International Pocket Briefcase with Pocketini Pen
I bought one of these years ago and loved it. It was made of soft glove-like leather. After the dog destroyed it I ordered a new one. Very disappointed in the quality of the leather - whereas the old one was soft and you could get a good grip on it, this leather is dull-looking yet slippery, and feels cheap. Wish I could find an old one to buy.

My Second International Pocket !
I carry my black one with me everyday because I like to be able to take notes - I am never without a pen with this! I just purchased a second one in saddle to use as my travel wallet. It fits my passport, a couple credit cards, business cards, as well as euros and dollars. Wonderful. Everything nice and near and organized, and still the ability to take quick notes on the fly. Love it!

Very good quality, lacking some card slots.
The construction and materials used are of very good quality. The money slots are great and very useful. There are two pockets provided: one deeper for international notes, and one shallower that fits US dollars perfectly.
My only complaint is that there is only two card slots to put credit cards in. I wish there were a few more and a separate place for business card storage.
Note taking abilities
Only two card slots
No separate place for business cards
Pen slips from hand

An excellent product
I bought this wallet more than a year ago; despite a lot of rough treatment, it still looks beautiful. The larger of the currency pocket holds my passport conveniently (which I use on a weekly basis), the side pockets hold all my cards well (I've never had any fall out), and the 3x5 cards are incredibly handy (I've even substituted those for business cards in a pinch). My only suggestion is that Levenger not force customers to buy the pen with the wallet. I've kept a cheap and rather large Sharpie in the pen slot contentedly for most of the time I've had the wallet. Otherwise, well done!

greatest wallet, needs minor tweaking
Love this item. It's been all over the world and still looks great after many a year of service.
Two tweaks that I wish would be considered. First, the sleave for the pen stretches over time (it is made of leather, after all) which allows the pen to fall out quite often. It only there was a clasp or other method to keep the pen where it belongs --
Second tweak -- the credit card side of the wallet has a flap that is open top and side. Unfortunately, sometimes you may slide a card in there, only to have them fall out when you open the wallet. I cured this by going to my local shoe maker and he stitched a leather strap across the top of the flap and onto the wallet body so that the cards couldn't slide out the side, but keeping the "mouth" large enough to allow credit cards to slide in.
I'd buy another in a heartbeat if these things were addressed!

Great Wallet but I often misplace pen.
I have owned this Wallet for just short of a year. The leather looks like new and has worn beautifully. This is a piece for the minimalist as adding more than ID, Corp Card and personal card for travel along with 3x5 cards makes it a little bulky. The only downside is the center slit for the pen does not securely hold the pen and I routinely find my pen in the car seat and have had it fly out when pulling th wallet out of a jacket pocket too quickly. I would highly recommend the wallet but will replace the pen with the Walletini Pen with the clip to hold it in the wallet better when I finally lose the Pocketini pen.

My favorite Levenger purchase!
I tend to carry designer bags, but the only wallet I will carry is this one! Love the 3x5 card holder - so useful. And the size and quantity of other pockets is perfect - enough, but not too much. My only disappointment is that I am ready to order a new one and the only colors now offered are brown and black. I have been enjoying a gorgeous red version for years.

I've been turned onto Levenger products for the past 2 years and must admit, I don't like Levenger at all...I love it!
I first used this item as an everyday wallet and found that the slim form was great and the shallow currency pocket was great for carrying cash. The deep pocket could accommodate all my receipts and business cards collected on the way. The leather, as always, smooth and perfect to the touch, and aging well.
I then purchased a Bomber jacket tri-fold for everyday use and now I use the International Pocket Breifcase as intended; it's a great travel companion holding my passport and all my travel related IDs. I travel a lot and this is one of my favorite purchases from Levenger.
Great gift idea too!

love the wallet..the pen not so much
Got the item and I admit I was very pleased with the quality of it, I also liked the pocketini pen very much, but because it has no clip I got to enjoy it for all of 3 days before it fell out and was lost. And as much as I liked the pen I am not willing to put out another $26.00 to replace it. I wish now I had bought it with out the pen and used a pen I already own.

Now, if only there was a version for 3x5 cards on both sides (no space wasted for business cards), it would be a total winner with me. Yes, I do mean 2 writing spaces, not one for writing and one for storage.
