I have been buying these portfolios for years
By Mrs. Mo

Comments about Star Products Dura-Tote Portfolios:
I am a high school art teacher and I have been buying the portfolios for years for my students to use. They start using them in Art 2 and continue to use the same portfolio through Art 4. The majority of students still have the same portfolio when they graduate. My students carry them from home to school frequently. The laminated surface helps make them last longer as well as protect them from light rain. My only complaint is that the handles would frequently rip out. So, now when a student purchases one from me I have them put strips of duct tape over where the handles attach on the inside of the portfolio to strengthen the handles. The handles tend to tear when my students overload them and they get heavy. The reinforcement with duct tape seems to do the job and nobody can see it unless you look inside.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Light weight for carrying artwork or storing it
Great for protecting watercolor or photos but also great to carry unframed artwork when neccessary.

The tote is great in protecting my artwork and also for transporting. Although it is "cardboard" it provides the protection i need. i am not sure about rainy days though. i think i want also another one in plastic.it is lightweight and durable as it is.

I barely had anything in it and the strap broke the first time I used it. I would never recommend this to anyone. Very disappointed

I selected these portfolios for my AP Studio students based on a reasonable price and water resistent. It did really well with most students, but we found out that it was not meant to carry much weight. Perfect for a few pieces, carrying back and forth from home to classroom. I added vinyl numbers rather than students' names so that I could use them every year despite my roster.

Not the quality expected
from Nashville, TN
Portfolio is not the exact size advertised. 22x30" watercolor paper does not fit as it should. One of the Portfolio's corners are not sealed. These portfolios are not well constructed. I was disappointed in the quality.
