Super Powers

Wireless Identity Theft

Today tens of millions of passports and credit cards contain RFID chips that store sensitive data. Wireless identity thieves now have scanners to steal this data and use it to access your credit card accounts and other personal information.

As frequent travelers, we want to feel safe even when far from home, so we designed the Shield with an interior pocket made of nickel coated fabric that blocks RFID and wireless signals.

Common Sense Features...

We love the idea of being able to take off or put on a hood when rain falls, wind blows, or when we just want to cover our heads. However, we often found ourselves stuffing our hoods into the same pockets we keep our hands in, into our backpacks, or just holding them in our hands.

In the Shield, we designed a discreet storage pouch for the hood in the nook of the lower back. Now we do not need to worry about losing components of our performance wear and not being prepared for anything that comes along our journey.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We have been designing, manufacturing, and delivering products for the past 5 years.

We have done all the necessary steps to make sure that the Shield's quality and delivery time are met.

With every production there is risk of delay and design changes. We will do everything we can to mitigate these risks. If delays or changes happen, we will be sure to keep everyone updated through updates on our Kickstarter page.

We hope you enjoy this journey with us!
