PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
When a briefcase is too much and a folio not quite enough

Pared-down but high-performance

We call this leather portfolio the Essential Briefolio for two reasons. First, it’s wonderfully uncomplicated, with just two pen loops sewn inside. And second, when you don’t want a briefcase but do need something bigger than a folio, this briefolio is the essential gear to grab.

iPads, too
Since the briefolio will hold letter-size files, it will also handily hold your iPad or other tablet, right in its case.
  • Accommodates letter-size files
  • Zips open on 2 sides
  • Interior compartment has 2 pen loops
  • Smooth, full-grain leather in black
  • Durable faille lining
  • Nickel hardware

I purchased the Tusting Briefbag from Levenger and this is a nice compliment to that bag. It is easy to carry and I use it when I need just a few items on an appointment. I added the monogram which is a nice feature and reasonably priced. I was amazed at how fast it arrived with the personalization. This great little item holds just the right amount of tools too. Circa notebook, ipad, a few other folders fit nicely into this rich leather folio.

I rec'd my purchase last week and was very excited until I tried to open it. The zipper was difficult to open and it took me several hours to get it closed again. Having had it monogrammed, it can't be returned. I was looking for a nice gift to give to my clients who use my agency, but I will have to look for another high end gift for my travelers. As for me, I'll now have to find a leather shop to help solve my problems if possible.

The smallest briefolio

By 

from Utah

Comments about Levenger Essential Briefolio®:

I got this for running around between meetings when I just need a notebook, my planner, phone, and maybe a few files. This does the job. The leather isn't the best quality -I can see why some say it seems like plastic. I have a black one. The zipper hasn't given me any trouble and I used this to hold a massive collection of documents for a project for a year. The leather does wear poorly. Where the internal levenger tag is, the corners caused the outside to rub and revealed a very light (seemed white) color under the black before I had owned this a year. Shoe polish helps a bit, but I wasn't expecting that kind of wear issue. I also own a bomber jacket briefolio (the big one with the divider). In comparison, the leather on it is much softer (floppies if not full, but seems nicer to the touch compared to this one). That one is essentially a small briefcase without a handle I don't use it as much because I just use my actual briefcase. I'm thinking that the Tusting briefolio may be my perfect in-between size since I do miss a key clip and small pocket for ink cartridges and such on this one, but having purchased two of these from Levenger, I'm holding off for a while before investing in a third.

Very disappointed

By 

from Havre de Grace, MD

Comments about Levenger Essential Briefolio®:

This is the first item that I am very disappointed with. And I have bought a lot from you over the years. This product is so flimsy and the leather looks like plastic. And the way the zipper does not work smoothly is nothing to rave about either. I expected only the best, and I did not get it this time.

High Quality Briefolio

By

Comments about Levenger Essential Briefolio®:

This product fills a need for me when I want something more than a folio but less than a briefcase. I find this to be made of high quality materials. The leather is nice and the zipper substantial.

I have been looking for a quality, handsome folio for some time. Not to carry a laptop in, but something to keep my documents orderly.

Excellent Purchase

Comments about Levenger Essential Briefolio®:

I was looking for something to bring home files and notebooks without having to lug home my entire laptop bag. This is everything I wanted, excellent quality and even with the initials it arrived within the week. Very pleased with this website and their products, already have a few more items on the way. Just wish I knew if there was something to polish /clean the bag with or if I even should?

Serves well

By

Comments about Levenger Essential Briefolio®:

Ordered with initials and hoped for the best after reading reviews. All reports about sticky zippers are true. But, I put some oil on the zipper, which helped and now the Briefolio serves its advertised purpose. After 6 weeks zipper and tab are still on. So far, it's a good value and I like it.

Comments about Levenger Essential Briefolio®:

I needed a folio that was large, durable, and satisfied my sense of aesthetics, and the Essential Briefolio is perfect. I carry a lot of loose sheet notes, and notebooks, for an ongoing manuscript, and wanted something stylish but functional. The large size fits all my papers, the heavy duty zipper is essential for stuffing the bag, and the leather quality is smooth without being too soft and flexible when being thrown hither and thither. Buy it, use it, abuse it. It's just what I wanted.

First purchase

By

Comments about Levenger Essential Briefolio®:

This was my first purchase from Levenger. While the quality is not so bad that I will return it, I was nonetheless disappointed. The zipper is very sticky and I think that I might throw it in the trash one day in frustration. Maybe it will loosen up, hopefully. Also the leather feels cheap and not soft at all. As a leather accessory addict, I will keep it but have bought much nicer goods from Leather and Luggage
