This review covers both letter and junior size pro folios. I started with the letter size pro folio, which had a defined purpose that kept it on my desk or traveling in my computer bag. The letter size is especially helpful since it takes a "normal" size piece of paper with no fuss. I have never tried standing it up and tucking it away on a bookshelf to notice if there are any issues. Frankly, it looks too good to put away. It does lack some stiffness seen in other products, however I like the softer feel. It is more comfortable right out of the box: you will feel like you've owned it for years. My experience with the letter size influenced my decision to purchase the junior size. The smaller size is less practical for work/home travel arrangement set up for the letter size, however it is perfect for taking quick notes, organizing bills, birthday cards to send, etc. It stays on my desk at home full time, keeping things collected in one location. An added benefit to the Pro Folio, both sizes, is the ability to use up to 1 1/2" discs. The flexibility really adds to the usefulness.

I bought this for work to use to keep track of project notes and documents on various projects. I like the Circa concept and I already owned the bomber jacket letter folio, so thought this would be the perfect compliment. As others have mentioned, the construction has changed, the boardstock seems lighter than the folio, which was purchased several years ago. The leather is ok, but the fabric lining seems to be thinner and a lower quality. Worse part was the monogram, which was poorly done. As others mentioned, the first couple letters were barely there, only the last had a partially deep imprint. The tool also seemed to smooth some of the leather pattern out around the monogram too.

Comments about Levenger Bomber Jacket Circa Pro Folio:
The folder has the attributes required including a holder for a pen or pencil. However, although the leather may be desirable for many, a microfiber or other lightweight cloth option could make the overall weight in a briefcase or backpack lighter to carry.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent, well-made product.I like to record notes with a fountain pen and the quality of the paper is excellent. I also like to make a digital record of my notes, which is greatly facilitated by circa design - remove for scanning, then archive.
Love the Junior size!
Very happy with the Bomber Jacket Circa Pro Folio in the Junior size. The leather is beautiful--the Bomber Jacket line is a favorite--and the folio is the perfect size to keep all of my notes and lists together. Am ordering the Circa daily calendar in the junior size to add to the folio and make it even more functional. Monogram is the perfect finishing touch to this beautiful product.

Perfect beauty and function. Great that it holds larger discs.

I have a number of Levenger items, nearly all of them are of the Bomber collection. As with all the others this one does not have any flaws that I can see. Soft and subtle, rich but not showy, this CIRCA folio is perhaps the best I have purchased. If I have a complaint, it is being discontinued too soon. I have found this item useful to carry with and available to jot down ideas, or take notes as necessary. A premium selection.

I've purchased several Levenger folios, and this is the one I am using the most. I love the Bomber Jacket look...it is professional and elegant. It goes everywhere with me, along with my iPad. Adding to the great outside look is the plaid lining and pen holder for my Levenger fountain pen! I am retired, and own my own internet business, and keeping this with me when i stop at Starbucks makes me feel younger and still 'with it!"

I've been a longtime customer of Levenger and have many of their products. Most all of them exceed my expectations of quality an value for the price. However, this one did not. As with the other reviewer, after a few weeks of 'light' use it will warp.Additionally, the inside front pocket lacks any stiffness at all to hold more than one or two sheets of paper. And the interior fabric pulls away.Bottom line is I would not reccomend this product at all. I will stick with the Circa Foldover notebooks as they are much more ridgid and sturdier.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bomber Jacket letter size
from Kansas City, MO
I was very pleased when this product arrived and I pulled it out of the nice box. The leather is beautiful and soft to the touch. I put it on my shelf and decided to use it to hold refill paper until I used up my other Levenger folio. Unfortunately, after a week, I pulled it off of the shelf to find that it was very warped. The solid board under the leather is apparently too thin. I don't think I will even be able to use this as it will not lay flat now with the board front and back being curved in the middle. In fairness to Levenger, this is the first of their products that I have been disappointed in. If you are looking to buy one of these I would recommend the junior size or zipper version of the junior size as the letter size will warp!
