I bought this cover to protect my passport and to be able to find it quickly in my purse when needed. The quality is outstanding and it is very attractive. The passport fits in it nicely, giving the passport protection and makes it seem a little stronger. The cover is slightly larger than a the US passport but again, makes it seem sturdy. This item is lightweight, you don't even know it's in your purse. I love it and will be purchasing another one for my daughter.
