Try saying “Folio Portfolio” several times as fast as you can– whew! But maybe it’s easier than “Folio Memo Pockets.”
Anyway, as promised, here’s a look at the other Moleskine Folio item I recently purchased, the jumbo version of the Memo Pockets: the Moleskine that’s all pockets, no pages.
If you love the look and style of hardcover Moleskine notebooks, this is a nice accessory. It’s great to have an attractive folder to hold letter-size papers. There’s also a larger version that would function as an artist’s portfolio. It’s not as if there aren’t plenty of other products out there that serve this purpose– but they won’t perfectly match your notebook, now will they?
Like the Folio Sketchbook I reviewed, this is almost identical to the smaller Memo Pockets except for the name and size. It’s shown next to a pocket size Moleskine below.
When you open it up, there’s a cardboard spacer inside to prevent the spine from being crushed. It’s about an inch thick, but the bottom will expand out much wider. The accordion folds are wide enough that the 6 slots open out easily. The interior first “page” has the usual space for writing your name, etc. It’s actually made of a thick board, so the whole package is quite sturdy.
This is another item made with FSC certified paper. And there it is in action, with recipe clippings and a large Piccadilly notebook stuffed inside!
Oddly, the back of the paper band seems to give incorrect measurements– I checked, and my portfolio was about 9 1/4 x 13″, which means it’s technically not A4 size, though it would hold A4 size papers.
Bottom line: a great way for Moleskine fans to carry larger papers in the style to which you’re accustomed!
