Wallets have traditionally been designed to hold cash, not cards. Thing is, cash is fast becoming yesterday’s currency, a fact most wallet makers seem keen to ignore. For this reason we’ve been on the lookout for a pocket-sized receptacle that will protect flexible friends as well as wonga, whilst exuding a dash of 21st century style. Step forward the gorgeously sleek Ogon RFID Wallet.
Prevents cards from bending, snapping and cracking
This revolutionary wallet is encased in light but über sturdy protective aluminium to prevent cards from bending, snapping and cracking. And get this: its special casing shields cards from RFID scanners and demagnetisation (which can strip out data). This means you won’t fall victim to tech-savvy fraudsters or Wile E. Coyote-style cartoon characters armed with comedy u-shaped magnets. You can laugh but scoundrels are already nicking card details by the bucketload using portable scanners.
Available in plain black, silver and blue
Available in eight stylish designs, and ideal for both men and women, the Ogon’s matt black interior fans open to reveal seven tear-resistant expandable pockets that can accommodate up to ten cards. As well as making for easy access, this capacious system means you can carry essential plastic such as your cashpoint/credit card alongside unimportant cards such as your Michelle Heaton fan club membership. ‘Nectar card?’ For the first time ever, quite possibly!
Exclusive to Firebox: Carbon and Star designs
Also available: Ebony, Flowers and Liberty designs
A (vastly improved) clip at the top of the Ogon keeps it sealed, but it’s worth opening just to hear the satisfying click it produces – unless all your credit cards are maxed out, in which case you’ll be too scared to look at them in the first place. Still, there’s always cash, and this smart wallet can comfortably accommodate that too.
If you’re still stuffing your cards in some soppy surfer-style affair or even a top-notch designer wallet, now is the time to step into the future and give your cards a safe and stylish home. So come on, dig out your plastic and get ordering!
