First off, Galen has fantastic customer service. The folio I received had a manufacturing error where the zipper hadn't been fully sewn into the leather. I emailed them with a photo, and they shipped me out a new one without further issue. It really is a beautiful folio that I carry with me every day. I have gotten a lot of compliments from clients and co-workers on it. Since I still have the first one they sent me, I've been fooling around with it, though I'm not very good at sewing leather. I did put a leather wax on it to see what it would look like, and if it would protect it from spills and wear. It does give it a different appearance, and feels more slick to the touch. Things I set on top of it tend to slide right off. Without the wax it feels a little more like suede. I've included pictures of both folios side by side (the waxed is on the right), if anyone is considering waxing theirs. It's been a great experience, and I look forward to getting a few more things to go with my folio.
Very nice Notebook. Unfortunately, it has a small but deep scratch at the inside.
But it will get some more scratches over the years, so it´s not that bad.
All in all it´s a very good leather work.
Excellent craftsmanship, super quick shipping. The folio is perfect for notepads as well as notebooks. The removable pen holder is very practical. Lots of places to store small stuff. I can throw this in my bag or backpack and have all the writing equipment I need with me.
So, to my admittedly untrained eye, this is a well crafted product. The material seems durable and the stitching is great. It looks, feels and kinda smells amazing. Really happy with the quality. My lone complaint is that it's not as roomy as I'd envisioned. I'm still giving 5 stars as this is likely more to do with my stuff. I use the hardcover rhodia and my main pen is a Lamy 2000. They're both probably a shade thicker than what was intended for the folio so it's a bit squeezy when zipping up. Pretty minor issue though and I suspect if you're using normal sized items it would be a non-issue. 100% recommend though as I do love it.
It's the good quality and service as always. Not my first order and certainly it won't be my last one either :-)
I was looking for something durable and compact to take travelling and keep a journal and my fountain pens. This product exceeds my expectations. The loops are large (as fountain pens are usually thicker than regular pens) and the zippers are very smooth and good quality. I look forward to taking this along on my adventures. It will last me ages!
The A5 mini folio perfectly fits my needs ! Lovely packaging, good quality and great utility value. My favorite fountain pens, writing templates, cards, A5 endless recorder / A5 notebook, keys and two small vials of ink all fit in perfectly. No need to carry anything else. Everything fits in nice and snug. The leather feels nice to hold and carry around and looks good too ! Great product, Even better value !
The leather on this is absolutely gorgeous. Feels incredible. Bargain price for something of this quality!!
I've been searching for the perfect A5 pad folio for a couple of years, and I think this one is probably it. It holds a fountain pen, a Pineider pen filler for spare ink, an Apple Pencil along with its charging cord, and a mechanical pencil with a spare lead case, along with a passport, a couple of photo white-balance and color-balance cards, and the A5 notebook. It's zippered, so I won't lose anything even if a pen gets a little loose in its elastic holder. The leather color and texture is very natural, and it gets a beautiful semi-distressed look very quickly.
