I love my Pelle journal!...
I love my Pelle journal! The packaging is beautiful, as is the journal itself. The notebook insert it comes with is very nice. I was torn between a Midori Traveler's Notebook and the Pelle and went with the Pelle because it's made in the USA; the Midori journal is made in Thailand. I'm sure it's very high quality, but I had to support the hometeam. Midori's paper notebooks are made in Japan, and I got one of their weekly planners (the passport size), it fits perfectly in my Pelle.
Also, anyone else trying to choose between the two, I noticed that with the Midori, the center elastic band's knot is tied in the back of the journal instead of in the side (or binding area) like the Pelle. I imagine this might be a bit difficult to work around when writing. Since I have not experienced it for myself, I'm not 100% sure, but when I saw that, it made me even happier I'd chosen the Pelle.
I received my journal superfast - thank you JetPens!

Had I known the Pelle...
Had I known the Pelle Leather Journal would go out of production and become unavailable, I would have bought many more of them. Sure, the design is so simple I could make my own version (and I will) but something about the actual Pelle product is worth the purchase. I will miss my Pelle Journal when I run out of inserts... I did have the luck of foresight to buy a few extra inserts. I'm very careful with what I put in them. The leather journal itself will out-live the rest of the supplies and I will be forced to adopt a different product and page layout format.
I would like to thank Jetpens.com for exposing me to this product and encourage them to find a replacement to include in their big giant collection of other great stuff :)
