Secrid Mini Wallet Review

While many wallets can simply hold your money, cards, and other little things that you may want to carry around with you, sometimes you want a little bit more out of your wallet. A basic wallet can do all of the above except for anything special. It simply is a way to carry things.

On the other hand, the Secrid Mini Wallet offers much more than the typical wallet. In addition to holding your cards (up to 12 at once) and your money, the Secrid wallet has a specially designed aluminum and leather structure that keeps it strong, beautiful, and light making for a pleasant carrying experience for any man.

Secrid Mini Wallet Review

The Secrid Mini Wallet is available in black, brown, vintage brown, and light brown here.

This construction also had the added benefit of providing an extra layer of security to any who want to protect their information. This wallet shields the cards that you hold inside from being read by any outside RFID readers, preventing any potential criminals from stealing your information and identity as you go around the world.

Ultimately, everything in this wallet is nicely contained in a 15mm thick package that can contain everything you need. To make this tiny package work, a quick tap on the top of the wallet causes your cards to slowly rise out, allowing you to pick the one you want.

Secrid Mini Wallets RFID Protection

So how does this wallet work in practice, and is it worth its $90 asking price? First, let’s look at the wallet’s biggest touted feature, the RFID shielding. Some recent studies have found that the strongest RFID readers can pick up a card’s information from up to 30 meters away, so one would certainly hope this wallet can protect their cards.

As it turns out, as indicated by recent studies at TNO in the Netherlands, the Secrid mini wallet serves as an effective firewall for your wallet, preventing any RFID scanners from reaching into your wallet and taking your information. This comes backed by a 2 year warrantee that will ensure that your cards will be safe and your wallet will be functional for a while.

However, there are other products—some from Secrid—that offer similar protection for your cards without having to buy an entirely new wallet. While these separate units serve to protect similarly to this wallet, they give you a bit more freedom to use the wallet of your choice, and you may even save some money in the process.

Secrid Mini Wallet Review Open

The Secrid Mini Wallet opened up.

The fact that the Secrid mini wallet combines its RFID protection into a wallet ends up being more of a burden than a benefit. While the wallet itself is made out of high quality materials, the diminutive size holds back the overall usefulness of the wallet. While Secrid claims that the mini wallet can hold 12 cards that number rapidly drops to 5 if all of your cards have embossed numbers and letters. Further, carrying cash in this wallet similarly reduces its overall carrying capacity very rapidly.

Whether this affects you or not is ultimately determined by how you use a wallet. If you have cash on hand a lot of the time and commonly use it, the Secrid mini wallet may not be the best choice for you. Similarly, if you need to carry a lot of cards at once, you may want to look for another wallet.

However, if you only need to carry a modest number of cards and you care about protecting your information from hackers, the Secrid mini wallet may be a great option for you. You can read more reviews here.

    This is a review about the Mini Wallet, not the Slim wallet. See the difference on http://www.secrid.nl/en/miniwallet.html and http://www.secrid.nl/en/slimwallet.html

    There are a number of different “sizes/styles” for the wallet, I use the basic style and blend it with the use of a basic wallet for my small change and paper money. I realize they only hold approx. 5 when embossed, but if I need to carry more then 10 cards (double wallet), I think I should be paring back my plastic. After a few days of a new thought pattern they are awesome.
