Travel Products - A nice wallet or case for digital cards multiple formats (SD, CF, XD, SIM)?

I would like a wallet or hard case for keeping my motley collection of digital media cards. I have SD, MiniSD, MicroSD, XD, CF, SIM, and USB sticks. Unfortunately, nearly everything I have seen so far is designed for just one or two formats.
I did find a Chinese-made soft wallet (http://www.ebay.com/itm/170802118916?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649) with vinyl sleeves similar in design to CD wallets, and which holds a few different card sizes, but I was hoping for something of finer construction (e.g., leather wallet or aluminum hard case).
I'd like to know, too. Good idea.
The only thing that has me hesitating is that the data would still be on those cards when I put them in there, unless I format each card and download the data, which I will not do. I know me, I'm lazy. This means that if i lose the wallet it will be a) a huge loss of date, b) quite a bit of value for the cards and c) someone else would see all the pictures and files which I wouldn't want.
It might make more sense to just keep them in a little box or envelope at home and only take those cards you really need. One in the camera, one in the camera bag and one in coat pocket or in your wallet.
With three cards of decent size one should be fine for quite some time.

For my photo SD cards I use the MX-S5369

Think Tank Photo Pixel Pocket Rocket (http://www.thinktankphoto.com/products/pixel-pocket-rocket-memory-card-holder.aspx)
I like this one and usually clip it to one of the inside compartments of my camera backpack.
Or try a Lowepro DMC-Z (http://products.lowepro.com/product/DMC-Z,1928.htm). Available in a lot of retail stores. This one is a little bit stiffer but holds less.

I thought I'd report back with my findings. I stumbled across this while browsing in B&H Photo the other day, and it was too good to resist:
Sure, it's overengineered and not as compact as I might like, but it supports a hodgepodge of formats better than most. Because of the way it nests larger cards on top of smaller ones, I can trap tiny stuff like SIM cards and USB bluetooth radios behind a large card.
