    oh yes, thank you very much, time to convert to inches, lol.

    I love my iphone's conversion app. ;)

    Thank you very much.

    Could you provide a picture of the one you have?

    Edit:

    I think I am going to order one!!!

    Seems to be the perfect size.

    Could you give me the total length when opened please!?

    Nevermind, you dont have to give me the length.

    Just saw that they have free overnight shipping on all orders!!!

    Had to get it, I have been searching for years for the perfect wallet.

    Here's to hoping that this will end the long search!

    I still haven't found a wallet that stores all the stuff I like to carry
    around, so I split it up and distribute it in different pockets.

    The CountyComm LA Wallet is nice for IDs, license, registration,
    and maybe some business cards. Nicely designed.

    But my main wallet has become a monster. If I sit down too
    hard I can injure myself... :(

    Thank you very much! I have ordered one with free overnight shipping!!!

    I will let you know how I like it. I take it that your money is smaller than ours here in the US?

    Do you have the length on the wallet?

    Take care

    I recently switched to the slim clip for cash and cards and it is working well. My old $.99 special is now riding in my Bill's urban wallet holding the cards I don't use often along with my edc gadgets (leatherman tool,sharpie stainless,parker jotter and gerber razor knife)

    Hi Matt,

    Our cash is shorter, but taller than the US Bills. So they don't exactly fit into this wallet. Just measured, the wallet's open length is about 8 inches.

    i got the most heavy duty velcro i could find at the craft store. The stuff has a very very sticky backing... no need to sew just cut a little piece that fits across the bottom and stick on... mine has been going strong for a several months.

    actually now it's pretty worn in and i could do without the velcro...

    The wallet is perfect!! The out flap is just barely the size of the bills and the interior leather piece is just below the bills for easy access/vision to the bills. Not sure how the wallet will look with it full of cash.

    Finally!

    My years and years of searching for a small bi fold wallet has ended.

    Thank you very much!

    Take care
    -Matt

    I think that Fossil Front Pocket Wallet is just what I have been looking for! Where did you guys order it from?

    Link to Fossil Wallet.

    I have been loving mine since I received it. The outer leather is just a tiny bit taller than U.S. currency and the inner leather piece is shorter than U.S. currency. It makes it very handy to see your bills when opened but the outer leather covers the money up so it can't be seen by anyone looking at it straight on.

    Absolutely love it!

    Ive had an ACM since the first model came out, 6 card silver finish, its very well made and reliable etc, but its pretty bulky for what it is.

    It definately protects your cards better than a normal card wallet, but ive never had a card have a problem from rubbing together and if it does they are easily replaced.

    It does have huge downsides though - a 6 card unit has to have 6 cards in it. No more (obviously) and with less you will often cross paths making the slide not function correctly (thats not fun trying to buy something with your new gadgety wallet that refuses to slide out your card, trust me, lol). So i guess if you own 6 or 12 cards, no more no less, they have a model for you that is perfect :)

    For several years I used something like this:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BNKGH8/ref=s9_simz_gw_s0_p193_t1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=0CQ25N42EWRGVX8M2XC1&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938131&pf_rd_i=507846

    I used to place 4 cards a some bills in the thing and for someone who hates wallets I was really happy with it, what I really liked about this kind of wallets is that you hardly notice them in your pocket. Now the minimalistic in me only holds some bills with a rubberband ;D

    Well the Fossil Front Pocket ID Bifold is currently out of stock so do any of these other small wallets similar? I think the size was close to 4x3, but it is not bigger. Also it must be a bifold with no money clip. I am looking at a few All-Ett, but I cant see a size on them. Is the Slimmy a bifold?

    There is always the MaxPedition wallets. They have two small ones. Never tried em but there will be reviews around im sure, plus im pretty sure cutlerylover on youtube has a review of one of them.
