A wallet is an easy and inexpensive way to make your life more fashionable and functionable. It’s something that we use every day, but don’t give much thought to when buying. Wallets are the holder for some of our most important and private belongings. Replacing ID, credit cards and cash can be a painful, expensive and long process, so why we would keep these items in something that isn’t safe, isn’t useful, and doesn’t look nice?

An elastic band or money clip may be a quick and easy solution to keeping your cards and cash in one place, but it doesn’t provide much safety. It’s important to have a wallet that features RFID blocking technology. RFID technology uses electrical chips that are able to transmit the information from your cards wirelessly through your pocket, allowing thieves to steal your credit card numbers, identity, or both. RFID blocking wallets are designed to protect your cards, with the three options we found below including an ID window that can be used for cards that require the ability to pass through RFID blocking, including hotel cards or access cards that are often used to gain entrance to gyms, apartment buildings or workplaces.

Not only will these wallets keep your cards safe from RFID, they’ll also keep them physically safe, with wallets adding an extra layer of protecting against breakage or accidentally falling out of your pocket.

When it comes to choosing a wallet, finding one that fits your needs it key to making it a product that will suit your everyday needs. Are you someone who carries multiple cards at once? Then you’ll want a traditional fold wallet. Are you a minimalist or want a separate wallet to use only when traveling? A slim wallet is best for you.

Whether you’re showing your ID at work, paying for a meal on a date, or buying groceries at your local store, your wallet is seen by many people. So, make sure it looks good. Here are three great options that will keep you safe and make your money look cool.


1. HIMI Genuine Leather Wallet

Made from precious genuine vegetable tanned cowhide leather, which is chemical free and environmentally friendly, the HIMI Genuine Leather Wallet packs a ton of features at an affordable price. Available in 26 colors and designed with 10 card slots, two ID windows, and a large main area for cash and receipts, the HIMI also boasts RFID Blocking Security to ensure your cards won’t be damaged. We also like that the wallet comes in a gift box, perfect for special occasions like Father’s Day or birthdays. Because the wallet is made of vegetable tanned leather, it will become softer and more comfortable the more you use it. Measuring 4.5 inches x 3.5 inches x 0.4 inches, it’s the largest wallet on our list and holds the most. Customers find that the wallet is long lasting and can fit multiple cards in each slot but do note that it can feel bulky in their pocket.

2. Buffway Slim Minimalist Front Pocket RFID Blocking Leather Wallet

Slim and lightweight and perfect for traveling or for anyone who doesn’t carry many cards, the Buffway Minimalist RFID Blocking Wallet has four slots for credit cards, one clear ID window, two side-slip pockets designed for quick access cards like commuter memberships, and a middle section to hold cash and paper. Available in 27 colors and made from genuine leather, the Buffway is the lightest wallet on our list, weighing only 1.05 oz and measuring 3 1/8 inches x 4 7/16 inches, making it just slightly thinner than the Travelambo. The wallet comes with RFID blocking technology, except for on the ID window, which can be used for hotel keys and access cards. One con noted by customers is that the wallet is too short to accommodate a flat bill, forcing users to fold their cash, which adds bulk to the wallet.

3. Travelambo Front Pocket Minimalist Leather Slim Wallet

Backed by a one-year warranty, the Travelambo is the most economical option on our list and still boasts many of the features found in the first two options. Available in 16 colors and with the option of Crosshatch leather, Napa leather and Vegetable Tanned leather, the wallet has a main compartment for cash and six card slots that boasts RFID protection, as well as an ID window that is not RFID protected. Like the HIMI, the Travelambo arrives in a gift box. And like the Buffway, the Travelambo is sleek, measuring 4.7 inches x 3.7 inches x 0.7 inches, but heavier than the Buffway, weighing 2.4 ounces. One con noted by customers is that it can be difficult to remove a card from the ID window.
