    But in the meantime, I hope someone with the FJN in Parapack will post a review. Apart from the more limited color selections (no plum or bright shades like crimson) this struck me as a good place for the use of the Parapack material.

    I think the 420d is the parapack.

    Quick First Impressions - Tom Bihn Field Journal

    Ah - I was getting confused between parapack & ballistic. Still, I'd like to see the FJN in funky colours again & with an iPad mini option

    ETA: I plan on buying a 3-hole punch next time I'm in the US - half-letter is very close to A5, so paper size shouldn't be an issue, but we use 2-ring binders

    @scribe I was being sloppy in my description. All the earlier FJNs shown in these pictures from last year used Cordura for the outside. When they announced (end of last year) that new FJNs were available for backorder for March 2014, the fabric changed to 420d high tenacity nylon Parapack, I just shortened this to "Parapack".

    Scribe, the U.S 3 holes punch doesn't work with the FJN.

    They are for Letter which is closer to A4 than A5, I know because I am French and I live in the U.S.

    There is a European manufacturer which make 3 holes punch for A5, last year, I went to Europe and I forgot to spend time in stationery stores to try to get the item in question.

    I wrote about it on this forum but I am no Moriond and won't be able to find it.


    I did find a Swedish manufacturer of adjustable punches:

    paper punch, punches, punch, paper punches

    I don't recall the post @backpack references, but I recall discussion in the Field Journal thread.

    ETA there was a recommended Staples punch but it's out of stock Field Journal Notebook paper punch

    This is exactly the thread Moriond! You are a genius!


    I want to punch regular recycled paper for lists that are not permanent such as seasonal grocery, clothes, art supplies shopping and to do stuff in categories,

    I have a regular size, letter/A4 3 holes punch but I don't want to tweak it for A5 and risk breaking it. Maybe I should try to tweak it.

    I also bought a Franklin Covey one, but it is 7 holes and it drives me crazy.


    I did buy pre-punched paper from TB and then bought some more, it is so nice for notetaking, in even, the most formal circumstances.

    Thanks for the clarification! The hole punch appears to be back in stock, so I'll see if one of my US friends can order it and bring it along to the convention in July :)

    ETA: Just took the plunge and placed my 3rd TB order - I've recently resurrected my Filofax gardening journal, because despite all my gadgets I love using fountain pen and paper. The FJN, on the other hand, will make a perfect Portable Novel-Writing Kit (with iPad Mini tucked inside front pocket)!

    It's kinda like that, but we have much better hats (and scarves and cowls) thanks to the knitters over at Ravelry.
