Title: Field Notes notebooks, Anyone?
Post by: Russkie on September 24, 2015, 06:53:18 AM
Does anyone else use these?

I carry a Field Notes every day, and have found them to be very rugged and well-made notebooks. They also fit easily in a pocket, and the many varieties make it fun to choose new ones.

Awesome, I just added some to my amazon wishlist.  I have a thing for graph paper and these are available in graph or dot graph.

I didn't get the Field Notes, but I got the Moleskin ones, in a 3-pack.
I carried it in the back pocket daily and made notes during my work day, and shopping lists, etc.
Since then, i moved on to a Rhodia book with a Quiver pen holder on the side. I still carry it in the back pocket, but can't sit on it since it's fat and stiffer than a Moleskin.
But I use it for work notes, in meetings, etc.

Moleskin and Rhodia is what is sold around here, can't find Fieldnotes anywhere but I want them because of their name, and their rarity lol.

I carried Rite-in-the-Rain coil notebooks but the coils get crushed in pockets, still, the paper is very good. No one sells stapled versions here.

Yeah, I prefer the book style bound rather the coil bound version. You can order it online if they are not stocked locally.

Bound rite in the rain is hard to beat. Virtually every field geologist in the U.S. Uses them.

I switched to a moleskine calendar. Left side is a week view calendar, right side is a journal/notes page.  Bought a nice leather cover from Etsy.  A few post it notes stuck in the inner cover just for shopping lists and leaving notes for others, etc.

I wish it was waterproof paper, but can't get everything I want...

I guess i'm just a "company man" for Field Notes. I use their new daily planner for schedules, take notes on their Steno for EMT class, and use the regular colors notebooks for journaling and Bible study.
If i'm writing something, it's usually into a Field Notes of some type.
