Hello everyone!

 

I'm looking for a quality leather folio for my EDC. It should fit at least an iPad Mini and it should have some pockets on the inside for the smartphone and some pens.

I really like the "Mod" by "This Is Ground", but I live in Switzerland and with shipping costs and taxes, it would cost me around 400$ which is simply too much, even for a high quality leather folio.

 

But some of you might know some good alternatives?

 

Cheers, Marc

I'm not an expert on leather items, but I do know of a local leather maker who makes what he calls a Briefolio:

Holds an iPad in the smaller pocket, and can accommodate a MacBook Pro in the front, or anything else. However, it does not have interior pockets, but it is $125 USD cheaper. It is also larger than the Mod, if size is an issue.

I can see with that iPad in there that it clelarly will not close because of the size.  That's interesting lol.

The iPad and MacBook are not pushed down all the way into the pocket. Here's a picture of it closed:

This seems to be a good alternative, though i miss the inside pockets. But i'll consider it, thanks!

I have a smaller version of this: http://www.knomobags...eeve-brown.html

 

It might fit the bill! It's definitely in a different (lower) class than the This Is Ground, but it's priced accordingly.

I found another folio, made by the german manufacturer germanmade. and i decided to go for this one. I've only heard good things about their product quality and the leather of the sleeve looks beautiful! Furthermore, the inside pockets are removable. I'm really excited about it!

I'd recommend Wildemoon leather to everyone. Some of the best single man leatherwork I've seen. Odin Leather is great too.
