Carry and protect your passport or other sensitive documents while traveling.
The Passport Pouch is designed to carry and protect your passport or other sensitive documents while traveling. It opens and closes via Velcro® and fits up to four passports of any country, with or without protective plastic sleeves. It's made with two of our favorite ultralight fabrics from Japan: an exterior of 200d Halcyon ripstop and a lining of Aether.
It can be worn under or outside your clothing, or around your neck or waist—whatever works best for you. The neck/waist cord is adjustable; it's also removable, allowing you to clip the pouch into many of our bags via a Key Strap.
The protection value of RFID-blocking passport holders and wallets is debated. Some folks may choose to purchase RFID-blocking accessories because they’d prefer to be “better safe than sorry”; others don’t find compelling evidence of the efficacy of RFID-blocking accessories and therefore don’t see reason to use them. We recommend doing your own research to determine if RFID-blocking accessories are right for you.
All that said, it’s easy enough for us to offer our Passport Pouch in both an RFID-blocking version and a standard, non-RFID blocking version, so that’s what we choose to do:
Passport Pouch, Standard
A simple, straight-forward and well-made passport pouch, it gets the job done well.
Passport Pouch, RFID Blocking
Underneath its interior lining of Aether fabric, this version features a layer of a special metalized fabric that will effectively block detection or reading of RFID chips.

Sewn in Seattle
Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?
