Kena Kai Lifestyle Gear is a brand that offers Data Safe wallets. If you are like me, and didn’t know what this was until I first discovered the site, let me full you in. The DataSafe® Wallets are patent-pending wallets which are Government Certified to meet their standards for an “Electromagnetically Opaque Sleeve”. This protects you against the rising threat of Identity Theft, Credit Card Fraud and Tracking. It does this with multiple layers of radio-frequency (RF) shielding material, which protects your personal information from the threat of wireless identity theft. Pretty cool, huh?
Kena Kai sent me one of their wallets, the black Nappa leather Zippered DataSafe Wallet. You’d never know that this wallet is used for a bigger purpose, just by looking at it. But, upon inspection of the inside – I do see a thicker material. This doesn’t hinder the wallet in any way, but I notice that it does make it sturdier (not so easy to bend). Now, I’m not quite so sure how to test the wallet to see if it does in fact protect against identity theft from wireless devices…(I think me not knowing how to do that is a good thing) But, this is one instance that I have to take their word for it. But, I do know that with more and more identification and Bank Cards having the chips in them, it’s only a matter of time before wireless identity theft may be a problem. If you are interested, there is A LOT more information on this secure protection, Here (and check out the press that has been buzzing about Kena Kai too!).
Besides the cool protection thing, I like the size of this particular wallet. It can hold money (there is a cash slot and a coin zippered pocket), cards, medical cards, store Gift Certificates, receipts, coupons and so much more in it. Seriously, I used to have 2 wallets that I toted around, Hey – I carry around information for a family of 5 here! Everything fits into this wallet, and when I need to, it can hold multiple passports too. There are actually a total of twenty-six pockets/slots and each one of these is lined with the DataSafe material. And, it all zippers so that nothing can fall out! You think with all this space, plus the 19 layers RF shielding material – this would be one huge wallet. But, it’s really not, I can easily put it into any purse or diaper bag.
I like the classic black on that I was sent, but there is also other colors as well.
