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.
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
Like the title says it is just 3 small note pads and 2 cheap ink pens2
I have a ton of pens and notepads. I don't really spend $20 a month to receive something like this as one of my monthly samples.2
I received this today and one of the pens are already in my trash can. I was a little disappointed because my first gadget was a Harry's razor, so I was looking forward to the next one and it's kind of a let down. Really liked my other stuff, but this just isn't for me.2
When I first saw the "retro" pens included, I literally had a visceral shudder. Though my wife and I did get a great laugh remembering how the pens would spontaneously pop apart and fly into a million pieces, or - if screwed too tightly - crack like eggshells, forcing you to use a lobster-claw-like-grip to scratch out your message with the shattered pen husk. I left all that in the 80s and not looking to reminisce.2
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
