The Lewis N. Clark RFID Neck Stash brings travel security to a whole different level, with its RFID-blocking security. Millions of credit cards, debit cards and passports issued since 2006 are embedded with a radio frequency identification chip (RFID) that contains personal information. RFID chips are also used in hotel keys, electronic gate/door keycards, and government, military and port of entry ID cards. The RFID chip is always on, making consumers more susceptible to identity theft. The RFID Neck Stash blocks RFID signals to help keep your personal information private.

I've heard that this has a Prop 65 sticker, that it contains a known carcinogen under California Laws. Does anyone know what exactly is the carcinogen is? What chemical/chemical compound? If i'm wearing this product, I'd really like to know what I'm exposing myself to - what kind of dangers.

Is this a washable product, my husband owns one, but it has gotten pretty dirty in just a little time. There were no care instructions with it. Can it be washed?
Asked on 8/11/2013 by wolfmom from Orange, TX

Would you please explain what is meant by RFID. How is this made differently from other neck stashes? (There isn't any mention of any type of barrier used.) Also, is the back waterproof or will the contents inside get wet if there is a lot of sweating?
Thanks for your time.

RFID is Radio Frequency Identification.
is the use of a wireless non-contact system that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object, for the purposes of automatic identification and tracking. Some tags require no battery and are powered and read at short ranges via magnetic fields (electromagnetic induction). Others use a local power source and emit radio waves (electromagnetic radiation at radio frequencies). The tag contains electronically stored information which may be read from up to several meters away. Unlike a bar code, the tag does not need to be within line of sight of the reader and may be embedded in the tracked object.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio-frequency_identification
Since the radio frequency is very weak meant to be received by an RFID reader close to the neck stash. There is a metalic barrier that prevents the broadcast of RFID inabled data carried in this neck stash.
