    When I'm carrying my backpack, inside a zippered pocket that's inside the main (also zippered) compartment. I'm quite confident no pickpocket can get to it without me noticing.

    A couple years ago I saw a pickpocket grab the wallet from an old man's back pocket and run away. Since then, if I need to keep it handy, I always keep it in a front pocket.

    I made it myself out of a tyvek envelope, so it's as thin as 3 or 4 cards.

    I'm a big, big fan of taxi wallet (link below). I changed to front pocket carry and the taxi wallet a couple of years ago and have not looked back. This wallet has ample pockets everywhere for everything and makes the perfect travel wallet. I'm very tough on wallets and usually eat one up every year but this taxi is on year two and going strong. The leather definitely looks "seasoned" after 2 years of daily carry but this bad boy is still in perfect structural condition and the only reason I would buy another wallet would be to buy another taxi in a difeeredt color.

    I'll be danged, that is the 1st I ever though of it. Makes good sense. In a hold up that would allow you to draw your wallet and toss it to the side with your left hand, an excellent distraction for drawing your sidearm (for righties)--just don't know if i can handle that kind of change though. I think my spine has adjusted for right rear wallet carry.

    Used to carry my wallet in back right pocket for over 30yrs, but not only was that uncomfortable, it also caused numerous credit cards to break. Just got myself a Billykirk N0. 92 CARD/CASH CASE where I keep my essential cards and it fits comfortably in my right front pocket, even when wearing fitted jeans. Cash I just fold and keep in my right back pocket.

    Front right. If I'd ever start to pocket carry, it would probably move to front left. I like it in front because I can't stand sitting on the lump.

    I carry my leather wallet in my back left pocket with its chain hooked to a front belt loop, it's impossible to loose. Actually the chain has been shortened and now goes straight from the snap hook to the wallet.

    I usually carry my wallet in my back/right pocket. If I'm in a very crowded area I usually shift it to the front/right pocket.

    Same as swissgnr.. it in my right rear pocket unless I'm in Bart or another crouded area. I find I get less weird looks when I do this instead of constantly tapping my back pocket when anyone gets close to me.

    I carry a small clip wallet so I can't have it on any of my back pockets. Front left pocket is where it goes.
