    This is overkill, just put a small square of aluminum foil in your wallet and you'll block RFID. Its a scare tactic in the end besides if you put your credit cards on top of each other in a wallet the signal will be unintelligible.

    ^ It's a lot easier to just opt for a $2.88 wallet... not an unreasonable price if a hard case is OK.

    Plus while stacking cards makes it harder to skim them, it's not impossible and I'm sure hackers are working on this every day so it could end up even worse carrying multiple RFID chipped cards so that you have them stacked without other measures, because then if they succeed you could have multiple cards compromised.

    Most bifold wallets have a double bill pocket, make a quadfolded piece of foil and put it closest to the outside of your comfy leather wallet, then when your wallet it folded and in your pocket, case, or bag, it has a thick layer of foil wrapped around the outside of all your stuff.

    ^ While I am too lazy to do the math, at a given frequency there is a maximum gap (or in this case a long slit) between the two layers of foil acceptable to block transmission. It could work but only if the gap is small enough.
