Style Name: 25 per BoxSize: 3.5-Inch Expansion Verified Purchase
I bought a 25 pack of these around two years ago at Office Depot, and the Gold Box deal that I purchased the ones I received yesterday from Amazon, seemed to be a fair deal to replenish our dwindling supply, considering that Amazon stated that the "List Price" for a box of 25 was now $65.75.

I am sorely disappointed. The pockets received yesterday are less than half the weight and thickness of my older ones and are manufactured using a different, cheaper type cardboard with no stabilizing exterior finish. These new holders are a poor imitation, or substitute, for the same quality product, Made in the USA, that I paid Office Depot $34.00 for two years ago.

Check out the picture that I submitted and compare it to the pictures of the new replacement product. These new ones are only worth, at most, far less than a dollar each.

These new folders were assembled in Mexico, using a thinner stock of paper, and a lessor quality glue. Smead may have increased their profit margin by selling this cheaper, less durable product at twice the price as the older folders, but they have lost a long time customer. The next time I buy office supplies it will be in person, at a local store so that I can inspect the product before I buy it.

Update: 12/13/2011

I just noticed that the first picture on the product page, that matched the folders that I had reviewed from Amazon, has been changed back to a picture that matches the folders that I had purchased at Office Depot over three years ago.

The second picture shown is the type that Amazon offers, and I doubt that any ordering today will receive the folder displayed in the first picture.

This is well made, sturdy product has definitely improved with the addition of Easy Grip, making it so much easier to handle.It is a little expensive but I think the extra cost is worth it.

Style Name: 4 per BoxSize: 3.5-Inch Expansion Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I used these in a hanging file drawer to see how they would do in place of
regular manilla folders in the green hanging holders. They are very nice.
Sturdy, well-made. The side accordian expanding areas are tough.
They fit exactly where any standard folder would, even in a hanging file holder.
However, I used them without the hanging folder around them, so that I could expand them.

They take up a bit more space than a regular folder, even when not expanded at all,
so I would recommend only using these when you have some WIDE stacks of papers that
you want to keep in one folder. They are great for that because the papers can lay
flat, instead of becoming bunched up at the bottom like a big stack does in a regular
folder. They also mix with regular folders in the same drawer very well, and I can still
read all the labels at the top of both types.

Style Name: 4 per BoxSize: 3.5-Inch Expansion Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Back in the day, long before electronic document storage, these Smead Expandable pocket folders were my go-to choice for projects too small for a box and too large for a Manila folder.

Smead Easy Grips are well-made of strong, quality paper. They are expandable to three-and-a-half inches, sturdy, and take a beating. And this 21st Century version has a tacky substance on the top flaps--so you can securely grip them when removing them from the filing cabinet, a once-hazardous duty when filled to the max.

Few things nowaddays have endured the passage of time. And Smead EasyGrip Pocket Expandable folders keep doing their job better and better.

Style Name: 4 per BoxSize: 3.5-Inch Expansion Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm a PhD Student who has amassed a lot of copied articles, papers, and assorted other documents that are filling, and overfilling, drawers, and generally just entirely out of order. I was wanting a way to organize my material and so thought these might be helpful.

They are. Basically the picture says everything. These folders are very basic, but providing good protection and order. They are easily accessible. Pretty much exactly the size to fit 8.5x11 papers, with very little room for anything bigger, but not too tight that papers are stuck inside.

Style Name: 4 per BoxSize: 3.5-Inch Expansion Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These folders hold a lot of material and are very sturdy. When they are filled they stand up on their own instead of falling over like so many folders. The really nice feature of this folder is the non-slip top that extends across the entire top of the folder on both sides (front and back). This is so nice when you are trying to retrieve the folder from the file cabinet because the file doesn't slip from your hand. There is a lot of room on the top label line to note the file contents. I like these folders a lot.

Style Name: 4 per BoxSize: 3.5-Inch Expansion Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been using the regular expandable folders Smead Jackets, Letter Size, Straight Cut, Reinforced Tab, 2-Inch Expansion, Manila, 50 Per Box (75560) forever and have been very happy with them. They are cheap, and the perfect capacity for my needs. These easy grips have a huge capacity and work best with 8.5x11 letters. Because of the price, durability and the large capacity they seem to be engineered with lawyers in mind. The depth of the pocket is only 6.25 inches and when the folder is full it allows you to easily bend the flaps back and browse through your files.

If your using these to organize your bills and other odd sized things they will not work well for that purpose. You would be better-off getting the organizer Smead Ultracolor Expanding Files, Letter Size, 12 Pockets, Blue (70876)

For me the inexpensive 2" manila is all I really need.
If your needs require large capacity these would be a great choice. They are well built. Nothing is tear-proof when dealing with paper products but the reinforcement band at the top of the capacity folds and the thick walls will surely outlast any folder that I currently own.

I received this product free of charge to try through the vine program.
Would I spend my own money on this? no
