Best Use Casual
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great field journal This is the best little field journal out there. Combine this with the Fisher space pen (REI Item 691132) and you will have a nearly invincible journal. I've used it in Greenland well below freezing, in the rain in Patagonia, in the hot southern California desert and literally tried it underwater with the Fisher and it worked perfectly. I used to use pencil but found that as you rub your hand on the pencil, it does turn a little hazy. My journals that I was careful with written with pencil are still readable 10 years later. My pen written journals are perfect 7 years later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for rugged outdoor use I used this during my 135 mile backpack on the Appalachian Trail. It rained almost two thirds of the trip, sometimes for days on end. Everything I owned was wet and soggy but I could still journal every day without worrying about ruining the paper. It was awesome! Not too heavy, either. I was concerned that the spiral would get ruined because of all the rough treatment I threw its way, but it held its shape and the wires never pulled loose or got caught on anything. Inside, the lines were spaced just far enough apart, similar to a college ruled loose leaf. I liked the unobtrusive dotted vertical lines that allowed the journal to be used as graph paper if needed. I highly recommend this book for rugged outdoor use. I'm ordering another for my next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freaking Sweet I was on a hike on the Kalalau trail in Kauai for a college class. Sitting in the cave at the end of the beach, freak wave out of no where. Everyone's stuff get soaking wet, everyone's journals as well. Mine was the only one to survive, and with perfectly legible writing after getting completely soaked. Make sure you use a pencil or waterproof pen though or else it's no good. About to go on another trip and you can bet im buying another one of these to keep my journals in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes working in the rain possible. For work, I have to constantly take notes outdoors in the Washington elements and this product is perfect for the job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Short time use. If you journal a lot these go very quick for the price. I used 3/4 of this book in 8 days. I was taking notes and journaling every day for work. I used borh sides of each sheet. Depending on the ink that is used it will smear with rain or moisture. This size should be more like $2-3.
