I ordered some of these a couple weeks ago; can't wait to see them in person.

Might even use these as a giveaway on my fly fishing site. I think my readers will love the look of the thigns...

I like Field Notes' design - grid paper, covers...but they're going to have to put more paper inside or come down on price on the current product if they want to win a wider following...

very true moleskines chier have 60 some pages, and are 3 for 7.95,

Not nearly as sturdy as a Cahier.

One could even construe a sad parallel here. Made in the USA means thin stock used for covers, stapled rather than stitched binding, fantastic visual design and a higher price. My dad used to say " A shiny turd is still a turd." A bit much for describing these, but appropo nonetheless.

With the look of these I had truly hoped they would take the place of my Cahiers. The idea is there, but the execution rates a B-...Passing, but still not all that is possible.

Can't say how much I love the idea as a whole (againg that graphic design by Draper et. al. is awesome!), but having held one, would not be willing to part with the 10 spot plus shipping for 'em...

I know Draper and got several of these as Xmas freebies last year -- they're great, and if you take a lot of notes (as I do), then you fill them up fast! I love going over them later to see what I was up to. They also invite serious lust from anyone who sees me using them -- the graph-paper pages are the best part.

Way to go, guys!

Agree with most reviews about them being expensive and easy to fill up. You can read a detailed review here: http://www.livebikework.com/?p=182
