We’ve reached the point where we’re hesitant to buy any notebook that does not come equipped with some sort of pen holster. Admittedly, this is upsetting to us seeing as how, and you may have noticed this, we kinda have a thing for notebooks. The problem is having a notebook without something to write with is kind of like having a soley Wi-Fi equipped iPad in the middle of the Sahara (if the Sahara has Wi-Fi we apologize for this reference). Luckily we found the Journal Bandolier and no longer need to contemplate tossing all our notebooks in the recycling bin. Handmade from reclaimed rubber and elastic, this Bandolier fits 5” wide notebooks (the classic Moleskin for example). Also, since we have a penchant for grabbing the one pen that’s out of ink, the Journal Bandolier lets us keep seven writing instruments strapped to our pad.
