A Notebook for Every Season


Summer is coming to an end, and while for many of us this means less time melting or getting soaked outdoors, some of you (roughly 50%) will still be required to spend part of your day working outside. This is especially true if you’re in construction, protective services, or ethnography. And these statistics aren’t even factoring in birders, fishing enthusiasts, or shower thinkers (bear with me).

Well, we have you covered! Rhodia and Exaclair have notebooks for each and every one of you weathering the elements year-round. They’re so adaptable and well-made that even office workers will want to find ways to use them.

Take, for example, the Chartwell Watershed Waterproof Notepad. It’s perfect for people working in demanding environments. The waterproof pages make it easy to take down measurements or inventory in the rain, but they also come in handy for people like this fellow blogger, who keeps waterproof notebooks in the shower for when he gets ideas. Athletes or people trying to get in shape may benefit from a notepad like this as well. Brian Muckian in the UK uses it to write down his swim training, so he can read it in the pool! The possibilities are, quite literally, endless.

Another example of how versatile our notebooks are is this great story about a Maine fisherman. Capt. Thompson swears by Clairefontaine notebooks after they survived a boat accident that could’ve destroyed his records had he written on less reliable paper. These notebooks are mostly geared toward students and the fountain-pen-loving general public, not necessarily someone working at sea, who is expected to use a more specialized tool and writes with a simple ballpoint pen.

We’ve been around for hundreds of years, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still find a world of uses for our products, in any weather. In which unexpected ways do you use your Rhodia/Clairefontaine notebooks?
