Sturdy holder for multiple cards
on 28 January 2014
Had one of these for a while now, and use it primarily for bank cards. Very sturdy and good protection for the cards, I can fit two cards comfortably in each slot so 12 cards fitted with ease. Obviously there is finite space within the product so if you try and overload the slots then the holder will no longer close, so recommend two per slot as the limit, you may get away with three at the ends depending on the thickness of the cards you put in it.
I can't make an informed judgement on the RFID blocking capabilities of the product but understand the concerns with plastic bank style wallets particularly with "drive-by" reading attacks so for me was better safe than sorry.
Satisfying click when the holder is closed however the clasp is plastic so likely to be the first part to eventually fail, but looking good so far despite daily use. Even if it should fail at the price there was no downside to selecting this product and would definitely buy one again to replace it.
** 2015 update **
So here I am two years later (I originally reviewed after using it for half a year or so), having dropped this on the floor countless times, regularly tried to stuff too many cards into it and generally given it a fair amount of abuse - and it still survives. I had some reservations about the longevity of the clasp when I wrote the original review but I am pleased to say it has lasted well, despite being used almost every day and often several times a day.
Two years of use and the individual card holders inside are starting to split down the sides (I have two cards in each), and the edge of each of the ridges on the top of the case have worn the blue colour away down to a normal metallic silver colour.
In short this product has been fantastic value for money. Now the sides have started to split I need a new one, and am buying exactly the same item again, except now they are even cheaper than they were before!
A highly recommended purchase that has lasted exceptionally well given the price paid - and now it is even cheaper to replace it with new.
