Item ships in 1-2 business days

  • 17th Quarterly Edition, Winter 2021
  • Virtually indestructible.

Aesthetically, you’ll find a design with plenty to like: a hi-visibility “Antarctic Survey Orange” front cover and “Polar Night Black” back cover, with a subtle varnish effect featuring a topographic map of Antarctica. The body pages feature Field Notes' popular dot-graph paper printed in light gray.

But the real innovation here is the paper. It’s maybe not even fair to call it paper. The whole book is printed on Yupo Synthetic paper, an amazing tearproof and waterproof paper extruded from polypropylene pellets in Chesapeake, Virginia. Field Notes verified the the notebooks’ durability and incredible properties in a series of 12 (reasonably) scientific tests. Hopefully

Test 1: WATERPROOFING
Test 2: VISIBILITY
Test 3: WIND RESISTANCE
Test 4: BALLISTICS
Test 5: VACUUM
Test 6: TENSILE STRENGTH
Test 7: COMPRESSION
Test 8: ACID RESISTANCE
Test 9: FLAME RESISTANCE
Test 10: EXTREME TEMPERATURE
Test 11: ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES
Test 12: ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE

DANGER: These memo books offer reasonable protection against being destroyed themselves by ballistics. They will not protect you. NOT TO BE USED AS PERSONAL PROTECTIVE GEAR OR BODY ARMOR.

Note: Synthetic paper is nonporous and does not absorb ink like conventional papers. Ballpoint pens, pencils, or fine tip Sharpies work best.
