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.

March 30, 2013 Update

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.

A friend of mine had one of these wallets about 7 years ago and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I asked him where he got it and he said it was from some random store so I was excited when I got on Amazon and found it. Best thing about this wallet is it is SLIM! I've never been one for the bi-fold/tri-fold wallets because they just seem so big and bulky. This thing is great because it holds credit cards perfectly (there is a little room from top to bottom and while walking it might make a clunking sound if it is in your cargo pocket but I have fixed that by crushing a tiny bit of a paper towel on either end). As far as holding money, my umbra wallet is full of credit cards so I keep cash in my pocket and 99% of my purchases are paid for by card anyway. The elastic band is very durable, but mine is starting to show a little slack in it as of late. Keep in mind I have had mine for 5+ years and the reason why it has started to stretch out is because my work pants have 1 tight pocket that I keep it in and when I have been pulling it out it snags. I absolutely LOVE this thing and I am going to buy a second one because 1. these things are very cheap 2. the plastic cover on the top on one side has cracked a bit and I feel that for the $5 I have paid for it, it is well worth another purchase.

This little case helps me organize all those silly store membership cards that i hate keeping in my wallet waiting for the very few times i use them. I keep it in my car and pull em out when I need it.. The metal matches the interior trim of my car.. thanks

My husband and I have both used these for years. They easily fit 8-9 cards and is much more compact & easy to carry than a bulky wallet. I use one for ID/credit cards and the other for insurance cards, etc. For years people have commented and asked where they can purchase these and I highly recommend them.

I purchased a pink one about 6 years ago at a bed, bath/linens store that ended up going out of business. Many wanted to know where I had gotten it, and I was disappointed telling them. One day, I finally thought of going to umbra.com and low and behold, they still made them

Now, to my surprise, Amazon has them. It looks like a very good Christmas for my friends and family.
1) The bungee never gives out 2) Holds many cards and even photos 3) Great for emergency info. Just put a sticker on it! Hey, it hols cash, too!

My husband loves this as his wallet. He gets compliments on it all the time. It's very easy to use on a regular basis. He uses it to house all his cards and occasionally puts his cash in it. This may not be the best for someone who mainly carries cash because you'd have to fold up your money to place it in the wallet and it wouldn't be organized. As with any wallet, it can only withstand so much use. His ended up cracking because he dropped it so many times, but that's why we bought more.

This item is well made and is just right for carrying cards with the magnetic strip on the back side. works well. Easy access. STOPS intended criminals from getting my information.

I have been using this item for approx. 5 years, it protects your cards from the bar codes being erased, dry, handy and cannot be decoded by someone stealing the info as the new technology of criminals have obtained. Fits nicely in pocket. I don't carry a purse or money, just my UMBRA card case. Bungee cord has never failed or worn out. Gave one to many family members as gifts, as they are very inexpensive. Unfortunately, difficult to find as being available from manufacturer.

I've been using this wallet for a couple weeks and I'm on the fence about whether to switch back to my old slim leather wallet. This thing is very sturdy and well made, but here are my issues:

1. Once you remove the lid, there's no where to put it. You have to hold the wallet open while you find what you're looking for. It would be much more convenient if the lid was hinged or could attach to the bottom of the wallet. This is by far my biggest gripe.

2. It's not very good for cash. I don't usually carry much cash so it's not a huge concern, but to put cash in this wallet you have to double fold it, then it disappears behind the aluminum portion never to be seen again. And to get the cash out, you have to dump all the contents because those bills aren't coming out easily.

So I like it, don't love it. It certainly looks cool and is different, but not as convenient as I had hoped.

Update: I've since gone back to my Dopp Regiment Front Pocket Getaway. I'm on my second one in the last few years and yet to find anything better.
