So, what exactly does "RFID blocking" mean?

We're glad you asked! The zippered back compartment is lined with built-in RFID protection, which means that it shields the chips inside of your cards and IDs from the harmful radio waves that thieves use to steal information. It will help protect the money you work so hard for - and most importantly your identity.
