Compared to the "Pro" Circa Folio, this is far more supple (the Pro is very stiff) and streamlined. The fully zippered pocket is nice; the other pockets are not very secure because the cover is so soft. The leather is high quality and appears to be durable. But if you are looking for a Circa notebook with the least bulk, you'd be better off with the ones with simple plastic covers. This is basically one of those, slid into a leather cover.

Great, high-quality folio
I just started using this folio and love it. I ordered the tab dividers so I can create separate sections by project, client, etc. The leather is soft and high-quality, and the purple color looks great. I love the junior size and think it looks very professional but isn't cumbersome. Highly recommend!

This is great. The soft leather makes it easy to use. It's flexible and not stiff so it comfortable to use. I plan on order several more so my kids can have one. I think I may also order the bigger one for me as well to try it. The pages are a bit small for my needs.

Yes - it really is that nice
I've used the Circa products (as well as Levenger fountain pens) for years. I had been considering the Softolio for awhile and decided to treat myself. The leather is very soft and luxurious. It is a pleasure to walk into any meeting carrying my mandatory Circa organizer in the new Softolio. I highly recommend it.

I wanted something that I could carry easily from meeting to meeting that would store my weekly planner, a notepad, and a pen or two. I thought about the letter size softolio,but I already carry around a sizable laptop and the last thing I wanted was a binder to add to the load. I got the Circa Softfolio in jr size with some trepidation, thinking it may be too small for my needs and this has been the most expensive planner/folio I've ever purchased. What if I was disappointed? I had nothing to worry about. The jr softolio carries all I wanted plus some. It carries the weekly planner refills I also got from Levenger, my work and personal phones, business,cards, a sticky-notes pad, extra blank note paper for sketches that I hole-punched with Levenger's travel puncher, all with room to spare. Not disappointed and totally worth the money.

I have never taken the time before to write a review on anything I have purchased online, but i will make an exception for the Circa notebook system and this beautiful Circa Softolio. I have spent a lot of time researching the internet for a functional notebook system, and in my opinion the circa disc system is the best. I love the flexibility of it and I have also purchased a puncher so I can add sheets into the notebook that I have printet or received in the mail.
I bought the junior Circa Sofolio in purple and it is truly exquisite. The leather is really soft and covers my 1 inch discs notebook perfectly.
I often find myself inventing up new tasks and projects in my life only to get an excuse for buying more Levenger products. I have now three folios, the last one ordered just today. Can´t wait til I receive it!

I love my Softfolio!
I ordered this folio so I could have my work and personal calendars and projects all in one place. I chose this one because I could also have a zip pocket for a tablet or bulky papers. I immediately fell in love with the folio when it arrived. I loved the new leather smell and buttery texture. I've loaded it up with my Circa vertical weekly agenda, notes pages and pocket dividers for loose papers.
The only slight deduction I made was for functionality. My business cards don't stay in the small pockets when I take it on the go. I solved that with the dividers with pockets though!
This is a beautiful folio, stylish and useful at the same time. My boss admired mine so much she is ordering one for herself! I can now keep my personal and work life organized and take it on the go!

I just switched from conventional notebook planners to the Circa Softfolio in "Grape". I am vey pleased with the size and additional page options available for use in my folio.

beautifu present to myself
I got a new job - dream come true type job - and was excited for a fresh start. I have the circa bomber jacket notebook with tortoise ring already - and LOVE it - I've used the circa system for years. But I wanted something to signify a fresh start - so this is what I decided on.
I got the Softfolio in red and am so pleased with it. My iPad fits perfectly in the pocket, and the leather is soft and beautiful. I get comments on it all of the time. I got the 1" bright aluminum discs to use with it and it's one sharp looking system!
I will note that I inserted a stiff plastic sheet into the pocket to help it hold its shape when the iPad wasn't in there. But I love this thing and couldn't be happier!
