And I've discovered 3 pitfalls the different minimalist wallet makers tend to fall into. If you use these tips you should be able to avoid these pitfalls.
But let's get started with Tip #1...
I've found that the metal minimalist wallets can be quite abrasive on your cards.
The scraping you see in the picture below is only from 3 weeks of use.
The card still works, but you can imagine if I kept using the wallet for a full year, the card probably would've been ruined.
Minimalist wallets have a problem with it being difficult to pull cards out of the wallet. A pull tab makes this process much easier.
It's not hard to find a minimalist wallet with a pull tab. Personally, I won't buy another minimalist wallet that doesn't have one.
To fit comfortably in your front pocket, a wallet should be below half an inch thick with 7 cards inside.
Half-inch is the threshold where a wallet will fit so comfortably in your pocket that you can't feel it.
How do I find out the thickness of the wallet before I buy it?
I have measured tons of slim wallets. And to save you time, I put together a free guide to help you find the perfect slim wallet.
The guide will even tell you my favorite minimalist wallet.
