The new Adafruit Wallet- Airport Issues?

by easternstargeek on Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:41 am

I just love the new stainless mesh wallet that you carry, and I'm strongly considering getting one, but I have a question:

Has this ever caused you a hassle at airport security checkpoints?

The bigger airports have the full-body scanners, so you have to empty your pockets completely, anyway, but smaller regional airports will let you walk through with non-metallic items, such as conventional wallets. I'm not a huge fan of leaving my wallet to be handled by TSA, so I was just wondering...

...OTOH, the wallet is so cool, the hassle may still be worth it!

i've traveled with mine, around the world, for 2 years and never had a single issue. i always put anything from my pockets in my bag before going through the scanners and metal detectors.
