I'm looking to get some kind of himber wallet to use for packet tricks. Any recommendations?

I would like to be able to do a skinner's monte routine where I put the gaffed cards back in the wallet, and then if a spectator asks to examine the cards, I can open the wallet again and hand them ungaffed cards. Bonus points if it's locking where the spectator can open the wallet themselves and examine the wallet without finding the hidden gaffed cards.

I would also like to use some kind of himber wallet for Stand Up Monte, where instead of putting cards in my shirt pocket, I put them inside a himber wallet. So I would need to be able to access both compartments a few times throughout the routine rather than just a single switch at the end like for Skinner's Monte.

I'm not interested in a wallet that looks like a normal man's wallet like for carrying credit cards and cash. Just a thin card wallet to hold a packet trick in one section, and the matching ungaffed cards in the other section. I'd be open to getting two wallets, one that's locking and examinable like for Skinner's Monte, and a second that easily allows me to switch cards back and forth multiple times, but isn't examinable and can't be handled by the spectator.

I feel like getting some fancy folding or locking wallet may be overkill. You could just use a regular small packet wallet (that super cheap one that's plastic and folds in half, with two plastic windowed sections), and have a second ungaffed set that you have in your pocket. Just put the wallet with the gaffed cards into your pocket, and if they ask to see the cards, pull out the ungaffed set.

Robert Giobbi's The Prophecy actually comes with a nice quality Himber Wallet, in the older traditional style with a clasp.

How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.
