I have tried out this portfolio for a couple of weeks so that I could have a more rounded perspective about the product. While considerably more bulky and, therefore, heavier, than just a case plus ereader or tablet, this product allows one to have a more than a jacket but less than a briefcase or messenger bag for those trips.
The accompanying slide show features images of my setup plus the various components on a kitchen scale to show what the resulting bulk would weigh. Added was a fresh “paralegal” pad, seven (7) business cards and 5 printed sheets of paper. Certainly the portfolio could hold much more but I did just a few items for the purpose of the review.
