11 Leather Passport Holders That Are Made to Last
A leather passport holder may seem like a luxury, but it can actually make your life easier. Who doesn’t like to keep all of their most important travel documents in one secure place?
As with travel wallets, a good passport holder isn’t hard to find. Luxury brands are producing their own stylish versions, and most come equipped with essentials like slots for your credit cards and boarding passes, as well.
Most frequent fliers prize style, durability, and quality, but perhaps you have other requirements. Do you want your case to hold all your IDs, or only your passport and some currency? You may also be looking for a passport holder you can personalize as a gift for your favorite traveler. Or perhaps one with a built-in location tracker, so you'll never have to worry about where it is on the morning of your flight.
With these ideas in mind, here are the best leather passport holders you can find on the market right now.
