Circa Zip Pocket set of 2
Terrible at best...
The concept of the zip pocket is a necessary one, however, the quality is sub-par for Levenger. The plastic is cheaply made and the zipper fails every time. I have also had the plastic crack and split open on the seams where everything then fell out. Perhaps if it was constructed from some sort of sturdy fabric? I so rarely, if ever, have anything negative to say about Levenger products that I honestly hated to write a review on this product! I ♡ Levenger!

Only good for flat items
I tried youse these pockets for a small pack of flash cards. If there is ANY stress on the zipper, the white pull pops off and there is NO WAY to open the zipper without cutting the pouch. When it happened to the first one, I thought it was a fluke. But the same thing happened to the second one. To Levenger's credit, they replaced my items (with another item). I would love to see a better design for this product (maybe not airtight).

I love this zip case! It's the perfect size, even with full sized notebooks, to hold business cards, iPhone, a pen and a pencil. Perfect for the early morning meeting when you're also juggling your coffee and muffin.

Like most people, I have different Circa Notebooks for different purposes. Since becoming a grandmother, I have taken up knitting and have a notebook of collected patterns. I put a few zip pockets in the front to keep circular & double pointed needles separated by size. They are easily accessible and I know immediately if I have the right needle for the job.

Good, But Could Be Better
Like the reviewer before me, I really like the idea of this zip pocket but am bothered by the bump from the zipper while writing. I want the function of the zip pocket, but, as currently configured, I am continually debating about removing it because it interferes with my writing and I do not want to move it to the front of my Circa.
I believe this problem could be solved easily by making the pocket wider by a quarter of an inch so the zipper clears the paper and doesn't interfere with the writing surface. The Circa covers and jackets seem to be wide enough to accommodate the additional width without interfering with the pen loop or other functions. Please consider re-designing this just a little to improve the function a lot.

Position of Zipper on Pocket?
Am I the only one who finds it hard to write when I have a pocket in the back of a letter-sized notebook? The zipper plastic piece keeps me from being able to press firmly on the pages, which pop up a bit. Maybe I should start carrying it in the front? Is that what you all do? Cause you sound a lot happier than I do about these.
Again, I wish Levenger could do some small usability tweaks to the circa accessories that would make them so much more versatile.

Love this..... I use it to hold receipts and money and convert my zip folio into a wallet/agenda. Also sturdy to hold compact and slim cell phone.

Circa Zip pockets allow people to carry whatever loose essentials they need to work. I carry pens, pencils, and contact cards in these until I can archive them.

Just what I needed.
I can now carry some stamps, address labels and other "smalls" without fear of losing them. A perfect accessory.
