Limestone based paper

Modestone's limestone based paper is pretty neat. In comparison to Rite-in-the-rain this stuff is stronger and absolutely 100% waterproof, you can have a piece submerged for months without it taking any damage! It is also extremely resistant to wrinkling. A really neat feature is the fact that on top of the usual pens and pencils you can also use metal such as keys or bullets to write! We suggest using a pencil on these. In all honesty the only downside to Modestone paper is it's slight softness which takes some getting used to when writing with hard tipped pencils.

  • 64 sheets, 128 pages
  • 7 x 7 mm (0.3" x 0.3") squares
  • Dimensions 183 x 118 x 9 mm (7.2" x 4.6" x 0.4")
  • Under the front cover a Metric ruler, knot instructions and conversion chart between the well thought-out Metric system and the obsolete Imperial nonsense based on some Medieval war chief's big toe and nose diameter.
  • Under the back cover are the morse codes and a 1:50k map ruler

If you still use the Imperial system, just use that conversion chart found in our photos.

Recycling, son!

As said before, these are made of byproduct waste of limestone mines, which means the books are a vulgar display of ecological thinking.

Made in Finland

Made in Parola, Finland. Modestone is a pretty new player in the world of waterproof papers but a prime example of Finnish innovation. Modestone notebooks are currently in law enforcement and military use in Finland, and they´re steadily gaining fame out there in the big world too.

I would recommend it to everyone, the only down side is it doesn't fit in the pocket

Mainio vihko ja kirjoittaminen sujuu liko märkänäkin. Kannet eivät tosin siedä märkyyttä juurikaan; omasta vihostani ne irtosivat ensi kastumisen myötä.

Oikeasti vedenkestävä vihko, jossa on kunnolla tilaa.
Sivuja saa irrotettua helposti.
Kannet heikoin kohta vihkossa, hajoavat/irtoavat erittäin helposti jos kastuvat.

Pretty solidly built product with a ton of features. my favourite feature is the pre cut part that allows you to tear the sheets evenly. The paper also feels strange to the touch (most likely the waterproof constriction) and is a pleasure to write on 10/10 would buy again

While costly, approx 0.15 euro per page - I managed to fit up to 6 words per line (25 lines per page) = max. 19200 words per notebook - realize that this isnt for keeping notes from a university lecture. This notebook strikes the perfect size for keeping it compact while being comfortable to use and retaining a decent amount of information per page. It doesnt self destruct like any of the A4 or A5 sized notebooks in a bag, and is quite sturdy.

It fits perfectly in my cargo pocket, PC or chest rig. It sadly doesnt fit my Sarma Organizer, but that should be expected.

The paper is comfortable to write on, alcohol based markers wont seep through to the other page, and sometimes when writing too hard with a pen, it will stretch and etch the page, making a "valley"/"groove" instead of ripping it. It also features tiny holes on the "spine" side - meaning you dont need to take a knife to cut the page away.

Water resistance is on point, the ink sometimes failed sooner than the materiel itself. TEST YOUR PENS! There is no issue with pens, graphite "pencils", nor water and alcohol markers, or neon highlighters.

Great quality, feels a tad heavier that what you'd expect. I'd say it's worth the money for what it gives you.

Each page has perforation near the spine so you can tear it out from the notebook.

It fits nicely in the back pocket of a pair of Särmä common jeans.

Some things to keep in mind:

This material does not work great with liquid inks (so fountain pens, gel/roller ball, etc) since the paper doesn't really absorb anything. It will work, but it will take time for the ink to dry. So be careful of smudges. Same for ballpoints; give the ink a few seconds to dry before rubbing your paws all over the paper.

The horizontal lines don't match up page-to-page; they start at a different point on each page. So the first line might start 2mm from the edge on page one, and 1mm from the edge on page two, and 1cm from the edge on page three. The vertical lines do match up on each page though.

All around really good, nice to have as a journal when hiking or camping. The info bits on the front and back bits are helpful. But only bad thing is it weighs more then you would think.
