Product Features:(Taken From Amazon Product Listing)

  • High grade plastic wallet with aluminium shell, custom design by SHARKK® brands.
  • Do not stuff the wallet more than the allotted space.
  • Integrated RFID repellant technology protects you from Credit-Card scanning thieves. Standard Size: 3.02″x 4.39″x 0.81″
  • Seven secure slots fold out accordion style and hold up to 7 cards.

Design:

This wallet by Sharkk has been designed to keep wireless debit/credit cards safe as well as other cards that use RFID chips. A great feature as banks are upgrading people to these wireless cards. Whilst banks are busy doing that thieves are busy finding ways to exploit RFID to steal your money from these cards even if it means targeting the outside of your normal wallet of purse.

The wallet has a plastic body and an aluminium casing. This combination surprisingly makes the wallet feel really nice. The wallet is lockable and unlockable by the use of a plastic clip at the top. This clip is easy to use and feels strong and sturdy. There can be times when closing the wallet and locking the clip requires a bit of encouragement.

At the back of the wallet is a money strap for storing folded over bank notes. I do think this would be better inside as this leaves the banknotes prone to the elements and other issues.

Inside the wallet are seven card slots made from a thick plastic and designed to open out as the wallet is open and shut back in as the wallet is closed

The wallet is coloured in grey with black colouring on plastic parts and the clip. Sharkk’s logo is present on the front of the wallet.

In use:

I have really enjoyed using this wallet over a normal wallet. Seven cards slots has proved to be more than enough for me and I have also found myself no longer leaving receipts and old bus tickets in the wallet as the design of this wallet won’t really allow me to. I haven’t got any RFID cards at the moment but it is my understanding that my bank is in the process of replacing mine with one so I will soon be able to fully benefit from the security features of this wallet. It’s not to bulky and when full it isn’t too heavy either. The wallet is also waterproof and this has really been beneficial to me these past few days as I have been out getting soaked by rain.

Overall:

A fantastic wallet that looks good and offers protection against RFID reading devices operated by thieves. It’s great to use and has even converted me from and old traditional wallet. The only thing I’m not a fan of is leaving money in the money strap as it is on the outside of the wallet and exposed.
