The wallet itself is very simple and easy to use. You can just press the external catch to open and inside there are 6 compartments, for inserting your cards. You can also put banknotes and bills in here, folded up small enough to fit.
The wallet has the advantage of being quite small. When you are travelling, you really do not want it to be obvious that you are carrying a wallet, so something that remains hidden is good. When travelling, you might be in a hot country, and not wearing a jacket. This small wallet fits nicely into your trouser pocket without creating too much of a bulge. Ladies who prefer not to or cannot use trouser pockets, will find that this small wallet fits neatly inside their handbag or purse.
Being metal on the outside, it is strong and waterproof, although cards will not suffer any damage from getting wet. The metal casing also provides a block of radio frequencies, thus protecting your contactless cards from card skimmers and from accidentally paying for things when your wallet is close to a contactless card reader. There is nothing worse than either having your card details stolen and used fraudulently, or buying things without even knowing it.
Even if you are not travelling to other countries or anywhere hot, and you have a normal wallet, like a leather wallet that you keep cards and cash in, you might still want to use a metal RFID-blocking wallet for your contactless cards.
It is also a great ideal to not keep all your cards and cash in one place. Otherwise you might find yourself unable to pay for something, should you accidentally leave your wallet at home or, even worse, it gets stolen by a pick-pocketer whilst out in public. If you put some of your cards (including all the contactless ones) in this metal wallet, as a secondary wallet, along with some of your cash, keeping other cards and some cash in your leather wallet, then you will have the metal wallet as a backup in case of not having the first wallet. That way, if you left it at home, you still have at least one card and some cash — so long as you remember to keep the metal wallet somewhere on your person or in your bag every time you go out. Maybe keep it in your jacket pocket or bag so that you will never forget it? So long as it is in a sealed pocket, of course, so that no one can steal it easily, and so that it cannot fall out of your pocket when you take your coat off.
