Should You Carry Your Wallet in Your Front or Back Pocket?

Should You Carry Your Wallet in Your Front or Back Pocket?

When men reach for their wallets, they usually reach backward, but is this really the best way to carry your cash? It’s time to answer the age-old question of, “In which pocket should I put my wallet?”.

In which pocket should you put your wallet?

We’ll cut to the chase -- you should put your wallet in the front pocket. By putting your wallet in your front pocket, you’ll be able to access it anytime. You’ll also reduce the risk of damaging your cards since your wallet stays nice and flat.

If you carry your business card wallet in your back pocket, someone can steal it without you noticing. This is especially true if you tend to walk in crowded areas. Plus, sitting with a wallet in your back pocket can be a literal pain in the a$$ -- especially if you have wads of cash in your bi-fold wallet.

What if your wallet doesn’t fit in your front pockets?

If it’s impossible to put your wallet in your front pocket, at least purchase keychain accessories such as the Link Stretch Lanyard. Even if someone tries to steal your wallet, they won’t be able to get away -- it literally leashes your wallet to your belt.

Whether you go for the front or the back, it’s always a good idea to get an RFID-blocking wallet that protects you from electronic pickpocketing. One of the best RFID minimalist wallets on the market is the Trayvax Armored Summit Wallet. It’s spacious enough to hold seven credit cards and cash, but slim enough to be inconspicuous.

But it’s possible to put your wallet in your front pocket, please do! It’s the best way to protect your cash and cards safe from pickpockets.
