Customer Reviews

It's a one and a half inch binder that has a closure which snaps shut.

Over the last 30 years, I've purchased several different types of binders, and this is the best of all.
Geraldine Ahearn
The binder is made of a very strong, and nice, cloth material that is all sewn together.

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 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.

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.

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.

I was a big Trapper Keeper nut as a kid, and still have a couple of the 80s/90s ones left, so was excited to see this come in the mail.

On one hand, it still serves the same basic functionality -- it's a binder that won't suddenly fly open at inopportune times, unlike traditional binders. And on the upside, unlike many products which seem to go down in durability in subsequent generations, this actually seems to be made of quite a bit sturdier material than the ones I owned as a child. Also, while I miss the awesome sauce designs of the old-school Trapper Keepers, having something where I can shove in my own page / photo / label / whatever probably works for me on a more functional level.

On the other hand, there are some ways in which this Trapper Keeper was a significant let-down for me.

1) The Trapper Keeper now closes with a snap, and one which takes a decent amount of force to close. Now, I hate the sound of velcro as much as the next person, so I totally understand why they went away from the velcro route. But instead of going with a magnet, clasp, elastic, or any of another more functional options, they went with a snap -- which means that it has to be lined up well, then pushed with enough force that it can bend or mark the papers inside.

2) The old school Trapper Keepers came with 2-3 folders -- you might well decide to buy more (most of us did, I think), but at least you had something to start with. This, on the other hand, comes with nothing at all inside but dividers -- which are not nearly as useful for me in today's world as they were in the 90s, given how rarely I (or anyone else I know) uses loose leaf filler paper now.
