Patagonia Iron Forge Field Journal
It’s not every day that one gets to bring to the field a journal that is made from 100% eco-friendly materials. And when one such a journal does come along, it is but natural that folks who have a penchant for showing concern for the environment will be grabbing it as fast as they possibly can. The Patagonia Iron Forge, despite its name, is as soft and gentle as Mother Nature itself. It features three unique materials that are quite rare in the making of a cover for a journal.
In most cases, manufacturers would go for genuine leather for its robustness and luxurious appeal. Some would also go for other materials. But Patagonia decided to go the eco-friendly route, combining tough hemp, soft cotton, and durable recycled polyester into one sturdy material for the journal’s cover. The same blend of materials serves as the cover to the Iron Forge’s recycled polyester canvas liner.
The outer is composed of 55% industrial-grade, heavy-duty hemp, 27% recycled polyester, and 18% ultra-soft, USDA-certified organic cotton. The use of organic cotton alone is already unprecedented in the design of a field journal, let alone the integration of hemp and recycled polyester into the blend. The lining of the Iron Forge is composed of super-strong 600-denier recycled polyester, complementing the eco-friendly design of the Patagonia field journal.
The Patagonia Iron Forge already comes with a Rite in the Rain notebook that gives you superior flexibility when writing your thoughts and other important notes regardless of how severe the weather conditions can be. There are multiple organization slots inside the Iron Forge, perfect for systematizing your collection of business cards, writing instruments, and even credit cards. Securing the contents is a full-length, heavy-duty zipper.
Regardless of the requirements at work, the Iron Forge Field Journal aims to deliver a note-taking experience like never before.
