How durable are your RFID-Blocking sleeves?
The sleeves are made of a 3-layer material: paper/metal coating/paper; and so under normal use, we would expect the outside paper would last to up to five years under normal use or beyond. The protection itself never expires, there is nothing that is emitted from the sleeves; the metal protects against the skimming theft. These sleeves are a highly economical way to provide a common sense solution against ID theft. The paper is indeed both very thin and flexible - but it is also an amazing piece of technology. Sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of paper is the nano thin layer of metal - and it is precisely this metal layer which provides the barrier for RFID protection. This combination of paper and metal bonded together creates an exceedingly durable sleeve.
Also available Passport Sleeve are RFID Blocking Sleeves - see sellers "other items" for further information.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Skimming is a form of digital theft, which enables information from RFID based smart cards to be read and duplicated. It can be used as a form of wireless identity theft or credit card theft among other forms of information theft. Typically it works by illegitimately reading of RFID chips at a distance using a cheap RFID reader device, which downloads the card information. From there, it can be written to a new blank card, which then operates in the same manner as the original legitimate card.
