I liked the texture of the cloth cover but I was a little taken aback when I saw the size of the binder. It is a 3 inch binder that, overall, measures 15 1/2 by 13 inches and I'm worried that when I fill it with completed pages it will be very heavy. I already find it rather hard to handle because of the size. I think it might have been helpful to see these measurements in the description. I do like Pioneer products and I will go ahead an use the four that I ordered but just wish I'd known how big it would be. I would not order this album again however and because of the size I do not think that I would recommend it to a friend.
