How RFID Blocking Works
By creating a shield that blocks the ability to power and communicate with the RFID chip, our products protect personal information stored on these items. Unfortunately, industry-standard security measures implemented for user protection are easily by-passed with modification, so complete protection requires additional security.


With all the credit card hacking and scams lately, I wanted to get something to help protect my cards while I am out, and save me from any mishaps. I didn't use the passport piece in this set because I don't travel internationally, so my review is solely based on the credit card holders.

At first when I saw these, I thought for sure it was a rip off. They seem like flimsy paper pouches. But before coming on here and writing that, I wanted to take apart one of the sleeves and really see what it was make of. The outside of the sleeve is just like paper, nothing special. I sacrificed one sleeve and tore it apart. In between the paper layers there is a foil layer, which I imagine is the part that is the RFID blocker. The sleeve itself is pretty sturdy, and holds up fairly well.

My cards fit securely in the sleeves nicely, and they easily go right back into my wallet. It does make it a bit more time consuming when getting my cards out, but in the long run its well worth it. Personally I think something like these would be great to have if you are traveling and want that added protection. For daily use, you may want something a bit more sturdy. It's more of a personal preference I guess. Overall this is a pretty good product!
