I recently bought this item. I have had a Traveler's Notebook for a number of years. What drew me to the Explorer was the size. It is a better size for writing and the elastic that hold it closed does not interfere with writing on the last few pages. Where it falls short, for me, is the accessories that my T.N. has that the Explorer does not yet have. Galen Leather makes a great insert to hold credit cards and other items that I carry on a daily basis. If you or someone else can make these types of accessories, I would be hooked. The pen holder can use a little work as the whole 'going around the whole notebook' is a bit awkward and clumsy. Otherwise, a good product that could be great.
I still feel the leather is low quality (see previous review) but after multiple dead end conversations with customer service I decided to just use the notebook. The regalia paper is absolutely amazing! Five stars for the paper and one star for the leather. I will probably end up making my own leather cover using better leather.
The leather is very low quality. I wouldn’t buy a $12 pair of shoes made from this leather. In trying to deal with the customer service I received no assistance. I have filed a dispute with my credit card company. Beware!
Your product is in Himalayas.And loved.
