    Passport Pouch--Add a small pocket inside for credit cards?

    I love the RFID Blocking Passport Pouch I bought in the spring, and have used it a lot for summer and fall travel. In fact, I find I use it much more than I thought I would.

    But I wish it had a credit-card sized pocket on the inside.

    I often split my credit cards and ID into two or more groups when I travel and carry them separately. So, for example, while I may use a debit card frequently to take money from an ITM and thus carry it in my wallet, I rarely ever use my credit card overseas. I usually carry it inside my passport pouch (not least for the RFID blocking part), but it can slip out if I take out my passport. Having a small inside pouch or pocket for one or two credit cards (etc.) would make the Passoprt Pouch even better.

    I ditto that request! I'd love a passport sleeve with an internal credit card pocket (not individual pockets for individual cards but one general pocket with a velcro close or something).

    That has been holding me back from purchasing the PP too. Would love to see this innovation!

    I would like to see it enlarged enough to fit the organizer pouch wallet.

    I would like to see a deluxe one big enough to fit boarding passes, letter sized paper folded into thirds, some sort of compartments for credit cards and organizing receipts and a pen slot for customs documents. I am currently using another company's travel organizer that is a bit too bulky, doesn't have o-rings and just barely fits in the side zippered pocket on the aeronaut but does what I need it to. if Tom came up with one I would hop on it in a second.

    I second and third all of these ideas. Definitely holding me back from buying a TB passport pouch.

    actually, one of the things i like about the tom bihn passport pouch is the simplicity of its design. i can see a place for a pocket inside to hold a permanent resident card or a global entry card - cards that you may use alongside your passport. but adding anymore will take away from its clean design.

    i like to use the passport pouch for my passport with boarding pass inside, along with a pen for filling out landing cards. the landing card can be folded and tucked inside the passport also.

    if i want to carry more than that - such as a print out of my e-ticket that i need to keep accessible during travel - i like carrying them in the side effect, which will hold a few other things as well.

    Can you fit more than one passport in the pouch (I usually carry both mine and my son's passport)?

    Hi jkahn, the description says it will hold three from any country. I suspect you could fit yours and your son's and maybe a couple of boarding passes.

    It will hold three Australian passports, which are, I think, the same size as US passports. I routinely carry mine and my two sons' passports in my RFID pouch. It's a tight squeeze but it works.

    I like the simplicity of the pouch. I would, however, add an internal divider.
