Pacsafe is known for gear that keeps your valuables safe. To date, we’ve tested a range of offerings from the brand, all of which add extra security, but sometimes we’ve found that it negatively affects usage. We’re excited to try the Pacsafe RFIDsafe Compact Travel Organizer and see how it operates while on a trip. Let’s dive in!

The Rundown

The exterior of the travel organizer is 750D recycled polyester. The materials are water-resistant and PFC-free, which is an excellent shout. Nobody wants their money or passport to get soggy, and perfluorochemicals may cause cancer and liver damage. We’re off to a good start, Pacsafe!

At the time of writing, there are Black and Tan colorways available. Both look sleek—it’s just a question of which goes better with your style. The black goes with anything, while the tan feels more formal.

Depending on the size of your hands, you may be unable to hold this travel organizer comfortably. It’ll fit in medium and large slings, but you might push your luck with a smaller one.

The Pacsafe logo is on the front of the wallet. It’s the same color as the primary pack material, so nothing stands out too much. We dig how minimal it is, but some folks might think even this logo is excessive.

The zipper is unbranded, but we haven’t had any issues opening or closing this travel organizer. The track runs around three of the four sides, so you can open the organizer quite wide.

There’s a small metal D-ring on the bottom of the track. You can attach a carabiner that Pacsafe sells separately here or hook the organizer to another carabiner. It’s a small inclusion with a lot of benefits, making it easier to stow it in your daypack or travel backpack without worrying about moving around too much.

On the backside, there’s a zippered external compartment. It has a gusset on one side to extend slightly with larger gear, like keys, an AirTag, or similarly sized items. However, flat items still do best here. It’s a solid spot to stow cash while waiting in line at a street food vendor. Or, throw your passport and travel documents inside while waiting in line at the airport. It’s quick to access and doesn’t get in the way.

The interior is broken up into two sides, but some features span both sides.

There are two liner pockets that you can access from the top of the organizer. They traverse the entire footprint, so there’s a lot of space to stow gear here. You can fit extra passports, cash, or other flat items here. If you choose to toss in some money, it slides to the bottom. It may be great from a security standpoint, but grabbing the money you want is problematic because it’s so far down the pocket. Most of the time, you have to pull out all the cash, pick out what you want, then replace it, which isn’t as great, security-wise, as initially thought.

Down the center, between the two sides, is a pen holder. It doesn’t come with one, but you can put just about any size pen here. Smaller models do well, but we fit just about any writing utensil we tried here (within reason).

The left side of the organizer has a single liner pocket. We used this as our daily driver for passport storage. It’s easy to get to, and you can barely see it whenever you open the organizer, so it isn’t in your face, and you get peace of mind whenever you open it.

There’s more going on over on the right side. The top half has liner pockets designed to stow credit cards and similarly-sized items, like transit passes. There are five slots, although you can fit more than one card in each. We don’t need this many slots when we travel; however, they don’t get in the way, so we don’t mind that Pacsafe includes so many. It’s better to have extras and not need them than not have enough when you do, right?

Below that, there’s a zippered compartment with a rigid mesh window so you can see inside the pocket. At first glance, this seems like a spot to stow your ID. However, the zipper’s design prevents you from tucking an ID inside. Pacsafe wants you to store your coin change here, which is a good shout, but it feels like a miss that you can’t put identification here, too.

Behind all of the organization we’ve gone over on the right side is another liner pocket. You access it from the left, or the center of the organizer, and can stow another passport-sized piece of gear here. We could fit four passports inside this organizer without too much fuss. You won’t be able to keep as much other gear with that many passports. Still, if you’re traveling with the family, the Pacsafe RFIDsafe Compact Travel Organizer is a great way to keep everyone’s travel documents safe.

Quick Comparison

Although the two have very different offerings, the Pacsafe RFIDsafe Compact Travel Organizer and the Bellroy Travel Wallet can stow similar gear.

Pacsafe RFIDsafe Compact Travel Organizer Comparison
Pacsafe RFIDsafe Compact Travel Organizer | Different styles but a similar amount of gear storage.

The Bellroy offering looks more professional with its leather exterior, and the Pacsafe feels more dad-friendly. We don’t say that as a negative; the dad vibe is an aesthetic we all should strive to achieve at some point in our lives. However, when choosing a travel wallet, it might not be for you.

The Bellroy Travel Wallet is large but designed like a standard billfold, whereas the Pacsafe Organizer is a zip-around style wallet. They both work well while traveling, but the Pacsafe offers more security.

Both have ample space to stow your credit cards, two slots for cash, and a place for a pen, albeit in different spots. The Bellroy comes with a writing implement, whose home is better integrated into the wallet, but it’s a mini model, which isn’t as easy to use.

Both offerings do a great job of organizing your gear while traveling, no matter where you end up. However, their aesthetics are vastly different. Considering they handle cash, passports, and travel accessories similarly, you must choose based on vibes, not performance. Who doesn’t dig that?
