Shield your passports in style

Italian leather to block RFID signals

Months ago we mentioned the " Passport Stronghold ," a reinforced pouch designed to protect your personal information from ID spies. It might work just fine, but it looks like a burlap sack with an amateurish logo slapped on it--hardly a fashion statement.

"Lifestyle gear" company Kena Kai may have a solution that bridges security and style for carrying the new RFID visas. Gearlog says its "DataSafe" passport wallets block radio signals that could be intercepted while featuring Italian leather finishes of various stains and colors for men and women.

But will anyone come up with a decently designed container for carry-on liquids? Plastic bags are so hoi polloi.
