Product Description

Aesthetically, you'll find an all-new design with plenty to like: a hi-visibility "Antarctic Survey Orange" front cover and "Polar Night Black" back cover, with a subtle varnish effect featuring a topographic map of Antarctica. The body pages feature our popular dot-graph paper printed in light gray.
But the real innovation here is the paper. It's maybe not even fair to call it paper. The whole book is printed on Yupo Synthetic paper, an amazing water- and tear-proof paper extruded from polypropylene pellets in Chesapeake, Virginia. We could go on and on about this books' durability and incredible properties, and Field Notes will, in this series of 12 (reasonably) scientific tests on their website (fieldnotesbrand.com):
TEST 1: WATERPROOF
TEST 2: VISIBILITY
TEST 3: WIND RESISTANCE
TEST 4: BALLISTICS
TEST 5: VACUUM
TEST 6: TENSILE STRENGTH
TEST 7: COMPRESSION
TEST 8: ACID RESISTANCE
TEST 9: FLAME RESISTANCE
TEST 10: EXTREME TEMPERATURE
TEST 11: ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES
TEST 12: ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE
Months of development and testing were required to get these books just right, and they'd like to thank Yupo for their extensive support, as well as the great printers and ink technicians that pitched in to help.
The majority of our customers may not test the limits of these books, but the map of Antarctica is neither hyperbole nor coincidence. Field Notes sent the Expedition edition to the South Pole with explorer Ben Saunders as he and his team retraced Captain Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated journey to the Pole and back, on foot and unsupported, in October 2013.
Note: Synthetic paper is nonporous and doesn't absorb ink like our conventional papers. Ballpoint pens, pencils, or fine tip Sharpies work best.
