Notebook Belt Set of 2
Useful & Fits Pelikan 320 pens
I like these Notebook Belts. The cornflower blue is a pleasantly neutral color, and they work well with my Junior Circa notebooks (which have hard plastic covers). I appreciate that one will hold my Pelikan 320 fountain pen (the smallest Pelikan), so I can more easily keep a pen handy for meetings. I'd like them better if they could hold a Pelikan fountain pen in the 600 series, but I expected that from the picture & description. Still, I like them enough that I am thinking of buying another set. They don't work on my junior-sized paperbacks, as the elastic pulls on the pages too much to avoid damage. However, the belts are fine with the hardbacks, though I sometimes have to remove the book jackets so the belts don't damage them. Overall, they're quite handy.

Been looking for this!
I have been looking for this product, though I didn't know it. Was using hair bands and other things to hold my notebooks closed, but it was never a perfect solution. This is!!

This is so clever. Now my book doesn't "pop" open in the car or brief case, AND I can keep my extra pen, pencil or reading glasses in the loop. I love it
I also did not realize there were 2 straps in the package, an added bonus, since I had also ordered extra covers at the same time.

Good- but only one came in the package?
New to Levenger products. A client bought me a Circa Junior set as a thank you. Love the product so far, and immediately bought a few more accessories. Strange thing though. I purchased the purple elastic bookmark and it works well. Llike the pen holster function but I only received one in the package. Did not realize the error until I logged on to review.
Could be user error- but I have a second CIRCA junior from Behance- so I could have used them both.

The junior size is the perfect solution to secure my iPad cover and hold a stylus!

Been Looking for This
I've been looking for something like this. All I've been able to find up to now is ones that store the pan across the top of the book - okay, but not what I'm looking for - or very expensive ones that are custom-fit to one notebook.
I've only had them for a few days, so I can't testify to their long-term qualities, but in the short-run they've been what I was looking for.

Like a belt PLUS suspenders...
Saw these and knew it was the solution for me. My Junior sized Circa notebooks were often jostled open in my tote resulting in bent pages or lost notes. Great solution! The pen holder is a bonus as can be used for highlighter, pencil, or reading glasses.
As my Circa is rather 'plump' the band is just the right size to keep it all in order.

Great idea, needs work
I've had Bungees for years and now have the Spice It Up Bands (love!). I really was excited to be able to add a pen. I primarily will use this with Circa notebooks. I wish all of the covers had bands. Even so, I like using my Spice It Ups on notebooks to hold pages in place while I'm using my notebook.
So this is a great concept. Like the other reader, I'm having trouble with my strap being too loose. It doesn't fall off my notebook, but with a bigger pen or highlighter, it constantly moves around (top to bottom).
They are also thicker than I imagined. I will definitely keep using them...just maybe not on all the books and notebooks I had wanted to eventually outfit.

Really wanted a pen on my circa junior. I have the band without the holder and thought this would be perfect...not so much. It's alot looser than the other band and slides around.
