The winner will receive a pair of See-View leather folios by Stow London. Worth £175 each, the folios have a trim and reverse made of butter-soft Spanish leather, with a transparent window on one side, allowing boarding passes to be scanned inside the pouch. They are large enough for A4 travel documents and tablets, but sleek enough to fit easily into airline seat pockets.
