NEWS – Back in December 2018, I reviewed several products from Bond Travel Gear and was impressed with all of them. Sometime between then and now, Bond Travel Gear metamorphosized into Lochby, a brand with products that appear somewhat similar to Bond Travel Gear’s in design, but have a much more classic, adventurous spirit and style.
Lochby’s products are geared toward creativity and durability. All of their products feature water- and abrasion-rugged waxed canvas with double stitching and bartacking throughout for strong seams, aircraft-grade aluminum hooks, and notebooks that feature high-quality paper.
The Lochby Field Journal is a planner, journal, sketchbook, and anything else you may need to jot down or record. It holds up to six 5.9 x 8.3-inch notebooks and includes several pockets to hold your small essentials, a stout elastic pen loop, and an exterior strap with an aircraft-grade aluminum hook to hold it all together. The Field Journal retails for $39.00.
The Lochby Pocket Journal is an ultra-portable field journal, is a bit like the smaller sibling to the Field Journal. It holds smaller 3.5 x 5.5-inch notebooks and includes a full zipper, and both interior and exterior pockets that can hold pens, a passport, cards, or other small items. The Pocket Journal is priced at $34.00.
The Lochby Tool Roll, while not a notebook like the above products, is classic piece that has been updated to transport our modern tools. It can function as a pen roll, dopp kit, cycling tool kit, artist roll, first aid kit, or whatever your needs and imagination can devise. It features multiple pockets and elastic loops to organize and hold all your items, and top and bottom flaps along with an exterior strap with an aircraft-grade aluminum hook to keep it all secure. Unfortunately, the Tool Roll is not currently available on the Lochby site, but you can sign up for an email notification when it is available again.
Lochby takes pride in the quality of its notebook refills. Featuring fountain pen friendly-Tomoe River 68 gsm white paper and lay-flat stitching, they are available in sizes to fit both the Field Journal and the Pocket Journal, as well as Plan, Ruled, and Dot Grid pages.
