International Pocket Briefcase with Pocketini Pen
An excellent product
I bought this wallet more than a year ago; despite a lot of rough treatment, it still looks beautiful. The larger of the currency pocket holds my passport conveniently (which I use on a weekly basis), the side pockets hold all my cards well (I've never had any fall out), and the 3x5 cards are incredibly handy (I've even substituted those for business cards in a pinch). My only suggestion is that Levenger not force customers to buy the pen with the wallet. I've kept a cheap and rather large Sharpie in the pen slot contentedly for most of the time I've had the wallet. Otherwise, well done!

greatest wallet, needs minor tweaking
Love this item. It's been all over the world and still looks great after many a year of service.
Two tweaks that I wish would be considered. First, the sleave for the pen stretches over time (it is made of leather, after all) which allows the pen to fall out quite often. It only there was a clasp or other method to keep the pen where it belongs --
Second tweak -- the credit card side of the wallet has a flap that is open top and side. Unfortunately, sometimes you may slide a card in there, only to have them fall out when you open the wallet. I cured this by going to my local shoe maker and he stitched a leather strap across the top of the flap and onto the wallet body so that the cards couldn't slide out the side, but keeping the "mouth" large enough to allow credit cards to slide in.
I'd buy another in a heartbeat if these things were addressed!

Great Wallet but I often misplace pen.
I have owned this Wallet for just short of a year. The leather looks like new and has worn beautifully. This is a piece for the minimalist as adding more than ID, Corp Card and personal card for travel along with 3x5 cards makes it a little bulky. The only downside is the center slit for the pen does not securely hold the pen and I routinely find my pen in the car seat and have had it fly out when pulling th wallet out of a jacket pocket too quickly. I would highly recommend the wallet but will replace the pen with the Walletini Pen with the clip to hold it in the wallet better when I finally lose the Pocketini pen.

My favorite Levenger purchase!
I tend to carry designer bags, but the only wallet I will carry is this one! Love the 3x5 card holder - so useful. And the size and quantity of other pockets is perfect - enough, but not too much. My only disappointment is that I am ready to order a new one and the only colors now offered are brown and black. I have been enjoying a gorgeous red version for years.

I've been turned onto Levenger products for the past 2 years and must admit, I don't like Levenger at all...I love it!
I first used this item as an everyday wallet and found that the slim form was great and the shallow currency pocket was great for carrying cash. The deep pocket could accommodate all my receipts and business cards collected on the way. The leather, as always, smooth and perfect to the touch, and aging well.
I then purchased a Bomber jacket tri-fold for everyday use and now I use the International Pocket Breifcase as intended; it's a great travel companion holding my passport and all my travel related IDs. I travel a lot and this is one of my favorite purchases from Levenger.
Great gift idea too!

love the wallet..the pen not so much
Got the item and I admit I was very pleased with the quality of it, I also liked the pocketini pen very much, but because it has no clip I got to enjoy it for all of 3 days before it fell out and was lost. And as much as I liked the pen I am not willing to put out another $26.00 to replace it. I wish now I had bought it with out the pen and used a pen I already own.

Now, if only there was a version for 3x5 cards on both sides (no space wasted for business cards), it would be a total winner with me. Yes, I do mean 2 writing spaces, not one for writing and one for storage.

One of the best gifts I have ever been given...
I received this wonderful pocket briefcase as a thank you gift for an independent tech job I did. As an IT/Networking technician working for a broadcast facility under the operations group, I am constantly running around, being intercepted by people in the hallway needing assistance, and having issues occur so fast that you barely have tome to blink. This handy little organizer is perfect for me, as we have to log all the items we take care of, I can write quick notes on each item and then enter them into our log files later.

Abused but Still Good
After about 10 years of abuse, my wallet is in pretty good shape. The see-through license window cracked some time ago, which is my only complaint, and what's prompting me to buy a new one. It's more of a business wallet than a "go anywhere" everyday wallet because it can't carry a whole lot. But how much do you really need to carry with you anyway?
