Today, April 26, 2016 is a very important day, as it the exciting launch date of a new travel essential. The Pagalli Project will bring an entire new collection of leather wallets to the market via Indiegogo. Not only are they crafted to perfection, but they also contain the world’s strongest ID theft protection, since the wallets are certified to block 100% of all known RFID/NFC frequencies; meaning travelers’ identities (i.e. name, address, Social Security number, phone number, bank account details, and more) are protected in any country across the globe.
Pagalli’s unwavering commitment to quality is apparent from the moment your wallet arrives. All of the packaging is made from upcycled leather fibers, elegantly hand stitched, and closed with a wax seal. It is almost too pretty to open!
Why is it so important to make sure that your wallet can prevent electronic pick pocketing? Travelers are at a huge risk. A recent report estimated 17.6 million Americans were victims of identity theft with 86% of victims experiencing the misuse of an existing credit card or bank account.
How do Pagalli wallets prevent electronic pick pocketing? There are ten current frequencies that travelers need to be shielded from in order to have peace of mind that personal ID and financial information will not be lifted by a high tech thieves. Conventional RFID blockers only address a portion of these frequencies. For instance, some examples of items in different frequencies: access key cards (125 kHz), electronic passports or credit cards (13.56 MHz), and personnel ID cards (2.54 GHz). Pagalli wallets are certified to block 100% of all known RFID/NFC frequencies. ID fraud claims a new victim every two seconds. If you are not taking proactive steps to protect the personal information in your wallet, you risk becoming part of this statistic.
Combining the traditional values of masterful craftsmanship, style, and functionality with the most innovative technology, Pagalli wallets are ideal for today’s lifestyle, but have deep roots in the past. The inspiration behind The Pagalli Project — Vincente Pagalli — was an Italian adventurer and entrepreneur. Pagalli had a genuine passion to create truly excellent leather accessories that were made with locally sourced materials. He was someone who valued quality above all else.
Pagalli wallets are made from only the finest, carefully selected, sustainable, and consciously sourced materials; including their own vegetable-tanned leather developed with a local tannery and the finest Surin Thai silk. This commitment to redefining what a quality wallet should be is further evidenced by the inclusion of the best RFID protection available. Pagalli wallets contain the industry’s leading data theft security foil. To ensure that this innovative technology is applied in the optimum fashion, Pagalli wallets have undergone vigorous testing and certification. The technology used by Pagalli wallets is one of the few blocking foils in the world. Pagalli products are created honestly and under fair conditions and the brand stands behind them by offering a lifetime warranty. Because everything is directly sourced and carefully planned to achieve the highest cost efficiencies, Pagalli wallets are offered at affordable prices. The brand maintains a direct manufacturing environment where it operates its own production lines.
I was sent the Vincente Passport Holder to review. The Vincente keeps passports, boarding passes, cards, and other content in one place. With a slim profile that fits in suit jackets, purses, and handbags — travelers can ensure important data is 100% secure. It features: two RFID shielded multiple cards compartments, a sim card holder, a bank note and boarding pass compartment, a passport pocket (up to two passports)., and slim style Pagalli pen.
