I have Field Notes covers from several manufacturers and the two from Coal Creek are my favorite by far. The quality of the leather is very high. It looks great and is thick enough to support writing on it without feeling bulky in my pocket (disclaimer: I’m 6’ 6” and have relatively large pockets). Adding an internal pen loop does make it a little to large to be practical for a pocket, but it’s great to have around the office. Highly recommended!
I carry this notebook with me every day. The stiff leather gives a decent writing surface no matter where I am. I wish the monogram was slightly more embellished than just just blocky serif letters. I would say that I wish it was slightly smaller, but I can look past this because the extra margin allows for decent stitching and use of thick stock.
I designed my own field notes cover with two card holders (not just the slits) on the left hand side and a pen loop and snap as the closure. I ordered the chestnut leather. It shipped very quickly (especially considering I designed my own). I use it as an every day carry wallet. I have owned the cover for about four months and I could not be more impressed. The leather is perfect in every way. It smells amazing and is incredibly soft- you just want to keep touching it. The cover feels like it will last a lifetime. The leather scratches easily but I believe that's part of the charm. Over the course of a few months the leather has darkened beautifully- I believe it will keep improving with age. I have recommended this to anyone who I think might be interested. I will definitely be ordering more products from Coal Creek Leather. At the price point, at really any price point, you just can't beat this. I rave about this purchase!
