Leather passport and ID holder from Up & Away, US$83 / CDN$109 (based on today’s currency conversion rate from HKD).
Totally customizable to suit your colour and pattern preferences, with seven beautiful colours of leather and three different fabric interior patterns. I went with the hot pink with polka-dot lining and it looked EXACTLY like I thought it would.
Very high-quality, designed and manufactured with a lot of care. It’s a truly beautiful piece that looks and feels amazing in the hand.
For being so compact, the Up & Away passport holder holds a fair bit. The next-biggest size holds five passports and still closes shut — perfect for bigger families.
Enough pockets to hold essentials like a driver’s license, insurance card, bank card, credit card, frequent flier card, bording pass and a small amount of paper currency.
Although the convenience of being able to carry several passports at once — all with the person’s photo page ready to go — is fantastic, we found that customs and flight agents wanted us to remove them every time. The elastic strings make this process more time-consuming than straight-up pockets, both for the getting in and the getting out.
There’s nowhere to carry loose change, which I’m used to with my other passport holder and am finding difficult to do without.
I prefer to carry my boarding pass without bending it, which you must do with the Up & Away passport holder.
It would be great to add personalization to the customization process — like an embossed, stamped set of initials, for example.
