I carry this:

Prada - Saffiano Leather Money Clip Wallet - Saks.com

I have only carried this wallet since I bought it. I have a Louis V and several coach wallets, along with a coach cardholder. I haven't used them in months.

You guys got me to thinking about RFID protection. My BofA card has the chip. It never dawned on me before but I'm thinking now I should probably be concerned about that. Do any of you know of a good card holder that can handle at least 10 cards with RFID protection AND can carry cash/ID etc? Seems like it is hard to find all that in one item.

I have a LV card holder. Carries 3 cards on each side and middle pocket for a few bills. Clean and simple wallet for taking those few items you do need. Unless you like this instead.

Had that same case in graphite for 3 years and loved it before it started to show signs of wear. My GF bought be a Boss bi-fold which is much roomier. I'm still trying to get used to how big it is compared to the LV case.

I have the Savvy Caddy SC-24, and I wouldn't recommend it. The first couple weeks I thought it was awesome, it holds a ton of cards and true to advertisement its really slim and flexible and comfortable in the pocket. But the plastic card holder sleeve thingies are really not durable at all. I don't think I am especially hard on wallets, but after normal usage its been about 2 months and they are already starting to tear through the bottom on some of my cards. The manufacturer says that you can place two cards in each slot back to back (theres 12 slots, hence the SC-24 cause it holds 24 cards), but this greatly accelerated wear and tear and caused several to rip in the bottom. The slot holding my Sapphire Preferred and another card is the worst. I'm still using it until I find something better, but I had high hopes for this wallet and was really disappointed with the limited durability. Everything else about the wallet was great. Wouldn't buy it again or recommend it until they make future models stronger and with less wimpy plastic card slots inside.

Hmm I have the SC-32 and it holds up fine, even with metal cards and cards back to back. Maybe you just got a production outlier that wasn't as well put together; you should ask for a replacement or something.

I use my black/grey LV card holder in the US when I don't need to carry cash. But when I'm traveling to China I use a Ralph Lauren wallet.

For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
