Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Filofax Malden Zipped Folio Ochre (ipad case) (Office Product)
This is a great item. I looked long and hard for a new iPad case but I was disappointed by the mass produced rubbish out there. I also like to keep my iPad 'neked', not bulked out by a case. I have recently moved from my old Malden Filofax (paper) to the Apple calendar and Omnifocus. However, I still use paper for all my thinking actions, nothing beats paper for that. And there is something about a great fountain pen scratching on good paper.
So, I got down to this item and the other Malden Portfolio that has a A5 filofax built in. I decided to go with this as it less bulky and the A5 Filofax is not ideal (the back cover is plastic rather than that rich leather). I was concerned that it would be too small. It has just arrived and the leather is brilliant, colour and texture. It is a lot bigger than you would think, but slim. There is a zipped pocket in the centre with a nice soft lining that holds the iPad securely, not too tight so it goes in easily with the smart cover on. In addition there are a number of other pockets. This was a concern in moving from my Filofax where I have a whole raft of things (drivers licence, emergency cash, library cards, etc.). The zipped pocket on the front inside holds this all. There are some pockets for phone, iPods, pen, etc. On the back inside there is a sleeve for loose papers, so things that I have ripped from magazines, news papers etc. can go in there ready for reading on a flight. Between these I have my A4 Red and Black spiral, holds it easily. On the outside back there is another zipper pocket that I will use for boarding passes, etc.
All in all, this is great. Now in my travel bag I have my laptop and this. When I get to a location I can quickly pull this portfolio out and have everything I need to relax or get some work done.
I highly recommend this product as well as the seller, Just Sports and Leisure - used them before and they are great.
