The design on the cover is great but that's where it stops. The edges of this cover are very, very rough and sharp. They may soften but only time will tell. The wrap elastic is far too tight to accommodate the number of inserts that the wide size allows so I've replaced that. The other big issue is the length of the elastic along the spine; it's silly short for the inserts. It immediately started to tear the nice inserts because of this. They just do not sit comfortably in the cover at all. The insert is 8.25inches and the elastic along the spine of the cover is just over 7.5inches. This means you have to wiggle it to centre in the cover and it puts a lot of wear on the top and bottom of the insert. I have a lot of travellers notebooks, make my own etc and this, in my opinion, lets this cover down. The eyelets should have been further apart or the cover slightly oversized height wise as it is standard TN size.
