I love my Moleskine Folio. Since I keep my todo list and certain notes on paper, I carry a Moleskine to meetings along with my laptop. I use the pockets to hold my pen and a display adapter and sometimes even zip my phone in, too. Fewer things to carry is a good thing!
The moleskin was a VERY tight fit. I had to force the Moleskin in in and was difficult to zip with only 2 pens. The interior plastic and the cardboard used to stiffen the outer covers of the folio warped and became (and is still) deformed.
I contacted customer service at Rickshaw to see about returning the product. They could not have been LESS helpful. I received the following, telling me about HIS portfolio. What does this have to do with my problem????
1) I'm testing out My Classic Folio right now, and with four pens, there's enough room to hold other flat papers. The idea is to have a snug fit, so pens and loose papers stay in one place during transportation.
2) We don't use any adhesives in our Folio, and the plastic can be slightly misshapen by our binding process. The only thing I've found to help with rigidity is keeping the Moleskine in the Folio, and pens in each slot.
After other useless responses from customer service, I did get this "We would offer a 30% discount towards any future purchase" NO THANK YOU, I'll go back to TIMBUK2 for the quality and excellent customer service
Unfortunately, I had to click a star to continue, otherwise I would not have give this product any stars

I love this folio - it matches my messenger bag. I carry a moleskine, couple of standard size pens, and a slim 12 month calendar in the zippered pocket. This pretty much fills the folio - I wish it could hold an additional small notebook or maybe a half a post-it pad but that addition makes zipping the folio a challenge. I think I will probably end up removing the flap of fabric that is sewn in presumably to protect the moleskine cover. If the folio were just a tiny bit bigger I'd probably buy a few for Christmas gifts but at its current size it just seems a bit limited....

This is perfect for holding my Moleskine and a few colored pens to take to conferences and meetings. I use it for sketchnoting, and I love it!

My Classic Moleskine Folio is a real treat to use - I got it in the yellow waxed canvas with black cordura binding. It holds the large Moleskine it was designed for perfectly, and then some. I was fortunate enough to receive it here at home on the East Coast in time to take it back to San Francisco for a conference and a little "home visit" shall we say. I used it to store my receipts for my conference expenses (the clear pocket for loose papers was perfect for that), business cards - check, pens - check, moleskine - check, USB thumb drive - check. Even my Nexus 7 tablet fit ... with the screen against the reverse side of the neoprene flap to protect it! It was perhaps a tad heavier than I had imagined, but I am not marking it down for that. It's obviously a sturdy product that is well-designed and made to last. I really don't see how one could improve it. It was perfect for carrying about when I didn't need the laptop and could just wander the streets (not as often as I would have liked). As I continue to stuff it full of daily carries, the Folio is doing just what I need it to. I think this is one of those "lifetime" products.
