Looking for a folio...

Hi all.

I find myself considering a leather folio?basically just a zippered leather pouch that I can throw some stuff in (e.g. a calendar, a moleskine, and a Palm), toss in my messenger bag and pull out when I need to go to a meeting so I don't have to wag around my often very heavy bag.

Ideally, I'd like something like this, but I'd like something a little more, um, floppy and less organizer-y.

I do NOT want a writing pad, nor to I want it to fold out all the way. A zipper along the top and one side would be ideal. Basically, I want something like one of those petty cash bags, but big enough to hold an 8.5x11 legal pad and some file folders if I wanted to throw one in there.

Anyone have any suggestions? Am I even calling such a thing by the correct name?

Thanks in advance!

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
