This has got to be my favorite Circa cover ever. The leather is incredible! The finish is clean, soft, but sturdy and it feels as if it's already been conditioned! I needed a simple but indulgent way to protect my Circa sheets, and I've loved the aluminum Circa discs. They are by far my favorite. I recently made the switch from Franklin Covey planners, binders, covers, notebooks, notepads and accessories and am so happy with that decision. I get a much higher quality product and most of the time the prices are comparable. Sometimes I even get a better deal at Levenger. In the end, I have much more flexibility in the way I can use my products with the Circa system. I'll never go back to FC and it's so much easier for me to think and work with the Circa system.

If you haven't tried the Circa system yet, this beautiful cover should make you a believer. The pictures, as always, do not do it any justice. It's right up there with new handbag feeling, but you can actually use it for productivity so the cost is so much easier to justify. I sometimes wish I'd have personalized it, but I do like to keep my work items clean and simple and for that reason this is my go-to Circa cover for organizing my various work papers.

The size is perfect - generous enough for managing a calendar, journal, meeting notes, and some 3x5 task cards. The closure is a unique design - it's easy to use once you get the hang of it. My only concern is the fuzz developing on the elastic band. I really like elastic more than a leather tie or a snap closure, and I feel my contents are a little more secure than a fold-over cover, but I'm worried the elastic will get fuzzier with age. Hopefully being gentle and not allowing it to snag will keep it looking as perfect as the day it arrived.

Take the plunge and order this cover - you will not be disappointed if you're looking for something strong, luxurious and easy to use. It's true, it doesn't have any pockets and you can't take the rings out, but the product description makes this very clear. And that doesn't mean you can't add on pockets and storage features with Levenger's Circa accessories. For me, it's a no frills cover that looks great, works great, and doesn't add too much bulk or weight to my bag. Well done Levenger with a minimalistic cover that does what it says and will not disappoint.

This product is as nice as it looks in the photos. However, I expected and wanted the leather to be softer. The one concern is that the strap is a bit loose, I suppose to allow for additional sheets and accessories. It would be so much better with a pen loop and at least one slip pocket. In its current configuration, it won't work for me. Sadly, I am going to return it.

Nice But...

By

As always,. this Levenger product was top quality. Unfortunately, I did not note from the description nor the photo, that you could not bend the cover over so you could easily right on the left side (back) of pages. Because the leather cover does not lie flat, you could not write even with the pages simply turned unless you were half way through the stack.
I ended up returning this product.
I continue to purchase from Levenger as they always offer top quality products.

Great product

Long time user of the Levenger junior planner, but needed something larger for writing notes and sketching wireframes. Very happy with this portfolio. Both the folio and the note paper are excellent quality. Its comfortable to write on for long periods of time. The only challenge is that it won't fold over like some other Levenger portfolio models.

I hesitated to purchase this notebook, shouldn't have, worth every cent! I use for notes and will be punching heavy copy paper with circa punch for the best sketchbook ever. Aluminum discs and heavy leather cover will last forever. A notebook for notebook lovers like me!

Excellent Product

By

This notebook is everything I expected and hoped it would be. No hype here. Everything, from the excellent monogrammed cover to the quality paper and convenient dating system is superb. With all the great Circa accessories fully compatible, this notebook is as versatile as a notebook can be. I keep mine in my briefcase at all times. Wouldn't be without it. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Having gotten hooked on Levenger and the Circa products a while ago I've been wanting this classy cover for a while and I wasn't disappointed.
The most satisfying way to track time and projects.

Perfect!

This is the Circa Notebook for everyone who wants to use larger discs. Because the cover is integrated with the discs the user gets the function of a Circa notebook without the floppiness of the traditional Circa covers with the 1 inch discs. Plus the notebook is slim and lightweight so having the extra bulk because of the larger capacity discs is not a problem.

I have been thrilled with the performance thus far!
