I purchased the soft folio in grape. The color is exquisite as is the overall feel of the folio. As described, the leather is soft and the folio is malleable. Putting the iPad Air in the zippered compartment is great for walking to meetings, etc. However, the small size of the iPad compared to the pocket may cause some folks to think it is awkward to hold. I like it very much and think it will hold up for a lot of usage and it is a pleasure to use. I would prefer to have a magnetic tab closure rather than the pen holder (my pen is too large for it).

This was a purchase for myself - a rare treat!
It is amazingly soft leather but will hold up to everyday use. Has plenty of storage space in addition to holding my circa notebook. Love It.

I wasn't prepared to love this folio as much as I do. I bought it with the only thought of having a nice Nook case with a notebook. (for note taking/study). I didn't have any clue about Levenger's Circa system (I have always used Filofax in the past). As I used this folio, the more potential I realized it had. Next thing I knew, I had purchased the smartPlanner (love!), apps, dividers etc. to create the ultimate organizer/tablet/notebook/diary thingy that works great for my lifestyle. Form, function and possibilities all make for the BEST folio I have ever had. In fact, I am waiting for my next Circa supplies order to arrive today. Can't wait!!
Regarding another reviewer who mentioned her (?) iPad not fitting in the zip pocket easily. I concur...even with my Nook (junior size folio), I have to slip it in and out on an angle. Not a big thing but a "thing" to get used to.
BTW, the "grape" is a very deep purple/eggplant color. Very elegant and versatile.

I have a number of levenger products and this is one of my favorites. I stay organized and have fun doing it! And it looks good too!

I feel bad for ruining the perfect rating but...
I am incredibly disappointed in my Softolio. I had such high hopes for this. It is a beautiful color, but I was expecting butter soft leather rather than the slightly pebbled feel. My biggest surprise is the size. I ordered the letter size and expected it to be the same size as the Circa notebook--a sleek look; it is about 1/2" longer in length. I'm returning, it so i did not remove the Circa from the packaging to determine if there is any extra material on the sides though I don't think there is. There is nothing wrong with it per se, just not what I was looking for. I love Cira, so I'll try again.

Incredible quality, look, and function. I love my new softfolio. I'm using it daily and am thankful that I got it. It's really versatile and seems like it will last me for many years. Probably not my last purchase at Levenger!

This portfolio book totally exceeded what I thought I was going to get. It is so classy looking and looks very expensive. I will be impressing folks with this folio! Cant wait to buy more stuff from levenger!!! The eggplant color is so nice too...a nice switch from black!

Best folio ever
I've been looking for the perfect folio that a) looks classy, b) is high quality, and c) keeps everything organized. This softfolio is it! It's beautiful and really helps me keep everything right where I need it. Plus, it's roomy ... I have the Circa notebook that came with it divided into sections using the vibrant folders I purchased from Levenger and I can keep my iPad in the zippered pocket AND stash a file folder I might have to take to meeting inside and it still doesn't look stuffed. Awesome.

Love it and Not love it
I love the cover. It is soft, pliable and fits my preferred planner as if it was made for it The inside pockets are a good sixe to accommodate different types of paper and business cards. The downside is in its closure ability. I use pencils, not pens. What I did was remove one of the loops entirely, removed part of the second loop and then sewed the elastic of both together to form a flap. I took sticky Velcro to put on the new flap and the cover for a closure ability. Works great now. And oh, by the way, the color purple was my choice and it is a nice deep color.

Great feel and function
Soft to the touch and accommodates the inch disks well. If you want some additional structure, add a clear plastic cover into the zippered area.
