20 Best RFID Blocking Wallets For Men

20 Best RFID-Blocking Wallets

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, WALLETS By

In this day and age, with digital identity theft a constant threat, you can’t be too careful with the cards that populate your wallet.  Believe it or not, electronic pickpockets in close enough proximity can use scanning devices to steal the account information stored on the chip in credit, debit, and other cards in your wallet – a crime known as RFID (or radio-frequency identification) skimming.
 
While RFID technology has in many ways improved security for credit transactions, it has also opened the door to significant risk.  On the one hand, it’s much easy to copy data from magnetic stripes than to steal it from RFID chips at the point of sale.  However, if a criminal with the right skimming device gets close enough to your chipped cards, the chips could be activated in order to steal the confidential data they contain.
 
The good news is, you don’t have to live in constant fear of this outcome.  Plenty of companies now offer RFID blocking wallets that create a virtual shield for your chipped cards, effectively stopping skimming devices from finding and accessing the data stored in RFID chips.  Here are the 20 best RFID blocking wallets — all reliable and attractive — that you might want to consider adding to your everyday carry collection.

Ridge Wallet

Ridge Wallet

Slim, minimalist wallets are a must for anyone who prefers less bulk in the pocket, but a strong, durable wallet that also offers RFID protection takes the concept to the next level.  The Ridge wallet in anodized aluminum is everything you could want and then some.  Thin layers of aluminum are imbued with RFID blocking technology, the card pocket expands to hold 1-12 cards, and a money clip on the side offers easy access to cash.  Backed by a lifetime warranty. – Shop Now

Ultra-thin and wear resistant, this RFID protected wallet featuring heat-resistant steel plates with a durable melonite finish is perfect for the minimalist seeking a tough-as-nails compartment for 1-7 cards and 1-5 bills.  The wallet essentially consists of two slender plates (with peekaboo cutouts to see which card or ID is facing out) held together by a MIL-SPEC nylon webbing band.  An integrated bottle opener is a fun bonus, and as with other Trayvax products, this made-in-the-states wallet comes with a 65-year heirloom warranty. – Shop Now

Fantom Wallet

This space-age wallet offers modern appeal thanks to sharp lines, slender styling, and aluminum construction designed to block RFID signals.  There are also several options to customize not only the color of your wallet (as well as add anodized finish in blue, black, or gold), but also the number of cards it can hold in the central compartment (4-7, 6-10, or 8-13).  You can even decide whether or not you want a built-in coin compartment.  A grade 5 titanium money clip completes the package. – Shop Now

Travelambo RFID Front Pocket Wallet

Utilitarian appeal punctuates the minimal, stainless steel framework of this compact wallet, which purports to hold 1-14 cards and 1-8 bills and offers RFID protection and an ID window, to boot.  A twist on the classic bifold, the metal frame hinges open to reveal a money clip on one side and an adjustable card strap on the other, along with an integrated storage pocket for keys or coins.  Trayvax has also thrown in a MIL-SPEC paracord, not to mention a 65-year heirloom warranty. – Shop Now

Radix One RFID-Blocking Minimalist Wallet

Radix One Black Steel Minimalist Wallet

There’s not much to this pared down wallet, which features two strips of heavy gauge stainless steel held together by a flexible silicone band.  Openings on either side make it easy to slide out the 4-10 cards this wallet can hold, and it’s easy to pop a few bills under the band on the outside.  Even so, you’ll still get the RFID blocking power you need to ensure your personal information remains private.  You’ll also enjoy an incredibly slim silhouette. – Shop Now

Ekster Senate Card Holder

Ekster Senate Card Holder

This card case is oddly elegant, and not just because of the scripty “E” embossed on every surface.  Ekster’s ultra-slim wallet is made from sturdy, yet supple, environmentally-friendly leather and offers storage capacity for up to seven cards in the central slip, as well as cash and even coins.  It also has push-button functionality to eject cards for easy access.  A solar-powered tracker card connects to your phone via Bluetooth, which means you can always find your wallet, provided you can find your phone. – Shop Now

Trayvax Summit Minimalist Wallet

Trayvax Summit Minimalist Wallet

Another submission from Trayvax (with its storied 65-year heirloom warranty), this uber-minimalist wallet includes little more than a resilient, cold-rolled steel plate with durable melonite finish, an integrated money clip, and a strap in MIL-SPEC nylon webbing to secure 1-8 cards and 1-5 bills.  How does it protect against RFID skimming?  We don’t know, but they hid the tech in there somewhere.  In the meantime, you’ll get the perfect EDC wallet for front or back pocket use and a product that you can proudly say is made in the USA. – Shop Now

Humn Mini Wallet

Two thin, aircraft grade aluminum plates make up this barely-there wallet, which is held together with a slender, flexible, elastic strap.  It comes in a bunch of colors, from super cool matte black, silver metal, and royal blue to more whimsical shades of powder blue, neon pink, and eye-searing yellow reminiscent of a certain submarine.  How many cards can you squeeze in?  Give it a try and see.  You can also store cash under the band, but for RFID blocking, cards must go between the plates. – Shop Now

Secrid Cardprotector

On first glance you might mistake this rectangular card case for an iPhone backup battery, but for the empty void in the center that is perfectly suited to holding 4-6 cards.  The boxy design in lightweight aluminum holds a little something extra, though.  Not only does it offer RFID protection, but it features a spring-loaded push mechanism to pop your cards out the top so you don’t have to dump the whole kit-and-caboodle on the counter to find your favorite card. – Shop Now
