In the world of Men's accessories one of the newest and quickly rising must have's is the RFID protected secret wallet, and one of the leaders in this new market is the fast rising crowdfunded European company Ekster.

The Ekster Parliament 2.0 wallet is exquisitely packaged in sleek cellophane wrapped black boxes with embossed black lettering. The expectation of something special increases as the package is unwrapped.

Opening the box, without reviewing the mechanism of the wallet one sees the quality of the leather with a crest shield on the bottom right corner surrounding an branded "E." Soft calf skin with small well defined stitching and an branded Ekster stamped on the interior leather.

In addition to being "smart" the wallet is also attractive. As the 2.0 suggests the wallet has undergone some changes that have help create solid buzz for the small, smart and attractive wallet.

The Ekster Parliament 2.0 wallet is folio designed, smaller than the size of a handheld device, although it fits snugly in the palm of the hand, with the trigger mechanism, a spring latch that exposes the contents of the secret chamber.

The secret chamber can hold four to five standard credit cards with two additional side panel slots on the interior. These are not hidden from view. A quick touch of the trigger, even filled with five cards, and the hidden chamber is exposed with the top of the cards exposed, each slightly decreasing in view. The activation pressure of the trigger doesn't depend on the amount of cards in the chamber. A light touch is all that is necessary.

The Ekster Parliament has a built in RFID protector within the chamber so there is no need to concern oneself with skimming.

The wallet is not crafted to hold an cash or coin. The monogrammed black money strap on the interior of the folio holds no more than four bills quartered without rising up, or bulking.

Forbes Magazine recently featured the owners of the Ekster Parliament 2.0, with a feature titled, "The Smart Wallet Crowdfunders Who Accidentally Built The Most Advanced Solar Panel In The World" which attests to the functionality of the Blue Tooth tracking system.

The solar powered blue tracker system , which is one of the first personal products, outside of home appliances, that have become mainstream, performs as one would expect a tracking system to function. The app allows the user to create multiple alerts including a separation alert and a detailed geographical map directing the user to the specific location where one can find the wallet should it be lost or stolen.

The blue tooth tracker solar powered unit slides into exterior pocket of the Ekster Parliament 2.0. The solar panel at the top of the blue tooth tracker card is the thickness of two credit cards and has an initiation button on the front. The blue tooth tracker can be used or not as the RFID protection works independent of the blue tooth system. The wallet come with the solar powered blue tooth card/app or without. The difference in the wallet price is approximately $20.00 USD. 

As this is the Parliament 2.0, one understands it is the second generation of the Ekster Parliament secret wallet.

The first generation had the blue tooth tracker built into the wallet which created bulk on the chamber. The Ekster Parliament 2.0 has removed the blue tooth tracking system from the secret chamber, streamlining the size and providing users the choice of utilizing the service.

Users of the 2.0 who have purchased the solar panel will slip the panel into the exterior pocket of wallet. The solar panel eliminates any need for a charging cable and two hours of sunlight, even say, sitting in a sunny location having lunch with the panel removed or exposed to the sun and the charge will last three months.

Ekster®, known for bringing to life the first and only solar-powered trackable wallet, was recently featured by Forbes, Mashable, Digital Trends and many more for its innovation. These "un-losable" wallets would make a great gift and holiday shopping deal for your readers as they are packed with cool features and will go out at major holiday discounts.
