    Truth is, sometimes beauty is only skin deep... like with cows. Their poetry is notoriously terrible, but man, their hides are nature's art. We don't believe that flawlessness equals beauty. Beauty is when we're able to see something as it really is.

    This is true with humans too. There are lots of quality people who are really beautiful not in spite of, but because of the marks life has given them.

    When I was selling real estate in Mexico City and would go to visit a potential client, I never wanted to overwhelm or intimidate them with a big bag full of contracts. It’s better to come in with a few simple notes or a thin briefcase, so you don’t make them feel like you’re selling. Coming in with only a few simple things is a great selling technique. It’s a subtle way of telling your client that you know what you’re talking about without intimidating. If you can make a great impression on a potential client at the same time, then you’re golden. This notepad holder took about three years and about 8 different tries to get the design right because I wanted it to be perfect. And for me, it is.

    Proud Wife!

    I purchased a medium notepad holder in Tobacco THIS week for my husband's graduation from Texas A&M. I have been waiting months for one to pop up in Dave's Deals but then panicked when I noticed they were out of stock. I live chatted with an employee a few times checking on when it would be back. Tuesday I received an email that it was back in stock and DID NOT hesitate to just order one at full price. Today, Friday, I received it in the mail. My husband is going to FLIP at how beautiful it is and how the smell is to die for. This is the PERFECT gift for someone who is hardworking and deserving of a work tool that will last a lifetime. So proud of my husband and his accomplishments, AND can't wait to see his face when he opens it! Thanks Dave! Can't wait to shower my guy with more of your handcrafted leather!

    Graduation Gift

    Just received a Chestnut Medium Notepad Holder purchased for my daughter's law school graduation. Very pleased with the design & outstanding quality. Purchased a Large Classic Briefcase for myself last year after numerous years looking at various brands. Saddleback Leather delivers !!

    Better than great!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I have been hunting for a notepad folder that'd stand up to my aggressive travel schedule for months before coming across Saddleback. I went with a 25% discounted Dave's Deal in Dark Coffee and I could not be more pleased. The leather is a little stiff (as you'd expect) and it smells very new but the color is awesome and the folder holds everything I need for my weeks on the road. I'm pretty sure that this folder will last far longer than the one it is replacing (a Staples piece). Don't wait! Buy one!

    Awesome!

    The Notepad Holder from SBL is of the highest quality. I got it on Chestnut and could not be happier with it. It fits perfectly in my medium Chestnut Thin Briefcase. It is not too thick but still very sturdy. Awesome quality.

Ok got to go, have to purchase more saddle back p.s did I mention postage was first class. One day delivery!!,

    Prowling around Dave's Deals for days hoping a tobacco brown would come available. Couldn't wait any longer as my old pad holder needed to be replaced. Item arrived yesterday ahead of schedule (anything SBL can never come quickly enough!) It's a beefy, beautiful, aromatic piece. For the ladies, it works for us, too. Not too masculine. I now have both the small and medium. Thanks for the great products, Saddleback!

    This Notepad Holder Is For Real!!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I am a commercial insurance sales executive and have used several different brands of notepad covers over the years. Insurance companies give these away to us but they just don't last very long nor are they what you would call "quality". I decided that although these are free from the companies we represent, I wanted something with more class, durability, and functionality. That's when I discovered Saddleback Leather on the web and began purusing the website; I found exectly what I was looking for. I read the reviews and was more than pleased with what I read so I ordered a Medium Carbon Black Notepad Holder. I can't say enough about the quality of the workmanship and material. This is by far better than anything on the market, and will certainly outlast anything on the market. Definitely worth every penny. My colleagues are jealous!!

    I love this thing arguably more than I should.

    by - verified purchaser |
    I am a narcotics investigator on a multi-jurisdictional Federal, State, and Local drug task force--needless to say, I conduct a LOT of interviews, briefings, and debriefings.

    My wonderful wife purchased this for me for my birthday, as I have always had an attraction to real, good leather. It accommodates my papers, schedule, and voice recorder with ease. I don't know how I have gone through life without this - durable, classy, perfectly designed and the ultimate companion on my day to day activities.

    This being my first Saddleback product has guaranteed more to come. Thank you!

    Buy it - that's the bottom line

    by - verified purchaser |
    The tagline really says it all but...

    I take a notepad almost everywhere. I have a laptop but I still like real paper and a real [fountain] pen. It feels right and I think that you interact with your audience or the speaker better when not hiding behind some digital device.

    My search was to find something simple and built well. I didn't want zippers or metal fasteners and it needed to hold letter or A4 paper. This notebook cover is just that. Dave says that he built it for himself (and didn't really care if anyone else liked it or not) but I believe it was built for me. It is exactly what I was looking for plus the smell while writing is wonderful.

    I have always wanted to buy something from Saddleback Leather. I am so glad to finally have had the opportunity.

    PS I have already sold one of them to one of my wife's coworkers - after seeing it he had to have one. What better advertisement is that?

    Nothing Else Like It!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I grew tired of going through a number of cheap, giveaway-type portfolios that not only looked cheap, but fell apart pretty quickly as well. What's the point? Anyway, I picked up one of these in Chestnut on Dave's Deals and wow! Unless I lose it or somebody steals it, I can't imagine ever wanting or having to replace it. It rides in my Saddleback briefcase wherever I go, and after about 6 months it's picking up some nice character. I get a lot of compliments on it, and it's ALWAYS the nicest portfolio in the room. Go ahead and get one!

    One more reason it's the best

    by - verified purchaser |
    In addition to all the glowing comments in other reviews, I love this notepad cover because I can fold it back--a fantastic feature that is very hard to find in quality pad folios. When I hold it on my lap or place it on a small table, I can write with ease. It is also a great feature for lefties.

    Small Notepad

    by - verified purchaser |
    I've had the small notepad in Tobacco light brown for a little over a year. I'm in the military and I use it at work everyday as I go to meetings, etc. It works great with a spiral top 5x8 writing pad. I've also made it work with a spiral calendar on the left side. I cut a slit in the back plastic cover of the calendar so that it slides in the pocket and stays put -- it has worked great.

    The quality and workmanship are excellent. I often get compliments on it. Although I've scratched the leather carrying it around, it just continues to look better. In addition, the leather was a bit stiff initially because it is a thick, quality piece of leather. However, over time it has become more flexible -- just like a favorite baseball mitt.

    I am very glad I made this purchase. I know I will be using it for the rest of my career!

    I'm pissed I could only afford one.

    by - verified purchaser |
    I started out buying a wallet. Two years later I have two of the wallets(one small one large), a moleskin cover, bible cover, and finally a rfid shielded passport wallet. All in Tobacco Brown of course, (as if there was any other color to choose from). About 9 months ago I bought the small notepad holder for myself as a graduation gift. Immediately after opening I realized that I should have dropped the extra few dollars to get the large size but upon looking at it and actually getting my hands on it there was no way I was going to be able to send it back to Saddleback for an exchange. I scrounged out a pad to stick in it and went to get a refill for my nicest pen I had in the house. Long story short, Its been with me everyday, on my desk or in my backpack, used at least once every few hours to check my appointments, jot down a memo to myself or tuck away an import reciept or piece of paper. It has a few small scuffs and dings but as the leather slowly darkens and changes color, the scuffs and scratches almost seem to vanish or become part of its character. I plan on getting the large as soon as I possibly can. Thank you Dave, Suzette and the Saddleback Crew for making me a loyal customer and supporter of what you do, continue making your products and I will continue to buy them.

    Great Product

    by |
    I had already purchased two of the wallets and was looking for something else to try out from SBL. I use the small notepads at work and then I saw this small notepad holder. I used this last time at work for 21 days straight and it held up fine of course. It only stayed in my office and took it to morning meetings, working on a drilling rig offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, I didn't want to take it outside the living quarters, nothing last due to the saltwater in the air. All in all, it works, looks great and I am about to buy something else now :-)

    Great Product

    I wanted to get a new notepad holder for when seeing clients. My old one was getting a bit old and ragged. When I received the SBL large notepad holder I was a little surprised as to how big and heavy it was. I didn't use it - only occasionally when I had to. 6 months later the holder is now a bit weathered and is a lot softer. It is great - it is now my principal notepad holder and I love using it. It just needed to be worked in.

    Both sizes in black

    by |
    I have both sizes in black. Larger for work and smaller for personal. Love them both. I clean and treat three times annually. They both match me. I am as rugged as they are. I put the miles on them. Highest quality and construction. You pay more for excellent quality.

    Be Careful, this is a slippery slope!

    by |
    So this is the first item that I purchased from Saddleback, and I can tell you it is addictive. If you are like me you can never have too much of a good thing, and this is the highest quality leather you will ever own. However be warned the inexpensive items are a gateway drug!! I say this with much chagrin, because I now have over 8 items and as I write this I just placed another order for 3 more accessories. The most expensive item I have is the Dry bag, and I can tell you it is the same quality as the notepad holder. Bottom line is this stuff is well made, and very good looking.
