Bomber Jacket Circa Pro Folio
I've been a longtime customer of Levenger and have many of their products. Most all of them exceed my expectations of quality an value for the price. However, this one did not. As with the other reviewer, after a few weeks of 'light' use it will warp.
Additionally, the inside front pocket lacks any stiffness at all to hold more than one or two sheets of paper. And the interior fabric pulls away.
Bottom line is I would not reccomend this product at all. I will stick with the Circa Foldover notebooks as they are much more ridgid and sturdier.

Comfortable out of the box
This review covers both letter and junior size pro folios. I started with the letter size pro folio, which had a defined purpose that kept it on my desk or traveling in my computer bag. The letter size is especially helpful since it takes a "normal" size piece of paper with no fuss. I have never tried standing it up and tucking it away on a bookshelf to notice if there are any issues. Frankly, it looks too good to put away. It does lack some stiffness seen in other products, however I like the softer feel. It is more comfortable right out of the box: you will feel like you've owned it for years. My experience with the letter size influenced my decision to purchase the junior size. The smaller size is less practical for work/home travel arrangement set up for the letter size, however it is perfect for taking quick notes, organizing bills, birthday cards to send, etc. It stays on my desk at home full time, keeping things collected in one location. An added benefit to the Pro Folio, both sizes, is the ability to use up to 1 1/2" discs. The flexibility really adds to the usefulness.

Bomber Jacket letter size
I was very pleased when this product arrived and I pulled it out of the nice box. The leather is beautiful and soft to the touch. I put it on my shelf and decided to use it to hold refill paper until I used up my other Levenger folio. Unfortunately, after a week, I pulled it off of the shelf to find that it was very warped. The solid board under the leather is apparently too thin. I don't think I will even be able to use this as it will not lay flat now with the board front and back being curved in the middle. In fairness to Levenger, this is the first of their products that I have been disappointed in. If you are looking to buy one of these I would recommend the junior size or zipper version of the junior size as the letter size will warp!
