The Inevitable FJN Questions
Regarding the new Field Journal Notebook ("FJN") and accessories announced on the Tom Bihn Blog today, I have some basic questions...
- Do the zippers on the new FJN come with Cord Zipper Pulls already attached, or would a customer have to buy a pack of them?
- Am I correct that the zippered front pocket of the FJN has an "o" ring inside to help keep keys and small pouches organized? If so, where is this ring located in the pocket?
- It seems that the main zippered compartment also contains another "o" ring. Can this compartment hold a Tom Bihn Clear Organizer Pouch, Pen & Pencil size, in case I want to use the little pockets for items other than pens/pencils?
- On the FJN main product web-page, photograph "E" shows the FJN being balanced in front of its owner while being suspended by a shoulder strap. I'm wondering if it's possible to zip the FJN shut in this configuration while it is not being used. (One opens the FJN, makes an entry, closes it to move to the next location, and opens it again...) Can this work? The reason I ask is that I know of a volunteer for a local winter festival that would have use for something like the FJN, but it would have to be easy to keep opening and shutting it while suspending it on one's waist as illustrated.
Thanks in advance.
