Nodus Compact Coin RFID Shielding Wallet review

The Nodus Compact Coin Wallet is a great slim-profile wallet with the added bonus of RFID shielding technology. The build quality and materials are top-notch with the only real drawback being the expensive price tag.

The Nodus Compact coin arrives in some great packaging befitting of its overall quality.

The wallet itself is packaged inside of a lovely little fabric pouch emblazoned with the Nodus logo.

The Compact Coin comes with a handy little info card detailing the purpose of the internal sleeves and pockets.

Nodus Compact Coin Features

  • Holds 2-17 Cards + Coins + Folded Notes + 1 Key
  • Keeps all inner cards safe & stops ‘Card Clash’ with RFID shielding
  • Pays contactless from two external RFID enabled cards
  • Expandable internal coin pocket
  • Dedicated note sleeve with key slot
  • Full grain vegetable tanned Italian leather
  • 2.7 in tall x 4 in wide

The Italian leather of the Compact Coin is soft and supple, but feels amazingly resilient. Embedded in the fabric is Nodus’ RFID shielding technology which prevents criminals from scanning any RFID chip enabled credit cards held inside the wallet.

The outside sleeves allow for easy access to cards that you use often or for RFID enabled cards that you want to be easily scannable.

After a few weeks of daily use, the Compact Coin has quickly become part of my every day carry. I’m always surprised by how easily it disappears into my front pocket and by how many items I can fit inside.

The one thing about the Compact Coin that’s both annoying and ironic is that it is definitely not useful for holding coins. Any coins placed in the designated coin section inevitably end up dispersed throughout the wallet after the slightest bit of jostling.

The key compartment is much more useful and allows you to keep one emergency key on your person at all times. It’s a bit too small for a full vehicle key, but works great for a house key or something smaller.

The zipper and surrounding material keep all of the wallet’s important contents secure inside despite my efforts to overload the wallet with credit cards and various shopper loyalty cards.
