I love this pen! I'm currently studying for major state-regulated exams right now, but I'm also on these meds that causes all my joints to hurt (and quite often dislocate). Writing with my normal hard pens (and even typing at times) makes my fingers hurt horribly and sometimes causes the second knuckle of my middle and pointer fingers to randomly begin to dislocate (IT'S LITERALLY A NIGHTMARE FOR ME RIGHT NOW).

I ordered this pen literally 2 weeks prior to having to take the unexpected medication, and this pen has turned out to be an amazing blessing I did not expect.
I can actually study and take notes with my fingers and wrists hurting for a couple hours at a time!!!! Good thing I ordered two. I have one filled with black ink and the other with blue ink. The squishiness of the grip + the smooth signo ink = a true godsend for someone like me.

As much as I love retractable clicker pens so I don't have to worry about losing the cap, the Signo UM-151 in 0.5 is the smoothest, most reliable, and most visually pleasing ink and body amongst all the pens I've used (Zebra Sarasa 0.3, Hi Tec C 0.4, Signo 207 0.5 & 0.38, Jetstream 0.7 & 0.5, Uni Style Fit 0.38).
This blue is bright (unlike Sarasa's blue which is oddly closer to navy or blue-black) without looking silly. I look forward to using this pen for many years to come and just continuing with refills.

I love the Field Notes...

I love the Field Notes Expedition edition. The paper is kind of plasticky, which means it's not suitable for most pens. If I'm writing with a pen, it's either Sharpie (pen or marker) or a ballpoint pen (which kind of smears). So why do I love this pocket notebook if I can't use gel or ballpoint pen without smeariness?
Because it's wonderful to write in with pencil (I use HB lead). It does kind of smear, but you can always erase - unlike a pen/Sharpie.
I have a tendency to often erase and re-write something else in the same place multiple times. If you re-write and erase a piece of paper multiple times, the sheet starts to tear apart slowly and the next thing you know there's a whole in the paper.
Also, I have this terrible habit of often spilling drinks on/in my bags (I get lazy about carrying my tea tumbler so it goes into my bag sometimes), so no paper survives the ordeal. BUT FIELD NOTES EXPEDITION DOES. So if you're clumsy like me, this is the perfect notebook for you. :] I gotta (more like wanna) buy more although they're quite long-lasting and have been withholding my multiple "erase only in this one spot" beatings that I may not need to buy more.

Lavvv this. Like the previous reviewer stated, this California State FN memo book's cover is of thicker stock. Not like "WHOA THAT'S THICK" but it's noticeably more durable than the regular FN memo book's covers. I turned one into a planner/scheduler (monthly) and I love it. I've given up on the other famous 3x5 notebook brand due to the paper quality being quite flimsy, and will continue buying Field Notes instead.
