About this project
You’re probably familiar with the sea of RFID-shielding wallets that help prevent credit card and identity theft. Silent Pocket is different in that we offer a comprehensive line to protect all your devices – cell phones, credit cards, passports, tablets, and computers. And beyond basic RFID / NFC protection, we block out all signals, including cellular, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and NFC in all frequencies. Our unique dual-pocket design gives you the choice to go on or off the grid, all with beautiful, stylish protection in high-quality leather.
There are many different uses for our products, ranging from travel to personal privacy at home or in the office. Have the peace of mind that your security is protected in a real and tangible way, not just software on top of software.
Aside from preventing identity theft and fraud as well as corporate espionage, there are also social concerns with being constantly connected. While technology has provided us a means of connection that would have never been possible otherwise, it is also causing many to feel spread too thin. Use Silent Pocket to balance work and free time, while still being available at a moment’s notice.
We are privacy fanatics.
We’ve been in this space for five years, and our products utilize a proprietary Radio Frequency seal that blocks wireless signal.
Our Utility Patent in pending consists of our unique interlocking magnetic RF seal and a combination of the best radio frequency EMR shielding material made exclusively for Silent Pocket.
Our shielding materials used have outstanding measures of shielding efficiency in all relevant frequencies ranges of 100 kHz to 5 GHz with tremendous shielding values of 60 - 100 dB. (See more at bottom of page)
We love leather.
We have face-to-face relationships with manufacturers, have scrutinized countless samples and production runs, and obsessed over every detail. V2 is the pinnacle of our design and engineering innovation.
The fusion of function and style
At CES 2015 in Las Vegas, we exhibited in the show’s first personal privacy section. We gathered essential feedback at CES. Potential customers desired a slimmer profile, a sleeker feel, and more attractive design. Since then we have been pouring all of our time and energy into the creation of Silent Pocket V2 and the sampling process is now complete.
- upgraded napa top grain leather - soft, supple, resilient
- thinner, sleeker designs
- upgraded shielding capabilities blocking 125 khz - 5 ghz
- diamond pattern shielding made exclusively for Silent Pocket that is more durable and effective
- double ribbed internal Radio Frequency seal
- SLEEVES and DUALS both have a dual compartments: full shielding & RFID/NFC shielding
We need your help to scale our manufacturing and get our products to early adopters around the world that are as passionate about their security as us.
We are firm believers in the principle of Occam’s Razer, which is that the simplest solution to a problem is usually the best solution. This sums up our approach to design as well. You won’t see any bright colors or unnecessary features on our products. What you will see is beautiful leather, minimal branding and the highest quality shielding material, all seamlessly integrated. There are only so many ways to reinvent a wallet and personally, we aren’t interested in reinventing anything. Our goal is to tackle a modern tech problem with a classic, minimalist approach to design.
Our proprietary shielding technology can be embedded into anything. In the near future we aim to enter the travel luggage and accessory space.
Risks and challenges
We want to reinforce that this isn't our first rodeo. Silent Pocket has all the necessary relationships in place to scale our production and get the finished V2 products into your pockets in a timely manner. This campaign is instrumental is generating pre-sales to make V2 happen quick.
We are aware that there have been a couple of Kickstarter wallet campaigns before us. However, Silent Pocket is much more than a wallet. Yes, our products are sleek and minimalist, but we are tackling an entirely new problem - securing your privacy across a wide range of devices.
Communicating this to customers will be our main challenge, many of whom aren’t aware of the multitude of ways in which their devices are vulnerable. With that said, it is not our intent to be fear mongers. We have created a comprehensive line of products for tech-savvy individuals who take their privacy seriously. This is not a product for conspiracy theorists to shield themselves from the illuminati (it can do that, if you’re into that sort of thing).
Right now we have everything in place to start V2 production. It will be a challenge to gauge demand, but we have dealt with spikes before and don’t foresee that slowing us down. We guarantee zero risk of your pledge going unfulfilled.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
