Looking for: 1 Credit/License/ID Card + Money + Key holder
 
I'd like something thin that holds:

My Driver's License
My Medical (Insurance) Card
My Credit Card
My House Key
Some Cash

It should be possible to get it into a wallet as well when I don't have it stashed in my bike-pouch.

If it could open bottles and envelopes, and perhaps had an led light as well that would be awesome but these are all optional requests.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Or...

Does anyone have any alternatives? My goal is simply to have enough room in my tiny-under-the-seat pouch to hold my spare tube, tire-pryers, patch kit, cell-phone (Nokia 6615i, about 4" by 2" by 1/2"), and then the items I mentioned above that I need a holder for.

I've googled for a credit card holder dealy but all I found were money clips, I'd like something I can actually slide cards into. Also it would be nice if it were transparent so the Driver's License could be seen through it. I've been using a rubber band tied around all that stuff but its cumbersome to get anything out and then put it back.

Thanks!

aside from the bottle opener, letter opener, led crap you mentioned I think you are looking for one of these. http://www.coach.com/shop/product_no...c=&easyask_id=

You could try one of those executive type pocket business car holders...

How about a zip-lock bag? It's inexpensive, clear, and waterproof. If you need a bottle opener and/or led light, just throw one inside!

I have a wallet with a slide-out/insert that I keep everything that's essential such as a spare key for my Jeep, some extra money, a bank card, credit card and ID. I don't need a key for my house since my garage door has an electronic combo lock. Whenever I go for a ride, I pop the insert out and carry just that. I usually keep the insert along with my phone inside a small ziploc bag to keep them from getting all wet. I then throw the whole thing into my jersey pocket.

So I found a few cool things in my search:

Metal Credit Card Sized Tools For Your Wallet
Metal Laptop Case-style Card Holder
A Really Cool Aluminum Card Holder

If the third one weren't out of stock I think I'd grab it... $15.00 is not bad.

jakemoffatt 04-25-05 05:20 PM

Wow khuon thats pretty much perfect! Now to find one for my own wallet!

BTW, when I said it would be a bonus to have a bottle opener/led light and such... I don't need that stuff but its nice to have around you know? A little gadget like this should be multi-function, methinks.

I've been carrying an aluminum card holder as my wallet for about 10 years... It rocks. But you don't want the one pictured at your third link - it was the first one I had, and was built with a thinner-guage aluminum than most of its competitors; the hinge wore out in just a few months. I've been carrying the current one for upwards of 5 years without any problems of that kind. I wish I had some idea what brand it was... but I don't remember at ALL anymore! :(

Arkel makes a nice map case that also has a zippered pocket. I keep ID, cell phone, sun block, and chapstick in it.

el twe 04-25-05 06:47 PM

Hey Khuon: you ID has some weird stuff on the info. Might wanna clean that off before the cops pull ya over and ask to check your license...:D

I've got a clear plastic bifold fishing wallet that I use. I can see inside of it and its 100% waterproof. My one concern is that it doesn't stay closed and sometimes cards fall out. So I usually through a rubber band around it. I can't find a picture on the web but it cost me about a buck at REI.

Maybe you want somehing like this, kinda like a ziplock on steroids:

(the neck holder is optional, though ;))

ReLoad makes a great hip holster fanny pack bag that will hold all that and your u-lock also. I wear it all the time. It is a lifesaver.

Why on earth would you blur your face in one pic but not in the other, william hung, I mean Khuon. :p

I got overzealous with the blur tool in one and then decided I didn't care.

Witz products are pretty cool:

I like the SurfSafe. Great for all manner of wet/dry activities.

jakemoffatt 04-26-05 11:45 AM

Wow this has turned into a really awesome thread everybody!

I just found another awesome solution (This is one you may start using not just for biking!)

Its the Jimi Wallet

I think I'm gonna grab one of those. All of these ideas are great though, its very hard to pick one over the other...

Again, thanks to all for your suggestions!

"perhaps had an led light"--aren't there slim, little led keychain lights at places like REI, your local hardware store, or such?
