20 Best Metal Wallets

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, WALLETS By

If you’re looking to travel light, the slim metallic wallet may be just the gadget for you. In fact, it’s nearly wrong to call this sleek item a “wallet” at all, given the back-twisting, jean stretching connotations of that old leather tradition. Made for quick access and ultra-portability, the metal wallet is a no-frills and no-fuss EDC companion, eliminating bulk and protecting your essentials. Minimalist designs typically feature one or two case plates with a thin elastic strap for security, making it smaller and more lightweight than your average smartphone.

Don’t be fooled by its simple, paired-down look: the metal wallet packs a serious punch when it comes to long-term durability and safekeeping from potential RFID skimming devices. By casing your sensitive information in aluminum or titanium, you block electronic signals from passing through and keep your credit cards on lockdown. If you’ve been lining your wallet in tin foil for the same reason, it might be high time for an accessory update. Here’s a look at the 20 best metal wallets for safe and effective carrying of your everyday bare essentials.
