Ryan went above and beyond to meet my requests as I had asked for some slight changes (painted edges) to this cover to give it a slightly more formal look. The leather is beautiful, the stitching is spot on and the service was excellent. I am very happy to recommend Popov Leather and this notebook cover.

AC Sexton said: Welp. Guess I've bought my last wallet.
I absolutely love this product. The craftsmanship is stellar, it fits everything I need, it holds everything securely, and it's the perfect size for my overcoat's inside-pocket. The pen loop is a great touch (see below for further on that) and the notebook pockets are perfect for hiding away dollar bills and bar membership cards.
It is just a little large for a front pocket, and it will peek a little out of your back pocket if carried there (but that's where I keep mine without a coat).
My pen loops were extremely tight at first and would only accept a BIC-style stick pen. But because the stitching is so solid, I figured I'd take a calculated risk -- a little leather conditioner, a little finesse, and I was able to put a standard Sharpie through. I left it overnight, and after a little relaxing, it now snugly and securely accepts the Micron felt tip pens I use for writing.
The fit is made for field notes, but also perfectly accommodates the military 'green brain' - small side-bound federal supply service notebooks I've always carried as a trip journal.
I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone (or as a thoughtful gift for anyone) who carries a pocket notebook and separate wallet. Absolutely worth every penny.

Many of the things you order online disappoint...not this one. Very well made, nice sturdy leather and the two pen loops not only hold my Zebra pen in place but also keep the cover closed in place because of the design. I love my Field Notes and now love my Popov cover. Highly recommended!

Great leather, tight stitching, innovation in design in how the pockets are created without adding a lot of additional thickness. This will barely stick out of the back pocket of jeans, which is fine with me, but should be noted before being worn with slacks.

Garrett Dimon said: High quality and a joy to use
I love it. The leather is soft, and it's easy to open and close. The loops for holding a pen are really nice as well since they originate from opposite ends of the cover and create a nice locking mechanism when the pen is placed through it. The only downside is that the loops are designed for traditional thinner pens. So it limits the type of pens that fit well. That said, it's one of those things that should be that way so that you have a snug fit and the pen can't easily fall out.

Quality product and very useful. Easily the nicest leather product I have ever owned. And now my field notes don't get so messed up. Good stuff.

I received Driftwood Leather Field Notes Cover with Pockets and large lopholds a week ago. It really stands out as a beautiful essential accessories in my edc. The leather is really lovely and the blue line which I chose, and with my initials stand this up as my own. Like it really well.

Just wanted to take a second and let you know what a great product you produce! I have been using my Field Notes cover (Driftwood color with pen holder) daily for over a month now and it is taking everything I can throw at it and it is holding up beautifully. I keep the cover in my back right pocket with pen in place (in the picture) and it stays in place. The ongoing use has made the cover soft as butter which allows it to lay flat on the table or my lap which makes writing much easier without a cover that is continually trying to close on me. It easily holds two Field Notes notebooks but I don't need to keep separate journals so one works perfectly fine for me.
The stitching I chose (cream) has aged nicely over the last month and looks great with the leather and is not showing any sign of negative wear or fraying. The pen holder does exactly what it is supposed to do, it holds the pen in place perfectly. It also holds a pencil tightly as well, but I poked myself in the rear so that option is no longer being used. :o) I have not yet lost the pen, had the pen uncap or found it loose in my back pocket.
I gave this 5 stars as I really could not find anything wrong with this product at all. It has surpassed my expectations and am thrilled with how it has held up thus far.

High quality and craftsmanship. Wish I'd bought this years ago. Customer service was also exceptional. I needed the item fast and they made it happen for me. Thanks! P.S. If anyone else is struggling as I did with making the choice of which leather to go with, you would never regret choosing driftwood.

I've had my Field Notes notebook cover for about a month now and I love it. I carry it everywhere I go and use it as part of my EDC. It is very well constructed of very high quality leather and I anticipate having it for many many years to come! I highly recommend Popov leather! The Chef

This field notes cover goes with me everywhere! I was sold on Popov Leather as soon as I received my first piece, my 5 card wallet- instant fan! Great construction, using top notch materials. I will admit, I am not a fan of scratches- my OCD gets in the way- the very first time I got a scratch on my field notes cover I was surprised to see that all it took was a little rubbing with my thumb and it was gone!

I was surprised by the quality of leather, and found that while it scratched quite easily they quickly blended into the hide and added character. The field notes cover is my new wallet and journal!

Wow. Where to start? The craftsmanship of this Field Notes wallet is out of this world. The stitching alone is flawless. And it retains a slim profile in my pocket, even when filled with a notebook and 7 cards. Can't wait until it wears in and looks a little used. Thanks so much, Popov Leather!
