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've used a couple of other good Moleskine alternatives purchased at Meijer, Office Depot, and a bookstore a while back. I may have to look into these again, especially if a $7 notebook holds up better than the Moleskine.
If you are looking for a good notebook, one which will serve you well for a long time, there is no need to look any further than Moleskine!
On the more practical side, the paper is high quality. I find that I can use a felt tip pen or even a fountain pen and the ink doesn't blob or soak through. Nice!
The hard back covers really help give a solid base so I can take notes on the fly - sitting or standing. The little rubber strap is a nice touch too. It helps keep loose pieces of paper from getting lost. All in all, it's a well thought out design that is also well executed.
This is a serious note book for serious writing. As we used to say in the '60s, write on!
