  • Hello, I am working at a job that requires me to display my ID along with two other cards for access to specified areas (3 different swipe cards in all. They offer a very flimsy carry case with a cord and I am hoping for something more stylish (leather or aluminum), durable and practical for every day use. If I do not find a recommendation, I may have to invent one!

I use this. It allows me to quickly remove my cards yet they are still able to be accessed by the contact reader.

Saddleback Leather's smallest wallet ("Leather ID Wallet") may be perfect. I use it as my primary wallet (license, four cards, and cash), and it is very easy to remove the license, and the front cards in each of the compartments. (There's no plastic in the ID pocket - just a window you can push your card through.) Plus, it'll last forever.

If you need to display the ID card all the time (rather than "on demand") than this wouldn't work at all.

We use Baumgarten's BAU 68110 ID holder. Not exactly a "case" but they work great.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
