RFID Blocking Premium Leather Front Pocket Wallet Brown

$60.00

Description

What is an RFID Blocking Wallet, and why do I need one?

RFID microchips are handy little devices that store and share information. The problem is that these chips can't decide who they share their information with! As shown in Tyler's Vlog anyone can buy an RFID reader and scan information from an RFID chip. 

People have been using these readers to steal credit card information just by walking passed someone. Many credit card companies have solved the issue but if your credit cards have a little "wifi" logo on them with a microchip embedded beneath it then you could be vulnerable. 

Our new RFID Blocking wallets contain a special metal alloy that prevents RFID chips from sending their information out while the card is in the wallet.

Details

When it comes to wallets, we believe that in many ways, less is more. We start with the best leather available and treat it as the star. We've used minimal layers to keep things slim without sacrificing the durability of the structure. 

We have refined this design over the last 2 years and are confident enough in it's functionality and endurance, that we have included it in our Lifetime Guarantee. Which is something 99% of wallet makers wouldn't dream of.

The Front Pocket Wallet has been Tyler's pet project since he founded Rugged Material. Tired of an achy back but not wanting to go credit card only he set out to find the perfect balance between minimalism and practicality. This is literally the 22nd iteration and we've definitely nailed it! 

Its made with the same leathers and design influence as the Bifold but the Front Pocket Wallet is 40% thinner. It can easily hold 10 cards plus a wad of cash and still not leave a terrible bulge in the front of your jeans or in your jacket. 

This wallet is comparable to wallets that sell for $100 or more. Thanks to our Direct to Consumer model you get it for much less since you don't have to pay retail markup.

The Horween Leather Company has set the standard for the highest quality leathers in the world since 1905. They offer a wide range of tannages from the infamous Genuine Shell Cordovan and the luxurious Chromexcel (the leather we've chosen to use) to Sport Leathers used by Wilson for the NFL and Footwear Leathers used by Wolverine, Allen Edmunds and New Balance. As always, all of their leather is processed on the corner of Elston and Ashland in Chicago, Illinois.

Why Chromexcel

Chromexcel aka "CXL" is a combination tannage giving us the best of the Chrome tanned leather properties along with the best of the vegetable tanned properties. This means its tough like saddle leather but at the same time its supple and luxurious.

"Pull up" is a term used to describe the event of leather lightening in color as it is bent or folded. It happens because of the waxes in the leather and is a sign of proper treatment for longevity. CXL will patina beautifully because of it. The waxes and oils in the leather allow it to be shined with a horsehair brush or you can leave it alone and enjoy the natural semi matte sheen.

This leather is made right. The formula for CXL is about 100 years old. It takes just under a month to tan one of these hides because it undergoes almost 90 different processes. That is true attention to detail!

Horween is an enviornmentally friendly tannery (hard to find these days) in that they treat all the water that leaves the facility after they use it.
