In a world where technology is taking over, finding the best leather padfolio may seem like a thing of the past. Who needs paper when you’ve got a miniature computer right in your hand? The short answer is padfolios and portfolios are useful for carrying your iPhone, smartphone or tablet. The longer answer is a bit more complicated and on a case-by-case basis.
Imagine you’re at a networking event and someone asks for a business card. You realize portfolios such as the ones below may come in handy. Sure, you could ask a potential client to type in your info on his or her phone and do away with the extra baggage. But then you’d have to hope that that person would also remember your website, what services you provide and where you two met.
Whipping out a simple business card from one of the padfolio holders takes care of that for you. And if you want to take notes while you’re at an event or conference, it may be easier to jot a few notes down with a padfolio that has pen and paper ready to go than to try to type in texts and emails quickly before the next speaker goes on stage. And if there are handouts at the event—assuming you don’t have a padfolio or portfolio—get ready to start making room in your purse or pockets to try to fit it all. (Padfolios are often smaller if you prefer to carry less, and portfolios often have straps to keep your hands free.) So if you have the option to invest in a padfolio or portfolio, why make your work and/or school life harder than it needs to be?

A common question consumers have when buying either a padfolio or portfolio is whether you can do away with your suitcase or computer bag altogether. As with the choices mentioned above, each option comes in different sizes. Some can hold certain sizes in tablets, smartphones and iPads. Others cannot. What you don’t want to do is ruin the material by trying to shove too many things in it at once.
Yes, portfolios often have straps. However, there are weight requirements and space requirements for those, too. Before purchasing a padfolio or portfolio, keep in mind what you would usually put in a briefcase or computer bag. If your padfolio choice doesn’t have room for all of those options, consider trying a larger one. Or, use the one you purchased with its intended compartments and keep your bag as a backup. Just as you can never have enough notebooks pens, it doesn’t hurt to have an extra bag during your business or school trek too. Who knows what else you may collect along the way?
