SLAB Wallet
I wanted to give people a wallet that offers them the freedom to carry the money they need and gives them the peace of mind provided by security.

Montreal (PRWEB) January 29, 2014

Today, wallet designer Vladimir Pashkov introduces SLAB to Kickstarter. SLAB is an RFID protected magic travel wallet that offers frequent travelers heightened security by compartmentalizing cash and cards. Those interested can now begin backing the Kickstarter campaign and pre-ordering their SLABs.

“I’ve lived all over the world,” Pashkov said. “I know what it’s like to worry about pickpocketing in an unfamiliar area. I wanted to give people a wallet that offers them the freedom to carry the money they need and gives them the peace of mind provided by security.”

According to the US Bureau of Consular Affairs, one of the most important pieces of advice when traveling abroad is making sure not to flash large amounts of cash when making a purchase in public. It seems simple enough, but travelers often have no choice but to keep sufficient cash and cards on their person. SLAB provides them with the ability to carry the cash they need and gives them peace of mind that they are doing so securely.

Because the SLAB is a three-plate magic wallet, it allows people to secure small bills in one compartment and big bills in another. Pashkov fashioned it this way so that only the ‘small bill’ compartment is flipped open in public spaces, preventing money-hungry eyes from targeting SLAB carriers. Later, when paying for dinner or another large purchase in a more secure location, the compartment filled with ‘big bills’ can be accessed. Owning a SLAB is a smart resource to prevent pickpocketing during travel.

Taking security just one step further, SLAB acknowledges the growing threats of identity theft, namely credit and debit card fraud. Pashkov’s SLAB is reinforced with RFID security protection, which protects against thievery via a digital card reader.

Starting today, product backers have the opportunity to pre-order their SLAB, and they receive a special discount ranging from $10 to $31 off regular price. Pashkov needs to raise $18,000 in order to get production of SLAB off the ground.
