Switching between Bible covers? This one is a keeper, if you are not worried about having a note pad and your pen right in your Bible cover! I usually carry a purse/bag of some sort anyway. The quality is outstanding and I don't mind tucking the strap under the pages before starting to read. It is not in my way, as I red before it may be. the bookmark is beautiful and functional. This Bible cover also helps me take better care of my Bible. I don't mind that the Bible is not entirely enclosed! I just love it!!
I read the previous reviews about this cover prior to purchasing and one in particular said that these covers run larger than listed, and based on that advise I purchase one slightly larger than recommended. Let me just say these covers DO run true to size and as a result I had to exchange the original size for a larger one. All in all a very unique cover that should get better over time as the leather stretches and wears.
This is a beautiful Bible cover, but much larger than the stated dimensions. It is supposed to fit my Bible, but is much too large and the closure will not work properly. I will have to try ordering the smaller one and hope that it fits.
The dimensions of the XL cover that I received are more like 11.25 x 9.25 x 2.
My Bible is 9.5 x 6.75 x 2 and this cover is much too large for it.
This is a superior product - more expensive than most alternatives, but if you are interested in obtaining a high quality leather cover, this will not disappoint. I was looking for something that would accommodate my ESV wide-margin, and this fits perfectly. A couple points of interest: this is a cover that closes with an elastic strap, not a zippered bag; consequently, your Bible is not completely enclosed. Furthermore, there is no opportunity to pack a pen or a small notebook. Nevertheless, this cover lives up to the product description. The CBD staff was extremely helpful - ensuring that I had selected the one that fitted my Bible best. I'm very satisfied with this purchase and very confident in recommending it.
