Oh, For the Old One!
In 2004, I purchased the version f this wallet then available at the Chicago store. It was soft red leather and the card holder snapped in. I carried it faithfully until I purchased one.
Sadly, things have change although the design is close. The leather is stiff compared to my previous one and my cards are forever coming loose since the magnets are too weak to hold it.
I kept it but why did you change such a great item?

My road scholar is a true workhorse. It keeps me compliant with my company's 'visible ID' policy, while keeping track of my cell phones, IDs/cards, some note cards, and pen. The one enhancement that would make it perfect is a dual pull-tab zipper so that I can open it in either direction.

The perfect travel companion. Tucks neatly into a small space but houses very travel document and then some.the leather is sot and supple, makes a statement without saying a word. Great product !

Was better in the past
I have used this wallet for years. So many people ask me from where it was purchased. Great for traveling - even airport security personnel comment on the great style and ease of providing identification. A little big for a woman's purse but I just buy a bigger purse. Great organization. Only quality issue I have ever had in the past is with the zipper - gives out after a few years and have had to replace. I also wished a few more colours were available. However, the new version with the magnets instead of the snaps to keep the inner change pocket/credit card sleeve in place just does not work - does not remain in place and is cumbersome. Even with a sale price available, I am for the first time having second thoughts re: purchasing again.

I just got it and just love it and I use it as a wallet. I have purchased several as a gift it has never disappointed, everyone loved it.
I recommend it as a wallet you can carry everything in it. I was impressed with all the different compartments to hold everything you want and then some.

After traveling many times over the last few years I noticed I was always struggling with where to keep my boarding passes and tickets when around the airport. Sometimes you need them right at hand and other times you're sitting around for hours waiting for your plane, so where to put them? My carry on didn't work because they get all wrinkled, torn and lost.
I knew if anyone could save me it would be a Levenger product and this was it! It's not too big or bulky to carry around the airport. It carries all your travel docs and all your wallet type cards like IDs and credit cards.
I was amazed at the thoughtfulness of the design when I got to the hotel and realized I didn't want to carry this thing around any more and BOOM! the magnetized wallet snaps right out into a perfect pocket sized wallet with all my essentials. Can this company get any better?

Absolutely the best!
I bought this case quite a few years ago, (pea green!) & I can't say enough about the ease & design of it. It holds all important papers & the snap out wallet fits easily in my pocket for an added security. It's gone around the world & I'm going to have to replace it soon & I'm asking you to please make it in other colors. Blue? Red? Green? Please consider something other than black. Nothing like a little pizzazz while traveling, yes?

This was a gift for a young man about to head out on his first overseas trip. I wanted something that would hold the necessaries, zip for security, and made of leather. The Road Scholar is all that and more. Really good quality, well organized. I wasn't expecting the magnetic closers on the wallet and holding it in the case - really slick! Now I want one for me. :)

Love, love, love it ;))
I LOVE this travel wallet so much that I use it for everyday use in addition to travelling.
I have purchased four so far. A black on I use everyday the red one I am hoarding and only use for travel. I have also bought two others for special people. The one I just received is for a friend who lives in Cuba. It is for his graduation from his Master's program. Shhhhh....don't tell him; it's a surprise ;)
I love every single feature of this wallet. The only thing I have a problem with is I haven't been able to zip it for several months because I have too many receipts inside. I am going to purge them again and then I am going to toss my older Departure Case in my purse (again) and put my receipts in there. I found that especially helpful for Christmas receipts ;)
Bring back red!!!!!!!!
New Levenger color should be lime green! ;))

Exquisite and functional wallet!
I have had a tan colored version of this wallet since 2004 and after 10 years am replacing it with the black version. This is the only wallet anywhere that has so many holders for creadit cards, receipts, notes and other essentials. It would be nice if it came in other colors than black - if I had a choice, how about red!
