Bomber Jacket International Pocket Briefcase
Business Travel Assistant
The business world is full of electronic gadgets designed to be convenient and promote productivity but there are times, especially when traveling, when I need to write down a phone number, create a follow-up list, or document a great idea. Most of those times come quickly and by the time I power-up and type in my user id and password the moment of inspiration had passed. That was until I got armed with the Bomber Jacket International Pocket Briefcase.
Besides being at the ready for taking notes it also has handy pockets for my hotel, rental, and airline cards along with space for business cards and spare 3X5 notecards. I use the billfold compartment as a place to stash my travel expense receipts.
The Bomber Jacket International Pocket Briefcase is very stylish and helps promote a professional and organized image. Best of all, it helps make my business travel just a little bit easier and I can't really say that about any of the electronic devices I have to cart along with me.

Almost Perfect. Almost.
I've never spent this much on a wallet before, but I love the functionality of the Pocket Briefcase design. And I expect it will last a decade at a minimum, so that makes it a worthwhile purchase for me. My only quibble, and it's a minor one: The clear ID window on my wallet is not quite centered, so one edge does not lie flat when my ID and credit cards are in place. And adjustment of a millimeter there would make this wallet 100% perfect.

It was all I've come to expect from Levenger
Have used the pocket briefcase for a couple of years and recently my dog decided to eat mine. I guess that soft leather was just to tempting. So I decided to upgrade to the Bomber Jacket International and it's perfect.

Bomber jacket pocket briefcase
I have used the pocket briefcase as a wallet for 10 years. I bought the bomber jacket version 5 years ago and it's amazing. It looks exactly as new. I'm thinking of buying another one to have in case they stop making them.

I wish I loved this, and I'm partly to blame
This is a great product, and if it meets your needs, grab it at once. The picture doesn't do it justice, but also doesn't really show the thickness of the pocket briefcase. Had I known the outer pocket (actually two pockets, one for currency, and another the size of the wallet itself) was as cavernous as it is, I probably wouldn't have gotten this. I was looking for something a little sleeker.
If they made this product withoutt the outer pocket, you would still have room for an ID, credit cards, and 3 internal pockets. And I would have ordered that one. And be thrilled.
The packaging is magnificent, and the delivery time was incredibly fast. I would return it for a slimmer wallet, except for the fact that they monogrammed it (which really makes it look incredible.
If you ever make one this without the outer pockets, I'll be in line to purchase it. and based on this item, I will be purchasing more items from Levenger...I will just research a little more next time to make sure it completely fills my needs.

I am a high tech person with the need for low tech note taking. This pocket briefcase is wonderful. Great quality, love the leather (bomber jacket rocks! I have three pieces), and this feels great in hand. I've had my passport in it while traveling and I even slide my iPhone into the back pocket when walking from meeting to meeting. I keep it in my purse and it is really easy to pull out and jot down a note or check my list. Highly recommend it!

A highly useful mobile solution
I've been a fan of Levenger's 3x5 card products for years, and the Bomber Jacket International Pocket Briefcase is no exception. Mine is over a year old and gets very heavy use, from work, to travel, to wilderness excursions, yet looks as though it just came out the box yesterday. I love that it doubles as a passport case and document holder while in the airport, where having everything on hand is essential.
That being said, this is a functional product, albeit slightly bulky in many situations. Its design make it suitable for anyone needing a portable office. Yet because of its thickness it does not fit comfortably in all of my pockets. For those seeking maximum portability, I'd recommend the basic Pocket Briefcase as it is much thinner.

Pen slips out
Be carefull if you hold the Levenger Pocketini pen in the slot provided... it will slip out (I've lost one already. If your pen has a clip, it shouldn't matter (maybe the Pocketini needs one). Other than that, a great product.

Well It's About Time
I've been a "coat" wallet user for over 30 years.. and have always carried note pads or cards separately, as I am a list maker, note jotter. My admiration for this wallet goes quite far.
Reasons I like it:
1. Love the Bomber Leather look
2. Love the Bomber Leather ruggedness... Only tall wallet I've ever had that's lasted this well over 1 1/2 years of daily use.
3. Obviously I now carry my note cards with me
4. Just right with the amount of pockets
5. Get a lot of compliments from colleagues and intrigued persons
There's something nice about pulling out a leather wallet and taking a quick note, or writing something down for someone and handing it to them. Granted I have an iPhone so you ask why I don't just use that? Because everyone else DOES.
Just like my fountain pens.... Having a bit of class always leaves a lasting impression.

"Mission Critical Item!"
This is exactly what its billled to be - a pocket briefcase. I can keep my business cards, 3x5 note cards, a pen, my passport, my hotel room key, and a few credit cards handy - and it fits easily into a suit jacket pocket. All I need for a full day of meetings on the go. Can't live without it.
