Like many others have said, it is the perfect size. However, the pages are thinner than regular printer paper. This should not even be advertised as a sketch book. The paper is not even remotely art quality. I'm not one to write reviews, and I wont be returning it because I should have taken the time to more carefully read through the reviews, but I want to stop others from making the same mistake I did. I've ordered smaller moleskine sketchbooks before and didn't have the same issue with paper quality.
The cover is durable, doesn't get scratched easily, and Ive never had on tear on me. I love that the paper is tan rather than white, I don't tend to get eyestrain even after extended periods of drawing or writing. My only concern is that I would have the paper be slightly heavier, it can bleed through slightly on occasion. The extra large size is perfect for my needs, just small enough to not be unwieldy, though I would prefer that one was made this size, with twice as many pages.
I tend not to use the back pouch often, more because I forget Ive put things there than for any lack of functionality. But I love the bookmark (very useful for marking pages with important reminders) and elastic closure.
As my husband likes to tell me, $13 IS pricey for a notebook, but this notebook is pretty much my life, and they tend to last me a good 4-6 months before I run out pages, so I feel that I'm getting sufficient value for the money.
I do not recommend this to people who only occasionally jot things down, but I think anyone who finds themselves in daily need of a note or sketchbook will be well pleased,
If you're new to this world, some thoughts on this model: due to its large size, the book as a whole is very flexible. The pages are thick enough that you can write with a pen of average weight on one side and it will not bleed through. There is a pocket on the back cover that is great for storing flat mementos.
Having stated this negative, it is the only one I have for this book. It has a soft cover, is plain and unobtrusive looking, and it comes with all the "accessories" I want in a journal: a ribbon bookmark, an attached elastic band to keep it closed, and a folder in the back to put extras in. It also has a good number of pages, and most important for me, comes in this unlined version.
So the book has thin pages but comes closer to perfection than any other notebook I've found. I think with some of us though, the very particular ones, the only way to obtain our idea of a perfect journal would be to make it ourselves. For those in this same demographic that are too lazy to do so, this Moleskine, for me at least, comes close enough.
