I don’t know about you but whenever I travel there are two things I love to carry with me a map and a note pad to write down any detail I want to make sure I don’t forget. Yes! Technology has developed incredibly but there are moments when your best option is to go old school.
But I live in Guatemala and traveling around Central America which has a tropical weather, so this means lots of ruined note pads and losing my info due to unexpected rains. I also travel with boys that are in love with water so wherever they can find a pool they jump right into it, so they are often running around me being wet.
I desperately needed to something that worked for my needs. That’s how I found Rite in the Rain. It offers water resistant products like notebooks and pens. So I immediately contacted them, and they were kind enough to send me what I thought would be more practical for travelers: a 3 in x 5 in, 50 sheet, Pocket Notebook, which also came with a pen and a cover.
Here are some of the things I find useful in all weather notepads:
1. The pages are really thick and resistant; they don’t even wrinkle when it they get wet.
2. It has a cover made of a very resistant material that I’m sure will last through any storm (including kids). It also takes around 15min of rain before water filters into it.
3. The pen my kit came with actually writes over wet & greasy paper, since it said it writes in any angle I decided to try it and it actually does!
4. It is made of recycled material and is also recyclable.
Some things to consider:
Even though it writes over wet paper when you run your finger over whatever you wrote it will smudge a little but it will still be visible.
But the bottom line, I really enjoy using this product, I’m not thrilled that it rains, but at least I can still jot my memories with out worrying about losing the info.
