International Phone Pocket Briefcase
iMy Phone falls out 3x a day!
I love Levenger and own many of their products; however, this piece is a disappointment and not up to Levenger's usual perfection. The primary flaw is that the netted sleeve doesn't hold the iPhone 5 in place. I suppose it would work better if my iPhone had a big fat rubber skin on it, but then why would I need to buy this leather case? Needless to say, the ineffectivity of the netted sleeve means that my iPhone falls out at least 3x a day. The leather also feels cheap and looks somewhat tacky--like my Dad's wallet in the 1970s. In addition, the placement of the pen holder means that any pen with a pocket clip will tend to scratch the iPhone's screen unless you turn it around to face backward. But what would be the point of that? I was too cheap to purchase the Pocketini pen with this, so it might not have the same problem.
Honestly, if I had to do it again, I would just go with the International Briefcase and buy a regular iPhone skin from Apple.

Small and functional
Very slim folio. I have an iPhone 5 inside a thin leather case that fits in the pocket just fine. (A large phone or the same phone in a larger case should fit well too. I can see that an iPhone not inside a case could slip out easily as the iPhone 4-5s all are slippery without cases.)
Things I like: perfect pocket for my phone; the mesh is nice--and the length of the pocket is good.
Plenty of space for cards. Nice bonus are the 2 length-wise pockets in the rear—one shallow, the other deep-- that can fit extra cards, currency, receipts, etc.
Pen pocket--definitely better than a loop. I have no problems with a pen falling out; I bought the L-Tech Plus Ballpoint Twist with Stylus--diameter and length are PERFECT in this pocket.
Only one nit-pick is that I don’t particularly care for how the fabric directly behind the phone wrinkles.
Overall pleased with this purchase!

As a former college instructor, business owner, and creative writer (poet), I could not live without a Levenger Pocket Briefcase. It is for me like Thomas Jefferson's "commonplace" notebooks, where the finest of thoughts,
ideas, and dreams stop to rest ... so as not to be too easily or too soon lost to rain or tears!

Best Product Ever
I really love this product. It secures my phone and also creates a space for me to jot notes, keep my business cards or my ID for quick access.

Not too secure for iPhone
Like the general appearance and pockets of the case. Small case with a lot of room, and pen holder is a plus. But, even with a protective case on my iPhone5, it has nearly fallen out of the elasticized pocket. The Pocket Briefcase would no doubt work better for a larger phone. Also, the leather section behind the phone will not lie flat. I've had the case for several months and thought the leather might flatten with time and use, but no such luck. Overall I like the case, or at least the concept. Do think it could be made a little better, and really, it is too large for an iPhone unless the user is VERY careful.

Unique iPhone case
The leather feels just great, and the design is really outstanding. The slim form factor of the iPhone makes it a little slippery in the case, but that is minor compared to the quality of the item. This is my fourth iPhone case, and the only one I am happy to pick up and use.

Great product and a great value. I was looking for something for note-taking and also found a phone case. It's a little snug with Motorola RAZR and a skin case but it works and fits in sport coat / blazer pocket ready for a meeting. Wish I had personalized it with initials.

very nice case
Excellent small case. I had to take my iPhone 5 out of its protective case to fit in the mesh pocket but small price to pay. Fits in breast pocket of sportcoat.

Very handy item
We purchased this for a traveling friend. I didn't see the item as I had it sent directly to him, bur he was really pleased with it and likes it a lot.

Great Corporate Gift Idea!
First time customer-ordered this as employee holiday gifts. Monogramming was a very nice touch. The quality is top notch, and the features/functionality are awesome, especially for business travel. Excellent gift!
