Having read the last reviews I felt I ought to comment, I purchased this item and the vehicle document file a few weeks ago. It is clear from the picture that A4 documents will have to be folded to store in this file so I was not surprised by this at all. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and the item is exactly as I had expected. As a family of 4 I wasn't expecting to be able to fit all of our birth certificates/passports etc in but I am happy to say I have easily fitted all of our documents in safely. In fact I would consider buying other files in this range, all my paperwork is now filed neatly away and it looks great on my bookshelf.
