Traveler's Notebook Leather Cover - Crazy Horse Navy Blue

This colour is so gorgeous! It's such a deep blue, depending on the light it even looks black.
I really love it. The quality is also super nice and you always get extra stuff with each order (stickers, tea, nazar charm,...).

Lovely quality!

Fantastic rich colour and lovely quality. Really happy and it matches my pen too!

Absolute LOVE this

This is truly a gorgeous travelers notebook. I got the crazy horse green which is so pretty and such a silky, soft leather. This color seems to get a lot of love on this site which I couldn’t understand until I got one. It truly is lovely. Got my initials and they came out very well. I also bought the wallet insert but that does bulk up the notebook quite a bit. I do wish the notebook itself came with a pen loop attached but the wallet insert has the pen look so I’m using that. I also can carry the slip n zip case for more pens and stuff. Got the “Life begins after Coffee leather tag which is fun and very appropriate for me. Overall I’m very, very happy with this notebook and can highly recommend it.

Even better than expected!

This was my first order from Galen Leather, and I will definitely be ordering from here again! I had been searching for a replacement cover for my planner system for ages and I'd heard great things about Galen, so I decided to get the Crazy Horse Forest Green TN cover. In person, it is even more beautiful than I expected it to be. It is a tad narrower than the cover I was using previously, but it still easily fits three notebook inserts and a pretty bulky pouch. It is so smooth to the touch and the color is so deep and varied. I feel like this is exactly what I've been searching for in a cover ever since I started my traveler's notebook journey five years ago. From the beautiful packaging to the leather itself, this feels like the premium product that it is. I will definitely be adding more of these to my collection.

Butterfly charm is gorgeous!!

I can see why the butterfly charm has sold out, it’s thick (but not too much) and yet has such intricate delicately patterned butterfly wings. While I like the symbolism of the North Star (compass) one on my b5 tn, I prefer the butterfly one on my passport tn pictured here in the new ocean blue for its sturdiness and its finesse.

Perfect edc!

The pocket is the perfect size to hold my Galen everyday tn refill notebooks on the go. Great quality and a fabulous color inside and out, love it!
