You need this, you need a handbag--admit it!
Unfortunately, 18,- shipping to Europe is too much for me, a shame.
So, confused .. does this only fit the field notes pocket pad, or does it now fit the moleskin cahiers as well?
mikeofmany
tl;dr: cahiers fit. Originally, it may not have, then they may have modified the design so that it did fit cahiers however apparently a few (to several) were produced/sold after that point (/ever) with either early stock or a mistake in stitching that Allegory replaced at their own cost, with products that do fit the cahiers. source: this thread.
Hi all, Thanks for being part of this drop! We're working on all your orders. The shipping deadline is November 23, and we will post here if there are going to be any delays. We craft and ship all our products from our Chicago-area workshop, but Massdrop is responsible for purchasing and tracking the postage. If you have questions about tracking, arrival time-frame, etc. their team are the ones to contact. If once you receive your order, you have questions or issues, please contact us at service@allegorygoods.com. We have a lifetime, no questions asked guarantee on ALL our products. We want you to absolutely LOVE all the stuff we make, and we won't stop until that's the case. We'll be able to much more quickly address any of those issues or questions if you reach out directly to us at our service email (service@allegorygoods.com), as opposed to posting here on the boards or going through Massdrop customer service. With as many drops as we are fortunate to run through Massdrop it can become difficult for us to make sure to respond to every customer note on the boards. And, since it saves everyone some time, we're happy work with you directly so that Massdrop support team doesn't have to act as a go-between. We hope you love your new Allegory gear!
I got the dark brown leather and red stwitching. Can’t wait to see how it looks
$21 USD shipping to NZ? That's disappointing.
What are the two bags shown in the pictures?
Is there a return policy or all sales final? I'm having a hard time, even reading through comments, determining whether it will be the right size for me.

DC_JC,
Not sure about how returns work on massdrop, but we offer exchanges and have a bunch of different edc stuff this community helped us come up with. Feel free to post what you're hoping to use it for and I'll do my best to assess the possible fit.
The bag with the carabiner is our flight satchel. Not sure about the other.

Been using mine for nearly a month now and it is a fantastic EDC piece. It lets me carry everything I could realistically need on a typical day and fits almost perfectly in the back pocket of a pair of jeans (about 1/2 an inch sticks out which is great since I don't use the carabiner on it). I walk about a mile and a half to work each day and it keeps me from having to carry a bag unless I'm going to need my laptop.

After looking at your pictures I realized this thing carries more than I thought it would.
Hey all, just received mine last night and wanted to say it looks great. I do have a question though and that is what size notebook will fit inside?
NameTaken
A bit late for a reply, but might be useful for people interested in the future. It fits a 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 notebook like a standard Field Notes or Elan Field Book notebook.
I'm interested, but I want to know about the engraving. It's not shown in any of the photos posted here.
Jacko411
I agree where will the engraving be exactly? And will it be stitched or burned or ect..?
Jacko411
Apologies, we'll need to get that fixed for future drops. We make these to order and don't have any on-hand so I'll do my best to describe the engraving.
Placement: We center the engraving between the snaps on the front cover, with the bottom of the text facing the opening.
Look/Process: The engraving is laser etched into the leather. You can see some examples on this drop: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/allegory-leather-pocket-journal. Since taking these photos we have made some improvements to our hardware and process, so the text will be a little more crisp than you see here.
Hope this helps! Chad

Great to see allegory goods on top of their customer service game! Quick question on how much shipping to ireland would be?
Warbaby
While we apply the labels, pack, and ship - massdrop actually handles purchasing postage and providing labels. So your best bet would be to go through the checkout process and check shipping options before you confirm.
Thanks! Chad
Very cool looking item.
When are you planning on selling this again? I'm interested in getting one, but I could join because I already spent too much recently...
Will this fit a Lamy Safari?
What notebooks will fit? Any specific size or brand to look for or is it just guess and check?
I have had mine for a little while and finally got a 3-pack of the Moleskine Cahier. These books won't fit in the pouch, the "band" seems just a bit too small.
I read below that these issues had been addressed. Is anyone else seeing issues with the most recent batch?

I should have updated my post weeks ago to say, Allegory made good on their promise and shipped me a replacement swiftly. It fits the field book very well.
wrenhunter
Good to hear their customer service is helpful, thanks. Guess I'll be working with them, as well.
Still, it's a bit concerning that you read before your drop that there was an issue, supposedly fixed, then you had the issue after the 'design change,' and now here I am, 16-or-so weeks later...
I'm much more interested in the model's peacoat lol
Waitingggg
That is one killer jacket.
Waitingggg
Looks like a pretty standard peacoat
I'm much more interested in the model's peacoat lol
Sweet purse.
I just recieved mine. Seems to be of good quality, but the engraving seems to have the latter's blended a fair bit to hard to read what it says, and the second line seemed to have cut the stitching.
JustFluxz
Would you mind posting a picture plz i want to know where it is engraved and how it is done? Stitching, burning, printing??? None of this is shown or explained.
EaTALoT10
I actually had it returned. I ended up not liking and felt I didnt need it. There was some defects that I was able to return it for.
What size generally would I need for the book? I am a college student so this would be nice as an agenda. Also, how much would they generally be. I kinda pushed more then what I wanted to spend with this lol. Can someone link me a good black notebook?
JustFluxz
The moleskine cahier is a good choice if you want a black cover. They come in 3 packs for around $10
AllegoryGoods
Can i get an image of the engraving please?
Were changes made to fit a field notes notebook?
deano1
Yep, we fixed the fit issues. They were only affecting about 1 in 50, but we added some extra room so they should be non existent now.
Thanks, Chad
Hey all just checking back in about the fit issues here. We have altered the design to make sure this doesn't happen moving forward and we are sending replacements to anyone affected. We tested each one before sending, but they were made for a tight fit and leather is a living, breathing material. Even a change in humidity or temperature could cause a change from "tight fit" to "doesn't fit. So we've built in more breathing room into the design. Thanks for working with us as we tweak this new product. Developing and refining products alongside our customers can be messy, but the end result is always worth it.
-Chad
Also recieved a pouch that did not fit a notebook... emailed Allegory Goods waiting for a response. On the bright side the leather is very nice.
CEOKING
UPDATE: recieved the new pouch, fits moleskin books. It also has a better quality leather? The leather felt softer than the original one. Not saying its a bad thing. Great product and great company working with customers willing to improve their producy
My (delayed) pouch just arrived-- doesn't fit my Field Notes. Upsetting that I had to wait extra long and it's still not sized right.
GreenTentacle
Agreed, after the delays here this is unacceptable. Please send us a message at service@allegorygoods.com with your shipping information and color choices and we will get a replacement on it's way to you immediately.
Thanks, Chad
Hi all - to those of you who are still waiting , thank you for your patience. We had some unexpected issues with our leather supplier that lead to a us having a two week lapse in leather production. We have this resolved now, so if you are still waiting it won't be long (around a week) before you get your tracking number. We're putting some new inventory controls in place to avoid issues like this in the future. We'll make sure it will be worth the wait. Feel free to contact us at service@allegorygoods.com with any questions about your specific order.
I guess I get to be one of the people stuck waiting on the backorder stuff. I assume if I didn't get an email with a tracking number I'm one of the backorders? I'm patient enough (I wouldn't have sprung two bills for the K-type's 6 month wait if I wasn't), but it would be nice to have some estimate of when I should expect to have this.
Given the wait and the complaints from some of the people who have received products that have issues with dimensions being off just enough to make the field notes not fit properly, I hope that they will also "triple-check" mine before it goes out the door. I'll wait as long as it takes to get a perfect item (at least as close as humanity can get to perfect).
TipsyMacScotchslurpen
Same, still waiting for mine too. Would not mind waiting as long as the product is good
TipsyMacScotchslurpen
Ugh. We'll get back to you in another week!
Yay?
I received my pounch and am sad to say, but I was disappointed. I was disappointed in two major things. First is the stitching on this. The thread seems overly thin and will easily fall apart over time. It's also double stitching seemingly randomly throughout and not at key areas. It really just seems sloppy and definitely not durable. Not the end of the world for me, but if I'm being honest, this was my impression.
The other, and most important issue was that I bought it to hold my field notes in (like in the pictures advertising this) and it doesn't it! The strap of leather that used to secure the field notes isn't wide enough. I do not want to trim the back cover of the field notes for this to fit. It's off. by a mm or two. Here's a pic:

Hi all, This is definitely an issue that we need to get resolved. Not sure why we suddenly had sizing issues with a few in this production run, but we will get to the bottom of this and get it solved. In the meantime please contact us for a replacement which will be triple checked for proper fit. service@allegorygoods.com
As for the concerns regarding the thread durability, we are extremely selective with our materials. The thread is actually incredibly strong, and uv resistant for durability over time. Will be posting a video soon of two adults playing tug of war with one of our bags. The type of thread we use is commonly used in sails which must endure the elements as well as constant extreme force. While it's not as thick as threads used in other items you've seen, it is in many cases stronger and more durable due to the quality of materials, and the structure of the thread.
Cheers, Chad

I have no idea how to use this thing either. It fits moleskin notebooks. However, with items packed in the little elastic holders, it is way to bulky to use as a notebook carrier.
What type of leather is this? Top? Full? Also how thick is the leather used?
