I find it funny that this is considered a "small" pad--it is a really good mid-range size (for me, at least), about the size of an iPad or small laptop (and fits great in my laptop bag!). This is also great for walk-around table work where you need a clean surface for performance that doesn't take up a lot of space but looks professional too. I have the "mini" size of this same pad for and I think I prefer the one, though they are both great for workers. Time will tell which is better for my needs, but I like it so far.
It's hard to beat the price for what you get--it's decently well-made (I had a tiny tear in the leather on one edge, but only I can see it), a good padded surface, and a professional-looking piece of equipment. For me it's just enough space for a full deck spread, and light and strong. I've been looking for a close-up pad like this for a long time, and this is a steal for this price.
