DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Just as black is always in style, so are these Pitch Black Field Notes memo books. Minimalistic yet polished, the beauty of black is in the details. The covers are 100-lb French "Blacktop" with "Stealth Gray" text, and the books are bound with shiny black staples to match. Inside, the 50-lb Finch Opaque Smooth pages are printed with a light gray dot grid. The covers and pages inside are acid-free. These memo books will go with everything from a classy suit to an old leather jacket, so you can take them everywhere you go.

Like other Field Notes books, these are durable and flexible, designed to survive any pant pocket. They are bound with a rugged three-staple saddle-stitch process. Inside the front cover, you can write in your contact information and, with a sense of humor, indicate whether or not the person who returns your lost book will be rewarded. The inside back cover lists "practical" applications for the memo books such as #03, "Ninja Skills Acquired". The Field Notes story and further specifications are also presented. The books are manufactured and printed in the USA.

This pack includes 3 memo books, each containing 48 pages (24 sheets).

These little notebooks...
December 3, 2015

These little notebooks get a lot of hype due to clever marketing, high profile reviews and collectability. They are certain very usable and portable, as well. I found that the covers could not survive long enough in my back pocket to get filled up before falling apart, and the paper quality falls well short when using liquid ink rollerballs and fountain pens. They just don't suit my needs.

These are great notebooks, the binding is very secure and the paper is excellent for pencil, ballpoint, gel ink, and even markers. The covers are very rugged hence the name Field Notes. They are made to last until they are full without falling apart, and they do. I just finished my last one about a month ago and had to order more and I cannot recommend the dot grid pages enough. They are a great substitute for lines and helpful for sketching diagrams also.

The least mentioned fact about the Field Notes books is that they are only about 3 mm thick and flexible which means that they will go practically unnoticed in any pocket or bag. Once you start using them you will wonder how you ever survived without them. One recommendation for these Pitch Black ones is to get either a Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Ink Pen - White Ink or the Uni-ball Signo Angelic UM-120AC Gel Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - White Ink to go with these to fill in the inside of the cover since the Signo white ink shows up perfectly on these.

Understated elegance and wonderful paper to use with my new Blackwing Pearl pencils. It takes ink well also. The size is very convenient and I really like the matte black cover stock. This is an easy "every day carry" item which fits in a pocket or purse and is always at the ready. I will buy more of these!

This was my first experience with a dot grid. To be honest when I first ordered them, I didn't even realized it would be a dot grid, and panicked, trying to cancel my order when I found out. Eventually I just let it ship and when I received them I was happy. The dot grid is genius and I love the freedom and guidance it gives you.

The only issue I have with this memo book is that my fountain pens do bleed through a bit. It's not too much but enough that it makes the back sides of the pages unusable for me.

These are lovely. The dot grid is great, if you don't like grids or lines but are too sloppy on blank pages, try it. A good alternative to the orange "Expedition edition", if you don't want the synthetic paper.
