In Search of the Perfect Smartphone Wallet

Being the gadget and consolidation freaks that we are, we're always on the lookout for the new and stylish ways to carry around our gear. Which is why we've taken it upon ourselves to try and find the perfect gadget wallet out there. Here's a few of the more popular options we've found so far...

For those looking for a bargain and a Swiss army logo, you can grab this diary-like wallet for $15. However, we personally think the button clip takes up an few additional centimeters that we can do without.

Those seeking a more old-school look with an elastic band, you can check out the Hard Graft Phone Card Wallet for $120. We've tried finding this bad boy of their home site, but it seems they've stopped production of it as of last year.

If you prefer to just stick with what you've been comfortable with all along, you can add a slot for your cards and do away with the wallet altogether. Above, the Speck CandyShell Card for iPhone4 for $40 keeps things pocketable while allowing you to stick all your cash and cards in the built-in slot on the case.

After a few hours of hunting around, we quickly realized that gadget wallets that many options out there simply add to much bulk. Unless we're on a mission to stretch out all our jean pockets, the only situation where these are practical is if you tend to carry your stuff in a purse or bag. Maybe we should just grab an extra-thick rubber band and call it a day.

Any good finds out there, readers?
