Bought it for nostalgic reasons... Loved having these as a child.

For $12.35, you get a binder and 5 dividers. But, it seems like half the cost comes from the name brand.

I still like it though. It's sturdy & convenient... I guess I just thought it should include at least one folder insert.

Also, there is only one loop which holds a single pen or pencil. Trapper Keeper should have more "bells & whistles"...

Hope this helped... Happy shopping! :)

I remember my pride and joy in the 3rd grade- my purple Trapper Keeper with rainbows and unicorns. Hey, it was the 80's!
I had really arrived. But, the Trapper Keeper worked hard. It had a laminated cover you could wipe clean, a velcro closure, and tons of room for all your papers and folders. Sadly, my Trapper Keeper was retired in middle school when it ceased to be cool, but I never forgot its workhorse character and stylin' appearance. I've since replaced the Trapper with binders, folders, and in my senior year of high school, nothing, when I prided myself on never doing homework (not a great plan, self!).

I was hoping for a renewed affection for the Trapper Keeper when this outsized binder appeared with the same name. Unfortunately, it is NOT the Trapper Keeper I knew and loved. It is simply a really big three-ring binder, made with cardboard and covered with nylon canvas fabric. It has five single dividers, a laminated cover in which you can slip papers in, an interior sleeve for papers, and a snap closure that doesn't work too well. The clip rings are tough to open and the whole thing is bulky and clumsy. This is not the Trapper Keeper of my youth; it's simply a big, sad, three-ring binder.

I chose the Trapper Keeper for it's name (reminds me of the glory days of childhood) and the price. And I guess it lived up to both. for the price, it's an ok and cute binder.

I take away a star because the closing mechanism isn't practical. It's just a little magnetic nub that sticks up and the ring is supposed to close over it, but if you actually put anything IN the binder (mine is full of about 1.5 inches of coupons) it can't close because the nub is too short. I should have spent the extra $5 and gotten a zipper close binder.

Color: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There are a lot of options for school binders/organizers in this price point. Most of them come from the same company: MEAD. The Trapper-Keeper, Like the Five-Star Products, are from MEAD. The biggest benefit of the Trapper-Keeper is the speed in which you can open and close it. One surprisingly durable snap both opens and closes the flap with very little effort from wherever you grab it. The effort required to open and close the snap was so light, I was a bit concerned regarding it's ability to hold under stress... not to worry! I loaded it up with a few 3-ring binders (160 sheets total) and tossed it up in the air a few times. The snap stayed closed upon impact! It should survive reasonable use by kids, though the internal pages will still be subject to dirt and liquid since the top and bottom is of the binder is open to the elements.

A second lessor benefit of the Trapper-Keeper is the clear sheet-protector on the outside snap/side. I guess it would be useful for a class schedule ... but ah... otherwise, it's probably just going to be utilized for vanity photos by kids, and the only full-sheet sized flap storage area on the binder. I noticed it was streaked by whatever I had on my fingers for lunch, so that clear sheet will probably get pretty nasty quick with the boy-children... just saying!

That is about where the comparative benefits of the Trapper Keeper end, and the reason why you should look toward the other MEAD products begins. Unlike the Trapper-Keeper, The Five-Star products have some significantly beneficial features such as full zipper closures, varying sizes including 1", 1.5" and 2" binding, numerous useful internal and external pockets for storing pens, change, calculators and ID, and even compact handles on the spine for easy vertical carrying.

Color: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Mead Trapper Keeper (item # 72173) has one clear exterior pocket. But it is too tight to hold more than a few sheets of paper. Anything less can fall right out of it, especially given its orientation toward the spine and a user’s naural tendency to hold a binder under their arm with the thick spine downward. This pocket is perhaps best used to hold a label identifying the contents. A simple re-design - reorienting the opening so that it is just barely underneath the flap - would be a welcome improvement. There is enough of a flap beyond the snap to make this possible.

The snap closure is difficult to engage. It is also overkill and of little value. Items can still fall out of the two interior fabric pockets if someone were to pick up the binder in the wrong direction. Hole-punched papers are held secure by the ring binder mechanism, so they are unlikely to need the services of the snap to keep them in place.

The 5 differently-colored plastic dividers are a nice feature, but not enough to warrant a recommendation to buy this Trapper Keeper in this particular configuration.
