Using in different way but it works

There aren't a lot of leather cover with extra pockets for Moleskine pocket. As a die hard Moleskine pocket user, I wanted to keep my Moleskine and Surface duo in the same place. It may not be the usage the designer intended but by using band to fix both my notebook and mobile device, it keeps my on the go gear in one place.
I won't be losing them in my bag or easily bring them together to the meeting room etc.

Nice and solid build, leather feels awesome.
The pen band is little tight for my Muji pen (I guess it's designed for fountain pens) but still usable.

Overall good purchase for the price. Definitely worth it.

Feel-good experience

The leather is thick, yet it feels so soft. Feels good holding it in my hand. Feels good writing in my daily journal.

Perfect Size

Perfect size to throw in a bag. Holds any A6 notebook and my driver's license, bank card, and phone. It feels luxurious, is sturdy, and will last.

Excellence Workmanship

I was amazed by the colour of this Crazy Horse Brown. Using it with Hobonichi A6. Tried with my Stalogy A6 and it fit perfectly. Will definitely get another for my Stalogy.
The stitches works are excellence and the colour is slightly darker than other Crazy Horse Brown. But I really love it.

Leather Hobonichi Techo A6 Cover

I emailed Galen to ask which cover would fit the 5 year Hobinichi and they suggested this one. I couldn’t be happier with it. It fits perfectly. The cover stays closed even without the band around it. I wasn’t sure if I would like the band, but I like the way it looks. I ordered dark brown and the color is beautiful! I also got the personalization with it and I love it! The stitching and everything about this cover is superb! Thank you Galen Leather for another wonderful shopping experience! Fast shipping to the USA as always.

Much better than expected...

Don’t get me wrong, I knew the item would be of top quality as this is the second time I’m ordering from this company and all items I received are awesome.

My only concern was about to fit my iPhone SE 2020 with it's protective case as it is said it will fit up to an iPhone 6, which is a few millimeters smaller without a case. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my phone fits perfectly on the left side, even with a big A6 notebook on the right and a chunky TWSBI mini as pen.

I’m so very happy and love this perfect cover. I’ve been looking for something like that for ages. Thanks Galen for another top quality product.

Nothing but the best design and quality

As an avid user of fine writing instruments, I like to have my money well spent and also my pens and journals in pristine condition. It is why I choose Galen Leather Co. as my number one choice for all my journaling needs. The extra-wide elastic band set to the back of the journal cover is unique to me and well thought out. As you open the journal cover the elastic stays taught to the leather, not this loose long thin elastic band that seems to get in the way more often than not as from other crafters. The extra pocket and cardholder are a plus for those who need them. The leather is thick and not so supple as a fine Italian leather bag but it will last a long time. In all this is a quality item at an extremely reasonable price. I cannot wait for the new year to start my new journal...anticipation!

A beautiful gift for myself

I researched for many covers for my hobonichi and I finally landed on Galen Leather and it really did not disappoint me. High quality leather and workmanship. Delivery is considered fast and appreciate the little tokens from Turkey.

Gorgeous Leather

I received this planner cover and instantly fell in love. It is so soft to touch and love the subtle variations in the leather. This has to be my favourite leather from Galen Leather. If you are sitting on the fence, go for it.

Small, sturdy, stylish!

I'm not much of a "leather connoisseur" by any stretch of the imagination, but I would be hard-pressed to think of any other leather product that feels as good as this notebook cover does -- other Galen Leather items excluded, of course! This is the fourth Galen Leather product that I've purchased, and based off my impressions of this cover alone, I can see myself buying many more. Its outer surfaces are undeniably smooth, while presenting enough tooth and texture to remind yourself that you're holding the real deal: this is thick, durable leather material that will last you a lifetime. The strap is thick and substantial too, which I imagine would maintain it's elasticity for a long time to come. I'm looking forward seeing what I'm able to cram into this thing!
