    Field Journal Notebook

    Darcy,

    When will the FJN be available and do you have any super secret spy photos you and Tom would care to share, also details of this item would just entice us that much more to spend $$.

    Thanks for such great products,

    Jim

    Hi fellow forum members,

    I heard from Katy in response to an email I sent to Tom Bihn via the web interface and I got some information that is relevant to this thread. Katy said, "The new products that will be announced soon will not include the Field Journal. The new items should be announced and up for preorder within the first weeks of April." Thank you Katy for letting me know!

    FJN WITH iPAD PROVISION

    It would be really cool if the FJN would be able to hold/carry the iPad, though not just for the iPad, just the ability if so desired, it would have provisions for it.

    The Field Journal is indeed very cool. Tom is busy working on it, and I cannot wait to order one. It continues to improve, Tom has put much thought into this.
    Sorry - I saw this thread and thought I'd drop in. The Field Journal is nearing......

    Will it come with paper included? Will it be refillable with any notebooks of an appropriate size? Approximately how big is the prototype now?

    Field Notebook teaser on Twitter

    The link above refers to the thread called "Field Notebook teaser on Twitter" it has a picture of the Field Notebook prototype, it was included on an e-newsletter send by Tom Bihn Inc.

    Tom is always refining his designs using people's input, societal trends, technical innovations and his own inspiration.


    Leonardo didn't have to worry about reverse engineering from pictures, but innovators, in the internet age, do.

    1) Will be announced at pre-order.
    2) Yes, you will be able to make it your own.
    3) I cannot ruin the surprise.

    The Field Journal Notebook is done! We're waiting on a few special components (a lot of cool stuff is going into the FJN - for example, the ring mechanism from Austria) and once we get those in, the FJN will go up for pre-order sometime in June.
    Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine prototype, Founder's Briefcase (every day carry), Small Cafe Bag (every day carry), Shop Bags (groceries, extra random stuff), Aeronaut 45 (travel), Synapse 19 (day hikes), Smart Alec (longer day hikes), Skookum Dog Road Duffel (Medium) (travel), Clear Organizer Wallet, Travel Stuff Sacks, Organizer Cubes

    Thanks,

    Jim
