@allegorygoods Terrible disappointment! I received my pocket journal today and it is DEFINITELY not worth what I paid for it. It is a flimsy,thin, hand stitched “leather“ piece of fabric that looks like a Boy Scout merit badge project. I had mine engraved and the Engraving is crooked. Would not recommend. @AllegoryGoods @Liz

So sorry to hear you've had that experience. If you'd like, we'd be happy to hand pick a nice thick piece of leather and double check the engraving to get you a replacement that fits your expectations. Shoot us an email at service@allegorygoods.com to get that started.
Thanks! Chad
AllegoryGoods
Thank you for your response and willingness to fix the issue. I sent you an email as requested.
Guys on the drop page it says " Please note that the notebooks and the leather cover will be shipped separately." be patient
@allegorygoods Same thing happened to me. Field Notes only. Sent two email inquiries. No word yet. @AllegoryGoods @Liz

Did you email us at service@allegorygoods.com? If so and no one responded let me know I'll look into it myself. If not let's start there to find out what's up. I think the deadline for these was mid-late August. We don't anticipate any issues meeting that. Massdrop was likely just shipping the notebooks to get ahead of things.
porque
Same to me. Field notes only. Just send a request support.
@Liz @AllegoryGoods Help! I've submitted a support request with Massdrop and I have not heard back. I have only received the field notes and not the leather piece.
Wondering what could've happened and what I can do now!

No worries, they ship separatly. We ship your cover and massdrop sends the refills. If you'd like to check status on the cover email service@allegorygoods.com and we'll get you an update. Thanks for tagging us that makes it much easier to catch your note and respond quickly.
AllegoryGoods
Whew! Thanks for the reply. I will send an email.
Anybody else get some funny business in the mail?
Strange, I think I received the notebooks early in a separate shipment than the leather cover. At least I hope that's the case.
I grabbed the Rustico Field Notebook a while ago, love it but I don't like the added leather chunks for the pen holder and loose sleeve holder, as its in my back pocket. I'm very excited for this one! It seems the do exactly what I was looking at plus its a little smaller. The Rustico Field Notebook 4.25 x 6.375 Allegory Leather Pocket Journal 3.9 x 5.8
Going with Coffee and Can't wait! Just to point out Rustico did come with a 3 pack of field notes. Felt it was only fair to mention that.
Wow that looks fantastic! Any chance of getting something like this but with a pen holder ? I like keeping those together

wow that looks great ! not sure though if that would fit in the pocket. i actually going for something much simpler, like just a small loop to hold a pen and keep it out of the way.
ComanDo
Ah gotcha. Kind of like how Leuchtturm has those convenient stick on pen loops that you can put in any notebook?
I also have this is saddle. I am pleased with the suppleness of the leather, its durability, and ability to shrug off the soggy Pacific Northwest weather. As it ages, my journal cover is developing some great character. I have been very happy with all of my Allegory leather goods. I have coated my journal cover with neutral Kiwi shoe polish.
I have this in saddle and the leather is beautiful, very supple and durable. As it wears it develops a great natural character. And the notebook fits in it perfectly. Highly recommended!
What size field notes notebook does this hold?
Dgriff
The pocket size notebooks.
Are the Fieldnotes and leather covers shipping separately? So far I've only received the Fieldnotes.

Me too

It was stated in earlier threads that the Field Notes do, in fact, ship separately. However, it has been 3 weeks since I have received my Field Notes and I am pretty disappointed that there have been no updates and that the shipping notification that is given by Massdrop is ONLY for the Field Notes. I would really like to know when to expect my cover.
Edit: Ok, so I may have gotten a little dramatic and cranky about not having my cover yet. I received my Field Notes on Aug. 2nd, 9 days ago. I am still worried about the fact that Massdrop shows it as delivered though. Will update if it ever comes in.
Edit 2: Wow. Not sure if this is karma, crazy coincidental timing, or if Massdrop is watching, I JUST received a shipping notice.
Why is this labelled as massdrop exclusive when I can buy it off their site?
porndealer
The custom thread options and multiple font engraving are exclusive to massdrop.
Thanks! Chad
This is a beautiful pocket journal. I've had it in my pocket for the last year and it has held up very well. Only complaint is that the leather pieces that hang over the edges of the notebook are pretty small. My field notes can sometimes have a cover slip out during use. Not a big problem, but it is something to note.
awsumsawz
Just a heads up, we've since addressed this issue and increased the size of those flaps for a more secure fit.
Cheers! Chad
The lined notebooks arrived on Friday March 3, and the leather cover arrived on Monday March 6. This was accurate to how Massdrop described due to the items shipping separately. The leather is good quality and there were no craftsmanship errors. I'm very satisfied with this drop!
I received an email that my order had shipped, I was of course excited. The only thing I received to day were the lined notebooks that go inside, the leather cover was not delivered. I wrote to support. Their emails are very misleading the email indicated the whole ordered had shipped. From reading comments this is nothing new. I still don't know when the leather cover will be coming in. I think the idea of Massdrop is good, but they are very frustrating to deal with.

They could be more clear by having separate entries on the Transactions page for the cover and notebooks so we could see what the shipping status is on each of the shipments. It's really unfortunate they don't have a way to distinguish that. I wrote to support on a different drop that was also a cover shipping separately from the notebook, and once the notebook ships it just says "Delivered" for the whole order. I really don't see why anyone would defend Massdrop on this when all the confusion could be resolved with a relatively simple change to the software.
McDoogle
Sigh. It's not that I care to "defend" Massdrop and I do think their software has some rough edges. However, it just wasn't fair to criticize them when they had given enough information about this within their limitations. I'm simply being fair to them.
Where does this ship from?
Greenguy
Looks like Breinigsville, PA on my Fedex tracking info.
Ooohhh boy, super tempted for this...
Does anyone know if it is compatible with stuff like moleskin notebooks?
I dont used thin notebooks very often anymore..
On a side note, I looked up their website and man their earbud/coin pouch and A5 Leather notebook cover also looks astounding!!
I just don't get why Allegory uses laser cutting... wouldn't a cutting die be enough? Edges will be cleaner, they won't need to wash the leather and it will be quicker to produce.
Also, the way they finish the threads is just so messy, it devalues the cover so much! I get that they are being careful, but the stitches just spread out in a blob. It's handmade, I get it, but it also screams inattention to details.
Any updates available?
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Allegory Leather Pocket Journal and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will ship the individual orders directly to you. The current estimated ship date is 1/23.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 1/12.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).

When will the notebooks ship?
Got mine today - all good quality wise , except for an incorrect letter in the engraving :/
shooteur
I'm so sorry! Can you snap a picture and send it to us at service@allegorygoods.com? We'll make a new cover and get it out to you ASAP.
Just received mine, and couldn't be more disappointed. Looks like something made at summer camp by my kids...oh well, guess that's $35 down the drain.
sireland961

I haven't received my cover, but did receive the notebook. Anyone else not get their cover?

I totally understand. We've participated in drops many times too where it felt like the wait was just forever. It's hard when you're so excited about something. Hopefully when you get your cover it's worth the wait.
All the best, Jess
Thanks! I'll follow-up with the Massdrop team and see what we can do to clarify what is shipping when. Thanks for the feedback. :) -Jess

Hey all - Just a clarification here, these covers will be headed out early next week.
elimelendez
You can't even get your story straight. Are they shipped one says yes, another says next week. I would ask for a refund but it would probably take a few months to get it.
How does Allegory compare to rustico in quality?
JonnyJ
From the picture Allegory looks more smooth and refined. Tempted to buy this but $13 shipping is too much and also my recent purchase Rustico is in transit.
Does anyone know if this cover works with the perfect-bound Write Notepads pocket notebooks? (Spine is thicker than the staple-bound Field Notes.) My current leather cover from Doane Paper doesn't work well with perfect-bound notebooks so I'm in the market for one.
mcollis
Sorry I missed your comment before the drop closed. We'll be re-running again soon I'm sure though. Based on the sizing it looks like the Write Notepads would work well in our Pocket Notebook Covers. There is a bit of extra allowance that will likely leave room for the bound notebook. I'm not sure how easily Massdrop does returns if something doesn't work for you, but our covers are also on our website if you want to just give it a try and return it if it doesn't fit like you would like.
-Jess
Did you guys receive two separate tracking numbers-- one for the journal cover and one for the notebooks? I only got one tracking number (via DHL/USPS) and it turned out to be the notebooks and not the journal cover. I'm also on the west coast for those curious.
Meim
I had to email allegory for the information, turns out orders were misplaced or something and a few did not make the cut. They were very happy to get me settled in and my order on its way.
Dimaaaa
Yeah, I actually reached out to them directly myself as well and am now in the same boat as you.
