So 2 slots only and romove the places for key and cash? cause these two things can be put with the cards as wel. :unsure:
Well, it only gets uncomfortabe if there is irregularities on the side touching the body. If the key pockets would be on the same side as the belt loop there should be no issues with comfort. However it would be slower to access, as one would have to take the wallet off the belt to get to the key pockets.

yes, generally people don’t handcuff you from the front, and if they do it’s a mistake. Everyone’s skill set is different but it is much easier to get out of bindings with your hands in front.It also depends on your situation, or level of danger, who you are trying to evade. are you internationally traveling, or just walking home through dangerous streets, or work related, maybe detainment from an agency ( I won’t get too specific but you definitely want the key behind you)

A lot of companies design pants with hidden key cuffs in the back waistband.
Yeah the cool thing about the IWB pouches is you can move them freely around the waistband, so whether someone would be carrying it 6 o'clock, appendix or 3 o'clock it all is possible with the same design. Btw I like carrying my Handcuff key tucked either in one of my shoes or taped inside my belt. Some shoes like the Salomon even have handcuff key pockets in them.

They're not handcuff key pockets, the're shoelace pockets so you don't get your laces tangled while trail running.

When it comes to these smaller wallets you should find out if you can get RFID blocking material. A good portion of people these days won't buy a wallet if it doesn't have that feature!
I would argue that having RFID blocking material is almost useless, however most people still look for this feature.
It is an extremely popular selling point, despite the fact it's not likely. I suppose however that it couldn't hurt, and it helps to market the product.

I would still rather have it then not regardless especially with the changing world and the economy. Regardless if criminals are not doing it right now it is 100% able to be done and proven it can be done.

Also that article you linked is from 2017 and is false on facts that no reported crimes have been done with this method when there has been. While it is still very low its a possibility and personally I rather have it than not.

Also one last point is the people ever think that are writing those articles that because RFID blocking technology is used in majority of wallets and purses now that that is why criminals are not wasting their time with it.
