Orbitkey has had quite a lot of successful crowdfunding campaigns under its belt. We’ve even reviewed some of them, including the Orbitkey Key Organiser, Orbitkey Nest, and Orbitkey Desk Mat – all of which impressed us greatly. And now, the same company is at it again with their latest offering: the Orbitkey ID Card Holder.

Overview

ID cardholders aren’t exactly new. Just make a quick search online and you’ll find tons of them for sale. Many of them are cheap too like the Teskyer Leather Badge Holder and the Specialist ID Vertical Top Load Badge Holder. Now, the problem with many card-carry solutions is that they don’t last very long. To address this, Orbitkey did what they are good at and combined quality materials with fine leather. The result – a highly durable and sleek-looking card holder that you can use every single day.

Orbitkey ID Card Holder allows you quick access to your ID and other cards. So you don’t have to rummage your bag or pocket and touch your other belongings just to find the card you need. This saves you time and reduces the spread of germs.

On the downside, however, Orbitkey  ID Card Holder has a retail price of US$45 for the basic version and US$60 for the Pro. You’ll need to pay more for the lanyard too. At this price point, Orbitkey is one of the most expensive cardholders you’ll find, but also one of the best.

Features

Tap and Go

With the Orbitkey ID Card Holder, you can easily scan your ID or public transport card. So you can just hang it on your neck or belt, tap it, and go.

Custom-Made Retractor

One of the things we love about the Orbitkey ID Card Holder is its custom-made retractor. Unlike standard retractors, it is quieter and more durable. It’s so well-built that you don’t have to be afraid to pull it in any direction you want. This feature also allows you quick access to your ID or public transport cards, so you don’t have to search through your things every time you need a card.

Privacy

This cardholder has a built-in privacy feature that allows it to sit within a cavity in the retractor casing, preventing it to flip around. So when you leave the office, you don’t have to remove the Orbitkey ID Card Holder System to hide your identity. Simply pull it down and flip it around to keep your details private.

Dual Orientation

Orbitkey’s ID Card Holder Pro has two leather loops, allowing it to support cards in both landscape and portrait orientations.

The main difference between the Orbitkey ID Card Holder basic and pro model is their thickness. Since the pro version is thicker, it is capable of holding more. So you can use it for your access card, 2 additional cards (transit/business/transaction cards), and small items like a key, emergency cash, or coins. On the other hand, the basic version can only fit your access card and 1 additional card.

Orbitkey ID Card Holder Pro also has more features, including RFID protection for your additional cards, interference-free scanning if you are carrying multiple RFID cards, and dual orientation.

Orbitkey ID Card Holder System: Final Thoughts

If you are looking for an ID card holder that can last longer and provide you the most convenience, Orbitkey is one of your best options. While it isn’t the most affordable card carry solution, its quality materials, functionality, and professional design make this well worth it. Plus, considering Orbitkey’s track record on the crowdfunding scene, it’s a product that can surely deliver.
