I've traveled with a home-made set of travel folders for years but I've never found the ideal carrier for the folders - something that would keep the papers from falling out and the folders from getting damaged. The GTD® Zip Pouch keeps everything together and has a little extra room - just enough for a pen or two, a highlighter, and a pad of post-its. The bright orange color is a bit, well, bright for my taste but it's growing on me. I know it will be impossible to misplace! (That's a good thing)
I really like that they went with a fabric mesh for the pouch because I carry two pouches and the mesh allows me to see what's inside without opening up the pouch. I hope that they will expand the product line with other colors of pouches.
The folders are flexible and sturdy and the lettering looks nice. My only complaint is that my beautiful custom labels look cheap in comparison. Here again, is an opportunity for improvement: I wonder if they will someday let you order a custom kit of folders by choosing from a list of 30 or 40 preprinted folders? Knowing Liz, I'm sure it's an idea that has been discussed. Also included with the folder kit are some blank folders, which you can label as needed, and a reference card from David Allen with some tips for setting up your system
Anyway, I'm enjoying the folders and the pouches and I find them to be a classy addition to my GTD toolkit. To the GTD product design team, well done!
Note: My photo really doesn't do the product justice, but I wanted to show you how I use the folders. Use the links below for better photos.
