I've owned one of these for a few years now; unless there's been a DRASTIC change in Levenger's quality or supply chain, this piece IS real leather. Really nice pebble grain; I also have the messenger bag made out of the same stuff.
Beware- this is not real Leather.. it’s faux pas, meaning it’s rexine. Secondly it’s size is big, quite big for a laptop.. more like for keeping a file with bunch of paper or Mac book pro 17”.. which is why it’s quite heavy also due to the artificial material.. and definitely not worth the price tag.

The Levenger website says "bomber jacket briefolio," "full-grain pebbled mocha leather" and "handsome leather portfolio."

The term "full-grain leather" is a technical term that means that the top surface of the hide is used. This is a higher quality than "top-grain leather" and "genuine leather."

On the other hand, if you are going to pebble the leather, top-grain or geniune would be more common, since full-grain is usually appreciated for its natural pattern and defects.

Also, the monogramming shown on the Levenger page shows depressed letters almost like the subsurface of the leather melted down under heat. Maybe this kind of monogramming is possible with full-grain leather simply by applying an enormous amount of pressure. I don't know. Actually, I'm looking at my leather Kindle case right now from Journal Standard, and it has the company logo is a similar look to the Levenger folio monogramming.

My verdict: a tentative vote for real leather. The company would have to be lying, and it's one thing to lie and say that genuine leather is top-grain leather, but quite another to say that plastic is leather.
Looking at the pictures, I see a macbook. Will it fit a macbook pro 13" reasonably?

can fit 5 of those.. big, heavy and not made from leather
Does anyone have any insights as to what this can hold? Has anyone tried an iPad Pro 12.5 in it?

It's about 4~5cm longer and wider than iPad Pro 12.9 inch.

This holds a lot. I keep all of my clairfontaine stationary, G Lalo, a bunch of cards, in it, along with 2 packages of A5 Tomoe River paper. Plus I can stick at least 4 Visconti 6pck pen cases in it. You could carry 1 1/2" thick of file folders (legal sized). It's very versatile and I love mine!
Thought I'd throw out that I look at this every time it comes up, and love it, except for the color. I just don't like brown. Black would be fine; open to other options, too.
Can anyone comment on the size difference between the regular and the expandable briefolios? Any side by side photo comparisons of the two?

Still hoping to find someone who can offer a size comparison between the regular and expandable briefolios.

It’s not Leather, why have you given wrong description?
If only it opened on 3 sides. Looking for a leather calendar/papers/business card/pen holder for meetings. Must be at least A4. Any suggestions? My current 15 year old at-a-glance leather A4 zipper folio is finally falling apart.

Levenger also has the larger bomber jacket zipfolio (http://www.levenger.com/CIRCA-326/Folios---Circa-Notebook-327/Bomber-Jacket-Circa-Zip-Pro-Folio-13251.aspx) which sounds exactly like what you're asking for
Paradox460
That looks perfect. Thanks!
