I've only had the notebook...
I've only had the notebook for 3 days, but already I am enjoying it! It's nice, lightweight, and the color in real life is fantastic. I'm using it now as a portable writing notebook. I have two A6 notebooks slotted in the cover flaps and accessories, such as index cards, paper clips, and page markers, stashed in the inside pockets.
- Smooth, silky nylon exterior and interior for easy cleaning
-Gorgeous, but unisex orange color
- Sturdy zippers
- Hard, book board-like filler in front and back covers (Seems like it's about 4mm thick? Easy to write with while holding in just one hand, and this filler doesn't bend easily unless a LOT of force is applied.)
-Fits a 400+-page Hobonichi Techo planner perfectly (that's with just one side of the cover slotted in, not both, unless you want to end up adding a permanent crease in the other cover side as you try to force it in.)
There are no real cons that stand out at me. I carry pens separately, but for those who may want to stash a pen/pencil inside the cover, you may have to sacrifice how much notebook bulk you have to get a writing utensil to slot inside without bulking the notebook cover out too much.
The center binding doesn't have much give, and it can only hold a finite amount of paper/notebooks. Let me explain: Trying to fit a book containing 200+ pages of standard weight notebook paper would not work well enough to close the zippers without stress over time (unless, maybe the paper is thin like Tomoe River). So far, I've tried slipping the 80-page refill it comes with in the front slot, 1 50-page Kokuyo A6 notebook in the back cover, and stash in between those 1 70-page Buncobon notebook (all came from Jet Pens), and I had trouble getting the zipper to close. In this case, there was too much bulk at the spine, causing that third notebook to push outward toward the zipper edge. Stacking two notebooks in while having only 1 slotted in the cover flap worked a little bit better, though. Without the 70-page Buncobon, I could close it just fine and was still able to put in other thin bits of accessories in the interior pockets.
With my A6 Hobonichi Techo slotted in the back cover so that I can see the front cover of it when opening the Raymay, I can still fit accessories in the pockets on the inside with no problem.
All in all, I would buy this again. I think the price is/was a bit steep, but I wanted to try it out. I don't regret buying it at all now, and I know I will use it diligently for some time to come!
Thank you for having this item available, Jet Pens!
