My family is not very impressed with most of the travel gear that I am reviewing on this blog, but every once in a while I’ll pull out something that makes my daughter go, “Wow, that is so cool!” When I stuck a notebook from Brooks-Range under the bathroom faucet and wrote a note in pen while the water was gushing down, I felt like a magician wowing the audience with a new trick. I shook off the water, rubbed my hand over the writing, and nothing smudged. Thank you ladies and gentlemen—good night!
That all-weather notebook is the core piece of the Brooks-Range Field Organizer Package, a little pouch system that I’ve been using in an appropriate place: the jungles of Costa Rica. It has helped me keep my writing work organized with places for pens, my iPod Touch, a notebook, receipts, business cards, and whatever printed materials I pick up.
You don’t have to be a writer to make use of this though. Anyone who is traveling into the backcountry and wants to keep track of things would probably find this useful, as would rescue personnel, scout leaders, and adventure guides.
The organizer itself is rugged lightweight nylon in easy-to-spot yellow and red, closing with a Velcro tab. It has six pen loops and multiple pockets on the inside, which folds out. And hey, it’s made in the USA.
The Brooks-Range Field Organizer package lists for $22, which includes the waterproof notebook.
