i'm surprised the Nomatic slim minimalist wallet didn't make this list. it's one of the best slim wallets I've used.
The Nomatic Wallet is a super well designed, sleek, and slim wallet and is what I carry! I really like how the pull-tab works, and the design is impeccable
That Tumi slim wallet, bar none; I've used GoVo, Dango, MagPul, T.H.E., Saddleback and others that I can't recall. And each time, I've gone back to the Tumi. I'm on my second one now, only because I love the new look. I cannot recommend Tumi enough.
Big Skinny wallets are a solid choice for a conventional wallet

For a non-conventional "wallet" try a Card Cling stuck to the back of your phone. Holds about 3 cards and a folded large denomination dollar bill (for emergencies)-- Which is all most people need for daily carry in the 21st century.
No Trayvax? I love all their wallets. Currently on the Contour. Loved the OG 2.0 and Axis. The Summit is pure minimalist.
