The Croquis pocket series...

The Croquis pocket series S 163 is supposed to be ideal with watercolors. I used my water brush on one of the pages and the page immediately buckled and some of the color went through the back onto the next page. I'm not extremely generous with my water because I usually wet my color and put it on the lid of my container. This was using pan watercolors and Micron pens. I'm not too worried about the buckling but I don't like the paper underneath taking on color from the previous page.

Very good for labcoat pockets or scrub pockets. Large enough that there is space for actual meaningful information (and not just 1-2 word phrases on each line), but not too large that it's cumbersome to carry around. The exact right size.

This paper thickness is also ideal - I would compare it to somewhere between 24lb paper and thinner cardstock. It's definitely thicker than regular paper. The lighter paper varieties of this notebook are too thin for me, but others may prever them. I dislike them because even if the ink doesn't transfer to the sheet below, the imprint or indentation will.

This is a GREAT book for Zentangles! The paper is strong and loves my gel pens. Stands up to overwriting without bleed through!

i adoooore this little guy! fits right into my satchel, and it's the perfect size for my morning commutes or when i want to be discreet at work. the grain on it is absolutely perfect for pencil sketching; it doesn't feel waxy or overly smooth, but isn't so grainy that my strokes feel forced. takes calligraphy ink pretty well, too!

This isn't a bad little sketchbook, but from the description, I expected it to hold up better to watercolor. Trying to use a waterbrush to do washes or even light watercolors on the pages resulted in very quick buckling. It is, however, good for most other media I've tried in it.

The description says, "ideal for water color". But that's a lie, unless you don't mind pages wrinklier than the California Raisins. It's not a bad product but if you're looking for a nice sketchbook for your watercolors look elsewhere, though if you want one for pencil this isn't too shabby.

Love it. Don't know how to pronounce Croquis though.

This is a really cute size! I really like to doodle on it with stabilo markers. Only down so far is the paper got super wrinkly the first time I used watercolor on it, but I didn't pay for super high quality water color paper so I'd say it's just fine.

I really like this sketchbook, perfect size to carry around all the time so I am never without drawing material. I will be purchasing one or both of the other ones (ivory and heavier weight paper) in the future.
