REVIEW – Boundless RFID Neck Pouch Travel WalletBest value
The Boundless RFID Neck Pouch is a good sized, durable neck wallet with plenty of room. It does look a little familiar though…
How Does the Boundless RFID Neck Pouch Stack Up?
Within minutes of looking at the Boundless RFID Neck Pouch, it started to remind me of something. Ah, that’s right! It is almost an exact copy of the IGOGEER deluxe passport neck wallet. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that manufacturers have used the same wallet design and layout. Whether or not IGOGEER designed and developed this particular wallet or it’s just a drop shipping template of sorts is to be discovered.
Regardless, there are some slight design changes, both functional and aesthetic. Apart from obvious differences like the base colour, the Boundless RFID Neck Pouch is also a little bit cheaper. Let’s have a look.
Look and Feel
Much like the IGOGEER, the Boundless RFID Neck Pouch has 5 pockets in total. 3 zippered pockets gives plenty of room to secure belongings with one of the pockets residing on the top flap. There are 4 slots for credit cards of which the bottom two are very snug and a little difficult to maneuver. Lastly, there are two sleeves which aren’t enclosed, one horizontal (the biggest) and one vertical.
The Boundless RFID Neck Pouch comes in the one colour, a bluey gray and is made of nylon. Although they don’t specify, it looks to me like standard 210D ripstop. It’s quite soft to the touch while being very sturdy and hard to tear. Turning the wallet around reveals a couple of belt loops if you’re not into wearing it around your neck. They appear slightly wider then the IGOGEER loops.
The strap is actually quite comfortable and is potentially made from a different material than the IGOGEER. It’s definitely long enough to accommodate just about any height. The wallet itself lends itself to a shorter, stouter design than many wallets. Even still, it’s tall enough to fit larger smart phones and multiple passports.
The top of the wallet is secured by an angled velcro flap. Like any product that combines velcro with cotton(the strap) there are bound to be issues. The strap getting caught on velcro and eventually fraying is a problem I’m all too familiar with. The zips look to be fairly standard and I would bet they don’t stand up to consistent and heavy use. The velcro is also a thicker strip on the Boundless RFID Neck Pouch compared to the IGOGEER which would increase these problems.
The only other noticeable differences between the two is the rings that fasten the strap on the IGOGEER are a bit nicer than the fabric used on the Boundless RFID Neck Pouch. Also the IGOGEER has a nicer overall finish to the product, with the polyester lining. The wallets have virtually the same dimensions, layout and materials with the IGOGEER using slightly more expensive components from what I can see.
You also won’t be getting a lifetime warranty with the Boundless. They only offer a 30 day money back guarantee which I know from experience is usually a waste of time as people buy travel wallets before they travel.

My conclusion is that the Boundless RFID neck pouch is neither. It's virtually indistinguishable in a lot of ways from the IGOGEER deluxe neck stash at almost half the price. The finishing and materials seem a bit cheaper but hell - so does the price. I really like the IGOGEER and I guess I like the Boundless too. I've always liked the pocket and zip locations and they are both solid travel wallets.
