Right off the bat, you can tell that this is a well-made journal. It's very sturdy with crisp pages, a nice elastic band, and a handy bookmark that I've tugged on a couple of times (unintentionally) and it has stayed. The pages have very little bleed-through with ink despite the fact that they are so thin. I'm also a fan of the yellowed look. The warmness of that color under lamplight makes writing in this journal relaxing. I have literally traveled around the world with this journal in my bag and despite all the jostling and cramming, it has maintained its shape perfectly.
There is no doubt that Moleskine makes high-quality journals, but I won't give it five stars because I still think it is overpriced compared to comparable journals on the market if you are willing to do a little digging. Plus, the first page drives me a little crazy because about a quarter inch of it is stuck to the second page making it a pain to write on those first couple of pages since they do not fold down properly. I realize this is nitpicking a little bit, but I feel like this is something that could be easily avoided in manufacturing.
If you have a couple of extra dollars to spend on a journal, get this and don't think twice. If you want to be more frugal, shop around a bit, but you can't go wrong with this notebook.
I use gel ink pens (Uniball Signo) and there is a small timeline needed for the ink to dry to prevent spearing. You can see writing through the page, but it is not disruptive in any way. I have tried the smaller/medium size one with a fountain pen...do not use a fountain pen with these, or make sure you experiment with different inks, as it absorbed the ink in a very sufficient manner in my trials.
The paper quality is good, and although I can see that I have written on the other side of the page, the ball-point ink, from a variety of different pens, doesn't bleed through enough to be a problem. The lines printed on the page are dark enough to be seen but not obtrusive. Some of my journals, in comparison, have ruled lines so light I often wander off the lines when writing. I like to be able to see the lines!
Three really good features are the handy pocket in the back (I just checked it to write this review and found I had stashed a Lottery ticket in there.... maybe this is my lucky day!) I also like that it has both an elastic band and a ribbon bookmark so you can always find your place.
For the journals and notebooks I only keep at home I prefer a more decorative look. But when I am out in public my plain black notebook makes me look like I mean serious business!
Just a note: the book is pictured with its yellow jacket around the middle. This is confusing as the book itself is actually plain black.
