I purchased the Chocolate Field Notes cover (with white stitching and pen loops) as a gift for my husband, who had dropped MANY hints about it being a great gift idea for the holidays. I can't tell you how delighted he is with the gift. Over and over he has said "I just can't believe someone is making hand-crafted leather goods of this quality in North America." He loves the notebook... the quality of the leather, the hand-stitching, the feel of it in his hands. It is definitelythe pride of his every day carry. I think Popov is making wonderful products for a really unbelievable price. Exceptional value!

Andrew A. said: LARGE Wallet Made of Quality Leather
I handpicked this gift from my wife, getting it in the color and style that I wanted. She was nice enough to oblige! The chocolate brown leather looks like traditional brown leather, not light at all, but not too dark that it looks black. The leather appears to be of excellent quality, just stiff enough to maintain the wallet's posture, but soft enough that it's not uncomfortable to carry in my front pocket. The two internal card pockets can manage three credit/debit cards each (that's what I carry at least), but look like they could each handle about two more. They are not too tight, but do maintain the cards in place. The larger pocket behind the card pockets is perfect for cash folded in half, receipts, etc. The Field Notes notebook slides into the right inner pocket with ease, but the pocket is tight enough that the notebook doesn't risk falling out. The large pen loops accommodate an average size fountain pen like a TWSBI 580, or an Italix Parson's Essential from Mr. Pen. There are two loops, one on the front cover, one on the back which allows for the wallet to be "locked" when a pen is inserted. This is not my favorite feature, but I couldn't tell clearly enough from the product photo to realize that this is how the pen loops are attached to the wallet. Had I known that I would not have ordered the wallet with the loops. The only other downside to this wallet is the size. It is a LARGE wallet. The length comparison of the wallet with the BIC pen in the product photos is accurate. This wallet doesn't sit comfortably in the front pocket of my jeans all of the time. It isn't difficult to insert into my pocket, nor retrieve, it's just BIG.
Overall I'm satisfied with this Field Notes wallet. It's beautiful to behold, and has pockets for everything. The one major drawback to me is that it is BIG, making front pocket carry more difficult.

I bought this for my son-in-law, and he loves it. The quality and crafting is excellent! I called to make a change on the stitching color, and they graciously accommodated me and it was perfect! Thank you!

I added the pen loops which create a clever "locking" mechanism. The cover allows me to replace my wallet and ensures I always have a pen and notebook with me. The quality of craftsmanship is outstanding and it has already developed a character of its own. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone looking to amp up their style and productivity!

I have been using my field notes cover for about a month now. It is already starting to age well and looks and feels great. I get questions about it all the time, particularly the blue stitching.

Great, couldn’t have expected anything better. Such great leather. The only thing is I maybe should have gotten the one with a pen holder.

Ron said: Another Terrific Product from Ryan and Popov Leather!
Ryan's craftsmanship is phenomenal, matched only by his tremendous customer service. I now have several items created by Ryan, including this wonderful Field Notes Cover With Pockets. As usual, the stitching is terrific, the edges are burnished and sealed beautifully, the design is functionally elegant, and the Chromexcel is soft and luxurious. My only problem will be deciding WHICH Popov to carry on any given day! :-)
