Wallet that does not suck?

I'm looking for:
- something to carry a half dozen cards + a few bills
- cards must not fall out, but must not be difficult to get in and out of their slots (this is a major problem with wallets I've tried)
- slots must not have coating or residue that rubs off on cards

Ideally:
- an outside slip pocket for hotel key cards
- RFID protection (if only for the placebo effect)

I would carry this wallet in my left front pocket along with keys. I don't really have any preferences other than what I just listed.

I think the Magpul DAKA™ Everyday Wallet works (except no RFID).

This one meets all your demands I think:

Credit Card Holder Double Zip Accordion with RFID

11 accordion style card holder slots in a separate zippered compartment. Separate zippered compartment for bills and coins and 2 additional credit cards and a outside pocket for ID's but can also be used for hotel key card. Seems to be getting great reviews as well!

I love my Ultra Slim Original from Allett. Highly recommended. I do carry in my from pocket with change, a small pocket knife, and keys. Available on Amazon and here:

Travelambo works for us. What wallet do you currently have that has these issues, by the way?

I've had this one since late '16. Has an ID window that would probably work for RFID hotel keys, or one of the regular card slots works too.

Bought this a couple years ago just to try (it was cheap enough) and ended up loving it. Using it ever since. Great design IMO.
