    Got 3 new credit cards in as many weeks; all with the damnable chip technology. I have given up my Saddleback front pocket for a RFID safe wallet that
    is a little bigger but affords protection against scanners in public places.
    I hate technology.

    Use a very bright flashlight and shine it through the cards. Locate the chip, and use a hole punch to remove it. Cards will still be valid. Don't do this with passports or state IDs/DLs, because that will invalidate them.

    I like the Mission Wallet in sharkskin, it's been very durable so far (I think I bought in 2009). I normally carry it in my front pocket addition to a very minimal Tumi wallet in my back pocket.

    I have a Bill's Urban Wallet too, but it's a little large.

    While there are some, most chip cards do not use RFID technology.

    I just buy minimalistic leather Nero wallet. I have new cards with NFC, so I was looking for wallet with RFID protection.
    So here is my new EDC wallet :)

    9 cards (debit and credit cards, ID and driving license etc), some bills and coins, some coupons...and it is still half size of my old wallet.

    All the RFID-proofing that's needed for credit cards:

    BigSkinny wallets are pretty cool. I've got three different models, the last 2 I just purchased last week on clearance - 80% off (Curve Bi-Fold for $6.38 and the Flip ID L-Fold for $7.48) at my local DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse). They're lightweight black nylon. My first one was a slim bi-fold (cant remember model name) which I purchased around Jan 2015 and it's still like new.

    I have gone with a Paul Smith leather wallet for a long time. It doesn't seem like it but it's a great, durable, and front pocket carry wallet.
