I have taken my Popov Leather Field Notes Cover with me wherever I have traveled over the last 6 months. I keep three notebooks inside, and this leather cover has proven itself a road-worthy tool. It has aged elegantly these first six months, and should minor scratches occur, they are easily buffed away, leaving the leather looking beautiful. This wonderful cover does not exhibit "wear & tear". It begins to show experience, like well-travelled leather brief cases. Such aging makes a statement to all those who see this attractive accessory being taken out, opened and notes being recorded with pencil. No iPad for me, thanks. This beauty will be with me for many long years, and continue to perform its duties with added personality as the miles add up and the important memo's it keeps safe inside are delivered to their final destinations.
Thank you, Ryan, for craftsmanship that reflects the quality of an era long past in today's world of low-expectation, throw-away junk.

Nate Day said: Phenomenal service; pen loop hard to pocket
I ordered a chocolate leather wallet with red string and large pen loops from Popov Leather for my birthday at the beginning of May. I'm pleased to say this shop completely exceeded my expectations. They went above and beyond to get the wallet to me quickly (about a week after I ordered it), and even added a handwritten happy birthday message! There were no bad surprises with Popov Leather - I was kept informed through the process of ordering my wallet, and I did not feel confused about my order status at any point.
I have no issues with the wallet's quality or Popov Leather's excellent customer service. The only downside of this wallet is the pen loops I added, which make it challenging to easily slide the wallet in and out of my pocket without it getting caught on the opening of my pants. I carry my wallet in my front right pocket, so your mileage may vary with pen loops snagging on things. Keep in mind the impact pen loops may have on pocketability when you order, and you'll be fine!

Love my new Popov leather moleskin cover. It has two pockets for business cards as well as a large pocket to fold important items for future use and review.

Trisha Priebe said: This gift for my husband did not disappoint!
When my husband commented on a PoPov Leather picture he saw online I knew I needed to pay attention. Always at a loss for "the perfect gift," I was glad he handed me an idea on a silver platter.
I ordered the Chocolate Leather Field Notes Cover with Pockets, initials, and pen loops for Valentine's Day. The only thing that outmatched his enthusiasm was my own at seeing him happy with the product. He now carries it everywhere. I think this may be the most successful gift effort on my behalf. I have you to thank. (Also, I will need ideas each holiday if you could kindly send me brilliant new suggestions frequently.)
Bonus: My husband loves Moleskine notebooks and is especially happy that he can use his stash of pocket notebooks with his PoPov product. Win/win.
I like that it smells good. Make a candle that smells this way, please and thank you. Great job! Beautiful craftsmanship. Perfect customer service.

Craig Colomb said: Chocolate Leather Field Notes Cover with Pockets and Initials
I did received the Field Notes Cover with Pockets with my initial laser onto the front of the cover. The workmanship is very nice and the color match exact what is seen on the website. I believe it will last a long time. The only thing that I found is the initials are very low on the right side bottom of the cover. In which when you put something in the lower inside pocket on the left side and close the cover the initials seem to disappear in the corner. I really enjoy the workmanship on the product and that is the only thing that I might change for future orders. Look forward in making another selection for additional gifts in the future. Thanks for your service and quality of product.

Ilivia Rozelle said: Beautiful Gift
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!

James B. said: I love my new Field Notes cover!
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! :-)
