soft and functional,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Filofax Malden Pocket organiser (Office Product)
I spent a ridiculous amount of time to settle on this model of Filofax, looking for information about different models on the Internet. I had been using a lime green Filofax Pocket Piazza for several years, but was getting fed up with its bulkiness. Then I bought a Mini Finchley, which was absolutely lovely, but I found it too small...
Although this Malden Pocket is a Pocket, it feels much thinner than my old Piazza, due to its flexible, soft leather. I've only got this for a few weeks, but it looks like this is a kind of leather which becomes more lovely and snuggled the longer you use it. Initially I wasn't sure about the 'wallet' structure on top as it could add extra thickness. But it's actually OK, and even useful. The colour (purple) is absolutely lovely (less blue than in the amazon pic). There are 4 pockets (plus the wallet opening), and the one on the right hand side could even be used to carry your smartphone!
I use a Pilot Frixion Ball Slim pen for my Malden which fits beautifully in the pen loop (it's an erasable pen from Japan (like myself)).
Having spent my youth in the late 80s & early 90s, I always come back to an analogue scheduling system. Malden will be my mate to keep my otherwise disorganised life relatively organised in the next few years...
