I received this cover in my shipment and was amazed at the quality. The leather is soft and supple like you would have on an expensive handbag. I am quite particular and am proud to tote this cover around. I was having a hard time finding a really large cover for my study bible and this item fit the bill. Beauty, size, organization, and price, what more can you ask for?
I was so excited and after looking for several days for just the "right" bible cover for my new ESV Study Bible, I ordered the Wordkeeper. I received it in the mail yesterday and couldn't wait to open the packaging to put my study bible in it. The leather was nice as was the color. I will say the handle was extremely disappointing to me. It is very tiny in comparison to the extra large bible case. The handle needs to be much wider and more sturdy as well its not completely leather. It is a very small strip that is attached to the case with nylon. I question on how long it will hold up due to the heaviness of my study bible. It's enough to make me want to return it on just that alone. Very disappointing. The extra large is too big for my study bible but I like a little cushion so nothing gets damaged. The zipper is very hard to get a hold of and zip it closed. Everything that came with it is nice but if the handle would have been better made I would have loved it. I didn't give it many stars due to the fact that the handle was cheaply put together.
I like it for all the room, but I ordered mine to big for my parallel bible. I went by the measurements of each item and ordered accordingly, I thought, but I don't feel like my bible is secure in the organizer. I ordered this one because of the extra fold out flap for taking notes in church, but that part is to flimsy to right on. I love the removable pin holder and how much room there is for storage. The burgundy color is beautiful and soft. I have trouble with the zipper but I think it is because mine is to big. My husband wants one so we may order the large and see how that works for him.
This organizer is really wonderful. A place for everything and easy to organize. The only problem I have is that the x-large size was recommended with the large study bible I bought previously from here, and it is two big. I thought at first that this would not be an issue, (the bigger the better, right?), but it is bulky and my bible front cover doesn't stay tightly in the Organizer front cover flap; it pops out a lot. The Bible also slides up and down a lot because of the extra room. I do wish I could get a smaller size, but I feel funny returning it since I've had it for over a month.
The quality was average but the deciding factor in returning the Bible cover was that the way that the back panel was constructed was bulky and I wondering how long the Velcro closing mechanism would be functional.
