Field Notes might take their craft a bit seriously, but in a very good way. The new Field Notes Expedition Notebook is all-weather, waterproof and durable, being printed with Yupo Synthetic paper. For those surprised that there are various types of paper, Yupo Synthetic is created from polypropylene pellets found in Chesapeake, Virginia, and is both waterproof and tear-resistant. Writing down fleeting thoughts (or taking down numbers) in less-than-accommodating weather is now much simpler, and your smartphone is probably all the more grateful. The Field Notes Expedition Notebook comes with a high-visibility orange cover and black backside cover, all with a topographic map of Antarctica subtly varnished on top. Look for the Field Notes Expedition Notebook at select retailers, as well as their online shop.
