Ordered with initials and hoped for the best after reading reviews. All reports about sticky zippers are true. But, I put some oil on the zipper, which helped and now the Briefolio serves its advertised purpose. After 6 weeks zipper and tab are still on. So far, it's a good value and I like it.

I was looking for something to bring home files and notebooks without having to lug home my entire laptop bag. This is everything I wanted, excellent quality and even with the initials it arrived within the week. Very pleased with this website and their products, already have a few more items on the way. Just wish I knew if there was something to polish /clean the bag with or if I even should?

I needed a folio that was large, durable, and satisfied my sense of aesthetics, and the Essential Briefolio is perfect. I carry a lot of loose sheet notes, and notebooks, for an ongoing manuscript, and wanted something stylish but functional. The large size fits all my papers, the heavy duty zipper is essential for stuffing the bag, and the leather quality is smooth without being too soft and flexible when being thrown hither and thither. Buy it, use it, abuse it. It's just what I wanted.

Great Addition to my Briefbag
I purchased the Tusting Briefbag from Levenger and this is a nice compliment to that bag. It is easy to carry and I use it when I need just a few items on an appointment. I added the monogram which is a nice feature and reasonably priced. I was amazed at how fast it arrived with the personalization. This great little item holds just the right amount of tools too. Circa notebook, ipad, a few other folders fit nicely into this rich leather folio.

I rec'd my purchase last week and was very excited until I tried to open it. The zipper was difficult to open and it took me several hours to get it closed again. Having had it monogrammed, it can't be returned. I was looking for a nice gift to give to my clients who use my agency, but I will have to look for another high end gift for my travelers. As for me, I'll now have to find a leather shop to help solve my problems if possible.

This was my first purchase from Levenger. While the quality is not so bad that I will return it, I was nonetheless disappointed. The zipper is very sticky and I think that I might throw it in the trash one day in frustration. Maybe it will loosen up, hopefully. Also the leather feels cheap and not soft at all. As a leather accessory addict, I will keep it but have bought much nicer goods from Leather and Luggage

Poem - Briefolio 'O Mine
Briefolio, Briefolio--you keep my things together
Zipped up nicely in your beautiful leather.
When I'm dashing around from meeting to meeting,
You can take quite the beating,
Yet, I know I can count on you forever!

This product is extremely well made and functional. The leather is top quality and the design is very modern and appealing to all.

The briefolio was a frustrating purchase due to the poor quality of the construction. The zipper pull came off after only one day. I exchanged it for a new one to give Levenger the benefit of the doubt. The same thing happened again after minimal use so it was returned for a refund. Normally, Levenger sells great quality products, but this one fell flat.

I received this as a gift a year ago and couldn't be happier. At first, wasn't sure if I would enjoy the functionality. After my first week with this briefolio, I was a big fan of it. I carry this along with a black ambi folio and a laptop on my back for my commute. My back is feeling better already!
Might get the bomber version next!
