I purchased one of these clipboards over 10 years ago when I was a law enforcement Explorer and carried it with me on ride-alongs and to our meetings. I now use it daily as a police patrolman. It has seen a lot of "love" in the field, and still keeps its shape throughout (even the spring for the document clip still works like new). It has the same dimensions and features as other name-brands, but costs less. I recommend this product.
