I really like this cover, it's all the benefits of a hybrid traveler's style notebook but without the annoying elastic closure. It's deep enough to fit 2 good size journals if you want, or a journal plus smaller books of different styles without looking like it's too empty. It's sturdy enough to use while writing in your lap unlike softer leather styles of covers, and the corners of pages are more protected from wear than many similar covers, something I really like. Would love if this came in a Navy outside/Tan inside colorway next, think that would be a classic middle ground for a unisex neutral. Will still buy the pocket version in this color when it comes back in stock though, want that one next!
Love this item. The layout of pockets is great. Construction quality is as promised. Using A5 Seven Seas journal in it. I would love it in other colors. The olive is a little more masculine than I would like. I think more women would purchase if it was available in additional covers.
This cover is fantastic! My favorite size notebook is A5 and I’ve had a lot of them. I have used leather travelers notebooks with all the pockets for years but never loved the elastic closure. Best closure I’ve tried! The cover is very lightweight yet still quality and luxurious feel. I am a fountain pen enthusiast so the fact that the notebooks they make have Tomoe River paper in them is a HUGE bonus. I am using the cover for my sketchbook which is a Stillman & Birn Alpha Series Softcover. It fits perfectly slipped into the back sleeve and I have one of the Lochby notebooks in the elastic with plenty of room for more notebooks. I love that you can’t see the elastics from the outside spine, you could easily remove them if you wanted to and it wouldn’t leave empty holes like on a travelers notebook. Also customer service was amazing, I had to contact them because I accidentally put in my old address and they responded quickly and fixed the problem. Delivery was super fast despite this pandemic. I would highly recommend this company and notebook cover, can’t wait for the pen roll to be back in stock!
