I re-newed my Field Notes subscription going back a few weeks. I just love collecting Field Notes. Like many others who read this, I too have a stack of Field Notes now, more so than I probably need or will ever use, but, I have started a collection and I will feel weird to stop. So I renewed my subscription to continue for another year of collecting these great notebooks. I also enjoy the feeling of receiving a package in the mail every so often throughout the year. It is always a surprise. And this time around I was surprised by the new packaging the Field Notes subscription came in!
- The raw feeling of the cardboard is nice.
- Why doesnt the ruler fold over the pages like a bookmark?
- Nice sending one pack of each a ledger and a graph.
I have finally started using my Field Notes as my catch all notebooks that I keep in my pocket now when I am at work. They fit nicely in my back pocket and age well in there too. I finished one of my Black Ice editions the other week and due to the weather here in Sydney (rain every day) I switched it out to Expedition to withstand the water that leaks through my backpack. It has also been a great little show off item at work watching people trying to rip the pages or wet my notebook.
I really love the look of how the Black Ice edition has worn. Being my first Field Notes that I have just let be in my pocket, I am now excited to see how the other editions will wear! I can already see the fading/scuffing of the Expedition edition and am amazed how well the cover is keeping up in my pocket.
