This is a great journal; it has certainly proved durable! After a year the leather cover has a few scratches and dents and the corners are little bent, but it otherwise looks great, feels smooth, and shows no sign of wearing out. The cover does a great job of protecting the paper inside. The journal is thick and heavy, but not difficult to carry. It's not as easy to write in as a full-sized journal, but it's more portable and fits better into a bag. I've been using it for a little over a year to write a few pages a couple of times a week, and I've only half filled it. So, it's probably more than you need for a two-week trip somewhere, but a good choice for a long project or journey. The paper is nice to write on; it's decently thick and smooth yet still pleasingly tactile. The pens I've used--medium tip blue and black ballpoint, blue microball, and dark blue gel--all show through, but not enough to interfere with reading or writing. I'm a little more than halfway through the journal and the pages I've written on haven't crinkled. The journal opens up mostly flat through the middle, though never flat enough that you can write without using your other hand to keep the pages steady. It doesn't really open flat at the ends. So, writing at the beginning of the journal was easier when I put a book under one side to make it flatter. I'm right-handed, so I pulled out the refill and reinserted it the other way around so the tab closure wouldn't interfere with my writing. The snap still holds great after a year. BN.com doesn't list a refill for this leather cover, so last night I went to a Barnes & Noble to try some out. I found the refill journal for this leather cover is the 6"x8" Lined Journal Refill, ISBN 9781616868352. Even though I'm only halfway through this journal I bought the refill to make sure I'll be able to keep going when I finish!
This year I wanted to upgrade from the regular journals one can purchase. I LOVE leather and this journal is soft, supple and more than meets my needs. Many times when I meet with clients I take notes that I refer back to when I meet with clients. What I appreciate most is that I can replace the pages and keep the soft supple leather. Win-win for anyone!
The Journal is awesome and allows you to write in it and use it for various resources. It is a great treasure.
it's the bast journal i have .....i have 5 of them!!
The journal itself is nice, however after opening it the front cover bent while trying to close it and made it impossible to close easily after that. I eventually just ripped the cover off because that was much easier than trying to finesse the cover to get it to close every time.
