This case is attractive, sturdy and exactly suited to my needs. I just completed my first weeklong international trip with it and loved using it. The clear plastic pocket is exactly the right size for a US passport and the other pockets are perfect for a few credit cards and receipts. The red color makes the case hard to miss if it drops. The leather looks far more expensive than it is.
I do a lot of international travel, so my passport gets heavy wear. For years, it took a large, long zip case to hold all the frequent flyer and hotel loyalty cards, the reams of travel documents (itineraries, hotel and airline confirmations, boarding passes, etc.) and a passport. However, all the loyalty card information is now tracked electronically and most of the itineraries are available online.
As a result, I was increasingly throwing my passport and boarding pass in a coat or shirt pocket which just seemed like an invitation to disaster, just asking the passport to get lost, strayed or stolen.
Most of the cases I looked at (even some bought on Amazon and returned) were either too bulky or the pockets were too tight to do any good. This one is the perfect size.
Two things could improve this already great product: RFID shielding and a pocket along the length of the case to slip paper money.
