This was a gift for a young man about to head out on his first overseas trip. I wanted something that would hold the necessaries, zip for security, and made of leather. The Road Scholar is all that and more. Really good quality, well organized. I wasn't expecting the magnetic closers on the wallet and holding it in the case - really slick! Now I want one for me. :)

Love, love, love it ;))
I LOVE this travel wallet so much that I use it for everyday use in addition to travelling.
I have purchased four so far. A black on I use everyday the red one I am hoarding and only use for travel. I have also bought two others for special people. The one I just received is for a friend who lives in Cuba. It is for his graduation from his Master's program. Shhhhh....don't tell him; it's a surprise ;)
I love every single feature of this wallet. The only thing I have a problem with is I haven't been able to zip it for several months because I have too many receipts inside. I am going to purge them again and then I am going to toss my older Departure Case in my purse (again) and put my receipts in there. I found that especially helpful for Christmas receipts ;)
Bring back red!!!!!!!!
New Levenger color should be lime green! ;))

Exquisite and functional wallet!
I have had a tan colored version of this wallet since 2004 and after 10 years am replacing it with the black version. This is the only wallet anywhere that has so many holders for creadit cards, receipts, notes and other essentials. It would be nice if it came in other colors than black - if I had a choice, how about red!

This wallet keeps me from having my credit and other cards slip out when I need to show my ID. It is the right size and keeps everything at easy reach but also secure. I love it.

Perfect Doc holder
I bought this case for my husband many years ago and my son specifically asked for one this year. This case is the perfect size for all your travel docs including tickets. Leather is high quality and the personalization is very smart looking. Wish it came in more colors.

My favorite Travel Companion
When my old travel wallet died, i searched and searched to find something that perfectly fit my needs and this was it. This is by far my best piece of travel luggage and traveling companion ever! It conveniently holds all of my frequent flyer cards, other discounnt cards, passport and boarding passes. It's high grain, high quaiity and stores all of my information just in the right places and easily acceptable. Anyone that does frequent traveling needs one of these! Others similar tavel wallets can't compare to this in design and this is a fraction of the cost.

Best frequent traveler wallet ever
This wallet solved my biggest problem with switching between travel (weekly 2-3 overnights for work) and home (grocery shopping, hardware store shopping, etc.). I would like an eighth of an inch longer inside, and twice as thick to hold more receipts. Otherwise, this is the perfect wallet for my needs. I have had one since it was introduced and it shows no signs of wear. If it ever wears out, I'll buy another.

Best Purchase ever
I have used this wallet for many years and I actually have two. (In different colors) I could not be organized without it. There is plenty of space not only for my passport, cards, and checkbook, but the two outside pockets hold a pad and all my receipts. The zipper assures me that nothing will be lost.
Disappointed that there are no longer color choices. For all who likes organization ...a MUST!

An old friend
I just ordered my second road scholar. The first is an old friend that finally gave up the ghost after what must be 8+ years of daily use. It has been from York, UK to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa and all over the US. It has been backpacking and to board meetings. One of the best purchases I have ever made! And below for how i use this product--all of the above should be an option :)

Excellent for frequent travelers
I carry two passports and a variety of currency and this case has been a lifesaver for those reasons alone. The card slots are critical for carrying frequent flyer program hard cards, the snap-in wallet fits in a jacket pocket, and I can carry and sort multiple boarding passes. I've purchased this for many people on special occasions and will continue to do so.
