In the third edition in this series of lesser-known Filofaxes I will showcase The Henley. It is not often seen in markets like eBay and I myself only got one by chance.

The model

The Henley has no back pocket which might be a problem for some people but can also be a treat as it helps the binder to keep a slim profile and makes it easier to lay flat. The Pocket-size showcased here has the smaller ring size of 15mm but this only helps the binder in size (see comparison-pictures well below with an Amazona Pocket). It was made in Personal- and Pocket-size in black and brown. I have a Pocket-sized one in brown which will be shown in pictures following.

The pen loop on the right which is positioned very well ensuring the pen won't interfere with the inserts!

comparison-picture with an Amazona Pocket below. The angle of the picture is not perfect as it does suggest the Henley is higher than the Amazona. Which is wrong. It is the exact same height but it is not as wide making it fit in smaller bags.
