After trying several solutions, this is what I am using for my credit cards. A few caveat, though. The "bungee cord" is a continuous loop rubber band inside, thread outside thing that holds the cap on. You cannot remove the cap. You stretch the band to move the cap aside. As soon as you let go it will flip back into place. The green case is cast aluminun and it seems very strong. So do the plastic caps. I'm surprised that some of my fellow reviewers reported breakage. They must have worked hard at that. I have 6 credit cards to put in it. It might hold one or two more. Any more than that and they would be jammed. Sometimes one card gets stuck because the bottom fixed plastic piece has grabbed it. Shaking the case before I open helps that. Also I make sure that my more frequently used cards are inside the stack. I believe that the case provides good shielding against remote RFID readers. The cards do not rattle much when I walk around with the case in my pocket. Some other cases sound like I have a half empty box of hard candy. This is the best credit card carrier I have found thus far. And the price is certainly right.

I have now had this for well over a year. I still use it every day. I have dropped it many times and it is still intact. I now have two credit cards with RFID chips in them. I put one in the case by itself. The reader could not read it even a half inch away. The plastic caps on either end probably can't stop radio waves. I shook the credit card to either end and the reader still did not see it. I took the card out and the reader then scanned the card from about one inch away. That part above where I said the holder could grab one card... it seems to have gone away. Cards never get stuck any more. I guess something wore down a bit to give more clearance. I still recommend this product.
