RFID Blocking Travel Wallets

Each day 400,000 pickpocket incidents happen globally. Protect yourself with a RFID blocking wallet and be armed with a cheap spare wallet today!

The wallet / purse is the most common and easiest item which card skimmers, pickpockets and robbers target.

As such, we recommend getting

  • a RFID blocking travel wallet or clutch purse (to prevent cards from being skimmed)
  • and a cheap spare wallet (as a loss minimization tool / a “get out of jail” card in threatening situations).

In this section, you will find the ultimate list of RFID blocking travel wallets in 2018 which we have painstakingly curated for all users, types and budgets.

Background: Why RFID blocking

 

1. RFID blocking front pocket wallet for men / women

 

2. RFID blocking bifold travel wallet for men

 

3. RFID blocking small travel wallet for women

 

4. RFID blocking travel clutch purse for women

 

5. Cheap spare wallet

 

6. RFID blocks

 

 

First, why RFID blocking? 

If you carry a credit card, your cards can get swiped by a thief with a RFID scanner.

Credit cards / e-passports / key cards etc contain a RFID chip (there is a symbol of radio waves on your card), which is what allows you to make contact-less payments through radio waves.

However, a crook walking by with a device can swipe your credit card’s numbers, expiration date and personal information from other cards as well, as shown in the following video:

 

 

Although some critics claim that the threat of RFID theft is overblown, we recommend not to be penny wise and pound foolish.

Getting RFID protection is cheap, can last for years and can bring you peace of mind on a holiday where all you want to do, is relax.

Note however, that a wallet advertised with RFID protection doesn’t necessarily block off all frequencies.

For instance, hotel key cards, company access passes etc generally operate at low frequencies of 125 kHz, while credit cards generally operate at 13.56Mhz (this is the range that is blocked).

 

1. RFID blocking front pocket travel wallet for men / women 

If you are a minimalist who do not wish to carry much out while travelling, the front pocket travel wallet is for you.

 

1a. Best performance: Saddleback Leather Front Pocket Leather Wallet

We highly recommend the award winning Saddleback Leather Front Pocket ID Leather Wallet (USD $49.00), for both men and women.

>> More details on product site

 

This product comes with a 100 year warranty – how many companies have you seen provide such a warranty?

This is because Saddleback is well renowned for using only the best materials.

So if you want a piece of luxury that doesn’t break the bank in the palm of your hands, this is the product for you.

However, a word of warning, this front pocket wallet by Saddleback is going to feel really stiff and snug when you first receive it. It will take a bit of time for the leather to be broken in and stretched.

 

What others have to say

Simply stated, Saddleback is superior

By Kevin McElfresh

 

I can’t say enough positive things about Saddleback leather and the whole Saddleback crew. This is an outstanding wallet. In quality and utility, this wallet stands above the rest. I’m a bit of a “wallet guy”, so I’ve gone through more than my fair share of wallets in my life, from all sorts of places.

 

I have hovered around Saddleback after hearing about their products, years ago. I finally visited their website. On their site I discovered that Saddleback leather is truly everything that leather itself ever should and could be and probably more than it’s customers ever thought it would be.

 

Husband happy to pay for dinner now that his wallet is so cool!

By Laurelby

 

This has to be the absolute best example of a low-profile ID card wallet available, the craftsmanship and quality of the leather are like nothing I have seen from department stores.

 

My husband had been looking for a replacement for his slim bi-fold wallet, so I surprised him with a Fossil slim wallet with exterior money clip, which was a nice quality wallet-but even empty it looked more like something that should be in George Castanza’s back pocket. So disappointing!

 

But then he remembered a thread on Reddit about front pocket wallets and found this Saddleback model mentioned dozens of times, so I returned the Fossil wallet and bought him this one instead. Needless to say he loves it, and frequently takes it out of his pocket to show our friends, or just to admire it and rub the leather.

 

Five stars

By Armageddon

 

I have had this wallet for almost 2 years and it wears in as though I just purchased it. It hold its shape to an efficient size wallet. It holds comfortably 6 cards. Pushing beyond this will damage the wallet.

 

This wallet is tough holds up to water efficiently and fits in most pockets. This wallet looks good, isn’t very expensive and has a warranty that’s as good as life insurance. For me I will never get another wallet again and I have said that before only to be topped by this one. I am not a wallet snob and you will not be disappointed with this wallet!

1b. Best overall value: Vaultskin Chelsea Slim Card Sleeve Wallet

At a lower price point, the Vaultskin Chelsea Slim Card Sleeve Wallet (USD 24.99 – 29.99) comes with our strongest recommendation.

 

>> More details on product site

 

The team at Vaultskin has a real eye for design and have really outdone themselves with this front pocket slim wallet.

One thing that really stands out for us is the luxurious look and feel of the product. Although the leather used (natural cow leather) is not in the top end range like that of Saddleback, the wallet still holds its own here and is soft and durable.

Further, despite its slim and lightweight profile, it CAN hold whatever you need, with the strap making it easy to access any card you need.

One thing to note however, is that the fully natural leather will stretch a few millimetres after prolonged usage.

So to keep the wallet working well with the cards tightly in place, it is recommended to store around 6-7 cards – the optimal number to ensure all cards remain firmly in the wallet.

 

What others have to say

Exceeded expectations: Best slim profile wallet at ANY price.

By K.O.

 

This has to be one of the very few products I have purchased that have EXCEEDED my expectations. I bought one of these for one of my friends and one for myself. We used it on a trip to Europe so we could put our cards and money in our front pocket to prevent pickpocketing. The product is very well made using excellent leather and hold cards exactly as advertised. It is both thin and lightweight, and the design is simple and elegant.

 

In fact, I now intend to use it for my daily wallet. I see no reason to switch back to my old one. Just FYI, I am one of those extremely particular people who has extremely tight standards for personal goods. Simply put, price is no object; I choose the best product for the application. To me this wallet is just that.

 

BETTER than it Looks or Sounds in the Description!

By Timbo7

 

A lot of products sound good when reading the description, and even may look good in the photos but when you receive it, you’re disappointed. Well, I’m thrilled to say that you WON’T BE disappointed with this purchase. From the quality of the leather to the great design features such as a brilliant way to retrieve the cards hidden inside the wallet. It works flawlessly, and keeps the wallet slim for placing in your front pockets.

 

It also has a handy place to put a few bills in and/or your business cards. The RFID protection is a bonus feature, and “seals the deal” for this purchase. Oh, almost forgot, the box that it came in is stunning as well, and reminds me of the over-the-top quality of an iPhone box. Thankfully, the product inside exceeds the high standard set by the box.

 

Gift for my husband

By Meikacomehome

 

I took a chance and bought this as a father’s day gift for my husband. It was extremely thin and sleek which made me skeptical about him fitting all his cards in there (12 cards). He was skeptical himself but I told him to get started and fill it up. He did. And it fit perfectly without making it hard to pull a card out. It’s deceiving but functions the way it is advertised.

 

Keeps his subway pass in the front pocket for easy access. It’s soft and absolutely chic. Very well made with a great sophisticated look. My husband is “rough” when it comes to things and so far this measures up pretty well. I would definitely recommend this sleeve even for the toughest of persons!

1c. Best budget: Buffway Slim Minimalist Front Pocket Leather Wallet 

If budget is your key consideration, then you will not go wrong with the Buffway Slim Minimalist Front Pocket RFID Blocking Leather Wallet.

 

>> More details on product site

 

This product from Buffway uses genuine leather and stitching is sturdy enough for the price point (USD $9.99 – $15.99).

It is also super slim at only 0.1 inches thick – it may be better for those without many cards / bills to carry, but probably not as practical for those who wish to carry more cards.

Also, at only USD 10 for this product, the leather used belongs to the lower grades and may not be as durable if you were to use it frequently.

 

What others have to say

The one I’ve been searching for.

By Stan Andresky

 

Perfect! Honestly, I can’t imagine how you could improve the design.

 

I carry 3 photo ID’s, 1 credit card, 2 debit cards and my car insurance/registration cards. I don’t carry a lot of cash but the middle is perfect for a few bills. There are open slots I haven’t used but on purpose… I’m trying to keep it as slim as possible. I’m going to buy a few more just to have for future use.

 

Beautiful and practical

By Mr. Walker

 

This is a beautiful and compact small wallet. I’ve been using a bifold type for many years. This is thinner, shorter, and narrower and light weight. The leather and stitching look great, nice to have the ID window pocket and RFID blocking.

 

I cleaned out the extra papers and clutter from the old wallet and really like this one. It is light and thin so you hardly notice you are carrying it. I tried 4-6 cards and driver license in it, and some cash folded in half in the middle pocket. The max thickness is a little less than 3/4” thus filled.

 

Best Front Pocket or Thin Wallet

By Gary Gibson

 

Been using a slim front pocket wallet now for a decade or more. Naturally they wear out every few years. This is the best attention to detail, build quality, and the slimmest and most efficient one yet! Highly recommend.

 

Great color, usability, and best of all…thinnest design. Also noteworthy is the fact that the center money pocket is a bit longer than others. That extra quarter inch actually makes it much easier to put a wad of cash in or out without hassle! Loving it so far, even down to the thumb cut out to push the first card out, a very well thought out feature.

2. RFID blocking bifold travel wallet for men

If you find the front pocket travel wallet too small for your needs, then a RFID blocking travel bifold / trifold wallet will definitely suit your needs.

 

2a. Best peformance: Saddleback Leather Medium Bifold Wallet

If you are a leather connoisseur, you will appreciate the Saddleback Leather RFID Shielded 100% Full Grain Leather Medium Bifold Wallet.

 

>> More details on product site

 

As you can tell by now, we are huge fans of Saddleback. Only the most top notch leather and materials are used to create products that last a generation.

This workhorse of a product far beats any of those insanely priced, mass produced wallets from the big brands.

For this model range, we recommend the medium size wallet (USD $79.00), as it provides the best functionalities for its price point.

Again, the one thing to watch out for as with all Saddleback products it that it will feel really stiff the first time you receive it due to the quality of the leather.

Thus, you have to give the wallet some time for the leather to break in.

 

What others have to say

It has broken in beautifully, the light ‘tobacco’ color has aged into a …

By Joe

 

I have had this wallet for a year and a half. It has broken in beautifully, the light ‘tobacco’ color has aged into a gorgeous rich brown, yet the leather has remained tough and flexible. All the slings and arrows of daily use have only made it more beautiful, I fully expect this will be the last wallet I ever own.

 

After 18 months it shows almost no signs of wear, the stitching is as tight as the day I bought it, the card holders have broken in but have not loosened, and the inner lining shows no sign of wear. I would buy this again, but I don’t think I will ever have too, it is just that tough. Without a doubt this is the best wallet I have ever owned.

 

Ridiculously high quality

By G.

 

This was my very first purchase from Saddleback Leather, and it has ignited a passion that’s resulted in several more. I have never seen a wallet like this before. It’s rugged, yet classy enough for the board room. The craftsmanship and materials are just outstanding. Every inch of leather and thread just screams quality.

 

Whether you’ve been using expensive designer wallets or cheap crap from the big box stores, this will be a huge step up. If you’re thinking about buying one, there’s no need to hesitate – you won’t be sorry.

 

Wonderful wallet

By Gidimeister

 

Listen, it is a Saddleback. So you know it’ll take a direct hit from an RPG without so much as a crease. It’s tough, but completely at home with your fancy Italian suit.

 

As a few people have commented, it is quite stiff though (because of the thick leather used). If you are used to carrying around large bundles of cash, forget it, this wallet can only take a few bank cards / IDs / business cards and a maybe a bit of cash. But having said that, it really does feel like it can last forever.

2b. Best overall value (i): Vaultskin MANHATTAN Slim Bifold Wallet

If the Saddleback Leather Wallet is out of your budget, a highly affordable alternative is the Vaultskin MANHATTAN Slim Bifold Wallet with RFID protection (USD 32.99).

 

 

>> More details on product site

 

Sleek, practical and elegant are the three words we would use to describe the MANHATTEN wallet by Vaultskin.

As with all Vaultskin products, the design is on point, and the quality of the leather used means that this is a durable product that is very comfortable to touch and use.

One thing to note however, is that the wallet is only big enough to contain notes such as the US Dollar. To hold EUR or GBP however, you will either have to fold it, or use another slightly larger wallet.

 

What others have to say

Incredible quality, intuitive design, A+!

By Mark O.

 

(Paragraph 2 is where the review really starts) I was looking for a minimalist wallet and this is perfect for me! At first, I was hesitant because I wanted at least one more pocket (considering that people in the reviews say it’s difficult to hold more than one card in each slot; read what I have to say about that later, though) but I decided that if I wanted to go minimalist, I needed to cut back more and so I just bought it. It took me some time to figure out how to cut back but once I did, my pockets were so much slimmer and cleaner!

 

There are literally no cons to this product, hence the 5 stars! But I have detailed each thing that makes this product worth the review.

 

– Many people say that you can’t really hold more than one card in each slot, but this is only partially true. After about a month of using the wallet, the pockets loosened up just a tad; nothing to worry about. This allowed me to store two cards (driver’s license, which is relatively thin, and a student ID card) in the front pocket. I only have one card in each of the rest of the slots, but if you desperately wanted to put two in EVERY slot, then it’s possible but it would not be comfortable and it would just defeat the purpose of having a minimalist wallet.

 

– The quality is top notch (worth the price). It’s top grain leather which is the highest quality type of leather. It’s certainly durable and reliable.

 

– The design is simple but incredible elegant!

 

This wallet changed the way I carry things with me, and it has forced me to slim down but the rewards are worth it! You may want to read some articles on how to slim down your wallet if this is something you struggle with. There are many apps out there that you can store your information on securely and privately. Overall, this is a fantastic product and the results of going minimalist are well worth it!

 

The wallet I been looking for all my life.

By Peter

 

Best wallet I’ve ever had. Great functionality. I put 6 cards in, 8 bills and some lottery tickets and everything fits perfect while staying super slim. The leather is first class as was the packaging. The leather had no smell. I really like that the bills stick up above the liner a little for very easy access.

 

I looked at hundreds of wallets and nothing comes close to this for form, fit and function. If you want a minimalist wallet but don’t want to give up the ability to carry a bunch of cards and cash securely and with a lot of class, this is for you. I will buy again and get for gifts for my sons. Great company to deal with as well, they have great follow up.

 

This is a perfect travel wallet

By  Amazon Customer

 

This is a perfect travel wallet. Simple design, nice material, slim and fits easily in your front pocket for better security. Due to its compactness it does not handle currency that is larger than the U.S. dollar without hanging out. Solid product overall, but please note it is a travel wallet and cannot hold a lot of credit cards, id cards etc.

2b. Best overall value (ii): Pacsafe RFIDsafe V100 Anti-Theft Bifold Wallet

Another highly affordable alternative you can consider is the Pacsafe RFIDsafe V100 Anti-Theft RFID Blocking Bi-Fold Wallet (USD $21.95 – $29.95).

 

 

>> More details on product site

 

This is a really cool anti-theft wallet.

It has RFID protection, an elastic band to keep your wallet shut, a zippered compartment to conceal your notes, and also a detachable, hard-to-cut Dyneema webbing strap which adds another layer of protection by wrapping it around your wrist or securing to a belt loop while in your pocket!

If any thief tries to grab your wallet, the loop tightens around your wrist or belt, preventing the thief from escaping with it.

One thing though, is that the elastic band may take a bit of getting used to, since it’s not a common feature with other wallets.

The following video provides a great overview:

What others have to say

Great travel wallet!

By Hutch

 

I originally bought a traditional money belt to tuck under my clothes for an extended trip to Europe, but then I found this PACSAFE wallet and gave it a try. I put my belt through the loop in the security strap and kept the wallet in my front pants pocket. The wallet is a bid wider than most which makes it sung and a bit more difficult to get in and out of a pocket, but that’s a good thing. That makes it that much harder for pick-pockets to get to it, as well.

 

The wallet also features an elastic band to keep the two halves closed (another deterrent) and a handy zippered coin purse section. In Athens, a friend standing next to me had his traditional wallet stolen from a buttoned down, front pocket of his cargo shorts. That didn’t slow the thieves down one little bit. They probably noticed the security strap of my wallet connected my belt and decided to pick an easier target.

 

Anyway, I found this a much simpler solution than a money belt that you have to keep tucked into your pants (uncomfortable). The removable security strap does not have a steel wire in it but it’s made of a woven material that is difficult to cut through. They wallet is also RFID protected, supposedly.

 

Great wallet for travel or every day

By Snoopy1

 

This is the best wallet, never mind travel, that I have owned. I purchased it for the RFID safety feature, but after receiving it and looking at the organization and size, I was so impressed that I may make this my day to day wallet.

To hold your currency, it has two pockets for bills (one zippered) and a zippered change pocket. There are five slots for credit cards and a window slot for your driver’s license or other identification documents. It also has an elastic band to hold the wallet together keeping it slimmer.

 

Perfect travel or everyday wallet.

By J Quinlan

 

Perfect size, easily secured with the lanyard to a clip inside my purse. I can take the wallet out of the purse to use in a transaction, close it quickly and put it back into my purse, all while it’s attached to the clip in the bag. No worries about putting it down and forgetting it or losing it.

 

Seems very well made, good size for everything I need to carry….cards, ID, and cash. Highly recommend this!

What others have to say

Great overall wallet  

By Ryan

 

Seriously, I love all the pockets in this thing. I mean I don’t even have that many cards but I like the feeling of being able to have that many cards. Also, something really useful for me are the two pockets in the part where you would put bills. That’s really useful for me because for work I have to keep track of all the receipts I have on a certain card, and it makes organizing those so much easier.

 

One more detail I quite enjoy is that this wallet doesn’t seem to bend as much as other wallets I have owned in the past. It seems like every wallet I have ever owned has bent to the point where my cards crack and become unusable.

 

Sturdy Genuine Leather Men’s Wallet

By Annette S.

 

This item is very sturdy and has served my husband well. It arrived early and very well packaged. We liked that it was in a presentation bag and box. The workmanship shows the quality of care the company went through to prove their products are of good standard.

 

It’s similar to his old wallet that has just the right amount of pockets for his needs and likes the extra bonus of not having to always ‘fish’ out his ID with the flip pocket. Thank you for selling this item! I would buy this again.

 

Super Quality Wallet

By Zansus

 

This is by far the best wallet I have owned and for the price I am blown away by it’s functionality. I had 2 previous wallets that broke due to the demand of items I NEED to carry on my person at all times. I bought this wallet thinking it would fail after a few days but to my surprise the wallet turned to me and said “hold my beer, I got this” lol.

 

I’ve stacked it with, cards, business cards, paper notes and even coins and it’s been a champ throughout. Highly recommended wallet. Will refer this to my friends.

3. RFID blocking small travel wallet for women

If a front pocket wallet is too small for you and a bifold is what you like, a small travel wallet may be more suitable for your needs.

 

3a. Best peformance: ID Stronghold Ladies Trifold Wallet

Amongst RFID blocking small travel wallets, the ID Stronghold Ladies Compact Leather Trifold RFID Wallet (USD $44.95) is a great option.

>> More details on product site

 

As mentioned earlier, Identity Stronghold (ID Stronghold) is the pioneer and leading provider of RFID secure sleeves and badge holders to the U.S. government, since the early 2000s, and has featured on countless news stations.

The company has earned its way onto the GSA Approved Products List because RFID products destined to serve the Government had to be certified, and its products are consistently chosen by Government Employees (source: US Patent Office).

This leather trifold indeed does not disappoint. Elegantly compact yet roomy internally, well-constructed with soft leather, well designed with various compartments, zippers and pockets, and every pocket is entirely shielded, not something which every manufacturer does.

If there is one thing to take note of, a common complaint is that card holders slots are tight at the start. Thankfully, they do loosen after use.

 

What others have to say

Identity Stronghold is the BEST brand of RFID wallets!

By Nancy

 

I just love their wallets, I truly believe they are the best! It’s sad that it’s now so easy to steal a person’s identity with a very small unit that when it comes near your wallet, etc can steal your credit card info, license, and more. But, Identity Stronghold’s wallets protect everything at all times even when your wallet is open.

 

I first bought the two toned clutch which was very pretty & I was able to put lots in it. Then as a gift I was given a small wallet which at first seemed fine, but soon fell apart. I really didn’t mind as I adore wallets and purses! -) I went on to Amazon to look for another smaller wallet as my pocketbook was small and I bought the Identity Stronghold trifold and I just love it!

 

It holds so many cards, etc that some of my slots are empty and it has 2 snaps, so you can attach to either depending on how full your wallet is that day. It has 2 bill sections so your cash can lie flat. I put my larger bills or receipts in the back section and smaller bills in front. It has a clear slot to hold ID, license, whatever and is completely protected. It also has a change purse on the outside. I just love this wallet!

 

A great compact wallet.           

By Lynda

 

This wallet is a nice size, small enough to fit in a small purse, but very roomy inside. It has many slots for credit cards. It is a little thicker when filled, but has two different snap closures to account for that. I love that there are two sections for bills which is perfect for traveling when you might want a separate section for foreign currency. It is made of soft leather.

 

The only down side is the zippered coin section is tight.

 

Very functional wallet and looks good too

By  Devon

 

I shopped for over a year for a wallet that would be small enough to put in my small cross body purse but large enough to hold all of the cards of various sorts that we all have to carry these days now that so many stores and restaurants have shoppers’ cards. I was concerned because some people complained about the leather being stiff or snap not staying closed, but I thought I’d give it a try and return if I wasn’t satisfied.

 

I love it. It holds every card I have, I like the feel of the leather, and the snaps work as they should. The change compartment is a bit tight and it does take some work to get the cards out of their sleeves, but they will probably loosen with use and I usually dump my change every few days anyway. There’s one slot with a hole to put your finger on to slide the card out, probably designed for a driver’s license, but I put my most frequently used credit card there and it’s easy to get out.

The front features a raised metal ID Stronghold logo so you can feel assured that you are getting the best protection possible. Knowing your credentials are electronically secured, this wallet looks and feels great, making you look and feel great too!

3b. Best value (i): Pacsafe RFIDsafe W100 Anti-Theft Wallet

If budget is a concern, a great alternative is the Pacsafe RFIDsafe W100 Anti-Theft RFID Blocking Wallet (USD $34.95 – $44.58).

 

>> More details on product site

 

Another really cool and useful product from Pacsafe!

This small wallet is ideal for storing and organizing just the essentials you need (e.g. cards, keys, cash, coin), and has super effective anti-theft technologies (e.g. zipper all around, a clip to further secure to your belt/bag, RFID blocking).

Do note that you cannot fit a US passport in – that would require a bigger purse such as the Pacsafe W200 as reviewed later.

Great Wallet + Security Features

By Bdr

 

Finally – a wallet that protects ALL of the credit card and id slots! At first I was hesitant to purchase a nylon wallet, but I really do like it! The quilted exterior looks nice the material is of a high quality, and the zippered change purse on the outside is a nice size. The wallet is no larger than my old leather wallet, and it has lots more space! There are ample credit card slots and other compartments to hold “extra” cards/stuff.

 

The wallet has a zipper all the way around it, providing extra security from anything falling out. I particularly like that feature, as it makes me be sure to put cards and money back in their places, and zip up before moving away from the cashier.

 

The additional “leash” to fasten the wallet to the inside of your purse is great, too! If someone was able to reach inside my purse, they could not pull out the wallet and walk off with it without me noticing. Plus – the wallet is zipped all the way around for an extra bit of security, and they could not unzip it and remove anything from the inside of my purse.

 

The money (bills) section has 2 deep compartments – great for keeping the smaller bills separated from the larger ones you might not want to pull out for all to see.

 

I purchased the burgundy color and it looks as good as the day I first put it into use. The wallet is a bit pricey, but worth every penny! I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend this wallet for its outstanding security features and overall style.

 

Finally, my Goldilocks travel wallet!

By supergodmom

 

I bought the larger Pacsafes W200 and W250 for travel last year and, after trying them, decided both were too large for my travel needs but the W200 was perfect as my everyday wallet. I’m a fan of Pacsafe organization so decided to try this one for travel. Just right!

 

Easily holds/organizes the items I need when I travel and has enough room for my passport to slip in there, too, in a pinch. I keep my passport in a separate RFID sleeve I carry elsewhere so actually don’t need to carry it in a wallet. This version has two bill compartments, convenient for separating dollars from euros, or whatever the currency of the day is. There are also two cubbies behind each side of card slots for receipts, etc.

 

Like all Pacsafe wallets, this can be used as a wristlet or clipped inside your carryon or handbag for extra security. This one’s a keeper!

 

Perfect wallet

By fieldmouse

 

I absolutely love my new Pacsafe wallet! It’s well thought out and made…It’s perfect. The handy attached strap is the very thing needed to attach the wallet to the inside of my backpack or purse so will NOT fall out. I truly appreciate the zipper closing rather than having some type of Velcro…(which I hate!) This is the kind of wallet that can be used everyday not just for traveling.

3b. Best value (ii): Vaultskin NOTTING HILL Slim Zip Wallet

Another great alternative amongst small wallets which you can consider is the Vaultskin NOTTING HILL Slim Zip Wallet (USD $36.00).

 

>> More details on product site

 

This is an even smaller wallet if you just want to carry around the bare necessities.

It combines sleek style (top grain Italian leather), functionality (high capacity, signature pull strap, key hook and small item compartment) and security (RFID blocking, secure zip), which is nothing less than we would expect from Vaultskin.

If there is one thing we would like see improved, we would have wished to see the company use YKK zippers, which are at the top end of the range.

 

What others have to say

Love this wallet

By Emily Eddy

 

I have never written a product review before but I had to this time because I love this wallet so much. It is beautiful. The leather is so nice and the color is perfect. It has just the right amount of pockets and I love the money holder inside.

 

My favorite part is the hidden pocket to put your cards in. It has that handy little tab that you pull and your cards come out. I will have this wallet forever.

 

Really nice wallet!

By DP4A

 

This is just a great wallet. Just what I was looking for. Seems to be really well made, and sturdy. I currently have 7 non-embossed cards, 5 embossed cards, and 5 bills in it, but it’s still compact enough to fit comfortably in a front pocket. Cards will fit in the snapped coin area, but you won’t be able to snap it closed. Not a big deal imo. The two card slot with the pull tab is genius, and works well. Great for not holding up a line at the store.

 

The attachment point on the top is handy for a lanyard or key ring, and is securely attached to the wallet. Shortly after ordering, I got an email from vaultskin thanking me for my order, and providing contact info should anything be amiss when my order arrived. That was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend.

 

Also for women

By Grace Chin

 

I, a woman, who likes to own high-end handbags and wallets, purchased this for myself to fit into my smaller purses. It is perfect! It holds quite a bit and I love its subtle look. The quality seems great.

 

The coin “holder” is a bit too small to get fingers in, but everything else about it is just right. I wish I still lived in NY because it is perfect for pulling out a Metrocard on quick notice. Women can own this too!

3c. Best budget: Protectif Front Pocket Leather Wallet for Women

If buget is a key consideration, then the Protectif Front Pocket Leather Wallet for Women (USD $12.98) will work great for you.

 

>> More details on product site

 

For only around ~USD 10, this wallet works great in providing RFID blocking protection, and being slim and lightweight yet still highly functional.

But of course, at this price, we wouldn’t expect the wallet to last for very long if you were to use it really frequently.

It will still undoubtedly work great for infrequent trips where you do not wish to carry too many things around.

 

What others have to say

Perfect Travel Wallet

By Gwynne Young

 

I didn’t buy this wallet for the RFID blocking. That was just a bonus. I wanted a slim wallet that I could put in a tight pocket for traveling. This wallet was perfect. It has slots for the few cards I carry when I travel, and my license slid easily in and out of the front window. That was very convenient for showing my ID to the TSA agents.

 

It weighed next to nothing and was easy to pop in my jeans pocket or into a smell zipper pocket of my purse and backpack. I just spent a week traveling over spring break, and the wallet more than met my needs.

 

Perfect Slim Wallet

By Laura E.

 

I have been looking to slim down my wallet, especially when traveling or a quick run when you only need a card or 2, ID & cash. Received this yesterday & first impression is that it is perfect! It arrived quickly & in perfect condition. Small, well made, zipper works smoothly, cards slide easily in and out (without falling out) & the best part for me…a spot for cash!!

 

Unlike most people these days, I am still a cash carrier & the problem with most slim wallets is no space, other than maybe a bill or 2 folded. This has the zipper space, which opens wide enough to get in & out, while not adding thickness. Obviously, the more bills you put, the thicker it will become, but at the moment I have 12 bills folded, filled the slots & there is still room for more & still very thin! Time will tell how it will hold up, but for now it is exactly what I was looking for.

 

Slim, Spacious, Secure

By Kerry McCullough

 

It is a little wider than I prefer, but I knew that going in and wider profile fits cash folded over once in the zipper pocket. I was looking for something slim to replace my current wallet (an old Blackberry slip case) and it is the best I’ve found so far at being slim yet functional and not stressing over the number of cards I keep in there.

 

Also, I can no longer scan my door badge through the wallet, I have to pull it out, which is a good indicator that the RFID blocking is working as intended.

If you find the earlier wallets too small for your needs, then an elegant RFID blocking travel clutch purse that allows you to store and manage your cards, documents, phone and passport will best suit your needs.

 

4a. Best performance: Saddleback Leather Big Leather Wallet

This is the perfect clutch for travelling. Top notch leather and materials, RFID protection, 8 card slots, 6 compartment pockets, a loose-change pocket and a pen or pencil holder will help you store and organize all that are needed for your travels.

However, due to the quality of the leather used, this may weigh just a bit heavier compared to other products of the same dimensions.

 

What others have to say

Big Wallet – A woman’s view!

By Deena

 

I have slowly been transitioning from all other brands to Saddleback and I can’t tell you how pleased I am with my recent purchase of the big wallet in chestnut. Yes, I am a woman…and I typically have a large tote / handbag that I use to carry everything.

 

This wallet works great even if I were to carry it alone and I can still get my iphone 6+ in the back pocket with a larger Speck case in the event I need to grab it and run. Ample room to carry credit cards, money, change and a small pocket / passport sized notebook. If you like to be organized than this is the wallet for you.

 

I was always unsure about the button snap closures but they are strong and I don’t foresee them being an issue. It’s strong and beautiful all at the same time. Under your arm, as a clutch or in a handbag it does the job. Pen holder is a great touch – literally everything I need to grab and go.

 

So far, I am beyond impressed with each and every item I receive and the fact that it has a 100 year warranty makes me want to use the heck out of it without worry!

 

SBL Large wallet

By thisisjbrown

 

I bought this wallet as a keep-all travel wallet for my wife. As with all Saddleback products, the thick leather of the wallet makes for a sturdy product. The light brown color was a nice choice. The room in the wallet allows her to keep her passport in it (as we travel often).

 

My wife likes the wallet very much and has used it non-stop since she received it. Worth the money, especially when compared with other designer wallet prices.

 

Best Front Pocket or Thin Wallet

By Valissa Tisdale

 

This Wallet is amazing. The quality of the leather is AMAZING!!! This product is well worth the price.

 

I will use this as my travel wallet because it is big enough to fit everything. I am already getting compliments on it. I will definitely be purchasing more products from this company.

The collector’s wallet: the Saddleback Big Leather wallet features 8 card slots for your credit cards or business cards, 6 compartment pockets for passports, receipts, boarding passes or checkbooks and 1 coin purse for your loose change, guitar picks or bobby pins.

Strong RFID blocking material: strong RFID-shielding is sewn in between the full grain cowhide leather and pigskin to keep your credit card chips from blabbing your personal info all over the place when you travel.

High quality materials: the wallet is stitched with marine-grade polyester thread and reinforced with copper rivets for super durability. For added strength, it’s lined with a tough but soft pigskin lining, that is even stronger than the cow leather.

100% full grain leather: crafted from the most durable, most expensive, highest grade of cow leather (Full Grain), this wallet takes hits well and looks better with age. Much thicker and more heavy duty than typical, cheap genuine grade leather, the leather becomes soft and supple as it ages.

100 year warranty: Saddleback is so confident that it backs all its products with a 100 year warranty. The company’s motto is “They’ll Fight Over When You’re Dead”.

4b. Best overall value (i): ID Stronghold Ladies Clutch

If budget is a more important consideration than the quality of leather, then an affordable option is the ID Stronghold RFID Wallet Ladies Clutch (USD $39.95).

 

>> More details on product site

 

Identity Stronghold (ID Stronghold) is the pioneer and leading provider of RFID secure sleeves and badge holders to the U.S. government, since the early 2000s, and has featured on countless news stations.

The company has earned its way onto the GSA Approved Products List because RFID products destined to serve the Government had to be certified, and its products are consistently chosen by Government Employees (source: US Patent Office).

With an ID Stronghold product, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best shielded products on the market. Throw in a beautiful design, well made construction of soft smooth leather and a well thought out internal organization, this clutch is a winner in our eyes.

If there is one thing to complain though, it is that the ID window feels a bit too tight, making it difficult to take a card out from that slot.

 

What others have to say

Best wallet I’ve ever owned

By Darryl O.

 

I LOVE this wallet! It feels and looks very well constructed, soft leather. The red color is a beautiful cool toned red, pairs nicely with all of my bags.

 

There is plenty of space for everything I need, cash, change, all of my cards, a check book (makes for a snug fit but is does work). Plus, the card slots are plenty big for cards, a pet peeve of mine is when the slots are barely big enough to fit cards and getting them out can be nearly impossible, that doesn’t happen with this wallet as the slots are perfectly sized.

 

This brand is the best and most well know for their protection. If this wallet lasts me for several years like I think it will, I will definitely repurchase.

 

The interior is also leather for the most part

By Shopping Queen

 

I’m an admitted wallet “snob” but was going on a trip to London so started looking at the RFID wallets with little hopes of finding something that would look decent. Came upon this on Amazon, thought I’d give it a try and all I can say is what a pleasant surprise!

 

It’s made of soft, smooth leather (no pebble-ing), well made and organized very similar to my other wallets. The interior is also leather for the most part (I hate the wallets that have the cheap nylon lining for the card slots). There is some of that nylon lining but not noticeable when the wallet is opened.

 

The older reviews of the driver’s license slot being difficult to get the DL out has been solved by putting a oval “hole” in the middle of the plastic to help with sliding it out. I would highly recommend the wallet for both travel and everyday use and am even considering ordering another to have as a backup.

 

Well made, RFID protection 360 degrees

By  Schnauzerhaus

 

There is soft, supple leather, well-thought-out organization, and RFID protection in every nook and cranny of this wallet (not just in one or two card slots…be watchful of that in other products). It has a full length zipper compartment inside the wallet, and one on the exterior as well.

 

It looks like a normal high-quality women’s wallet, but so nice to know the RFID protection is included in the price. I can check off one more worry in my plans to go overseas next year. Prompt delivery was appreciated!

As this women’s leather checkbook wallet features a snap fastener on the front, all your valuables will remain safe and secure inside.

There’s really not much we can find to complain here.

 

What others have to say

Really love this wallet!

By Ihuezo

 

Worth every penny. It’s a great size; the product pictures do it justice. So many pockets and slots! In the photo you can (hopefully!) see that I can carry a pen, pack of gum, lip balm, mini Bic, my phone (inside or in pocket on back), passport, and all the needed cards, cash, etc.

 

While my iPhone 6 fits inside of the wallet (I have a slim case on it as pictured Tech21 Impactology Evo Mesh for iPhone 6 / 6s 4.7 Purple ), I usually just slip it into the pocket on the back (quicker easier access) since there is a zippered change pocket inside as well.

 

It’s big enough to hold the basic essentials but small enough that I can slip it into a coat/hoodie pocket if needed. The wrist strap has held up well and is so handy and adjustable – you can kind of move it around to the different d-rings and the zipper loop. I carried this on a trip around Asia this past summer and haven’t set it aside yet. It has become my EDC.

 

Great Wallet!

By Ashtyn

 

Perfect size, beautiful color, and holds all my travel necessities/money well. It’s the right size for Yen/Euros/etc. They fit well, even the Yen has a little wiggle room. It also is able to hold both my passports, cards, etc.

 

The color on it is this bright and beautiful aqua color, contrasted by the navy stripe. I’d say it’s pretty close to true color in the product pictures. There is room for a few cards, which is perfect as I don’t need a wallet that holds 20+ cards, and I’m sure that helps cut down on the bulk. It’s still a thick wallet, but not so round I feel awkward carrying it. It zips, so it keeps all of your things safely inside when you’re carrying it alone and don’t have to worry about anything falling out.

 

You can also adjust the strap so it’s a loop or more like a mini purse, or remove it entirely. It would also fit a Nexus 6P without a bulky case. I added a picture of it compared to the W250 as well.

 

I totally love this wallet

By Sewing by Linda

 

I totally love this wallet! After a lifetime of searching for the perfect one, this is it!

 

Lots of inside pockets that hold everything I need, plus an outside zipper to keep it all together. Also a nice handstrap that I can put over my arm at functions to keep my hands free. I also got the matching shoulderbag, which I also love.

At this price point (USD $18.99 – 19.99), this clutch purse may not be made of top quality leather but it still feels more than sturdy enough.

What others have to say

So beautiful!

By Fresh Mango

 

This is like a very expensive wallet that I have from Michael Kors! Leather looks the same, doesn’t get dirty at all. “Anti scratch and anti dirt”. It’s beautiful, not expensive and holds lots of stuff for traveling and every day life.

 

The color is more beautiful than on the pictures. Very happy with it!

 

Perfect RFID clutch travel wallet

By lulubelle

 

I’ve been looking for this for some thing: big enough to hold passports and checkbook, but not too big; RFID, zippered clutch with strap. Actually fits the credit cards I have. You wouldn’t think it would be so hard to find!

 

I have bought and discarded three before this one. Finally happy.

 

Excellent Product and Exceptional Customer Service 

By Melissa

 

Absolutely love the product. It has great storage space and the fabric is scratch resistant. I do A LOT of travelling and this has been excellent.

 

I initially had a minor issue with the product and the Customer Service team went above and beyond to have the problem rectified and I would highly recommend using this company in the future for all of my needs they truly care about their customers and their satisfaction.

4d. Best design: CallagHan Slim Clutch

If travelling in style is non-negotiable, then the CallagHan RFID blocking slim clutch (USD $14.99 – $24.99) is one that you will love.

 

>> More details on product site

 

The clutch is comfortable to use, packs great functionality and looks amazingly stylish and elegant.

However, one sticking point is that the bottom two card slots are affected by the buttons that clasps the two folds together (if you see the picture next).

This makes inserting cards into and taking cards out from these two slots difficult.

 

What others have to say

I couldn’t bear to use it because I was scared it would get dirty. I honestly wanted to just keep it safe … 

By Shanana

 

This wallet is absolutely gorgeous. I couldn’t bear to use it because I was scared it would get dirty. I honestly wanted to just keep it safe somewhere in my room. But I didn’t buy a new wallet to not use it.

 

I love how the wallet has a lot of room for cards because I got to a lot of dessert shops and they give those stamp cards, which I have a lot of. It also has two pockets where you can out your money. So I can put my 20s and 10s in one pocket, and my 5s and 1s in another.

 

Best part? It has two pockets where you can put your picture or ID. You can put a picture of your beloved or your children if you have. This wallet isn’t too thick, which I really like. I over stuff my bag so fitting a thick wallet inside will take a lot of reorganizing.

 

The quality is really good as well. I love the touch of this wallet. And I especially love the colors they come in. Just picking out a color gave me stress, because I wanted it all. The simple elegance of this wallet made me want to buy it.

6. RFID Blocks

If you prefer to use your existing wallet on your trip but does not have RFID protection, you can combine it with a RFID case or RFID sleeve to protect your cards.

 

6a. RFID case: Shell-D RFID Blocking Credit Card Protector

If you prefer to just use a RFID case to hold all your bank cards, you will not go wrong with the Shell-D RFID Blocking Credit Card Protector (USD $8.99).

 

>> More details on product site

 

This is a low cost, fuss free way of getting RFID protection and it shows as it is one of the best-selling RFID blocking card protector on Amazon.

We love the colors, its sleek profile, as well as the rounded nature of the casing which makes it easy and comfortable to use.

However, there have been some complaints regarding the durability of the plastic latch as well as the plastic interior.

Regardless, we still recommend using a RFID blocking money belt / hidden pouch and / or RFID blocking wallet, as separating cards from cash feels like too much of a hassle for us as it is another item to take care of).

 

What others have to say

Love this wallet

By Claire M.

 

I purchased this little wallet to use while traveling because I read so much about identity theft from the information stored on credit cards. I loved it so much that I have continued to use it after I returned from my trip.

 

I like that my credit card information is protected whether I am at a local store or on the road. It holds all my credit and identification cards and is easy to find in my purse. When I open it, it fans the cards out and it is easy to retrieve the card I need. Great product.

 

Great size, and hold up to 15 cards. Perfect if you travel a lot

By Rochelle – honest reviews

 

I needed something thin that holds a ton of credit cards, insurance cards, discount cards, etc. I am very happy with this purchase. Not only is it affordable, but the size of a deck of cards. Currently I have 15 cards inside and I love how it snaps open and closed. When open the cards fan out so it is easy to find the one you are looking for.

 

I travel a ton for work, so this is perfect for me and when I switch purchase or laptop bags, I can just slip it in without having to re-organize everything. LOVE THE PINK. I get a ton of compliments when I take it out and ask “where did you get that?” Amazon! ha ha

 

This product has been great

By BlueEcho

 

Being a frequent traveler and with all the issues with identity theft I was seeking something that was more compact than a normal purse and that would be sure that all my personal data was safe.

 

This product has been great, I can fit all my cards needed in here as well as ID that I might need during travel. Have recently even used it while traveling around Las Vegas it was compact enough to fit in a pocket and did not make for a quick steal. Knowing that it is RFID blocking is also an extra piece of mind.

6b. RFID sleeves: Alphine Rivers 18 RFID Blocking Sleeves

If you prefer using RFID sleeves instead of a case, you will not go wrong with the Alphine Rivers 18 RFID Blocking Sleeves (USD $9.99).

 

>> More details on product site

 

Yet another top quality, very affordable product, as evidenced by its best selling status on Amazon.

This is an essential item to bring along for your trip if you do not wish to get a separate RFID blocking money belt / hidden pouch or wallet.

But as mentioned, we still recommend using a RFID blocking money belt / hidden pouch and / or RFID blocking wallet, as having to insert every card into a sleeve feels like too much of a hassle for us.

 

What others have to say

Easy to use in my favorite wallet

By Mumsers

 

Traveled with an RFID wallet that made removing cards and license stiff and difficult; I missed my Coach wallet I’ve used for 5+ years because of its efficient design. Finally, these sleeves let me have RFID protection AND my favorite wallet.

 

The envelopes do fit in my slots, which are wider than my cards to begin with. Even with the sleeves on, RFID chipped cards are easy to remove both from the slot and the protective sleeves. Yes, it will mean an extra step at point of sale, but worth it to keep my favorite wallet and have data security.

 

The best RFID sleeves.

By K nurse

 

These are perfect RFID sleeves. I have some thin sleeves and I constantly worried if they actually worked. These are heavier and have much better construction at the corners. This package gives me enough to protect all my cards and my Passport.

 

Thankful I saw these and got them ordered in time for a flight when you definitely need all the protection possible. If you are traveling or have credit cards you need up graded RFID sleeves; they are the best I’ve seen.

 

Passport sleeve fit in my passport carrier. Credit card sleeves fit my very small wallet.

By ADV fanatic

 

Hard to beat. A great selection and easy to use. I travel internationally often. It’s a lot easier to protect your info from the bad guys than to correct stolen info later. For the investment, what’s not to like?

 

Handed them out to my wife and son. Both travel for business. I sent another set to a coworker and his family who were about to leave for Europe. They loved them. Arrived quickly, which is always a nice touch.
