Field Notes Brand Utility Notebook

We’re by no means the handiest bunch when it comes to DIY here at Coolector HQ and, truth be told, we need all the help we can get in this department and that’s why the excellent new offering from Field Notes Brand, the Utility Notebook, looks to be right up our street in terms of making us a good deal more handy and capable.

The Field Notes Brand Utility Notebook is the ideal piece of EDC for anyone who regularly engages in DIY or works in the trade industries because it’s not just great for jotting down measurements and drawing diagrams, it’s also a mighty functional bit of kit that will come in handy all over the place.

Measure Twice, Cut Once

The guys at Field Notes Brand have listened to their customers in the creation of the Utility Notebook and have, for the first time, included two often-requested but not often available body pages: namely, Engineer Graph or Ledger. Engineer Graph features an 1/8-inch grid with bolder lines every half-inch which makes it ideally suited to your schematics, assembly drawings, geometry homework, or, for the D&D inclined, your dungeon maps. The Ledger version, of course, is considerably more handy for things like mileage logs, to-do lists or any sort of handwritten accounting.

A lot more vibrant aesthetically than other notebooks, this Field Notes Brand Utility Notebook boasts  Mohawk’s beautiful vibrant Via Vellum 80# “Safety Yellow” cover which, the DIY enthusiasts amongst you will probably notice, is very similar in colour to the traditional tape measure, which is another nod to the versatility and usefulness of this top class piece of EDC.

The real stand out feature with this latest offering from Field Notes Brand is the new flip-out ruler (inches on one side, centimetres on the other) that folds out from the back cover and provides the perfect tool for making those small measurements on the go. It might just be a small thing but it’s the small things that count when it comes to setting yourself apart from the competition.

Limited Edition Offering

For the handy amongst you that liked what you’ve seen with the Field Notes Brand Utility Notebook, time is of the essence as it is a limited edition offering and won’t hang around on the shelves for long. The quality speaks for itself and the notebook is printed by eDOC Communications in Mount Pleasant, Illinois and is bound with a Heidelberg Stitchmaster ST 270 5-pocket saddle stitcher with cover feeder/scorer.

We love genuinely useful and well made pieces of everyday carry here at Coolector HQ and the Field Notes Brand Utility Notebook definitely falls into that bracket. Ideal for those who have a love of DIY and making diagrams, this is definitely the perfect gift for any handy chap out there.
