I got my FlipSide wallet (see 432521's post above), a green one, the other day. It's very nice but probably not worth the $45 I paid. Still glad I got it. Holds everything I want to carry. We'll see how well it holds up with use. I have a feeling that if I dropped it, that would be the end since it's hard plastic.

I have had my black one for a while now; close to a 7 months; and I have dropped the thing to many times to really count and it is still working perfectly. I have a niece that is one and I let her hold and play with it when she gets bored and she chucks the thing across the room and it is still holding up fine. The only thing is that the outside is scratched up.

Had a Todd's cardholder as a daily use and loved that one too... it's now relegated as my work only items wallet

I have a tri fold clear plastics to put pictures and my tip chart, in the back of the wallet there's another plastic insert that says credit cards.

I actually use this for my drivers license, then the regular slots for my credit and charge cards, shoprite , cvs, aaa card, other peoples' business cards. it's not a coach or Loui Vuitton wallet, but I got it at either TJ Maxx or at the outlets near me.

One day I came across this wallet and just had to have it. By far the most durable (and best looking) wallet I've ever had. Santos de Cartier 6CC wallet

Nice wallet... how thick does it go? I dont like thick wallets as it tends to pull down and bulge out the suit jackets

I'd like a nice thin leather bi-fold wallet, but I don't want metal accents (could scratch something) and it needs to hold 8-10 cards. Usually the luxe wallets max out at 6 cards.

With 6 cards in it, it is a little thicker than 1/2 inch. I like the size of it and took a few pictures for you. With no cards in it, it is very flat (last pic).

This seems like it would work perfect for you. It can hold 8 cc's and there is room for 2 more (maybe 4) under those 8 pockets.
