Särmä TST waterproof notebook
The ability to take notes is something you should never be without, this waterproof and strong notebook has been designed especially for military use. A notebook is a notebook, but with high quality materials and some clever functional details we´ve turned this into something a bit more!
- Waterproof Modestone stone paper
- 30 sheets, 60 pages
- 7 x 7 mm 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!

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.

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.
