You are looking at “the next generation of wallets” — a money holder made of high strength polymers, black aluminum, that locks itself shut, flips itself open, and shields and protects your credit cards from RFID theft.
It’s called the Flipside Wallet, and while it won’t flex and bulge when you have a wad of cash or cards, it will keep your assets more safe than they’ve ever been — while still in your pocket. It has 4 separate compartments: 2 for cards, 1 for photos, and 1 for cash. It comes in three colors, weighs just over 2 ounces (when empty), and measures 4.25″ x 2.75″, making it about the size of a cell phone. The polymers and metals it’s made of are even recyclable, so the Flipside Wallet is entirely green.
The Flipside Wallet will run you a cool $40 (plus shipping), which seems like a lot for a wallet, but as RFID enabled cards become more and more prevalent, having some kind of shielding to prevent electronic theft will be a real necessity.
