I discovered Levenger 13 years ago. I switched from another day planner system to Levenger's Circa...and never looked back! I didn't need this Circa Softolio. However, I wanted to change from the more masculine look of the black Levenger Circa Pro Zip Folio I've used for years.
I saw this soft leather folio and knew this was what I was looking for. I ordered this in Grape, and love the rich color...definitely in the purple family, but the depth of color combined with the softness gives it the elegance I was looking for! It is light weight, so it doesn't weigh my bag down and easily fits in my Levenger Majorca. It easily folds back, so I find it easy to write on. As with all Circa notebooks, removing and moving pages is pure simplicity. Levenger NEVER disappoints! Thank you

I LOVE my new Junior Softfolio. I have had many Levenger Circa binders and this by far is my most favorite. It is lightweight and so soft. I love the fact that it holds almost everything I need, I do wish the Zipper compartment was able to hold my IPAD mini as this is what my true need was...but when needed I can slide it into one of the open pockets...not a great idea for travel though as I can just see it sliding out. I am waiting to purchase the Letter size as soon as it goes on sale. I need one for me and one for my husband. A little to pricey compared to some others without a sale! But well worth the wait!!

Exactly what I was looking for. A place for everything.

I bought this in grape for my Circa smartPlanner Master Agenda and it's perfect! Soft and rich feeling with more than enough room for my kindle and note cards.

Office Products Goldilocks Says "Just Right"
My padfolio is my mobile office, so it has to be just right. This one is an office product fairy tale come true.
Everything about this product is spot on. The leather is so nice, I want to by 10 more of these padfolios and line my office chair with them. Just the right number of pockets, and arranged so you can easily find what you need. Two (two!!) well placed pen holders. Well constructed zip pocket for your tablet.
After reading a couple of reviews that were hating on the monogram, I almost didn't get mine personalized. I'm glad I did... the monogram is in a elegant looking font and looks very professional.
The awesomeness of this product cannot be overstated.

Very functional and nice leather
I am new to Levenger but have been very pleased with this purchase. The leather is very soft and it is a very functional item. I often put my macbook air in between the leaves to protect it while carrying.

Is there a higher rating than 5 stars ?!?!?!
I, too, did not "need" this product, but just had to have it.
I am in love with almost every single Levenger product I have ever purchased., no doubt about that.
I wanted a nice writing pad that could sit on my desk and not simply be an ugly plain paper tablet. My tablet needed a "home"
I have had products in this leather before and knew I could trust the product. I ordered this in bright RED, had my initials on the front. It sits on my desk all day. If I need to take simple notes or be ready for some serious writing, it is right there. It is light weight, fits in my bag easy and is SO easy write on ! I just cannot say enough about this gorgeous softfolio !!!! it is so easy to remove pages and file them in your desk if need be . Levenger ` you have NEVER EVER let me down, and as today is my birthday, I am even looing at other products. LOVE LOVE LOVE your products

Much appreciated gift
I gave this softolio to my business partner, and he really likes it. The only negative is the monogram. Don't waste your money on it. The leather is too soft, apparently, because the monogram just looks like a blur. If I hadn't already given it to him for his birthday, I would have returned it for one without a monogram.

Not only is this item perfectly functional, it is so good looking. The leather is so soft and beautiful. Even with a full notebook, it is very lightweight. I am so glad I made this wise purchase.

I'll start by admitting I absolutely did not need this. I have and love a zipped Bomber jacket folio that I use to hold Circa punched documents and reference materials as well as a calendar and notes. But I found that the zippers are a little uncomfortable when taking notes and I started carrying a naked Circa plastic notebook with me as well. This new folio fills a need I didn't know I had - a simple, no obstructions, folds back on itself (if nothing much is in the pocket) so you can write while holding it in your lap or sitting at a crowded conference table' cover for a notebook that still offers a safe place to slip small things that would get lost in an open folio (like my iPhone or business cards). I wish the zipped pocket was a little larger as it will not fit an iPad mini. As someone else noted, you can slip a mini into one of the unzipped pockets on the inside cover but I would only do that under very controlled circumstances where I was sure I wouldn't let it slip out. The leather looks and feels great. I went with the grape color even though I'm not really a purple fan and I like it - it's closer to a burgandy/brown than anything I would call purple. It looks refined and elegant while still having a little bit of a distinctive edge. The pen loops work very well for me - my mechanical pencil keeps the folio closed when I'm not using it and is the first thing I need when I use it so having it serve as the 'lock' makes sense. I didn't need this folio but I'm really enjoying it (well, at least as much as one can enjoy an object you need at work).
