Free For All Friday - No. 733 by Steve

We are in the last week of November, which means we are in to the last month of the year within the next week.  

Does this mean you are in to 'must get it finished' month? '

When I was in paid employment, I used to hate December. Everyone was trying to get a months work of projects done in three weeks! 

These days I don't think of the end of the year as a point in time when things have to be finished by. 

How are your plans going towards the end of the year? 

Of course it's Friday, so please feel free to discuss anything Filofax related.  Have a good weekend.

Filofax New Releases

If you are on the Filofax mailing list you will have seen their recent announcements about the Filofax Norfolk and the Compact Zip Malden

The Norfolk is a new model in Pocket, Personal and A5 sizes, with 25mm, 30mm and 35mm ring sizes respectively. 

Each one is available in four colours: Almond, Sage, Lavender, Taupe (Brown, Green, Purple, Light Grey!) The leather has a small amount of padding under the surface. 

Each size has a full width back pocket. The credit card slots are in the inside back cover, with a zip pocket in the front inside cover. With full height slip pockets in both front and back inside covers. The Pocket and Personal size have a single elasticated pen loop attached to the back cover, the A5 has duel pen loops on the front and back covers. 

The rings are sadly riveted in. But not surprising I guess given the prices in UK: 
  • Pocket - £80
  • Personal - £95
  • A5 - £130 
These prices are comparable to say Moterm. However Filofax do include a full set of inserts with 'A Week on Two Pages Diary insert' printed on 80gsm paper. 

With Filofax products like these being made in China now, it's not surprising that prices are similar. 

The Compact Zip Malden is a re-release of an earlier version with a few differences

The Compact Zip Malden was originally released in about 2012/3 in Ochre, Navy and Purple. It was fitted with 15mm rings and lots of pockets and an external pocket as well. 

The 2023/3 version of the Compact Malden Zip has a removable 15mm rings, removable in the sense that they are mounted on a board that slips in to an inside pocket. There is also a removable 'wristlet'. It comes in either Pink or Black. 

The Compact Zip Malden is released at the UK price of £113 compared to £83 back in 2012! In 2012 there was a pocket zip Malden as well. No sign of that (yet) being re-released. Never say never!!

You can read my review of the Compact Zip Malden from 2015 here.

The internal pocket layout on the 2022 version looks very similar from the photos on the Filofax website. It also has the external slip pocket as well.

With the ring mechanism removed the Compact Malden Zip can be used as a purse/wallet. The outer pocket will take most smart phones comfortably as well. 

I would say that these are two welcome additions to the Filofax range. 

The Norfolk range and the Compact Malden Zip are available from Filofax UK and other sites around the world.
