RFID blocking wallets & passport case
There is a great deal of concern about the new RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Data) chip found on your new credit cards and U.S. passports issued after October 2006. Apparently, the fear is that anyone can get acquire a magnetic reader for less than $10 and access all the information on the face of your credit card or U.S. passport. This has opened up the door for a few innovative products in the market place.
The Stewart/Stand Stainless Steel Wallet is not only unique and great looking it is also incredibly durable and prevents identity theft from occurring. The tightly woven stainless steel blocks the reader from picking up the RFID chip found on your newer credit cards and passport. Additionally, this wallet is razor thin, will not scratch or stain, and surprisingly does not have the thickness or bulkiness you find with the typical leather wallet. This woven stainless steel process has already been used extensively in automotive and aerospace technology, yet is brand new in this application.
If you are looking for a very basic passport cover, and looking for something quite affordable I would highly recommend the Travelon brand RFID Blocking Passport Case. This product only retails for $17.99 and will also protect your US Passport from unauthorized scanning. The passport case is made out of a very durable 1680 denier ballistic nylon appointed with leather trim.
This category is growing so quickly, the NLDA (National Luggage Dealers Association) has launched a new collection called the ID Guardian. This collection utilizes an RFID blocking lining in all their products. Whether you purchase a basic leather wallet or passport cover you are assured RFID blocking protection from ID Guardian.
