The size (LxW) is perfect because the notebook allows me to put it in my bag's sleeve pocket without really noticing it taking up too much room. Also, the size of the paper always seems to be on point on how much I need to write per entry. The thinness of the notebook also saves space in my bag and prevents it from being too bulky and noticeable as some of the other notebooks that I have used previously. Finally, I love the quality and texture of the cover and the paper. Something about them makes me feel like I am writing in one of those classic adventure notebooks when in reality I am just writing my to-do list for the day.
1) Limited Page Bleed Through / Heavier Stock - I use darker ball point pins and the ink does not bleed through to the reverse side
2) Easy Flexing - Does not require strain to write near the spine (middle) of the notebook / opens nicely so I can use the entire page from edge to edge
3) Quality Construction - Through daily monthly use, pages and spine do not separate.
4) Multiple Sizes - I like the fact I can now get a quality notebook in multiple size to cover different organization needs.
All around a great notebook, even at the elevated price point if you looking for a sturdy organizer that can withstand daily abuse and be your go to, this is it.
I carried these to Afghanistan. Back pocket securely held my orders, pictures of loved ones, etc. Pen jammed into the side, held in place by elastic cord. A must for anyone who writes and travels. There was nothing specific to this product (Ruled soft cover large notebook) that I wouldn't say to praise any other Moleskine product. Except one... buy them before I purchase them all!
The notebook has a soft cover, the pages are lined and spaced evenly. I write in it with a rollerball, or fountain pen and the pages never bleed, nor smear. So overall if you are looking for a gorgeous, comfortable notebook to use in the field, in your travels, or at Starbucks, this is your book.
As for what I do with mine, usually just write lists of dumb things, take pictures of the lists, and send them to people. I hope you put yours to better use.
The packaging it came in was pretty wimpy, too. Just one of those flat bubble wrap packages. This would have been okay with a hard back notebook, but since I ordered the soft paper back, it arrived slightly bent.
I'd probably still order moleskines in the future but I'll definitely get a hardback.
