Misleading Brown Color
I just received this folio as a gift from my parents. We decided on the brown color because it looks like beautiful natural leather in the photograph, but I was very disappointed when I opened up the box and saw the actual color - it's not like the picture at all, much more of a dyed dark brown, which makes it look much cheaper than it actually is. Had I known, I would have definitely opted for the black, but unfortunately it's monogramed so I can't return it. I'm sure it will function very well, but I am disappointed and really wish the picture had accurately portrayed what the color looks like. Would not recommend only based on the color.

A great folio
This is a great folio. The leather is very soft and pliable, but the stiff backing on the included Freeload note pad makes it easy to write on, even without a table or desk. The stitching is flawless. The pocket in the inner cover holds an iPad or iPad mini very well. It's not cheap, but this is a case of getting what you pay for. It's a top-quality folio that will last for many years. I would happily buy it again.

I have many Circa notebooks from Levenger, but this was my first venture in to a soft leather notebook. It arrived just in time for a professional conference I was attending, and along with the new Java pen, this was my first use. As always, it arrived beautifully packaged, and as expected, the quality is outstanding. Soft in hand, but I can tell is durable, and will last many years, only getting better with use. The paper is wonderful, pockets for cards, and zip pocket for iPad are nice features, as well as the pen slot. Very pleased with this purchase.

Beautiful & Professional
I bought this as a gift for my husband. He is so picky about many things and I almost didn't buy this for him but it came up on sale and I went for it. It was delivered without incident and on time. The packaging is nice and thoughtful. The portfolio is soft and pliable. The magnet works well and does work when you fold the cover behind your paper. The spine of the portfolio is about 1-2 inches wide which is great if you want to put many files inside and still allow for the magnet to connect. Since this purchase I've bought 2 other items because I've been so impressed.

8 years still like new
This is hands down the best folio I've ever owned. The only other one I would consider purchasing is the Circa version. I've had other products and none even come close. The pockets serve well and it is flexible enough to hold a bundle to being very slim.
I've had this same folio for eight years and it is still like new. The leather is everything you want it to be and it looks great for business use. With my Cross Townsend Rollerball it is my everyday companion.

Best of All Worlds
I have now purchased three of these because they are the best folio design and quality in the industry. The leather is of the highest quality, and the soft, pliable front flap makes it easy to use either laid out flat or wrapped behind. The magnetic tab can be used to secure the flap when folded behind, which is cleaver.
The hardboard backing of the levenger note pads makes the back feel firm. The multiple open sleeves and the zipper closure on the inside of the front flap makes the product extremely useful for all kinds of items that can be carried with the pad. I love the quality and look, and have received comments from everyone who sees it.
I have given two as gifts and will probably purchase more as this is an ideal professional business gift option.

Levenger has the best leather folios out there. The pockets inside are convenient and useful. Looks classy and professional, the leather is very high quality. The magnetic closure is a nice feature, but the flap sometimes interferes with taking notes. All in all, a wonderful product.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this portfolio. Folks, don't get the cheesy ones you see in office supply stores - this product will keep you looking better than everyone else. Fantastic quality, slim design, fits in my bag easily with laptop. Worth every penny.

Incredible Value & Quality
I absolutely love my softfolio portfolio. I bought it a few years ago and it still looks new. I've used it for meetings, interviews, and lately just when I need to carry a notebook with pens and other small items. The quality is top-notch and everyone who sees the folio comments on its beauty. It really makes a statement but as it has become an extension of myself I am always surprised when someone compliments me on the cover. I went with the black leather without personalization so as to avoid attracting too much attention to the folio, but it's still such a good looking piece of leather that it really doesn't matter which color you choose or wether or not your personalize. People will notice it because it's gorgeous. It's also very well made, offers a lot of organization with pockets, zippers, and pen loops and I have to say after taking the plunge it was money well spent and I have no regrets. I think everyone should own at least one Levenger Softfolio! I carry two small parker pens and a Levenger wired notebook in mine at all times and it is very slim and lightweight this way. Also makes a lovely gift as it comes in a box with a Levenger microfiber wrap.
