    Pretty much what it says. I need a badge holder that will prevent contactless cards from being read, but still allows easy removal/insertion. I've been looking at the Identity Stronghold Secure Badge Holder Duolite card holders since they carry a FIPS-201 approval. OTOH, I like the style of the Hazard4 Badger (non-geeky pocket protector), but I need the security of a RFID blocker.

    Recommendations?

    Find out what frequency your badge runs and make sure it's supported for whatever you buy. There's very few that support all possible frequencies (none are good looking lol)

    Silent pocket is my favorite brand. That said I like the generic sleeves in my badger. Little tough to get some of em in the badger but worth it not having to dig for a wallet

    Remember none are unhackable they just knock the range way down...Difference between grabbing it a block away and playing grabass

    Probably true for a commercial variant, but if you could find one manufactured from solid copper strap material sized to fit where the card slid in snug, it would be :censored: hard.

    A copper business card like case with copper finger stock around the seams would blot out the sun pretty much.
