Field Notes

What We Like about Field Notes

It’s easy to be a Field Note’s fan. Their notebooks are meticulously designed, they source and print all their products in the U.S., and—maybe the best part—their original design inspiration came from the old promotional memo books distributed to American farmers by seed and tractor companies. Field Notes co-founder, Aaron Draplin, has been collecting these old pocket-sized books for years, “rescuing them” from obscurity. Field Notes is his tribute to this uniquely American print tradition. As for us, it would be hard to choose a favorite Field Notes notebook; but if we had to pick one, it would be the tear-proof, waterproof, and nearly indestructible Expedition Journal. A close second would be the iconic Kraft Memo Book.

What you do with a Field Notes notebook is up to you. Use it at as a travel journal. Sketch out your million dollar idea. Compose a haiku. The options are endless. But this much is certain—your ideas couldn’t be chronicled in a better place than in a Field Notes notebook.
