Love this item. The layout of pockets is great. Construction quality is as promised. Using A5 Seven Seas journal in it. I would love it in other colors. The olive is a little more masculine than I would like. I think more women would purchase if it was available in additional covers.
This cover is fantastic! My favorite size notebook is A5 and I’ve had a lot of them. I have used leather travelers notebooks with all the pockets for years but never loved the elastic closure. Best closure I’ve tried! The cover is very lightweight yet still quality and luxurious feel. I am a fountain pen enthusiast so the fact that the notebooks they make have Tomoe River paper in them is a HUGE bonus. I am using the cover for my sketchbook which is a Stillman & Birn Alpha Series Softcover. It fits perfectly slipped into the back sleeve and I have one of the Lochby notebooks in the elastic with plenty of room for more notebooks. I love that you can’t see the elastics from the outside spine, you could easily remove them if you wanted to and it wouldn’t leave empty holes like on a travelers notebook. Also customer service was amazing, I had to contact them because I accidentally put in my old address and they responded quickly and fixed the problem. Delivery was super fast despite this pandemic. I would highly recommend this company and notebook cover, can’t wait for the pen roll to be back in stock!
I have to say that the waxed journal cover I have been using gets asked about quite a bit. It not only is a pleasure to use but it’s built like those old school military tents. They could hold up to anything Mother Nature could bring on, I know I spent many a rough night in them. I expect like my 30 year old Filson waxed jacket I will have that journal for many years of writing pleasure.
I have been following Lochby for some time. After finally having a bit of free time, I was able to research the Field Journal cover more in-depth and decided it was exactly what I was looking for. After receiving my cover and having a few weeks to work with it, I can say that it is even better than I had expected. This might sound weird, but this cover has just really inspired me to work more in my journal! Everything from the bright interior, to the rugged exterior speaks to me. I am over the moon happy with this cover and am looking forward to the Tool Roll restock. Thank you Lochby for a job well done.
