#4 Aluminium Indestructible Wallet – A great pick for travellers
This super slim wallet is made of aluminium. It is perfect for those who have a lot of credit/debit cards. This wallet keeps your credit/debit cards safe from RFID scanners used by thieves.
#5 Number of credit/debit card slots
Avoid stuffing your credit/debit cards along with other items in your wallet as the card tends to bend over a period of time. Go for a wallet with proper credit/debit card slots. You can choose a wallet with at least 4 slots to store these cards.
#6 Size of the wallet
Go for a medium sized wallet which doesn’t bother you while you are seated. An oversized wallet allows you to stuff more which makes it messy whereas a smaller wallet doesn’t hold your essentials properly. The ideal size of your wallet should be 3.5” X 4.5”.
#7 Separate coin pocket
Storing your coins anywhere in the wallet could cause damage/scratches to the cards and other items in your wallet. Choose a wallet with a separate pocket or compartment for coins as it keeps your wallet organized.
