If you’re looking to clean up your carry, one of the best places to start is your wallet. The best wallet for your EDC balances slimness and capacity. You want a wallet that’s thin enough to carry comfortably in your pocket, but spacious enough to fit all your cards. Compared to ultra minimalist front pocket wallets that can feel cramped for storage or hard to use, bifold wallets can be both intuitive and spacious. In this guide, we’re showcasing the best bifold wallets that are slim enough to carry in your front pocket with features you’d want in your everyday carry.

As contactless payment cards get more popular, the risk that you’ll have your personal information gets stolen by skimmers increases immensely. Thankfully one of the slimmest and lightest front pocket wallets for EDC builds in protection against that very situation. Built into the super-thin X-Pac sailcloth material is a layer of copper that blocks radio signals emanating from your cards. So even though the wallet itself weighs less than a feather unloaded, it’ll protect you more than you might expect.

The problem with EDC wallets made out of traditional materials tends to be durability. Pioneer’s ION minimal EDC front pocket wallet is made out of unique 10XD and 3PN technical fabrics that, combined, make for a package that’s slimmer than a traditional leather wallet while being far more durable and resistant against the elements. In fact, it’s so resistant against moisture that far from being sweat-proof, you can just toss the ION into a washing machine to get dirt and grime off without having to worry about it breaking down. And with room for 6-8 cards and folded bills, it’s well-suited to be your daily driver.

The Wally is a great first EDC wallet, as it retains the convenience for carrying cash like a traditional billfold but sized down with excess removed for a much slimmer carry. There’s actually room enough for 12 cards in its two compartments and 30 bills in its center money clip, and Wally’s elastic retrieval system makes it quick and easy to access the essentials you need with a simple tug.

Nice list. Two other suggestions: The Saddleback "Slim Leather Business Card Holder" and the Big Skinny "Compact Bi-Fold Sport" (or even the "New Yorker")
