The Rite in the Rain Tactical Memo Books are bound with a Field-Flex cover. Small and flexible, the memo book is perfect for your pocket. The book is printed on 20# Rite in the Rain, with 112 pages of waterproof, weather-proof paper.
Rite in the Rain says:
Field-Flex is our most flexible cover material. The paper-based stock is tough enough to withstand the harshest and wettest conditions yet can be torn like heavy paper. As it’s paper-based, it can be recycled with other papers. These are some of the best “pocket” books as the covers will conform to your shape in very little time.
Perfect bound books are made by grinding the ends off folded sheets (called signatures) then gluing them to a cover stock. Our perfect bound books use only the most durable glues to ensure your Rite in the Rain book won’t fall apart in the field.
As with most perfect bound books, the text sheet edges are flush with the cover. We take the extra step of round-cornering our books. This improves durability and protects you from annoying sharp corners.
The handy Pocket-Sized Field-Flex Books are great for stowing in tight spots but still large enough to take all your vitals; whether it be an landmark, coordinates, animal sighting, or a phone number, you can trust these little notebooks with the information you gather.
The Rite in the Rain paper works, there's no doubt about that, so that's a good reason to buy this brand of notebook, next though is which format you need. The 954 ans 754 is a small book and small books can be difficult to write in sometimes - this one though has a strong binding that you can bend back on itself so the book can be more or less flat.
The pages are coloured as well as the cover, they have horizontal ruled lines and faint vertical lines so that you can make a grid easily if you wish.
The front inside cover has metric/imperial conversion tables for reference.
76 grams is not much for a notebook with 112 pages - this is a good format if you need to make short notes on lots of different subjects.
