Here are some wallets and ID card cases that have RFID technology, look stylish, and have the functionality that you would need from a wallet or ID card case.


 RFID Blocking Wallets

The Tyler Tumbled collection of wallets are made of a very mellow milano grained leather that is known to be soft, smooth, durable and rugged. The Bryant collection of wallets are made of an Italian waxed pull-up leather that develops a rich patina over time. These wallets were designed with some thought put into it. They designed the wallets with rounded corners because wallets designed with pointed corners tend to bend and curl in over time. Since times are changing, Boconi has designed the wallets for the needs of today. They designed them to carry your important items such as your ID card, membership cards, credit and debit cards, currency, and business cards. One great feature about these wallets is the clear ID pocket. This makes it easy to show your ID, and the open spot in the middle makes it easy to slide your ID in and out. Check out more of the features and options here at!

RFID Blocking ID Card Cases



























There are two styles to Boconi’s line of ID card cases, the Bryant and Tyler Tumbled. The Bryant style has a leather that is made out of an Italian waxed pull-up leather that would eventually develop a rich patina over time. The lining is made out of Boconi’s own houndstooth pattern. The Tyler Tumbled is made out of the mellow milano grained leather that is smooth yet rugged. They have a Terra cotta colored lining as well. What makes these ID cases convenient is the clear ID window for easy viewing and a thumb-slide for easy access. They have enough room for a few needed credit cards and some cash. These wallets work great when you don’t want to carry more than what you need. Check out more details and options at!

I’m pretty sure many of you travelers out there have had to deal with the rising costs of overweight baggage  And some of you are unfamiliar with the way airlines charge according to how heavy your luggage is. Most airlines have a weight limit of 50 lbs., and if you exceed that weight, you WILL incur additional fees. Depending on the weight of the bag, most airlines charge an extra $100 to $200 per bag. So what I have decided to do is give you all a breakdown on the various luggage scales that we offer that CAN and WILL help you plan ahead when packing your luggage for that next trip.


Lewis & Clark Digital Luggage Scale


lewis_n_clark_digital_luggage_scalelewis_n_clark_digital_luggage_scale use












This new product by Lewis N Clark is a great scale because of its simplicity. All you have to do is lift your luggage, wait for the beep, set it down and read the weight. With the contoured grip handle and durable strap, it can weigh up to 100 pounds. It also has a large digital display for an easy readout. Unlike most electronic devices, this scale comes with two CR2032 button cell batteries so the scale can be used as soon as you open the package. You can find it at for $22.00.


Samsonite Electronic Luggage Scale


electronic Scaleelectric Scale 2












Samsonite has a digital scale out on the market that is very similar to the Lewis N Clark model. However there are some variations to it that make it different. It works in the same manner by connecting it to your luggage and lifting it up. The readout then will tell you the weight. It has a comfort grip handle and the strap is adjustable so users of different heights can use it comfortably. It is compact and portable with a capacity of 80 pounds. This scale also comes with two CR2032 button cell batteries so it is ready to use right out of the package. This scale can be found at for $16.97.


Balanzza Mini Digital Luggage Scale

The Balanzza Mini scale is considered the smallest and lightest luggage scale available on the market. It has the same functionality as the other two scales in which you connect it to your luggage, lift, wait for the beep, and read the weight. The strap is strong because this scale has a capacity of 111 pounds (44 Kg). Yes, that’s right, it can read the weight in pounds and kilograms! This scale has a hold function as well so you can read the weight of your luggage before placing back on the floor. It also comes with two CR2032 button cell batteries. This lightweight, compact scale can be purchased at for $23.90.


Travelon Digital Micro Scale

The Travelon Micro scale is the same type of scale as the ones above, but it also has some unique features. This scale is one of the lightest ones in its class, but it is known for giving the fastest readings. It will tell you the weight of a bag within 2-3 seconds! The scale uses a strong metal hook instead of a strap to weigh out your luggage with a capacity of 110 lbs or 50 kg. When it locks into your weight reading, a red light comes on to notify you that it is done weighing out the luggage. If you forget to turn off the scale, no worries. It has an auto shut-off feature which turns off the scale after 60 seconds of inactivity. This scale also comes with two CR2032 button cell batteries. This scale can be purchased at for $23.90.

Known for making some of the most durable luggage available, Travelpro is introducing its 10th version of their Crew product line. The Travelpro Crew 10 product line has been given many improvements on their already popular Crew 9 product line. The Crew product line has been in the Travelpro family for about 20 years now. The new Crew 10 line is perfect for those travelers who are looking for durability, dependability, and ease of travel when visiting airports both foreign and domestic. You can select from various types and sizes of luggage such as Non-Rolling or Rolling Totes, Rollaboard Suiters, Rolling Garment Bags, and Spinner Suiters. I believe that the new Crew 10 series is the best Crew series that has been brought to market. Here are some of the new innovations that are introduced in the Crew 10 series:


Contour Grip Design with TPR Touch Points &

PowerScope Aluminum Extension Handle


The Crew 10 line has introduced a new patented contour grip on the spinners’ handle to reduce the tension on the shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands when pushing the luggage. It also provides superior comfort and control.The extraordinarily strong handle is designed to minimize wobbling when pushed for pulled and it has stops at 38″ and 42.5″ to make sure it rolls comfortably for people of different heights. Made of airline-grade aluminum tubes, the handle is strong enough to support a tote or case.



Magna-Trac System with Dual Wheel Spinners

Also found on the Crew 10 spinners is a Magna-Trac system with a set of two wheels on each bottom corner. Because of this, the spinner has a total of eight wheels which improve the maneuverability of the luggage. The Magna-Trac system is a great feature because when the luggage is pushed, magnets align the wheels in the direction you want it to go. Luggage without this feature tend to drift and pull to one side or the other which cause strain on the shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand.





Unique Bottom Tray

A new addition The the Crew 10 Spinners is a bottom tray that helps to align and stabilize the wheels.


SUPRA™ Zippers Heads

These special zippers have been reinforced to ensure they are reliable for all those trips when traveling far and wide.

“Intelligent” Compression Straps

The new design for the compression straps system is that they are designed to slide along the entire length of the bag. This makes it very effective because it can now secure different amounts of packed items during travel.
