  • Waterproof Modestone stone paper
  • 30 sheets, 60 pages
  • 7 x 7 mm / 0.3" x 0.3" squares
  • Name space on the front cover
  • 1:25k and 1:50k map rulers inside the cover

Available in two different sizes. The larger one is comparable to A6 paper size, the smaller to A7. Choose which one suits you better depending on how you´re going to carry it and how much or little writing surface you need.

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! 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.

The inside of the front cover features printed map scale readers for 1:25k and 1:50k maps. This is especially enjoyable for Finnish military users. The sad and weird fact is that Finnish military issue compasses feature 1:20k scales for map reading, yet the issued maps are all 1:25k or 1:50k. This silly little compatibility issue has caused one or two headaches over the years. But, now you can just flip out your notebook and check the distance with no need for calculations!

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 got two. If you work in the elements while needing to remember more shit than your brain can hold or if you want a excellent notebook for your bug out bag or prepper stuff, this is it. 30 cents a sheet is worth it sometimes.

I placed a sheet in a bowl of water for a hour, then wiped it off very well. It was the same . You could go diving with this.

Näitä voi pitää hifistelytuotteina, kunnes on ärsyttävässä tihkusateessa tekemässä muistiinpanoja. Itse näin valon, kun piti kirjoittaa palautetta koulutusrastista sateessa ja kouraan lyötiin paperilappu, joka oli jo ojennettaessa sateesta limainen ja käyttökelvoton. Omasta lehtiöstä liikeni paperi, jolle piirtyi kivasti. Metsähommiin siis jatkossakin näitä.

I have both sizes of the notebook - several of each. Paper is unusually soft compared to similar products, but fisher space pen cartridges write very well on it. The paper is waterproof as advertised. Price is competitive with Rite in the Rain and other similar North American products. I think the Sarma product is superior, and costs about the same.

Loistava tuote, tilasin aiemmin kiinankaupasta samanlaisen ja eroa on kuin marraskuulla ja juhannuksella,. Ottaa tekstin vataan paremmin ja sietää kosteutta paremmin kuin made in China malli - kiinan versioon tekstiä tulee kunnolla vain lyijärillä - Lekan versioon tosiaan ihan mitä sattuu olemaan...

I got the small one for free as part of one of my orders.
It's a neat little notebook, will come in handy during the wet season.
Smells like new sex toys, which I find to be pleasant.

Parempaa vihkoa ja paperimateriaa rankempaan käyttöön saa ihan oikeasti hakemalla etsiä. Noin viitisen vuotta olen näitä ja muita modestonen tekeleitä kiduttanut merivedellä, mootorien öljyillä ja kemikaaleilla, sateella sekä mudalla. Kailtoinkohtelusta huolimatta, paperi pysyy lähes täysin puhtaana ja täysin käyttökelpoisena. Paperi on pehmeän puoleista ja saattaa joillekin vaikuttaa oudolta, mutta olen tykästynyt näihin enemmän kuin rite in the rainin vihkoihin.

Vihossa on pari huomionarvoista asiaa. Kaikki muste ja geelipohjaiset kynät eivät välttämättä toimi tämän paperin kanssa. Vihon sivut voi myös "liimaantua" toisiinsa kun sivujen väliin pääsee vettä. Tämä tekee sivujen pläräämisen haasteelliseksi varsinkin silloin kun on hanskat kädessä.

Works exactly as advertised. Can write in the rain, and the notebook dries out nicely. The spiral binding is nice for being able to hold it flat in one hand and write with the other.

I work in a mine, and in a dusty area normal paper wouldn't work. But this works excellent, I ordered four. A Modestone diary in 2019. After using it up completely I ordered another three.
