I should add Sharpie Ultra Fine point works the best on these. Being left handed I drag all my work onto the page. Pencil works second best but will still smudge. A simple ball point pen will work but it smudged for me. Don't use the Sharpie "pen" it won't dry!. No gel pens either.
1.) Very durable
2.) Doesn't take up much space
3.) Fits in pocket well
1.) Doesn't work with regular pens (smears)
What I dislike about this edition, however, are the pages. I have tried three separate pens on them, including Sharpie pens, and find that all of them smudge. The only thing to stay thus far has been an actual permanent marker and a ballpoint pen (though this smudges also if you don't give it time to dry).
You can guess from this that they do NOT work with the Pilot G2, the king of pens.
So while I appreciate the design, the utility is definitely not for me. I needed a Field Notes that I could scribble in and draw in without having to carry around a specific pen. The purpose of these notebooks (this edition excluded) is, after all, to always have a notebook on hand whenever your thoughts strike you, not to be left stranded in a mire of ink-smeared thoughts because you left a crucial utensil behind.
As much as I like the durability, and as much as I wanted a notebook that would stand the test of time (and the trials of my purse), this was not for me. I purchased another three-pack which should get along with me a little better.
+ tearproof paper
+ waterproof paper
+ sturdy yet thin and easily pocketable
+ dot pattern
- doesn't play well with most writing utensils
- smudges a little
Synthetic inks work best (ballpoint pen), and pencil also comes in. They both smudge a little but like I've said to some of the people who pointed that out: you're essentially trading a little smudging in return to have strongly tear- and water-resistant paper, in a notebook that's gorgeous and doesn't fall apart in a back pocket after 2 weeks (like most of the Field Notes I've had to tape up).
I was very on the fence about buying these; I had been thinking about it for about 4 months, and all the complaints about smudging put me off. But the indestructibility is brilliant and totally worth the smudging.
If you're one of those types who need to have a perfect and pretty pocket notebook to show off your bullet journal on instagram, this definitely isn't for you.
If you need a reliable and hardy notebook to be taken anywhere and that can stand up to abuse, whether dirty hands or bad weather, like me, then it's definitely worth it.
Now, the fun stuff is writing in it and then running it under the sink. That's just fun for me! I want to get the most out of my notebook, so I'm considering storing it in a bucket of water.
It seems to me peoples view of this notebook has a lot to do with what pen/pencil/marker they are using. The number one important thing with this notebook is to make sure you have a companion writing utensil. I feel that when you see the smattering of ratings for this notebook, it all comes down to that. Here is a thorough review by the Pen Addict for you to consider [...] edition where the conclusion is the Uniball Jetstream 0.7mm Pen. I have also seen reviews that recommend a simple bic ball point pen. I suppose that may rub a little, but for what this notebook offers in return, I'm surprised anybody would care that much. I haven't actually tested either of these pens myself.
I have always preferred inky, free-flowing writing utensils like Uniball V-2s or the surprisingly amazing Dollar Tree R2 which would be a total no-go for this notebook. I use a Sharpie Ultra-Fine marker (not pen) and it's terrific. I was worried before the notebooks arrived because reviews tested the pens by letting them dry for a few minutes. I use the sharpie markers and then almost immediately run it under the tap and it turns out great. Well... maybe when I do it IMMEDIATELY it made a slight impression on the opposing page (that doesn't interfere with my writing experience, it is so light)--but I let it dry 0 minutes, so I think that's pretty good.
When I don't do that--for notes I've had in the book for days then run under the tap, I don't notice any impression on the other pages and this involves writing notes then closing the book immediately.
Truly, these notebooks were exactly what I was looking for and have improved my quality of life.
