The "dot-grid" books are just that: each page has parallel rows of dots that can be used as lines or graph paper, making for a very versatile page for taking notes or drawing sketches. The black covers stand up well to abuse in my rear pockets, only occasionally showing some damage. The covers are made from 100 pound paper, and the inside paper is a heavy 50 pound bond. Whatever writing utensil I use (pen, pencil, and sometimes marker) does not smear or bleed through, and while the paper is not waterproof, a few large raindrops don't seem to affect the ink or the paper.
While more expensive than similar size notebooks at WalMart or Staples, they do stand up to punishment better and definitely look nicer when you whip it out.
Only con with this one (well, maybe not really a con): the inside of the cover, where you are supposed to write your name and contact info, also is black. I needed to use a silver permanent marker to add my info.
Finally, for a really good-looking Field Note book, check out their "Shelterwood Edition" with covers made from real wood. Pretty sure they wouldn't hold up as well in my back pocket, though.
It's not one big thing, but a lot of little things that make these great. They are thin and flat, and easily slip in and out of my back pocket when I'm out in the field. If I forget and leave my Field Notes in my back pocket when I sit down, they are flexible enough to bend and conform so it isn't uncomfortable or jarring, and the notebooks are sturdy enough to handle that stress. The printing for the grids and lines is clear enough to be a visual guide, but light enough to fade to the background if you write big or sketch over it. The inside back cover is a quirky list of "Practical Applications" (things you can use the notebook for), along with a breakdown of how the notebook was made (Made in the USA, if you're curious).
I also like the 48-page length (that's counting front and back) -- it's long enough without being too long. I've used notebooks with nearly twice as many pages, but in my opinion, that's too many notes for a single notebook, and it becomes cumbersome to find things that I've written. When I near the end of a Field Notes notebook (after filling it with notes), it feels like a very natural point to switch to a new notebook. (Your mileage may vary on that point.)
I really like the classic brown Field Notes covers, but the seasonal "Colors" editions make for a nice change of pace -- I go thru several notebooks a month, so it's nice to switch back-and-forth between standard and special editions.
As an engineer student, I stayed with a notebook in my backpack or purse. Now as an engineer, I need a notebook that I can keep with me at all times. Something small enough to fit into my pocket or tool belt, something durable enough to stand up to being in said pocket. I've also found that it's great purse notebook, as it's fit perfectly in the pockets of many of my purses as well as my smallest clutches while still leaving space for my albeit small smart phone. Any woman who's tried to stuff a smart phone and other necessities into a clutch know where I'm coming from.
It works well with pencil (regular or mechanical) ballpoint, or gel pen (Bic .7 MM Blue and Black Gel pen my office keeps in stock), no bleed through. Sometimes with my .9 draft pencils and the way I bare down I get a bit of "imprint" but I can still use both sides of the paper and it generally smooths out. Its thickness I also noticed works well with the clip of most of my pens and mechanical pencils so I can keep them together and always have a writing instrument. This is particular useful for the one I use as a fitness log.
People compare the number of pages (48) with moleskine and general variety notebooks. I've never really used moleskine so I can't speak to that but I think the durability of the notebook while good probably wouldn't fare as well if it had say 80 pages. I'm a pretty concise writer and use different books for different uses (general work, special big projects, fitness,etc). I enjoy using this notebook.
The dot grid pattern is the main reason I purchase this edition.Read more ›
