There is nothing about the Folio that I do not like. The color is true and the look is fabulous. Well worth the price.
I use a Moleskine Planner -not journal- which is quite a bit thicker than a standard Moleskine (240pg vs 180 if I'm not mistaken).
Because of this difference, finding a cover for my planner had been pretty much impossible. I had all but given up to be quite honest.
I found Rickshaw one day during a clickfest and saw the customization option and sent an email with a glimmer of hope that a slightly larger cover could be made for me.
Not only was it possible, but it was deemed "not a problem at all!" I was ecstatic! FINALLY!
I carry my planner with me EVERYWHERE. It has gone across an ocean, usually is on my bedside table at night, and usually greets my coffee cup with me blearily with me in the morning. I have a place for my pens, a few odds and ends, and it goes wherever I go without a problem in the slightest.
When I need something made again, I'll be back.

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....
