I have some questions about the Clear Organizer Wallet and related accessories.
My father and I work in construction. We are outdoors much of the time, for work and for play. In the summertime, he likes to wear thin-fabric athletic shorts. (The cloth kind with the elastic waistband.) In the winter, he wears denim jeans part of the time, but cloth sweatpants most of the time. With the exception of the jeans, most of his outdoor-wear does not offer the best pockets. (Often no rear pockets at all; only front-side pockets) He sees the shorts and the sweatpants as a necessity based on the season temperature.
My father stopped using his bulky old leather wallet years ago. The old wallet was so bulky it would only fit in his jeans. He never carries a wallet in his sweatpants or shorts. He has a nasty habit of carrying disorganized wads of cash, cards and ID in those pockets, and then he has to sort through them to find anything. I'm afraid he'll loose something valuable doing that. I was thinking any ordinary wallet might befall the same fate... and if he lost the wallet, he'd loose everything.
Then it occurred to me: what about the Clear Organizer Wallet from Tom Bihn? Could he hook a keystrap to the corner keyhook on the wallet, and then the other end of the strap to the outer edge of his pocket, to keep it secure? Would this work? Or maybe hook the strap to the elastic waistband?
I'd like to solicit comments from Clear Organizer Wallet owners, to see what they think.
(NOTE: most of his shorts and sweatpants do not have belt loops and he doesn't wear a belt with them as a result.)
Also: what do you use your C.O.W. for? Do you ever carry it without it being in another Bihn bag? If so, how do you use/carry it?
Thanks in advance.
