I really like the concept of being able to design your own folio. While my fabric selections were pretty conservative (Coffee brown with black piping) the colors are so intense that they strike both a professional and sophisticated look. I take it with me everywhere with my business cards, three sakura ink pens, and my smart phone. I also carry some personal photos, a small amount of cash for emergencies, and newspaper clippings and articles I want to review with my work team.
I think having the folio makes me look and feel more professional and productive so I become more professional and productive. Rickshaw bags makes a great folio and the customer experience was without fault.

This is a great folio for the Moleskine and a phone. I use it to keep a notebook, phone, pen, and miscellaneous receipts or business cards during the work day.
I took off one star for the experience of how it is to actually write in the notebook. When writing on the right page, you are not pushing against the notebook's back cover, but against the bag's tags and rear pocket. This adds an unpleasant texture to the page.
As a workaround to the above problem, you can put your Moleskine in upside down. This works pretty well, and as a bonus lets you have access to your Moleskine rear pocket again. The folio zipper will sometimes tangle with the Moleskine bookmark, so tie the bookmark with a loop in the end to shorten it and avoid tangling.
To put a US Letter paper in it, you have to fold it twice.
After buying one of these for a friend I decided it was time to treat myself. Mine is cordura, which I prefer to the x-pac material as it's more flexible, especially if you're going to stuff the folio with things. I appreciate what some reviewers say about the size of it - too small etc - but that really depends on what you're trying to fit into it. I think it's fine. You can't over-stuff it, but I take that as a good thing - stops me carrying my life around with me. I don't put a moleskine in it, but it's great for keeping lots of little things, including my iPod, together. Am also thinking it will be great as a travel wallet. I bought it in black with the moss edge, which I think looks classy, and it seems well made.
