Sometimes you just need to get things down on paper. Field Notes are there for when you’re out and about, whether that’s on a road trip, in a bar, or exploring a new city. With a vintage design inspired by agricultural memo books of the early 20th century, these journals are small and flexible enough to fit in a back pocket. The set also comes with a pair of colorful retro clic pens so you’re prepared whenever inspiration strikes.
I want too happy to get notepads, but I will enjoy it on my bedside. It is honestly a 2$ pad or less and the cheapest pens they could find. At least give quality things If it is something this bland1
While I rarely have a use for writing on paper in the year 2014, I do occasionally enjoy scribbling on a notebook. I do already have a product I like, but for free these will do. As for the pens, you can't be serious, right? As someone who subscribes to a premium service for products to improve my quality of life, you think I'd want the same type of click ball-points you get free in a bank? Notebooks are acceptable if they were free, pens are worthless even if they were free.1
This is something I got in my box, I'm not happy. This is not something I want or would ever use.1
I was really disappointed with the field notes with "retro" pen (read cheapest pen on the market). For someone who actually takes notes on the fly, or writes travel notes, etc, I would suggest sticking with the classic Moleskine pocket notebook. My field note samples and retro pens have found their way to the telephone for jotting phone numbers, along with all the other scratch pads that I receive through the mail as "gifts" from charities. Certainly not worth the price1
It is paper and pens nothing special. I much rather take notes on my ipad.1
I bought the birch box subscription (year) for my husband as part of his birthday present. He got this in his first delivery. When he opened the box, he looked at me in disbelief. Seriously, what man is gonna want these pads and cheap pens? He will plans to leave them in his car, and use whenever. However, he would never purchase this product. The downfall of this product is the pens. If the pads where combined with great pens, that could be a selling point!1
I think am rating this so low because I don't really find it useful. If I need to write a quicknote I just put it into my phone. Why carry a notebook with me? Maybe someone who like little notebooks would like this item!2
I was surprised to find this in my Birchbox. These memo books are nice as far as memo books go, but in the end it's still just a pad of paper.
I would not purchase only because the price is a little too high. I would consider if the books contained about twice as many pages as they do -- but they don't.
Also, while I appreciate that the pens look nice, they are somewhere between standard and sub-par as far as quality, which I find surprising considering the price. I would hope that they would be at least as good as the Bics I have laying around everywhere.
I've never had to use a journal in my life, and I don't really need one, what with my phone and all...But, I suppose it doesn't hurt to have this laying around in the car, or house, just in case I suddenly have a poem to write.2
These notebooks don't seem to be anything special to me.2
