I have only just received this portfolio, but it seems extremely well-made and thoughtfully designed. My iPad fits securely in an interior pocket with a velcro closure and my iPhone fits in a zippered pocket. That leaves pockets for papers or magazines, slots for business cards, credit cards, hotel key cards, etc. The leather is soft and supple and one side of the portfolio has no seams at all, so a person could close it and use it as a writing surface. The front has a nice trim-looking slot for things like plane tickets that a person would want quick access to. I can even remove the notebook and put my notebook computer there instead. I love it! I think I can use this instead of a briefcase, which was my intent.
