RFID Travel Wallet
Almost but not quite perfect
I bought this in red for my mother-in-law. We got her a smart phone, and wanted to get her a wallet that would hold her 'stuff' as well as her new phone. I plan on getting myself one soon. The color was lush and vibrant. The leather super soft and caress-able. There is a zippered pouch inside, perfect for change. A large compartment for 'stuff' that holds a Galaxy s4 sized phone nicely. There are 2 additional extremely thin folds which can be used to hold bills and credit cards/driver license. Suggested improvements are: a wrist strap when not using it with a purse. Slots to hold credit cards. Slightly wider to accommodate cash easier. And a closing mechanism that is not magnets. I am concerned, that over time, the very strong magnets will damage the magnet strips on drivers license and credit cards.

What a beautiful and comforting addition to my purse. I bought it because I actually saw a card skimmer in action in the mall. Now I feel safer. My sister now has one as well.

I purchased this wallet, along with the passcase to go inside, for an overseas vacation. The leather is soft, it's fairly roomy, yet is small enough to fit easily inside an under-seat carry-on bag. Having several pockets is always helpful. I bought it in red -- very attractive. And of course, the RFID protection was a significant feature.
My only caveats are these: it's a tiny bit too short for US currency to fit smoothly in a pocket (let alone larger foreign bills); and it doesn't have a strap! Since it's large enough to hold phone, cards, lipstick and a couple of other items, I used it as a de facto purse throughout the trip, but was frustrated by having to either hold it in my hand or try to fit it in a jacket pocket (difficult).
Overall, I am quite satisfied with the purchase, but a couple of tweaks would make this an ideal small bag for almost any occasion.
