont micro fold anything in the middle, the zipper hangs.
    Saddleback small will break cards if you cary much cash in the center slot. Ask how I know...
    Saddleback bifold eats cards like my teenager on pizza night. Ask how I know that also if you like
    Flipside didnt hold what I needed and was too bulky for my liking....

    I use a Big Skinny Leather Mini Skinny. I can hold 10-12 cards and I am able to slip a few bills in it as well. I am also getting a small money clip to be able to separate my bills from my wallet, since I don't carry cash that often.

    The elastic band is quite strong. I have not had an issue with anything sliding around. My CDO* has me always trying to line all the cards up and alternating the imprint.

    Now that is cool. I am a leather guy, but the design on that is elegant. Their strata minimalist may very well be the one I jump to from my current chiropractors nightmare.

    Thanks!

    Hey if you like the dash wallet they've got a campaign on indiegogo- http://www.indiegogo.com/dashwallets

    While I was in the States I bought a tyvek wallet by Mighty Wallet and as far as trimming down the bulk goes it worked an absolute treat! I love it! Too bad I can't buy them here :(

    I have been using the HuMn Mini for the last month or so. It's a nice wallet but not for me. I find it a bit fiddly to open in a shop and get my cash or card out. I carry it in my front pocket with coins and the black is starting to come off.

    Here's a photo, not the best but give you an idea.

    I've just ordered a Saddleback Leather Wallet Sleeve.

    An alternative idea in the HuMn wallet: get a single plate and band. An open face wallet if you dare. A card directly on the plate is protected from scanning (verified) and quite compact. (I have a spare plate for this, holds low use cards in my pack.)

    Or DIY for the cost of a bunch of broccoli. (The ones sold with a big rubber band, bonus broccoli.)

    This forum is going to get me into a lot of trouble with my wife...I didn't realize that I need a new wallet until just now.
