I was a die-hard Moleskine guy. Not anymore, these ecosystem journals are all I use.

Here's why:
- All the features of the Moleskine are there. Excellent quality of product - crisp paper, clean lines, good binding, etc. So, they are at least "as good" as Moleskine's
- What sets them apart for me are the perforated pages that make it so easy to remove a page. I never knew I needed this feature, but now that I have it I use it all the time. I am a list guy, so now all of my lists can be taken out and scanned into Evernote. I am a mind-map guy... now all my scheming from a brainstorm can be taken out and... scanned into Evernote for safe keeping. Sometimes I write something down on a page that I don't particularly want to leave in the book lest someone take a peak... no problem... out comes the page. I would say 8/10 pages still stay in the journal, but for those times you need a page out... it is so handy.

So that's my one big reason I love the ecosystem line. If it sounds good to you... go for them, enjoy!

As a long time Moleskine loyalist I was skeptical but I liked the Made in the USA and recycled story so gave it a shot. Very glad I did! A couple differentiators that matter to me:
- Made in the USA
- Recycled materials (with cool code to show my kids as a teachable moment about recycling)
- About a half inch narrower than Moleskine but just as tall which I like because they fit in my bag and are just a little easier to handle.
- The cover is matte black as opposed to the shinier Moleskine

I use these types of notebooks for work and go through about a notebook a month. I use the Lamy Vista Fountain Pen Demonstrator, Clear Fine Nib (L12F) on these and the ink does not bleed through as the paper is thick enough. Great combo.

I do love the Moleskine ivory paper as opposed to this bright white but on balance these are my new go to.

Even in our Digital Age (or should one say, especially in our Digital Age?), there is no more valuable daily tool than a bound journal.

There are many choices. They tend to fit somewhere on a spectrum between permanence (bound, hardcover) and evanescent (spiral notebook).

This product is good because it can meet a range of possible uses. It is beautifully bound. So one can use it as a book, to be preserved accordingly.

At the same time, because the pages are tear-away (though subtly so, almost beyond notice), it can be used to transfer ideas and thoughts to other media (e.g. through scanning). Or, one can simply remove pages in some cases, while maintaining journal's use as a more permanent record.

All this is accomplished with recycled paper of uncompromisingly high quality.

I'm carrying this journal as a sturdy companion, along with my iPhone and other digital tools. I recommend it highly to others.

Got this for journaling and it's a fantastic notebook. Cheaper than Moleskine and seems to be just as nice of a notebook. For some reason the whole number-registration thing on their website doesn't seem to work any more, though.

I bought this because it is more eco-friendly than Moleskine and had perforated pages. Didn't hurt that it was cheaper either. I got mine for around $10-$11. One thing I noticed as I looked it over before cutting off the plastic film was a bunch of shiny spots on the cover. The cover apparently can't stand things being compressed into it such as the shrink wrap, the paper information wrapper on the left side or the cover band on the right side. These all left shiny marks on the cover. The cover band that holds it shut feels a bit cheaper than that of a Moleskine and is a lot more textured, thus it left more of a mark on the cover. Even the barcode sticker on the outside of the plastic film left a shiny impression on the cover. I assume this is from being stacked in a warehouse for shipping.

I haven't written in it yet but the pages are nice and white and I honestly think I like them more than the yellowish ivory of Moleskine. I compared it side by side with my Moleskine planner and the quality isn't too bad. The cover obviously isn't the best when it can be marked by the packaging, and like I said the strap is a bit iffy to me. Overall I would get this again, but maybe at a store so I could pick out ones that don't have a marked cover. Since it is just for school and stuff, not a big deal. For business though, the marked up cover may look a little bothersome if you care about appearances. That being said, this may very well only be the one I got since this is the first one I've ever bought. Can't seem to rub off the shiny marks or anything so that is why I have it only 4 stars. If it had a better cover and better band, it'd be a 5.

I would recommend it to others probably. Also, fair warning. I believe the feature of checking your book ID with the website was discontinued.

I love the idea of supporting products made in the USA. Their affiliation with Barnes and Noble surprised me but it made me all the happier with my purchase.

Disappointing though is the fact they've discontinued their notebook tracking system. I must have received some older stock as my notebook does indeed have a unique ID printed on the back page. When I went to the website to register I found no way to do so. A quick e-mail to customer service had me reading a reply stating they had discontinued the program.

I know this feature had been advertised and was only 2% of the reason I chose this notebook however it does seem a bit of false advertising was (is?) at play.

The notebook itself is built very well and features the same features you'd expect from the Chinese made "Italian" all virgin material competitor.
