Circa Pro Folio
I have used Circa for years and I have constantly been trying to balance the advantage of size and note taking area when it comes to what I carry in my briefcase during travel. I think I have finally found that balance...nicely sized, remarkably flexible and professional enough for any environment.

Unrivaled organization exquisitely done!
Absolutely gorgeous leather (with truly fine workmanship) on which I have been complimented. The Levenger system gives me exactly what I need: flexibility and usability. Tried electronic organization, but it never really clicked for me (pun intended...sorry...) I feel so much more organized again. Thank you!

Made a great product even better

I purchased this to wrap around a Circa notebook with 1.5 in disks; it fits well. Fine quality workmanship and detailing. I especially like the pen loop, which is leather with an elastic band to accommodate larger size pens (like a highlighter, which is what I use mine for. Nice attention to detail.

This piece was purchased as a potential gift for a group. It is a great piece and I love the size.

Nicest Folio I own
About three months ago (from the time I am writing this review) I decided I wanted a professional folio for note taking at school. I wanted one that wasn't a traditional binder because the little metal clasps on those tend to fail on me quickly. I did my research and learned about the Levenger discs and was instantly impressed by how they work.
I was a little turned off by the price but the reviews I read were extremely flattering. I was hard pressed to find someone who didn't like whatever they'd ordered from Levenger, so I took a chance and ordered myself this folio for Christmas.
I didn't pay for express shipping so it didn't arrive until well after the holidays, but it was most definitely worth the wait. I swear I spent half the day looking out my window for the FedEx guy to arrive just so I could get my folio and see if it lived up to all the amazing reviews I had read. When it finally arrived and I opened the box I was impressed to find it wrapped in a gift box. I really shouldn't have been, because Levenger flat out says it comes in a complimentary gift box, but I was impressed anyway.
Not only was it wrapped in a soft, olive green gift box, but it was swaddled in a protective cloth. I could smell the scent of leather before I even opened the cloth surrounding my new folio. I had splurged and gone for my full name to be personalized on it and was pleasantly surprised at how well it was done. At this point, I should have realized that the other reviews I'd read were correct and that Levenger lives up to their promise of quality but every time I pull it out of my purse, I am impressed all over again.
I've never owned a folio this luxurious before. I get a bit of a thrill each time I pull this out of my purse, even if I'm not planning on using it at that moment and I just want to hold it or smell it and breathe in the luxury.
While, in my opinion, the shipping cost is a little high, I definitely would recommend this product to anyone else who is looking for a professional, well made, leather folio and I have plans to purchase a letter sized one for my birthday this March. I am completely satisfied with my purchase and totally in love with Levenger.

I LOVE THIS NOTEBOOK! The quality is amazing. It was exactly what I was looking for. Just enough pockets on the inside. Levenger customer service is the best; I initially ordered the notebook version, but called to order this instead. No problems at all. This really is the best company to do business with.

While this is certainly not a low-cost item, the quality justifies the price. It's full-grain leather without even a tiny blemish or flaw. The stitching is absolutely perfect. It even smells like the interior of a luxury car.
I bought the junior-size, and, of course, it perfectly accommodates a junior-size Circa notebook. One such, with ½ inch discs, is included with the folio. I replaced it with a ¾ inch disc notebook, and it would clearly work well with 1 inch discs, too. The product information says it will go to 1 ½ inch discs, but I'm not so sure it would close well with them.
My bottom line: The folio works perfectly to accommodate the versatile Circa notebook system, and is practically oozes quality. I'd happily buy it again if I had to. However, I think it will last so long, I won't have to...

Function and Elegance in a Beautfil Package
I purchased this Folio in December of 2013 and I have kept it by my side ever since! If you are looking for a stylish and functional Folio for you Circa Notebook, look no further.
The leather of this Folio is extremely smooth with a touch of gloss. I purchased mine in classic black letter size and opted for full name engraving on this Folio and I am extremely satisfied. While it is starting to show wear from minor abrasions from every day use, (and the casually tossing it in the back seat of it car) there is no change in how study this Folio is. The little scuffs here and there seem to add a touch of character to the leather. The stitching is superb and I have not noticed any stitches coming loose or any edges of the leather to begin to fray from wear.
The ID card holder in the front is a great addition as it helps with any sales or business meetings to have your business card shown and easily accessible. The document pouch is streamlined to prevent bulkiness while flexible enough to fit several papers under the flap securely.
I keep my Chesterton Espresso Convertible Rollerball in the pen loop and I plan to change my plain black Circa disks to a larger 1" Kyoto for a touch of color. This item is highly recommended and if you are looking for a classy way to keep your Circa Notebook or for that hard to find gift for even the most organized business professional!
