Ambi Folio Letter
I Ambi'n Love with my Folio Poem
I searched high and low
For a professional folio
To hold a pad and notes
With a zipper so I could totes
All my business needs
I'm a lefty and you get me
With your red leather perfect-y.

Beautiful but not quite made for lefties.
I just got this so I cannot make a statement on longevity. I can only confirm that this is a beautiful padfolio. It looks very classy and professional, suitable for men and women. Has just the right size, large enough to hold a reasonable amount of stuff but still easy to carry. The leather is beautiful and not too thin. The overall quality appears very good. I
But here is what really bugs me: I got this because it is made for both left- and right handed people. In other words, this is the only folio that Levenger makes that is suitable for left-handed people. I was happy to find one for lefties only to find out that it is still intended for right-handed people. Sure, you can orient the pad in either direction but when lefties use this pad one of the pockets is open on the bottom. I will still be able to use this but I was hoping for something that would be perfect for lefties.

Fits MacBook Air 13" Perfectly
I've had this folio for years...pretty sure it is an Ambi...and always appreciated the styling and the great feel in the hand that it provided. I was doing a lot of consulting and used it daily. A few years back I stopped seeing clients and put the folio on the shelf.
Last year I picked up a MacBook Air 13" laptop and spent a month or so looking for a nice case to carry it in. I'm traveling these days and the Air goes everywhere with me. I wanted a case that was stylish, functional, and different than what everyone else carried. I couldn't find anything that I liked!
One day I was pulling a reference off my shelf, and there was the Ambi. Would the MacBook fit? It does, perfectly. I did take the zipper pull off of the inside compartment so that it wouldn't scratch the laptop, and of course the paper pad came out, too. There's room for an iPad in the inside compartment as well as a handful of papers to work on, and the small loops on the sides hold a stylus and a pen.
I think that people are often surprised when I open up this thin, elegant folio and out pops a laptop! I'm thrilled to be using the folio again.

Exactly what I wanted/needed!
I am an assistant professor in the Humanities and Teacher Education and I just received my new saddle portfolio. It is absolutely perfect for my daily teaching load, meetings, and conference presentations. I am so happy to have such a nice, professional looking portfolio that is neither bulky nor cheap. I ordered the saddle because, although the black would be more professional, it is not so boring! The size is perfect and will keep me even more organized and because it is not too bulky, I can't get overloaded. A note on the leather, it is spectacularly supple. It is thick, but feels soft as chamois. I am so 100% satisfied.

I just purchased this portfolio and like the punch the red leather gives to a classic style. I like using something that is a little different that the pack and this certainly fits the bill. I hesitated to get a zipped folio thinking it would be too bulky and cumbersome. It really isn't and allows storage and safety of papers, etc. because it has the gusseted compartment and zippered binding. It is flexible enough to fold in the center when there isn't space to use it open. I am very pleased with my purchase. I downgraded the function because I don't like the pen holders. They are ok, but I just zip my pen in the folder instead of inserting it in the slot.

Beautiful folio, but does no one make these in legal size any more? Thanks.

The Genuine Article
I gifted this to my GC who is a lefty who raves about this product. Six months later, I got one for myself and couldn't be happier. I actually can throw in a slimmer circa notebook along with a few files...not the biggest but that isn't what I was looking for. I use a briefolio for more capacity. I am typically carrying my laptop on my back and this ambi folio and the briefolio to work...all in all a light and efficient way to go.
Another great product that I look forward to using for a long time.

Best Folio Ever
I bought this folio 5 years ago. I used it almost daily in my busy life as a Supervisor of Patient Care. It is still in great condition and now is passed on to my daughter who has had her eyes on it for a long time. One of the many great products from Levenger.

This is beautiful and functional. Another winner from Levenger. I bought the red color and I am so pleased with it. The leather is soft and I like the zipper to keep things from falling out of it. It has everything I need in one place. It is packaged beautifully and it is a must for anyone who likes to keep things organized.

Superb! Great functionality
This portfolio is great for everyday use- it's lightweight and easy to flip backwards and store folders/files. Most importantly- it's perfect if you are a lefty!! Lovin it! I got it in red and highly recommend it. It's so soft -- but made so well. It will last- that's for sure!
