Ambi Folio Letter
This was a purchase for my wife's new position. The craftsmanship and quality is outstanding. The customer service was excellent. I would highly recommend this product.

I have been looking for months for the perfect pad holder. Most looked cheap or did not have all the functionality I desired. When I did find one I was willing to settle for, it was too clunky. I wanted sleek, tidy, sharp, and one that had a side slot under the pad - that was key for me. Why? So I could tuck my planner's back cover into it and have a pad and calendar holder. This will not disappoint - gold star on all points, I could be happier by not having it zipper all around - offer one with a magnetic clasped flap...do that and I would be over the moon.

This is a very elegant solution for those who like to use both a tablet and a note pad. For project-based work, it's ideal. The craftsmanship and materials are first-rate.

As a lefty that moves from meeting to meeting as a normal course of my work, I enjoy having the understated quality and functional organization at my side. The ability to bring 3x5 cards to meetings has been a dream for tracking action items. I am also able to keep my planner in the zippered pocket and relevant files/handouts in the document pocket.

Love Levenger's - Customer since 1995
Bought this in purple & love the color! It is a royal purple, my favorite, so was not disappointed. The quality is as I expect from all of Levenger's products - EXCELLENT. I have several of Levenger's folios - used for specific things and picked this one up for my meetings because it has room for my iPad, iPhone, & business cards. PERFECT.
Keep up the good work Levenger's!

beautiful but not quite big enough
Arrived in a beautiful box, and indeed the folio is beautiful. I ordered red so I would be sure to find it easily in my office no matter where I put it. However, it became apparent that it was too small to contain the necessary file folder I keep with me, so I returned it the same day. Will keep looking for what will work for my purposes.

Love My New Folio
I did an extensive search for a nice, but not too expensive leather folio for business. I checked with the competition (Coach and Tumi specifically), and their products neither had the same desired design, or were priced in the range I was willing to pay. I'm so glad I came across the Ambi Folio. When I received it, I was even more glad that it was worth the price I paid. I felt I got an extremely high-quality product at a reasonable price. I especially love mine in purple! Thanks Levenger!

I love my pad holder. The color was beautiful, it is very easy to use and my name at the bottom just makes it even that more sophisticated and classy. I know I will be using this for years to come.

Only one problem: zipper
Bought this for carrying music to and from piano lesson once a week. Good quality leather, attractive, functional, but (as earlier reviews intimated) the zipper is coarse, cheap-looking, and occasionally difficult to operate. A few drops of oil on it helped, but if I were zipping this open/closed many times each day instead of just a few times each week, I'd find it annoying.

Good - but not quite Great
I like the portfolio. It's well constructed. its leather is soft, Its purple color is appealing - though not as dark as I'd prefer, and I'd like to see a blue option or two.
The reasons I say it's good, but not great, have to do with space and features:
1) The interior space is tight.
+ The sides of the largest pocket don't expand much, so I can't include extras as I have in other (less expensive) zipper folios - such as a small wallet, my cell phone, extra pens and such.
+ The interior zipper pocket has very little capacity - I'm not sure what you could put inside it other than paper.
+ The slide-in pockets have a very limited capacity - only a few pages fit into them, and they stick out so it's hard to zip the folio. For many days, this may be fine, but I can't expect the folio to accommodate my needs for multiple meetings without unloading it in between.
+ The business card holder is quite small and tight - holds only a very few business cards. You get the idea.
2) The location of the pen holders is pretty counterintuitive. I'm not sure why there's no pen loop in the middle or another offset vertical location near the pad. The two pen holders are at the top and bottom of the interior pocket. This probably seemed ingenious when it was being designed, but when you're in a meeting and actually using it, it's awkward to have to turn the folio to pull out the pen, which is in (surprise!) a tight space.
The reason I carry a zipper folio is so I can take things with me and not have to carry around extra bags and cases. While this is a good folio, it doesn't quite meet my needs for that. It is not even a tiny bit oversized, and maybe that's the difference. Other folios I've used have been just enough oversized to allow me to take some extra things along.
So while I would recommend this folio, I would let the buyer know that you can't expect to carry much inside of it.
