Most travelers can relate to the airport grind and the need to have your travel documents at the ready, so many companies have created handy passport holders. These days, most passport holders can also store credit cards, cash and other small items and come with RFID (radio-frequency identification) blocking material to prevent digital theft. While some passport holders are worn around the neck, others fit around the waist or are similar to a traditional wallet. Need help deciding which one you should spring for? Take a look at our eight best passport holders to make travel more convenient.

Adventure travelers will appreciate the rugged design of the “neck wallet passport holder” by Wink’s Travel, which is a useful accessory when exploring a new area. In addition to going through the airport, the pouch is great for day hikes, concerts or sightseeing and is made of waterproof nylon (although it is not submersible). To protect from digital pickpockets, two layers of RFID blocking material are embedded in the case. There are several pockets to hold a smartphone, passport, chap stick, headphones, cash or credit cards, and the breathable mesh on the back makes for a comfortable fit. At nine inches long, the pouch is a tad larger than some of the competitors.Continue to 5 of 8 below.
