Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should! Took this notebook out in the rain and used it to take some notes on compass bearings and such, and works great with a regular mechanical pencil! Will use it plenty more times I'm sure.

after writing in ball point pen (in dry conditions as noted) will the ink still run if the page gets wet? (never used waterproof paper before) Or is it best just to use a pencil?

Asked by: Ooohfishy
It is recommended to use a pencil or wax marker when writing in the rain, but you can write with a standard ball point pen when it's dry and it will not wash off if the paper gets wet. Water based inks will bead and run off the sheet, so do not ever use gel pens, highlighters, fountain pens or any acrylic.
