RFID/NFC (radio-frequency identification/near-field communication) readers can now be used to steal your personal information, including credit-card data, right from your pocket.

More than 10 million identities are digitally pick pocketed every year, and these devices are among the most common tools criminals use.

It’s estimated that by 2015, more than 70% of all credit cards will be vulnerable to such attacks. One day you’re ordering dinner in a restaurant, the next day tech-savvy thieves are buying a 300” TV and a year’s supply of queso dip with your credit-card information!

While you could defeat this sort of thievery by carrying around wads of cash or bartering livestock, Betabrand have worked with Norton to develop another, more practical solution: a high-tech version of our popular READY Jeans that prevents thieves from stealing your info!

Betabrand have partnered with with global information-protection authority Norton to create the world’s first RFID-blocking jeans to develop the world’s first RFID-block jeans and blazer. The READY Active Jeans protected by Norton have two pockets lined with special RFID-blocking fabric, which shields your credit cards from scanning devices.

They feature two magic pockets lined with special RFID-blocking fabric, which shields credit cards from scanning devices.

Pretty safe to say these will be some of the most technologically advanced jeans ever. They’re made in San Francisco, with high-performance stretch denim milled in the USA.
