Waterproof Paper

Stephanie

We recently received a question whether or not Rhodia paper is waterproof – which it isn’t. This lead me to wonder under what different circumstances someone might be needing to write outside in less than optimal elemental conditions. Entomologist performing research in the rain forest? Backpacking in the Himalayas? Captain of the Maid of the Mist?

Have you ever wanted to or needed to be writing in the rain? Or snow?

  1. Rite-in-the-Rain was the obligatory field book for us for working outdoors or on or near the water. We used their notebooks and bought their paper to make our own forms. The paper would take pencil or ballpoint pen ink. No fountain pen ink, of course. The Fisher Space Pen was especially compatible, and the RITR company sells them too. I guess if you were backpacking cross-country, the RITR notebook would be your perfect travel journal.
