I used to buy all the limited edition Field Notes releases, including the
National Crop Edition, but this is the last set I'll buy. The paper is just too
thin and poor quality to use with fountain pens. For truly good paper quality
there are better choices like Clairefontaine and Rhodia. In comparison, Field
Notes seems more like a lifestyle brand capitalizing on the nostalgia trend.

I like the idea behind the Fields Notes Brand, but they are more like a novelty
item, no doubt the materials are top notch, but the brand works most because of
nostalgia than because it is useful.
The memo books itself are of the appropriate size for a pants pocket, but the
paper and cover itself aren't as durable. They have a very resistant edition in
their catalog though.
This set was very delightful, the information included in each notebook was very
interesting, so was the poster.

I love field notes notebooks. I love this edition because it brings back the
feeling of a time when the US was proud of it's farms and produced it's own
food, when buying local was the only way you could buy! These are great little
notebooks I use for everything, and this set has a lot of history and spirit.

Field Notes are great! This special edition is lovely. I've written on it with
pencil, gel pen, fountain pen. No problems. A perfect memo book. Major issue
with these is remembering to take them out of your pocket so you don't send them
through the laundry...

Thus far, no problem using this product with a fountain pen. I have tried both a
Sheaffer 444 and a Pilot Prera with these pads. The Prera seems to do better,
but it is Japanese fine, so it is more like writing with a gel, etc. These pads
will probably not like a medium or broad fountain pen nib. I was happy with the
series packaging and the set.
Definitely not Clairfontaine but I like them.
