When it comes to a premium wallet with RFID-blocking technology, one name rises above the rest: Vaultskin.
Vaultskin’s offerings make for a practical gift for any modern man (and ladies, too). The sophisticated pocketbooks keep everything safe and sound with RFID-blocking materials that shield scanners who want to profit from the personal information contained within.
Made with first-class Italian leather and British design, the wallet brings sophistication, class, privacy, and functionality to any lifestyle. To top it all off, a wide range of colors presents the opportunity to stylize as one sees fit.
Many come to Vaultskin for the Manhattan Wallet–an RFID-blocking cardholder that ensures the user’s information remains protected while out and about.
The trendy piece isn’t the only item in their arsenal, however. There are plenty of reasons to add shopping Vaultskin’s collection to your weekly to-do list.
Is RFID-Blocking Technology Worth It?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. Used since the 1970s, the technology provides law enforcement personnel and other high-security positions to track objects or people using a digital ‘tag.’ Some tags can be ready from up to thirty feet (10 meters) away.
Back in the day, a lot of men walked around with overstuffed pocketbooks that were ready to burst out of whatever pocket they resided. The bulk makes things heavy, like a weight that has to be pulled around from place to place.
An eye toward minimalism has changed that in recent years. Many lightweight options are now on the menu; in fact, a svelt wallet for the pocket may be just what the doctor ordered.
These days, smartphone technology makes it possible for us to keep it down to the essentials: credit card, debit card, ID, and maybe a few banknotes. A thin and compact bifold isn’t enough, though. RFID-blocking technology is required to keep unauthorized ID scanners at bay.
Skimmers take data stored on contactless credit cards using the same technology the US government, hospitals, and retailers use while protecting the general public. An RFID-blocking wallet protects what these criminals have in store (mostly identity theft).
Unfortunately, some manufacturers have yet to receive the memo that states RFID-blocking gear can look stylish, too. That’s where Vaultskin gets it right. We think the fine Italian leather has something to do with it.
Form Meets Function in Vaultskin
Vaultskin is a fashion-forward brand that goes above and beyond just looks. Its premium leather wallets and iPhone accessories are produced with careful thought in terms of technology, design, and features. The RFID protection offered by the brand is simply unparalleled.
Each piece reflects not only the brilliance of fine engineering but also beauty and elegance.
This season, three pieces catch our eye:
The Notting Hill Wallet (With Zipper)
The Notting Hill Wallet keeps ID cards, debit cards, and credit cards safe from skimmers and scanners with RFID-blocking capabilities. Beyond that, it helps prevent sticky fingers from lifting something from the wallet (or from something falling out) with durable zipper closure.
The Belgravia Zipper Wallet (for Ladies)
The Belgravia Zipper Wallet suits the ladies in the house. Although wallets these days are moving toward the direction of unisex items, some will prefer more color options in a smaller style as offered by this line.
The Kensington Passport Holder
Traveling types have heard plenty of horror stories about missing passports and stolen identities. The act itself often occurs in very crowded and busy places like airports, trains, or bus depots. RIFD-blocking passport holders keep people from getting the info (and look nice, too!).
With all of its offerings, Vaultskin aims to achieve excellence with usability and style. By crafting a great-looking product, one that is easy to use and effective in blocking RFID technology, the brand aims to make fashion practical.
Keep Everything Where it Belongs With the Notting Hill Slip Zip Wallet (With RFID protection)
British sensibility lends itself to a premium, designer style in the Notting Hill Slip Zip Wallet. The compact wallet gracefully ticks many boxes with genuine Italian leather, high-quality metal finishes, a minimalist form, and RFID-blocking tech.
The high-quality zipper ensures that nothing slips out as long as everything is closed up the way it should be. The high-quality YKK zipper is featured on all of Vaultskin’s products (that zip).
Additional bonus points are awarded for the brand’s signature retractable pull-strap (for quick access to the wallet) and the wallet’s front outside pocket. Of course, the RFID blocking technology in place is what seals the deal for many considering the Notting Hill Wallet.
The wallet was constructed to be lightweight. The result is luxurious, appearing as premium as anything else on the market. Even better, it’s quite durable and spacious, great for travel. Available in black, green, brown, and cognac, the options are sure to impress.
Size-wise, it measures 4.20″ H x 3.10″ W x 0.60″ D.
The wallet has four pockets on the outside with space for six cards. Inside, there’s room for six additional cards. This isn’t exactly the best wallet for those who like to walk around with a huge wad of cash in their pocket: the manufacturer recommends no more than ten bills at a time.
For everybody else, the slim wallet makes the perfect gift. A rather sophisticated gift box envelopes the piece, so gift-givers can rest assured that their token of the season will be a hit.
The Ladies’ Belgravia by Vaultskin Offers Italian Leather and RFID-Blocking Technology
When it comes to Vaultskin’s Belgravia Wallet, what draws the eye to it is most often its craftsmanship and sleek Italian leather construction.
From there, it is the strong YKK zipper closure and RFID-blocking lining that seal the deal. Something is satisfying about feeling protected.
The hand-crafted purse for ladies is a minimalist piece at 3.15″ H x 4.13″ W x 0.87″ D. The small design accommodates plenty of bank and ID cards all the same. Current color selections include red, black, champagne, brown, violet, yellow, blue, and turquoise
A Smart Strap expands rapidly to pull out cards hidden in one of three exterior pockets.
The Kensignton Passport Holder Suits Travelers Well
Many people learn about RFID-blocking technology when researching topics like “best wallets for traveling abroad” or “how to protect my passport information while at the airport.” The best answer that surfaces usually sounds the same: invest in RFID-blocking gear for less worry!
The Kensington Passport Case is slim and elegant. The design keeps everything one needs for traveling in a single minimalist wallet for less fuss. The airport check-in kiosk and security lanes can be busy enough – having everything protected in one place is a major travel hack.
The piece is practical in every sense. A long, external pocket for papers (boarding passes, banknotes, etc.) is readily available alongside two stealth slots where one can stash their favorite two bank cards, ID cards, or travel passes. It’s small enough to keep in a bag, too.
One can choose their favorite color: black, brown, red blue, and turquoise are great choices. Matte black and matte brown round out the offerings.
Beyond the RFID-blocking technology, a luxurious appearance encapsulates the airs so few can capture at the airport – a globetrotter, a traveler, a digital nomad in their element.
RFID Is Here To Stay: Get Gear That Can Keep Up
RFID isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Rather than fight, protect yourself and the people about whom you care most. As cases of stolen identity are becoming more common, taking a few quick steps to protect our information is the least we can do to stay ahead in modern times.
If not for ourselves, we should consider giving our friends, family, and other loved ones wallets, passport holders, and other gear that offer RFID-blocking capabilities. Making a great present, the wallet communicates the desire to keep those who we care about safe from danger.
Beyond that, the RFID-blocking wallets by Vaultskin are stunning in their own right. In an array of minimalist styles and colors, each wallet is somebody’s “missing piece” waiting to find a new home.
