For all the guys out there, if you are putting your wallets in your butt back pocket when you sit down please don't, there are reports from the NyTimes and BBC that says that they maybe one of the causes of lower back pain.

The condition is known as sciatica, basically it's caused by general compression and/or irritation of one of five nerve roots that give rise to the sciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve itself.

So what can you do? First move the wallet to the front pocket, but our wallets are so big that putting them in front results in an unsightly budge. So what to do next. Perhaps a look at one of these skinny/slim wallets might help.

They all roughly promised that they can put about 20 cards and notes and still being thinner than a normal wallet. Most of them dont have coin compartments , they have slots that put multiple cards together instead of the normal one slot one card in normal wallets. With the reduce height, they are suitable for putting in the front pocket.

Here are 2 that I found on the net that seems quite popular among the skinny wallet advocates.
