The Slim Shield Wallet is a wallet that's about as thick as a cassette tape and has the same length and width as a standard credit card. This wallet has been designed to hold up to 12 cards, such as credit cards, debit cards, and identification cards. It also has a handy steel clip on the outside that you'll be able to use to carry cash that won't fit inside. Each one is made from carbon fiber and aluminum plates that will block RFID signals.
The cost of Slim Shield Wallet is $29.99 plus $9.95 shipping, for a total price of $39.94.

After you obtain a Slim Shield Wallet, you'll need to add up to 12 cards to the expandable elastic band located on the inside of the wallet. This band will expand and contract so you'll be able to look at all your cards at once when you feel like it (and add more, if there's space). You don't need to completely fill up the elastic band, but the option's there if you regularly need to carry 12 different cards. Once you've filled it up, allow it to contract back into the wallet.
You can add cash to this wallet's inner elastic band, too, but if you've completely filled that with cards, you can also add cash to the clip on the outside of the wallet. Stick to bills instead of coins if you do so, though, as coins may fall out of the clip and end up getting lost.
Once your wallet is full, it's compact enough that you'll be able to carry it in virtually any pocket or handbag. As you carry it, the RFID-blocking aluminum plates that are part of its shell will stop people from stealing identifying information from your credit cards or ID cards.
Each Slim Shield Wallet has the same length and width as that of a standard credit card. Although each one is a bit thicker than one of those cards, each is only about half as thick as a standard leather or plastic wallet. The exact dimensions of each of these wallets are 86 millimeters (length), 54 millimeters (width), and six millimeters (depth). As a result, one of them won't take up a great deal of space in a purse or backpack and will even fit in a fairly small pocket.
Carbon fiber and aluminum are durable materials, but they're also lightweight in comparison to other materials with the same level of hardness. Therefore, you won't feel as if you're being forced to carry a dumbbell or a rock along with you as you carry one of these wallets. Due to their lightweight nature, it's unlikely that any one of them will ever cause one of your pockets to rip, either.
This wallet is dark gray, which makes it one that people of various ages and genders will feel comfortable carrying, and it'll appear suitable whether you're using it in a professional or casual setting. Once you start using it, you won't need to change the way that you're carrying your money as you move between work and social activities.
If you're not familiar with the idea of radio-frequency identification (or RFID), it's a process by which identity thieves can access your personal information via radio waves. These waves will pick up digital information from credit cards and various forms of personal identification, and then criminals will use that to potentially steal your identity. Fortunately, the Slim Shield Wallet will block these radio waves altogether, so the criminals won't get this type of information from your cards.
With another type of wallet, you might have to dump all your important cards out onto a flat surface in order to grab the one you need. However, with this one, you'll simply need to pull out the expandable elastic and look at them all in just one glance. That'll enable you to quickly identify the one you need to use and then move on with other tasks.
Materials like leather and plastic that are commonly used to make wallets can often rip, especially if a particular wallet gets old, but the Slim Shield Wallet's materials won't rip. Even if you drop this wallet on the ground, it's unlikely that it'll pick up anything more than a scratch (if that!). That means you won't need to worry about important coins or bills falling through holes or tears and being picked up by someone else.
More and more people are carrying just bills and credit or debit cards these days, but of course, there are some people who still carry coins. These people may be dissatisfied with the Slim Shield Wallet since the outer clip won't hold coins, and if the inner pocket is already filled with 12 cards, coins won't fit in there.
Many people like to keep their smartphone very close to their wallet, but there's no way to securely attach a smartphone to this type of wallet. If you were to attempt to stick it under the cash clip, the space between the clip and the wallet would likely be too narrow to accommodate its thickness. To remedy this issue without adding to the Slim Shield Wallet's size, it would be helpful if a smartphone clip could be added to the opposite side. This clip would have to be backed by only aluminum to avoid potential magnetic attraction with the phone.
Just as the cash clip on one of these wallets probably won't hold a smartphone effectively, it can't hold a wad of cash that's too big, either. If it's difficult to jam any more bills under your cash clip, you've probably added too many and there's a risk that the clip could break off. You should also avoid putting credit or ID cards under the cash clip, if you run out of space inside the wallet, as they won't be protected by RFID-blocking technology while they're on the outside.
You might choose to dump all the items out of your traditional plastic or leather wallet and then run the wallet through your washing machine, but you shouldn't put this particular wallet in a machine. Instead, if it happens to get dirty, wipe off its outer shell with just water.
If you normally buy wallets made from plastic that are on the cheaper side, you might end up replacing your wallet every couple of years. Once you've got a Slim Shield Wallet, however, it's outer materials are so sturdy that one of these may last you a decade without needing to be replaced.
