I’ve been using the Levenger Softfolio 2.0 for the past few months as my primary business portfolio. It's used to hold my work to-do list, calendar, and miscellaneous notes. So far, it has done an amazing job and has held up against wear and tear quite well.
Even though the Levenger Softfolio 2.0 is considered a business portfolio, I believe any professional or student can use it for organization. It is made of supple, yet durable genuine leather with a very understated design. The Softfolio has 4 pockets that can hold business cards, note cards, and etc. It also has a zipper compartment intended for an iPad, but I've used it to store other things. The portfolio closes securely with a magnetic closure.
The Softfolio comes in two sizes: letter and junior. I opted to get the junior as it’s just big enough for all my needs and is convenient to throw in a bag. Both sizes come with a Freeleaf Annotation Ruled Pad and a Circa Translucent Notebook. For the first few months, I used the Circa Notebook and was quite pleased. It has archive quality 90-gsm paper and handles fountain pen ink with minimal bleeding through the paper. Since then, I’ve opted to replace the Circa notebook with a Clairefontaine spiral bound notebook which fits perfectly inside the portfolio. It’s great that there are so many customization options with the Softfolio!
