Rated 2 out of 5�by Shirley If the size advertised was correct, best ever
I purchased this 5 years ago and use it on a daily basis at my job. It is outside in all different types of weather, (rain, snow, and sleet). It has held up wonderfully. After 5 years it is showing some signs of wear and tear which is expected.
I went to purchase a replacement and when it arrived I was very disappointed. The size is 13.5 x 11.5 x 2 although the web site advertises it as 12.5 x 13.38 x 2 .25. That made a huge difference. I can not use it for work. I have many sheet protectors with divider tabs, and now that is an inch smaller I can not use my tabs and may have to separate my papers into 2 of them.

Rated 5 out of 5�by Binder User Great Product
I use this binder for work on a daily basis out in the field. It is large enough to hold all the supplies and documents I need and has held up nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5�by CeCe Best Backpack/ Binder Ever for my middle schooler!
My 12 year old budding entomologist wanted a stylish, sleek back pack for school this year. She chose the Samsonite 3 ring binder padfolio. I was not convinced that this was the best choice. I was concerned that the padfolio would not be sturdy. My daughter stated that the padfolio was the same cost as most backpacks, and it would give her the convenience of a binder with enough room to carry her folders, notebooks, and homework. She showed me right in the store how all her school work could fit in that padfolio. I used a silver marker to write her name in cursive at the top. The day she took her padfolio to school most of her friends wanted one. She's had the padfolio since September 2011 and it's still going strong for May 2012. There is a very, very slight tear at the corner that was fixed with a small piece of black duct tape (you can't even see it). This padfolio held up for 8 months for a middle schooler; that's impressive. I'm definitely getting her another one. Because the padfolio is sturdy, great price, and my daughter says it has plenty of style for a fashionista, I highly recommend this product.
