Considering I've been front pocket carrying a Sergeant or Rookie wallet for around 3 years now, it's honestly hard to remember the days of carrying a bulky wallet in my back pocket. But I can definitely remember the pain (literally) & annoyances of back pocket carry. So today, I wanted to list 5 of my top reasons for switching to Front Pocket Carry for my wallet.
The #1 reason that I have for carrying my wallet in a front pocket is that it's way more comfortable. For me, the switch to front pocket carry is the equivalent of sleeping on the ground versus a luxurious mattress. You simply have to try it to understand how comfortable it is.

If you're sitting on your ID's and debit cards all day/every day, they're going to wear out a lot faster. But, when you front pocket carry, the only wear you should see is whatever happens under normal use from swiping them at the store.
Super tough front pocket wallet: "Fire Hose Sergeant"
I can still remember how much of a pain it was having to remove my wallet every time I sat down. And if I didn't, I would pay for it about 20 minutes later when my butt, all the way down to my ankle fell asleep.
With front pocket wallets, this is a thing of the past!
It's a whole lot harder for a picket pocket to reach into someone's front pocket to steal their wallet. For one, you'll most likely see them. And two, your front pockets are typically a lot tighter and it takes deliberate force to get your wallet out.
Functionality is, of course, the most important thing when it comes to every day carry. But we all want our gear to look awesome too. And nothing beats the simplistic look of our front pocket wallets. They minimal, rugged and come in a ton of different colors & materials.
