It's totally worth the money and basically theft proof. I've got three of their pieces and I take them with me every time I leave the cou try.
when traveling internationally (and in the USA) I always keep a separate government ID in my briefcase and in my money clip. Same with cash. at any given time I have 3-5 cnotes in a place in my carry bag (unless my wife was broke).
I also make color copies of my passport and visa's and but them in different bags.
I've had the case where my DL broke in half, and TSA wouldn't take it, so I had my global entry card in my separate bag that I used to get on the plane. I had AMEX cancel my card in the middle of a trip due to a breach. Only problem was I was traveling at the time. I used the cash for a dinner with a customer that night.
My daughter was coming home for Thanksgiving and forgot her ID. I had taken her to England before and I had stuck a copy of her passport in her bag. She had never taken it out and TSA asked her 3 questions and let her through.
Once you prepare for losing your stuff or being robbed, you just don't worry about it anymore.
