To celebrate Spring 2018 Field Notes has released the limited edition FNC-38 “Coastal” memo books. Field Notes has been jazzing up their product line with limited edition releases for a while now. This latest limited edition I feel is really nicely done with gold foil topography maps and reticle grid on the cover. Field Notes are one of the most widely carried everyday carry note and memo books on the planet with a wide array of designs to fit lots of different needs.

Field Notes FNC-38 Coastal
The “Coastal” limited edition set of 3 memo books features either East or West coastlines on the covers

This limited edition release includes two 3 memo book sets featuring designs of the west and east coast of the United States. As you probably know or guess Field Notes makes all of their paper products in the United States and also include some pretty nerdy specs outlined below. You can purchase the “Coastal” set for $12.95.
