The squared paper is really nice, and light enough to not be a bother when writing or pops out and makes everything too much to read.
The paper is a nice cream color. which is really easy on the eyes. Depending on your pen/marker, of course, it doesn't seem to bleed through the other side of the paper, which is a D-R-E-A-M! I wrote August in with a prismacolor marker and THAT bleed through, but those are really art markers that require thicker paper, so there's that. I posted photos of the backsides of some pages to show you :) The second to last is that back of 005 prismacolor art pens, muji pens, and pilot 05 pen :)
The quality of the binding is really swell, really durable and the expandable pocket is great for note cards or things of the sort, I haven't tried cramming anything in there, but I'll test that out later.
The band that wraps around the book is great too, its not too stretchy, doesn't feel like it would stretch out and fall off, yet at the same time just enough give to enclose the book. Lovely!
My favorite thing about it is the edges are evenly seamed along with the size of the paper, check out my photos to get my meaning.
I bought my boyfriend a white ruled journal, also from the classic collection, and the covers jut out just a bit longer than the pages themselves.
Overall, just buy it already!!!!! :)
Dimensions are - Dimensions: 5" x 8-1/4"
It has a little rubber band to keep the book closed.
Very classy and just the right size for taking on the road with you.

I got this notebook to use for work, and my tablet is now permanently relegated to watching movies on planes and listening to music.
The notebook feels great, my pen moves well on it (Sharpie Fine Point Pen) and I keep it in a Saddleback Leather Moleskine Case. Both of those items are also available from Amazon.
An added benefit is that I am apparently being more thoughtful about what I write down: this notebook deserves to be filled with something worthy!
However, one drawback that will prevent me from buying this product again is that the grid lines are too dark. I tend to write in (mechanical) pencil so the grid lines on this product are too over barring (for my taste). The ruled journal has lighter lines but for some reason the Squared Notebook's grid lines are dark such that they make it notably more difficult to read your own writing (or sketches).
Not sure why the grid lines need to be so dark but I would really enjoy this product if the grid lines were much lighter.
Size: It's large enough to take notes, make sketches, jot down thoughts, etc., yet it is compact enough to pack it around with me.
Squared: I know this isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I like the versatility of taking notes and drawing some diagrams to go with it. I'm not an artist by any means, so the grid keeps by untrained hand in check.
Paper: I use a ball point pen (Uniball Jetstream 0.7) and I haven't had any problems with bleeding or tearing. The color is off-white, so it doesn't hurt my head while concentrating.
Quality: I've had a few of these now, and I've never had a problem with pages falling out, binding coming apart, etc. The book just does what it needs to do.
If you are on the fence at all about this notebook, do yourself a favor and buy it.
