Excellent piece of kit
I needed to get a notebook cover a few weeks back, but I didn't know what one to get. After looking around, I decided to take the plunge and get this one - purely because it is of simple design and slightly larger than some other notepad holders I had been looking at.
It is made of a pretty decent quality material, and the stitching is good- no fraying here! It has a nice weight and sturdiness to it- it will protect your notepads. I say notepads because it can hold several, as well as A6 cards or similar pieces of paper. There is a piece of webbing reinforcing the edges which gives it some rigidity. The pouch/ pocket on the front can hold several pens, pencils and probably a compass.
It fits well in the chest pocket of a smock, but is too big for a normal trouser pocket.
I can safely say I have used it and abused it with cadets, in the rain and sun shine- and it hasn't ripped, torn, faded and the zip hasn't jammed or got stuck.
It's a pretty decent piece of kit, that'e helped to organise my kit a bit more- now I'm not always searching for my notepads and pens all the time!
