This really blew me away. Right outside of the box, the thickness and smell of the leather had me. The Field Notes cover fits perfectly, of course, and the two card slots can probably fit up to 4 cards each. I had issues fitting a $5 bill without folding it once, but I do not carry cash very often so this is perfect for me. The free Field Notes cover included by Popov was icing on the cake.
The quality of this cover is excellent. I love the way the leather feels.
The notebook cover will comfortably hold (2) field notebooks on the right side. You can even get a third notebook in it by slipping in on the left under the front cover.
I had elastic straps added to mine to hold the pen/pencil. This is the source of my 1 star deduction. The front cover has two pockets for either credit cards or business cards. The slots are just deep enough to hold business cards without having their protruding end bend when the cover is closed. However, the elastic interferes strap protrudes into the slot a bit and reduces the depth of the slot, business cards will not fit without having their ends bent. This is more of a be aware of this condition than a complaint.
Other than the above, this is a fantastic product. It goes with me where ever I go . Highly recommend this product. I also have the passport holder that is a 5 star product.
