NEWS – Is a pocket notebook part of your EDC (Everyday Carry) and do you keep the notebook in your back pocket? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then check out the Slimbo pocket notebooks. At first glance, you might think they are like other Field Note style pocket notebooks, but you would be wrong. First of all, they are 3.75 x 5.25 inches which is not what pocket notebook fans have come to expect as the standard pocket notebook size of 3.5 x 5.5 inches. The Slimbo notebooks also feature more pages. 64 vs. 48 pages and lighter weight paper at 70 GSM vs. 90 GSM paper that Field Notes uses. But the biggest difference between typical pocket notebooks and Slimbo notebooks is the rounded bottom edge that allows the notebook to sink farther down in your back pocket. Is that subtle design change important? You be the judge. If you would like to try these notebooks, then head over to okslimbo.com where they are $9.95 for a pack of 3.
