Best RFID Wallet – Viosi Leather Magnetic Front Pocket Money Clip Wallet

Last update was on: January 16, 2019 12:26 am

You might be wondering what the heck “RFID” stands for and the answer is “Radio-Frequency IDentification.” This acronym refers to small electronic devices that consist of a tiny chip and an antenna. The chip is usually able to carry around 2,000 bytes of data or less.

So why should you care? – RFID technology has been around for ages, but along with the convenience comes a risk of having your information being stolen by a new kind of electronic pick-pocketing commonly referred to as “RFID skimming.”

This means that credit cards, driver’s licenses, and passports need to be protected. These items are usually kept in wallets so it makes sense to keep them safe and sound with an RFID wallet or money clip.

In recent years, hackers have shown how they can use handheld RFID readers to grab private information such as the name & home country listed in your passport, and more worryingly complete credit card numbers.

One of the best ways to combat this potential risk is to grab yourself an RFID-blocking wallet like the Viosi RFID Leather Magnetic Money Clip Wallet. This attractive and very reasonably priced wallet is made from top-grade cow-hide and is the only wallet which is certified by TÜV (Germany) for RFID blocking on all known frequencies.

Best Bifold Wallet – Swanky Badger Personalized Leather Wallet

A dude’s wallet should be functional and look stylish, too! Many fellows regard their wallet as an extension of their fashion style and wouldn’t be seen dead whipping out a ratty, bursting-at-the-seams monster that’s being held together by a wing and a prayer!

Bifold and trifold wallets are the most common styles for men as they are perfect for keeping your essentials without bursting at the seams. If you didn’t know, a bifold wallet is rectangular in shape and folds in half. They usually feature one long open pocket for currency and a few smaller slots which can be placed vertically or horizontally.

Our featured bifold wallet is made by Swanky Badger and is constructed from split cow’s leather. We love this wallet because of the free laser engraving (you get up to 3 initials on the outside and 160 characters on the inside of the wallet.)

The extremely durable Swanky Badger Bifold Wallet includes a clear ID sleeve, 8 credit card slots, a zipped coin pouch, two pockets for bills, and a zipped bill sleeve.

Best Trifold Wallet – ID Stronghold RFID Leather Wallet

Last update was on: January 16, 2019 12:26 am

Trifold wallets are also rectangular but feature two flaps that fold towards the center, each section making up one third the wallet’s length. Similar to a bifold wallet, a trifold usually has one long open pocket for cash and some smaller sections for credit cards, ID cards, receipts etc.

Trifold wallets are usually bulkier and heavier than bifolds as they have a larger cash and card-carrying capacity and are folded twice.

The coolest Trifold wallet for guys is the ID Stronghold RFID Trifold Leather Wallet has actually earned its way onto the GSA Approved Products List and this has meant that it remains one of the top choices for U.S. government employees (due to its totally secure RFID blocking capability.)

This super-safe wallet is made from soft genuine leather which has a really nice texture (and smell). It is perfectly designed so that there is little chance of cards slipping out while still remaining totally accessible during day to day use.

Best Carbon Fiber Wallet – Sharkmond Minimalist Carbon Fiber Wallet

Last update was on: January 16, 2019 12:26 am

First the science; carbon fiber is a polymer and is sometimes referred to as graphite fiber. It is an incredibly strong material that has become very popular due to being so lightweight.

Carbon fiber is about five times stronger than steel so makes an ideal material for everything from wallets to racing bicycles. It was first invented back in 1879 by Thomas Edison. By 1958 high-performance carbon fiber was developed near Cleveland. Jump forward to 1963 and by utilizing a new manufacturing process (developed in a British research center), carbon fiber’s strength potential was fully realized.

The Sharkmond Minimalist Carbon Fiber Card Holder is a multi-functional wallet made from a combination of premium aluminum and the best quality carbon-fiber available. Each wallet is exquisitely crafted and has a very stylish appearance.

This wallet is designed to carry up to 12 credit cards and enough cash for even the wildest nights on the town. This funky wallet is equipped with RFID blocking tech as it is made from RFID resistant aluminum and carbon.

Best Aluminum Wallet – LOOKISS Aluminum Wallet

Last update was on: January 16, 2019 12:26 am

Aluminum is the most abundant element on Earth. No other metal is as versatile as aluminum or as widely used. It’s lightweight, strong, corrosion-resistant, durable, malleable, conductive, and odorless.

In theory, aluminum is also 100% recyclable and does not suffer any loss of its natural properties. Aluminum is used in transportation, construction, electrical, and in consumer goods such as trendy wallets.

Our favorite aluminum wallet is the LOOKISS Minimalist Slim Wallet Elastic Money Clip. Yet again, we have chosen a wallet with RFID blocking protection so that you can keep your private information/credit card details away from cyber-thieves (this particular model is US Government approved under FIPS 201.)

It’s made from aviation grade aluminum and 304 stainless steel, both of which provide extreme durability and a long service life. This stylish wallet features anti-slip silicone spots which keep your money securely in place.

The Lookiss is much thinner (and lighter) than most traditional wallets while still being able to comfortably hold up to 12 cards. It weighs just 2 oz, measures 3.35″ x 2.13″ x 0.24 and comes with a hassle-free money back guarantee in case you aren’t totally happy with it.

Best Money clip Wallet – Travando “Rio” Money Clip Wallet

Last update was on: January 16, 2019 12:26 am

For money-clip virgins, they are a really convenient way to manage your day to day cash. Money clips are really for minimalists, so if you like to carry a bunch of crap around on your person, you’d better you stick to a conventional style wallet.

Most men carry their money-clip in their pants or coat pocket. They come in really handy when you need to grab some cash quickly such as in gas stations or Drive-Thrus at your local fast food outlet.

The best money clip wallet we have come across is the TRAVANDO “RIO”. This functional money clip is fitted with 7 card pockets; one is an easy-access front pocket and the other six are inner pockets.
This baby is just the job for carrying credit cards, business cards etc and allows super-easy access by allowing you to push the cards out with a simple finger action.

Here we go again…RFID…blah, blah, blah…..!

This sleek and fashionable money clip was designed in Germany and is crafted using only the best materials. The dimensions are 4.5″ x 2.8″ x .6″ so it can fit into most chaps’ pockets without any vulgar “bulging!”

Best Chain Wallet – Levi’s Trifold Chain Wallet

Last update was on: January 16, 2019 12:26 am

According to Wikipedia, wallet chains were first worn by motorcyclists back in the day so that they wouldn’t lose their wallets when riding around. We’re not sure why chain wallets have lost their chic of late but who the hell cares, hey?
