Tactical wallets don’t waste a single square centimeter of space — beyond holding your cash and cards. They display function with every piece of material used: blades, bottle openers, RFID-blocking technology, and more. Once you see these, you won’t be able to live without them.
The Best Tactical Wallet Review
The Dango A10 Adapt Wallet is a compact, stylish, and tough RFID-blocking tactical wallet that is part of a well-rounded ecosystem of expansions and accessories. I tested an A10 with various additions, and found the compact wallet rugged, functional, and flexible.
In the base form, the A10 held four cards on one side and my ID on the other, and along with the optional Chassis Clip to hold cash, this was my daily carry. The compact form factor comfortably fit in my front pocket even when physically active.

The Gerber Barbill Wallet is a well-rounded tactical wallet. The slimline design mitigates the risk of theft by making it fit discreetly into any pocket. Though low-profile, it still holds seven cards.
The wallet holds cards with an elastic band, allowing it to fit cards of various widths and sizes. The heavy-duty stainless-steel frame protects what’s inside from drops or ending. The security bumper keeps the cards firmly in place.

United States construction, genuine leather, and blocking RFID technology—what more could you want from the Dango EDC wallet? However you’d answer that question, Dango delivers a ten-function multitool that slides into the chassis.
The Dango EDC packs function into a small unit: it holds up to a dozen cards, features an aerospace-grade aluminum, and sports a crossover of a smartphone stand, and weighs just two ounces.

The Magpul DAKA Everyday Wallet delivers capable tactical wallet technology without making it look too much like an EDC tool. Designed to display the best of both worlds, the wallet should satisfy EDC enthusasts as well as those who aren’t sold on hardcore tactical wallets just yet.
The wallet slots perfectly into your back pocket, front pocket, or chest pocket with its slim design. It holds up to seven cards, or a minimum of three. Its welded seams add durability. The permanent seals mean your cards and cash are safe from water damage and the entire wallet is also chemical resistant and non-hygroscopic.

The GOVO Badge Holder/Wallet helps users customize their EDC kit with three color options and delivers moderate functionality.
Users can secure the wallet with the metal pocket clip, or with an included lanyard. The lanyard seems like an ingenious inclusion — a lot of joggers and skinny jeans don’t have real pockets, and it could also be advantageous for security while traveling.
Four card slots mean no-nonsense — ID, two credit cards, and a wildcard spot. The spring-loaded card holding system has a reputation for reliability and facilitates a smooth release to make payments or flash your ID.

The Gerber GDC Money Clip is a highly capable crossover: weekly grocery shopping in the morning, building a wilderness shelter in the afternoon. You would have to be good with a knife to build a wilderness shelter with the wallet (what?), but we’re confident you could do it in a pinch.
The Gerber’s 1.75″ fixed blade conceals in a sheath on the front of the wallet. It has a textured finger groove, plus a grooved thumb rest to keep the user’s hand from slipping — even when constructing a wilderness shelter.
Still, the wallet stores easily with its slim design. Capacity is five cards.
The wallet features a pocket clip and is engravable.

Ekster’s Nappa Black card holder is a solar-powered—yeah, you heard that right—it’s a freakin’ solar-powered wallet. The sun’s rays fuel the tracking feature, so you’ll never lose your wallet again. On top of that, you get first rate RFID protection, as well as room for seven cards, a button-activated push mechanism to unleash your internal items, and the whole thing is wrapped in Dutch-German leather from gold-rated LWG-certified tanneries. How much more luxurious do you want? The wallet is lightweight, tracked from your smartphone, and as top-quality as you can get.

Nite Ize’s TSA-approved tactical wallet comes complete with RFID-blocking tech despite the grated body (don’t know how they do that, but kudos to them). Slash open boxes, pack in your carry-on, and use the high tensile Cash Wrap strap to expand, and hold your bills and cards.
Not only does it look great, but the stainless steel construction is heat-treated, low-profile, and built to endure. It also features a bottle opener, five wrench sizes, screwdrivers, and more — what else are you waiting for, a literal invitation?
