A wonderful gift to yourself or others!

Every time you open a Galen Leather package it feels like you are receiving a gift. Upon opening the box I was greeted by a warm leather smell (I have the Crazy Horse Brown). The smell built up expectations for the actual feel of the leather and upon laying my hands on its cover it felt simply perfect, very luxurious!
The zipper is rugged and feels of high quality. So are the pen retainers loop that easily accommodate my Pelikan M620 and my Omas Arco Milord at each end of the size spectrum.
As for the A5 part it can receive a hard cover Leuchturm1917 A5 notebook as well as anything under and with the leather flap I can actually write on the left page i.e. over my pens. For this to work you need to have your pen holder side mostly filled for obvious reasons!
100% satisfied with my purchase and considering getting the A5 Pen and Portfolio as a gift.

Hard but yet beautiful

Because of side costs like tax and shipping, I hesitated a long time but in the end couldn't resist :). The pen case is so beautiful and I'm sure it will even get better being used for years. Pity though that's it's not as soft as I expected it to be (no stuffing/inlay) and also thin pens fall out. Nevertheless I do love it and it's great to have pens and notebook together in one map.

Just beautiful

This notebook holder is a thing of beauty. The craftmanship is superb. It feels so nice in the hand. It fits the 400 page A5 Tomoe River notebook and 10 pens snugly. I love it

A beautifully made product with surprisingly large capacity

My personalised leather pen and A5 notebook holder arrived today through FedEx in very quick time. This is everything I hoped for and more. Beautifully made and can hold all my favourite pens. I particularly love the design with the flap so you don’t have to take the notebook out of the cover to write in the left hand side. Lots of lovely extras as well. I continue to be impressed with your company. Service is second to none and products are of very high standard. Thank you.

Beautiful case!

This is the perfect case for my Sailor Cocktails Collection.

Great Product

Take it with me every day to work and love the quality of this product. I also bought one for my wife.

Rebecca (Simi Valley, US)

Love the setup, with my journal on the right and all my fountain pens on the left. The soft flap protects the pens and also makes it easier to write in the left side of the journal. I’m happy to see that as stuffed as my journals get with all the extra paper ephemera and washi tapes I use, the zipper still closes. I’m currently in an A5 MD diary that has 176 pages and poufs up to about an inch in thickness by the time it’s full. The cover feels soft and indestructible, but does collect a lot of scratches. I’ve never been much of a fan of the Crazy Horse leather look but wanted to try it out - and now I’m quite fond of it and the ruggedness. Workmanship is outstanding, I can highly recommend Galen Leather products. And now I can’t stop buying more!

Bonnie (Novato, US)

It was hard to decide between this and the other zippered A5 cover with the pockets and other bells and whistles. In the end, I didn’t think I would use the pockets much and really just wanted to be able to carry my pens with my journal since I have about 10 inked up at a time. It is perfect! The leather is so smooth and it’s gorgeous. Love it!!

I love my new BuJo cover!

I was very worried before I got this that my relatively thick (23 mm) Scribbles that Matter A5 bullet journal would not fit properly with all my pens in. When I put it all together, the cover did bulge in places and I was worried about the stitching around the zipper, but it has only been a few days and the leather is already stretching to conform to the contents, and the zipper and its stitching are holding up perfectly. This is the BuJo solution I needed, all my pens, pencil, highlighters together with my journal, and the quality of the leather and the craftsmanship are excellent!

K (Bolton, US)
It's worth it!!

I'm exceptionally pleased. This pen case/notebook cover is of excellent quality and wonderful. The leather is supple and lovely to the touch. I added pictures because the only thing which made me delay ordering it sooner was if my over stuffed A5 would fit into it with pens and have it able to zipper closed. The answer is YES and it zippered without issue.

In the case:
1- 496pg 52 gsm Tomoe River notebook which is 95% filled. There are easily 100 extra 32 lb HP paper glued into it, along with stickers, washi tape and assorted blotter pages , a Galen leather blotter page and a soft pencil board from Nanami.
8 fountain pens
