Love the Field Journal. The waxed canvas has a classic look and everything is double stitched. I know it’s going to last forever. And I can rewax if needed. The Tomoe River paper is amazing for fountain pens. I like the 69 gsm over the 52 gsm so these refills are perfect.
I spent months looking for the perfect cover for my A5 Stalogy notebook. I couldn't find a cover that was both stiff enough, had pockets, secure closure and a pen loop, until now! It's perfect, I only wish it was available in more colors.
First, I have to say I was so pleased with Lochby's customer service. My Field Journal arrived a mere two days after I placed my order. Then I had a question about my purchase, and the owner, Chris Elfering, got back to me very quickly. Impressed so far! I love this thing. I especially appreciate that it is modular and can fit not only an A5 Journal but inserts as well. This is exactly how I set up my year with a Hobonichi Day Free and inserts. I haven't broken into the insert that came with the Field Journal yet, but it's Tomoe River paper, so I know it's excellent quality. I was drawn to the aesthetic of the brown waxed canvas and orange honeycomb liner as soon as I saw the Field Journal online. The hook is easy enough to master after just a few attempts. Easy open and close, yet secure enough not to open accidentally. The loop fits my thickest fountain pens. Great stuff overall! I'm so pleased that I just placed an order for the Pocket Journal! Thank you, Lochby! :)
I am loving this journal. It's distinctive looking, well-made, and a good size. However, my biggest praise is for Lochby introducing me to Tomoe River paper. OMG!!! I was skeptical about the gsm, expecting bleeding, ghosting, and feathering. This is great paper. I mainly use a Lamy fountain pen, with a fine nib. In my Bullet Journal and Moleskine notebooks, I figured I had to live with bleeding and ghosting. No more. The only thing that would make this discovery sweeter is if dated/undated appointment books were available. Thank you Lochby for making me love paper again.
Have the large and small one. Both are amazing, tough and a great color.
