Last year, I purchased September Leather's larger travel notebook, and absolutely loved it - wonderful leather, great paper inserts that worked wonderfully with every pen, excellent price. I also wanted a smaller version, preferably one that could hold Field Notes and Scout Books, but couldn't find a leather one that size. And now - it's here! September Leather came through! And I couldn't be more pleased with this.
Great, thick leather, very soft, very supple, smells nice (no kidding, it passed the kitty sniff test - he smelled it and didn't express any misgivings). It holds the one notebook that came with it - a VERY nice dot grid notebook (have to find more of those...), but I also added another Field Notes book and a Scout Book, and the result was just what I'd been longing for - a great, very nicely priced, very well-made, Field Notes (or other 5.5 size notebook) traveler's notebook.
September Leather included an elastic cord that you can use to put more than one book in (very simply done - lots of videos on YouTube on how to put 3 books in), or you can use a rubber band if you'd rather. Or you can choose to just use one book inside the cover. But mine is now comfortably holding 3, and possibly could hold 4.
A definite thumbs up, 5 stars, 3 snaps and a circle recommendation on this!
There is nothing quite as stylish as a classic & elegant leather travel journal. This travelers notebook fit Field Notes memo books, or the pocket size Moleskine Cahiers, or any other notepads that are roughly 3.5 x 5.5 inches. The full grain leather cover is supple while still sturdy enough to provide support & protection for your notebooks, and it will develop a beautiful patina over time. A 3.5x5.5" notebook is included to get you started, and you can use the spare elastic band (which is attached) to add up to 3 inserts. Order today and protect your ideas!
