My favorite Rhodia pad is the N°16, which at 6 x 8.25 (A5) is just the right size for most of my note taking needs. I was very pleased when Rhodia introduced Pad Holders for the larger sizes, and especially so when I saw that the N°16 is the only Holder with a convenient side pen loop.
The Holder is imitation black leather with the Rhodia logo embossed on the front cover. Flip the top over and you have enough backing support for writing, which is great if you're taking notes somewhere other than your desk. The inside front cover also has a pocket for papers, receipts, cards, and whatever loose stuff you need to carry at that time.
If there's any drawback to the Pad Holder it's that you cannot write on the other side of the Rhodia sheet, which is one way to handle the ink bleed-through problem. If you are at all bothered by "wasted" space (one-sided writing only) then this is not for you. Otherwise, consider investing in a Pad Holder for your favorite Rhodia, either black or orange--it's a classy way to write.
