About Rogue Industries

Founded by Michael Lyons in 2007 in Portland, Maine, Rogue Industries specializes in producing premium leather goods. Michael founded the company to create a solution to the design of traditional wallets, which he found bulky and believed they contributed to his lower back pain.

When he started Rogue Industries, Michael had no background in making leather products. However, this lack of experience didn't stop him. After learning about leather and design, he patented two front pocket wallet designs shaped to fit the front pockets' contours. Friends, family, and strangers tested the products, finding them more comfortable than other wallets.

With the positive feedback in hand, Michael and his son designed the company's website and developed a marketing strategy. They traveled to trade shows with their uniquely designed wallet, which marked the beginning of Rogue Industries. A short time later, they were in business.

Today, Rogue Industries sells a wide variety of leather goods online at their shop on the outskirts of Portland, Maine, and over 500 stores across the US. They have expanded their small, family-owned business and now offer a full range of leather products, including briefcases, totes, and duffel bags.

Rogue Industries products are sustainably made using responsibly sourced leathers, including American Bison, Canadian Moose Hide, and Icelandic Salmon. They guarantee the quality of their products, which come with a two-year warranty for workmanship and materials.

The press has even caught wind of Rogue Industries' innovative front wallets, with the company being featured in the Denver Post, Forbes, The Boston Globe, among others. The overwhelming consensus is that these wallets live up to expectations.

Rogue Industries' values include making great products, operating their business with integrity, having fun, and doing many good things. Their values extend to their community, supporting asylum seekers trying to escape violence and persecution by coming to the US. They also contribute to initiatives to end homelessness among veterans.

What We Like Best

  • Compact design
  • Contoured silhouette designed for front pockets
  • Anti-theft design
  • Made with RFID blocking materials
  • Plenty of space for carrying credit cards and IDs
  • Made from premium leather

Rogue Industries' Front Pocket Wallet stands out for its unique design. Empty this wallet's measurements are 5 inches x 3.4 inches x 0.25 inches, and it weighs only 1.4 ounces. The wallet's compact design makes it a pleasure to carry in your front pocket. If you prefer slim and trim to bulky, you'll appreciate this wallet's design.

You’ll notice The Front Pocket Wallet's design is similar to your pant's front pockets if you look closely. The wallet easily slips into the pocket of most jeans and slacks. Unlike the square corners of traditional wallets, the Front Pocket Wallet has rounded corners that resemble a shark fin.

Traditional wallets leave you vulnerable to pickpockets. Rogue Industries' Front Pocket Wallet design solves this problem. Carrying your wallet in your front pocket significantly reduces the chance that you'll fall victim to a pickpocket. Given the wallet's unique shape, it would be virtually impossible for someone to pickpocket you.

The Front Pocket Wallet doesn't just protect you from physical pickpockets, and its RFID blocking materials protect you from digital pickpockets too. RFID skimming has become a significant problem in recent years and can result in credit card or identity theft.

This wallet is slim, but it has enough room for 12 cards (there's a version that holds three cards) plus whatever cash you have on hand. Depending on which version you select, the wallet comes with one or two stash pockets and an ID window. It's made from premium bison leather.

The Front Pocket Wallet by Rogue Industries was selected as one of our best wallet picks.

What We Wish Was Different

  • More expensive than traditional wallets
  • Card slots are a bit tight

There's a lot to like about the Front Pocket Wallet by Rogue Industries, but as with all things, nothing is perfect. The Front Pocket Wallet costs more than your average wallet, which may be a consideration for those on a tight budget.

Of course, you're getting top quality craftsmanship and a unique design for the price. You could purchase a couple of inexpensive wallets for the price you'd pay for this wallet. For the price, you will get a durable wallet made from premium materials. If money isn't a concern, this wallet is well worth the price.

One of the best things about the Front Pocket Wallet is that it packs a lot of features into a wallet with a small profile. This wallet has plenty of space for all types of cards, including your ID. However, the wallet's card slots tend to be very tight, making it difficult to fit cards into them.

The tight card slot problem seems to resolve itself after a few weeks of using the wallet. To speed up the process, you can try massaging the leather or applying a leather softener. You can also loosen up the slots by inserting more than one card at a time.

Wrapping Up

If you're looking for a wallet that slides into the front pocket of your pants or jeans, Rogue Industries' Front Pocket Wallet may be just what you're looking for. Made with premium leather, this wallet is attractive and practical. This compact wallet is ideal if you're looking for an alternative to bulky wallets traditionally carried in the back pocket.

The Front Pocket wallet is anti-theft by design. Since you carry it in your front pocket, it's almost impossible for pickpockets to steal. The wallet also comes with an RFID blocker, preventing your sensitive information from being skimmed by thieves. Given all of its high-quality features, the Front Pocket Wallet is worth considering if you're in the market for a new wallet.
