About Front Pocket Wallets

For years, men have carried their wallets in their back pockets. But experts agree that carrying a wallet in a back pocket is problematic:

  • Sitting on your wallet can cause back pain and misalignment.
  • Back pocket wallets are easier to steal.
  • Back pocket wallets are easier to lose.

There is no real benefit to wearing a wallet in your back pocket.

Yet it is understandable that many people avoid putting these wallets in their front pockets. Even though it is better for your back, more convenient, and easier to protect, keeping a wallet in your front pocket comes with its own concerns:

  • It is uncomfortable.
  • It creates an awkward bulge in your pocket

Some also find that these wallets feel hot against the skin, push into the leg, or cause them to sweat.
