For the adventures where you can’t take your iPhone or iPad with you, you need the Field Notes Expedition Edition ($10) to jot down those important notes. These expedition-proof memo books are 17th issue of the Field Notes COLORS subscription. Printed on Yupo synthetic paper, these notebooks have been tested for water resistance , visibility, wind resistance, ballistics, vacuum, tensile strength, compression, acid resistance, flame resistance, extreme temperature, electromagnetic waves, and electrical resistance. Consider your notes safe.
Once you have already gotten your Field Notes Colors Subscription, you will need something to keep your notepads in good shape. The Corter Leather Field Notes Sleeve ($56) is specifically made for Field Notes pocket notebooks (and some other small pocket notebooks). It’s made from vegetable tanned leather and includes a loop at the spine that holds your pen (pencil).
Either buy it as a gift for yourself, or buy it for someone else. Either way, you need to get the Birchbox Man ($45). Anthony Logistics for Men Advanced Formula Lip Balm SPF 25 and Shave Cream, Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20, BVLGARI MAN Eau De Toilette, Field Notes Notebook Mixed 3-Pack, Bonobos $25 Gift Card, Kérastase Pâte Capital Force Densifying Modeling Paste and Bain Capital Force Densifying Shampoo, Kérastase Homme Gym Bag, Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste, EBOOST Super Berry Shots, and Skullcandy Earbuds.

If you don’t have a pocket notebook yet, you need one, like right now. The pocket scribbler is a contemporary masculine necessity for jotting down those hair-brained ideas and to-do’s for the day. The problem: we tend to run through pocket notebooks fairly quickly with all of the rampant note taking. That’s why the wonderful people at Field Notes have come up with a subscription plan ($129/yr) to make sure you are in that limited number who receives the quarterly editions of Field Notes Colors as they are released. Subscriptions include two 3-Packs each of four seasonal editions, two 3-Packs of standard Field Notes (One graph and one mixed pack), plus all the shipping for the year and lots of goodies thrown in, just because.
