Stainless Steel RFID Blocking Passport Wallet
We put together a gift guide for hackers with the help of MIT engineer & hacker, Limor "Ladyada" Fried - and got some of her top recommendations in the realm of all things open source electronics and hacker gear.
Upadate December 2, 2013: When Limor told me about Adafruit's massive sale going on right now, I decided we had to update this great guide Limor helped me put together last year.
This products in this guide are updated on every page, further because Adafruit is having a massive Cyber Monday Sale that is going until 11:59pm Eastern time December 2 (today), or until this page is changed.
- Use the code CYBERMONDAY and get 15% off everything.
- Also on everything: free UPS ground shipping (continental USA) for orders $75 or more. Trackable, dependable and guaranteed shipping.
- In addition to the above: If your order is $99 you get a free PCB ruler.

Now, to the list.
The Stainless Steel RFID Blocking Passport Wallet ($85, photo above) is an RFID blocking wallet that keeps all your RFID enabled cards - also RFID enabled forms of ID such as your passport - safe from identity theft. I have one and it's thin yet really tough; its woven microfibers give the wallet a texture of silk over leather and the steel is an attractive matte silver.
