I recently used my weatherproof journal for the first time cycling rough terrain and through a couple of thunderstorms in the south of Madagascar. The journal, after jotting down most experiences in almost all weather conditions, and after 8 days and 40 pages later, still looks exactly like the day I bought it - that is new. Not one smudged or faded page. I love this product - it's rekindled my writing interest in addition to being a very useful way to ensure those memories on life's less traveled roads are not lost. And its funky yellow plastic cover ensures you never have to squint or look around much capturing that golden moment led by inspiration! Fantastic product I can fully reccommend it.
This is the size I carry in my pocket everywhere I go. The paper is clean and contrasts well for reading pencil or BLACK ink. The spiral is the toughest I have ever found in this type of notebook and I have never had one tear, split, or spread. The paper stays usable wet, cold (-40), and hot (120+). The edges of the paper will show wear and have slight warping when exposed to water. This does not affect notes taken and the paper is still usable. NOTE: Remember, waterproof paper is only HALF the answer. If you write with normal ink it will still run when it gets wet (and will probably smear on this paper anyway since inks are water-based). Use a Rite in the Rain pen or a pencil to record your notes and keep them "weather-proof".
I really love this rite in the rain journal. It works just as advertised. I used a pencil when I wrote in mine. Just know that you can't really erase the pencil on this paper like you can on normal paper. It just kind of smudges the graphite around and doesn't really remove it.
Overall the 4x6 Rite in the Rain note pads are a good investment and a great business tool
PROS: good looking paper, feels right, nice weight. writing surface works well when wet, no stains from rain/water. notepad binding is glossy black painted wire - looks professional arrived in great shape, perfectly flat, absolutely no bending BONUS: works great in the shower CONS: no Bluetooth? Seriously, no cons so far. Will keep buying these journals.
Hi - I bought this to write in golf notes for when I am on the golf course, I can reference it. For example things I should take into account on a down hill lie, up hill lie etc. It's waterproof and even though I haven't gotten wet using it yet, I have confidence all the hard work I've put into writing notes won't be lost. I can tell by touching the paper its not your standard paper. I recommend it to anyone.
Waterproof is awesome, the only major flaw is if you work in emergency services you must work outside and that means in the rain.... if it is raining on you the ink doesn't stick to the waterproof paper thus you cannot write anything down
One thing write in the rain misses in its pitch is sweat. In the desert you sweat no doubt about it. That will turn your note book to mush in ur pocket or at least warp it. This was my everyday chore and historic observation note book in egypt, loved and never left the Apartment with out it.
I baught the all weather pocket journal to keep a log of the raptors (eagles & hawks) I see while I am kayaking. Obviously I need a water resistent paper to do that. It works great combined with a fisher pen.
