I was impressed by all of the extras of pens and pad and pockets, even a magnifying ruler! It doesn't fit my bible perfectly, but it will work for my Thomas Nelson Open Bible which I have had for years and now finally have protection for it.
I recently got a new Bible (New Oxford Annotated NRSV with Apocrypha) and my old Bible cover didn't fit. I searched online for a while to try and find a larger cover, and knowing that my old Bible cover, which is canvas, has lasted me almost a decade with the corners only just now showing some wear, I starting looking for a cost-effective canvas cover with pockets, as I tend to keep various important things in there like my confirmation card. Being a poor college student, I also needed to make sure that the cover I got would be a good initial investment, but also a long-lasting investment that will save me money over the long term by not having to buy new covers every few years. Though a bit on the bulky side, that is a relatively minor gripe considering that the bulk is because of the Bible notepad pocket and the removable Velcro pouch that holds the magnifier/bookmark/ruler, four color pen, and the highlighters. The removable notepad is also nice, having dedicated lines for date, speaker, and topic, as well has a margin for Scripture references next to the main note space. I am someone who looks for quality and durability in everything I buy, from work gloves to Bibles (all of mine are hardcover) to sunglasses and this Bible cover feels like it will join the ranks of smart, one-time investments that I have made that will pay off in the future. I highly recommend this cover to anyone.
