rite-in-the-rain-waterproof-notepad-gear-patrolIn the 1920’s Jerry Darling created the first “Rite In the Rain” Waterproof Notepad, designed specifically to solve the problem of soggy paperwork for manly men of the Pacific Northwest’s Logging industry. Ironic, we know. Since then, Rite In The Rain paper has evolved to become some of the most durable paper money can buy. Better yet, each notepad is still manufactured right here in the U.S. of A, in Tacoma, Washington. Though many Gear Patrol crew members are still die-hard fans of our Moleskine Notebook, the idea of a notepad designed to work in all weather conditions appeals to our get out there sensibilities, as does the brand’s classic yet simple Polydura yellow exterior.

Available in loose leaf paper or in a variety of notebooks ranging from pocket sized to 8.5″x 11″, the Rite In The Rain Waterproof Notepads insure your transcriptions outlast the unpredictable elements.

Cost: 8 1/2″ x 11″ Spiral Notebook ($14) | Pocket-Sized 5/8″ x 7″ 4-Pack ($7)
