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.

As the title states, I love it, but with slight hesitation. To clarify, I love Field Notes as a brand. They make amazing little notebooks that are durable (not just this edition, all of them are durable, at least, in my experience) that enabled me to do something I've never been able to do: journal. I have tried for years to journal regularly. I don't know what it is about these small notebooks that make it less daunting of an experience. If I had to guess, it's due to the smaller amount of pages.
When I was trying to use a Moleskine, I felt like I had to fill it. It seemed like a huge, daunting commitment that I wasn't ready for so I'd get like two days in and quit. With these, I've journaled a solid week, for every day, and have yet to slow down. What makes these great for journaling is that they are small and light enough to sit in your back pocket. You always have it, and it is within reach. I love that about Field Notes. Currently I use one for journaling and the other is just for random notes or doodles when I'm bored.
Moving on to this Expedition edition specifically, it was hard to find a pen that worked on them. If you go to this link: [...] Field Notes explains how this isn't 'normal' paper and that not every writing instrument will work, which is annoying, but it's a trade off for the amazing feature of waterproof notes.
I recommend buying these notebooks along with this pen: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001E103CY?[...]
This pen is amazing and the ink doesn't smear on this version of Field Notes like my beloved papermates.
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.
