KEEP YOUR STUFF SAFE
Nowadays, someone doesn’t have to steal your wallet to get at what’s inside of it… We're living in a time all our data is encrypted, everyday life now hinging on the invisible. As technological advances race ahead, the regulations and security available to protect all of our data still struggle to keep up. Most people aren’t even aware of all the complex ways in which their data can be stolen, and when it is stolen, it often goes undetected. One of the main culprits here is RFID skimming. Remember when you got your new debit card and it had a little chip in it? Maybe a small icon that looks like a Wi-Fi symbol on its side? That's RFID, and it's both your friend and your enemy.
SO WHAT IS RFID?
RFID technology, or ‘radio frequency identification’ is a new method of data tracking. It may surprise you to know you've got it on you right now. It’s what allows you to pay for things by holding your card near a card reader or ATM, often known as contactless payments. Almost every single new card produced has one. The chip holds all your card's data, using radio waves to send information and complete transactions. Cards are obviously a step-up, security-wise, from the days of burying gold in your yard and stuffing bills in your mattress. But no matter how protected it is, wherever there’s money to be spent, there’s money to be stolen. Credit card fraud has been around almost as long as credit cards; in 2017 alone, it accounted for losses of over 16 billion dollars in the USA.
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR
One of the most popular electronic pickpocket tactics is stealing data stored in your credit or debit cards' RFID chips. Once stolen, this data can be used to purchase things online, access bank accounts and even produce a clone of your card. The idea of your bank data being hacked is unsettling, but the ease with which it can be done is what makes it really scary. Since this technology works remotely using radio waves, RFID skimming can happen in a second without your wallet or cards ever being touched, even if you have the most secure wallet. All it takes is for a small handheld device, or even a smartphone with the necessary adjustments to be held close to your card for a couple seconds and bam, your card data is stolen. Common places for this to happen can include; public transportation, nightlife, crowded malls, tourist attractions and airports.
HOW TO STAY SAFE
You could stop bringing your cards with you in crowded public places, you could choose to only use cash from now on, or you could invest in a secure wallet. Radio waves can’t travel through every material, making specific kinds of metal act like a force field around your cards, not allowing the radio waves to come in or out. The metal that works best for producing an impenetrable faraday cage hidden inside a travel security wallet is good old basic aluminium. We aim for the best travel wallet security by using top grade aluminium to build the space where your cards fit in, so they are always protected. Having the best secure wallet is important, but not without it actually looking good. That’s why in our wallets, we designed the aluminium of the cardholder to be as thin as possible while still retaining its strength and ability to block RFID scans. That way, we can fit the safe wallet case inside of a beautiful top-grain leather exterior.

As promised its amazing can store all i need for a night out or business and pleasure thank you
This wallet is so nice, the feel, the smell from this wallet damn this is premium. Had this wallet for bout 3 days now not used on how the form factor is but gotta get use to it and it’s a stealthy slim wallet. I recommend this to any one that wants a pretty neat leather minimalistic wallet . Ekster earns another 5 🌟
This is my first product from here and it’s amazing, I’m about to purchase another one, I’ve had many compliments on the wallet, it’s professional, and it goes with your everyday use
Got this wallet in the bronze color. Leather feels very high quality and the color’s my favorite so far. Had an old Ekster so it’s nice to add a limited edition to my collection too.
Best Wallet I ever purchased. Most convenient for the people who carry low amounts of cash and use credit cards for their daily purchases
All I expected. A slim wallet which is easy to carry in your pocket. No more fumbling at the shops to find the right card as the spring action allows easy access. Highly recommend.
Aesthetically feels good in my hand, not bulky or clumsy at all
Conveniently streamlined. Reminiscent of 007 gadgetry.
Touch of modern is spot on with this one.
I bought this a wallet with tracker card for a Christmas present for someone special. After using the wallet for a few weeks, I decided that I deserved the same spoilong myself. I like the protection from having my cards scanned, but also being able to locate my wallet with the tracker. What a very handy and useful item for today’s high tech protection needs. And it is so simple to get at the correct credit card when I need it.
About a month into it, I approve. Does the job and looks very sleek. Will get another if ever needed!!
This wallet is simply perfect for people who only use cards as payment method, if you usually use bills or money it is not a good solution for you
When I received my wallet, it was a bit different from expected. I expected more storage like my previous bifold. I got used to the wallet now and love it! Two credit cards, three normal cards, all I need in a day.
Love the leather quality but the left flap stayed open in the beginning. After keeping the wallet in my pocket for about a week, the flap stayed closed. I think that's how it works, the leather needs to adapt I guess.
This transformed my wallet experience. So efficient, sleek and stylish. Fan for life!
The slim designed coupled with how many times I’ve had a mini heart attack looking for it makes this wallet with the tracker worth it and every dollar I keep in it. Mechanics are the most solid I’ve seen with this type of style. Wish bills wouldn’t needed to be folded into 1/3s but cash strap makes up for that. Will be ordering multiples for family as gifts
I love, love the Parliament wallet! Slick and Stylish as well as fictional. I love the feel of the leather and the extra pockets not to mention the cool 007 card retractor. if I may make one suggestion, I am not a fan of the cash band. it works if you want to carry a few bills but anything more than a few. maybe if the band was vertical? other than that
I love the sleekness, the color and best of all the look I get in public from whomever is at the register when I pull it out and pop my debit card out. Those reactions are gold. I’m very satisfied with my purchase.
I absolutely love this wallet! A man will use a few wallets in his lifetime. For me, this is definitely the one. I love how light and compact its design is compared to other wallets I've ever used. I also love how I feel like a CEO or James Bond when I take a card out. I hate the annoying feeling of having a tough time removing your ID or cards from other wallet slits when you've had your wallet for quite some time; with this wallet, I definitely don't have that problem. It's sleek, convenient, and well-designed. Ekster gets a 5/5 from me!
This is truly the best you will ever buy! I’ve recommended this to so many people that I should get a cut of the profits.
I can feel my friends jealousy pierce my skin as I whip out this stunning eye candy of a wallet.. it just looks and feels so damn high-end and looks like something out of a james bond movies with that card button..
My friend has this wallet and since I saw it I knew I had to have it. Just arrived and it is exactly as I wanted it to be. So nice to not have to walk around with a huge wallet bulging out of my pants. I easily fit 5 cards into the main slot plus 2 more inside the leather plus change plus cash and still it remains the same slim size it was with nothing. Highly recommend this product and from this buyer. Ps get the blue
