I wanted something that would protect my credit cards. It is very slender and stylish looking. It holds a lot of cards. I had so many open slots since I wasn't taking my usual amount of cards like store and restaurant rewards cards. I am seriously thinking of switching my current wallet to use this because of the amount of card holding spaces it has. I find it so frustrating to have so many store/restaurant rewards cards because I can never find one wallet that will fit them all. This wallet also has two zippered pouches on both sides which is great to put dollar bills on one side and coins on the other. Some of you may be saying who carries cash these days...but I'm kind of old fashioned and do like to have cash on me and I still use it! LOL. It was so slender and sleek and it fit perfectly into my backpack small pouch purse I use on trips. I definitely recommend this wallet and it's an added bonus that it has the RFID blocking.
