The chart above shows the dimensions of the notebook while is is laying flat open,  from edge to edge.
 Overall, my notebooks are slightly wider than the common, allowing for no overhang if you follow these guidelines. Your notebook edges will be fully protected.
Below is the information for the corresponding inserts.   These measurements are the sizes of the inserts. 
Pocket  fits notebooks approximately 3.5” x 5.5”. Most commonly used are Field Notes or Moleskine inserts. Up to 5 inserts less than 1” thick  
A6 fits notebooks that are approximately 4"x6" (i.e. The Hobonichi Techo),  And do not exceed more than 1.5 inches in depth
Personal fit inserts that are  3.75" x 6.5 and do not exceed more than 1 inch in depth.
Narrow will hold up to 5 standard Midori brand inserts (approximately 4.5” x 8.25”) that are not more than 1” thick.
Wide  is sized for 5” x 8.25” inserts (usually Moleskine Cahier sold in a three pack). At least 4 inserts that do not exceed 1” thick will fit.
A5 notebooks that measure "5.8x8.25" (i.e. the Hobonichi Cousin) and do not exceed more than 1.5 inches in depth.

If you already have inserts:

Measure them carefully and find the size that is their closest match on the chart above. If you are between two notebook sizes, always choose the larger one.  Next, stack up the number of inserts you’d like to carry and measure how thick they are together.  This tells you how thick your spine will be when your notebook wraps around the inserts. Compare this to the width of the notebook you’re considering.  

For example, if you are using inserts that are 4.5” x 8.25”, and your stack of inserts is 1” high, you’d know you’d need the Narrow size. But if your stack is larger than 1”, you’d want to go up to the Wide.
