REVIEW – Lewis N. Clark RFID Neck Stash
Lewis N. Clark have attempted to improve on previous designs with their RFID protected Neck Stash. This current version having a clear display panel at the front for ID cards and also a velcro fastener to keep your documents from falling out.
How Does the Lewis N. Clark RFID Neck Stash Stack Up?
At first glance, the neck stash ticks all the boxes for a wary traveler – if wearing your travel wallet under your shirt and around your neck is a comfortable proposition for you. The wallet comes with two zips on either side which fits both passports/credit cards as well as currency. The top has a velcro fastener and your passport fits easily inside however this means that your boarding passes will need to be folded to close it properly.
Unfortunately, the zips that run down each side of the wallet get stuck a little easily and have been known to break after regular use. The straps are super easy to adjust and if you really want, you can tuck the wallet into your waistband as well as secure it around your neck. The stitching connecting the strap to the top of the wallet however looks a little flimsy and might not be the most secure connection for all of your most important documents.
Look and Feel
The size of the wallet is borderline for me, it’s a relatively light-weight pouch and doesn’t feel oversized but if I was of smaller stature I could imagine it becoming slightly uncomfortable. The clear ID panel is a nice touch but there is nothing to fasten the card inside so there is a little potential for it to slip out.
It looks pretty good, certainly nothing fancy and I think in this case you get what you pay for.

- Lots of pockets
- Clear viewing panel for ID
- Comfortable to wear
- RFID protection questionable
- Stitching and Zippers low quality
- Boarding passes dont fit without folding
It's certainly not perfect but for the price, Lewis N. Clark have delivered a serviceable, fully featured neck stash. Questionable zip and stitching quality drag the score down a bit for this one but for light use it's not a bad little wallet.
