Nice little passport holder
May 1, 2018
Nice little passport holder. Good leather, simple and light, and nice stitching. No complaints and good enough if you keep your passport in a larger bag full of loose stuff where it needs the protection. I was looking instead for a travel passport wallet that hangs around your neck--either for concealing it under a shirt for security or for pocketless situations or where you just want it close and accessible while in the airports and en route, also for security. All the neck wallets I found are too big, too wide, too many pockets, carry way too much. If you've ever had a passport taken and had to get a new one in a foreign embassy, you know why you want your passport extra close and extra difficult to take from you. I noticed the nice design of this lightweight one with it's cutout corner and modified it for neck wallet use.
1) Threading a boot lace (~52") through the corner hole and a square knot hidden inside the wallet, makes a soft comfortable lanyard to wear this lightweight thing around your neck. Make sure the wallet hangs facing the right way for easy removal with your dominant hand. Try it and if not, it's easy to re-thread the boot lace from the other side.
2) Add an RFID passport sleeve to protect your document from electronic surveillance/info-theft, and also to make your passport slide in and out easily. Helps to trim the corners of the RFID card a bit to fit the wallet.
3) Remove the small line of stitches that divide the outer wallet pocket into two credit card pockets. The resulting larger pocket fits a mini-wallet like the one shown here with 6 cards and some bills.
Now you have your passport documents, credit cards, money, driver's license and other ID, all together in one secure spot where you can conceal them behind a shirt or at least where you can keep an eye on them and keep them handy.
