Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Searching for the best EMF shielding phone pouch to protect yourself from your phone’s harmful EMF emissions? You’re at the right place. In this post, we’ll compare EMF shielding phone pouches from SYB (Shield Your Body) and DefenderShield—two of the top brands in the global EMF shielding industry.

This post will tell you everything you need to know about EMF shielding phone pouches from both brands, so you can choose the right one based on your needs.

But before we dive deep into this comparison, let’s look at why you need an EMF shielding phone pouch in the first place.

Cell Phone EMFs & Health

Cell phones don’t only emit one type of radiation. There’s cellular, WiFi, Bluetooth – and there’s also ELF or extremely low-frequency radiation that comes from your phone’s internal circuitry.

Per thousands of research studies on this subject, all these EMFs combined can induce severe damage to your physical and mental well-being.

They say prolonged exposure to EMFs from your phone can cause problems ranging from minor sleep disorders to chronic diseases like cancer.

Check out our EMF Health Effects page for more information.

Luckily, there are ways you can reduce your EMF exposure from your phone. All you need to do is make some changes to your lifestyle.

You can start by following what I call the “Two Key Rules of EMF Protection.”

This rule simply asks you to minimize your tech use and maximize your distance from EMF sources.

So, by using your phone only when necessary, and keeping your phone at a certain distance, even while carrying it, you can significantly reduce your EMF exposure.

Learn more about the two key rules of EMF protection in my post, “What is the Best EMF Protection? Hint: It’s Free. And You Can Start Right Now.

The downside is that the second rule isn’t as easy to follow as rule #1.

Sometimes you have to carry your phone in your pocket. And you have to keep your phone close to your body, especially while traveling. This is where lab-tested EMF shielding products like the 5G phone pouch come in.

Benefits of Getting a 5G Phone Pouch

5G Phone Pouches from brands like SYB and DefenderShield will protect you from your phone’s harmful EMF emissions while still allowing your phone to function.

Phone pouches from both brands feature robust EMF shielding materials on their rear side. So, when you put your phone inside the pouch, it will deflect the phone’s EMF in the opposite direction without interfering with your phone’s reception and battery life. More on that later.

Before we move forward with the phone pouch comparison, let’s look closer at both companies.

Shield Your Body

A Deeper Comparison

Let’s look deeper at the features of SYB’s and DS’s phone pouches.


Shield Your BodyDefenderShield
  Shield Your Body’s SaferBody™ technology is tested at independent laboratories to ensure 99% effectiveness in shielding harmful EMFs from devices in the radiofrequency and microwave range.  

The SYB Phone Pouch is designed using the same technology. It contains polyester fabric woven with a nickel/cobalt alloy to deflect EMFs from your phone in the opposite direction.  

And since the introduction of 5G, we have made our pouch more powerful to effectively shield EMFs from 5G sources as well.
DefenderShield’s Ultra Armor™ EMF Shielding technology uses composite metal materials to shield EMF in a wide frequency range.  

DS’s phone pouch is designed with the same technology to block 99% of wireless (RF) radiation from reaching your body. And it’s laboratory tested to shield EMFs from 5G sources.


Phone Pouches from both SYB and DefenderShield feature a highly affordable pricing structure.

The SYB Phone Pouch is $30, regardless of whether you choose the large size or the extra-large.

DefenderShield’s small phone pouch costs $34.99, and the large size costs $36.99.


Shield Your BodyDefenderShield
  SYB’s Phone Pouch comes in six colors: Black, Purple, Blue, Yellow, Green, and Orange. This means you can pick the one that matches your style. The design is unisex, so it’s great for men, women, kids, and adults.  DS’s Phone Pouch is stylish black, featuring a unisex design—great for everyone.  

Ease of Use

Both the SYB and DS phone pouch shields on one side only, so you can stay protected from your phone’s EMF emissions while your phone still stays functioning.

Simply slide your phone into the pouch and then put it in your pocket, ensuring that the rear side of the pouch faces your body. And that’s it: You’re protected.

Besides this:

  The SYB Phone Pouch also features a belt hoop. So, if you don’t feel like carrying your phone in your pocket, you can easily carry it on your hip.  DefenderShield’s Phone Pouch comes with a strap. So, if you don’t feel like carrying it in your pocket, you can simply clip the straps and hang your phone around your neck.

Introducing the SYB Pouch Deluxe

So, what if you have multiple phones or want to carry more than one item in your pouch?

We have a solution. Introducing the SYB Pouch Deluxe.

With a convenient and highly functional design, the SYB Pouch Deluxe makes it safer for you to carry your phone and other small devices.

It’s laboratory tested to shield 99% of the harmful radiation coming from your devices, including 5G. And just like the phone pouch, it only shields on one side, so it won’t harm your device’s reception or battery life.

It also comes with tons of features:

  • Two separate compartments.
  • Each compartment features a zipper closure.
  • The top flap closes with magnets.
  • A pen holder.

Since it measures 7.5” tall and 5.3” wide, you can fit many small items in your Pouch Deluxe.

The SYB Pouch Deluxe is made from durable and resilient 100% polyester. And just like the phone pouch, the rear is lined with a polyester fabric woven with a nickel/cobalt alloy to effectively shield EMF from all your small gadgets.

To add a cherry on top, you can carry your SYB Pouch Deluxe in three different ways. It has:

  • Removable shoulder strap to use as a cross-body bag
  • Hoop for carrying on a belt (with convenient Velcro for easy use)
  • And removable carabiner for carrying on belt hoop

Check out the SYB Pouch Deluxe at the SYB store.

So how do you choose?

The ever-increasing EMF pollution in our surroundings is causing a massive deterioration in public health. And by simply reducing your EMF exposure from your phone, you can avoid many of these EMF-induced health problems.

So, regardless of where you get your phone pouch from, be sure to get one. It will really help you mitigate your EMF exposure. As I already mentioned, this post is just to give you all the facts, so you can choose based on your preference and requirements.

Final Thoughts

The health issues that EMF brings are only part of the problem. Experts say that prolonged technology use affects us physically, mentally, emotionally, and psychologically.

So, what can you do? It’s not like you can get rid of technology altogether and keep living a smooth life.

Well, the good news is, you don’t have to. You just need to find the right balance.
