Custom Pocket Notebook Cover, Guaranteed for Life

Made in collaboration with our friends at Allegory, a Kickstarter-born Chicago shop dedicated to handcrafted, small-batch manufacturing, this notebook cover is available only on Massdrop. It’s specially designed to protect your Field Notes and other pocket notebooks. Made of supple, durable leather with internal flaps for a secure hold, each cover comes with Allegory's legendary lifetime guarantee. For a complete set, check out the Allegory Webnotebook cover and matching pen wrap; if you’re interested, click the “Request” button and we’ll do our best to bring these back soon in a new drop.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of leather color and thread color. The base price doesn't include a pocket notebook, but you can add a Field Notes mixed 3-pack for $9.95 at checkout. Please note that the leather cover and notebooks will be shipped separately. You'll also have the option to add engraving (see details below) and a pen pocket to your cover for $10 apiece.

About the Leather

A year after its 2012 launch, Allegory added a suite of leather goods to its existing line of pens. To produce these leather products, the company works directly with a tannery in Ecuador, where eco-friendly farming practices are paramount. Vegetable-tanned and waterproofed, the leather is built to age well and show character over time. Still, it’s easy to restore to like-new condition with a quick treatment of neatsfoot oil.

Optional Engraving

For an additional $10, engraving is available and limited to two lines. At checkout, select the optional engraving of your font choice (sans serif, serif, or script) and fill out the optional engraving text box to ensure we receive this request. For an idea of what your personalized engraving might look like, see the photo of the cover engraved with “Engraving Here.” If you’ve selected the engraving option but do not fill in your desired text, the order will be processed without personalization, and you’ll be refunded the $10 add-on charge.
