Notebook Belt Set of 2
Where Has This Been All My Life?
As soon as I saw these, I knew I had to buy some! I like to carry books and notebooks around with me, but hate it when they fall open in my bag and get the pages all scrunched. These solve that problem nicely. I also use them to hold my CIRCA planner closed, along with my Notabilia To Do Journal. I love the pen loop included on the belt, but be advised that some of the thicker pens with rubberized bits where you hold them will not work well with these. I had to look a bit to find slim ballpoint pens without rubber grips to use with these belts. All in all, though, a great idea. So glad to have found them!

Tighten your Belt!
I recently purchased and received the Notebook Belts - I am so happy with the function of something so simple! It not only keeps my notebook (letter size) together, but the pen loop makes it easy to always have my pen ready vs digging through my bag for it! I also noticed someone posted a picture with their reading glasses which is yet another great use for this! I bought purple and love the pop of color! Can't go wrong with these!! I'll probably buy some more in different colors to further differentiate my various notebooks. It would be great if you could buy a pack with all 4 colors!

If you tend to overstuff your notebook, these are fantastic for keeping it from exploding all over your desk/car/floor. I have four, and keep finding new uses for them around my house!

just wish these came in different colors as so to coordinate with all the other circa notebooks.

These belts are great. I keep my junior Circa notebook pretty full, so the belt is useful to keep things secure when I'm carrying it and using at several stops like errands and meetings.. It works great to mark the current page as well. 'Love the pencil holder--'can never have too many writing implements with me and putting it on the outside of the notebook helps reduce the volume.
I also use it on my kindle. It's a little large for that device, but I've adjusted how I use it and it works well. I bought 4 of the belts because I know I'll come up with additional uses!

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!
