I have had both designs for the large bifold and like the one pictured that you have best. It is easier to get the cards out as opposed to the older style where they kind of made an impression into the back piece of leather and was more of a struggle than the newer ones. The newer style style seemed less rigid in the back pocket because it didn't have the extra leather stiffening it up. Lastly, when I opened the newer compared to the older style, I seemed to have more room to look for bills and receipts as it opened up a little more because there was less sewing on the bottom where the fold is. Hopefully this all makes sense--it seems to as I am writing it.
