My rite in the rain notepad was in my pocket while we were fishing in the Smoky Mountains two weeks ago and when I went under not once but twice the notepad was still legible to read and also write on. My camera did not work after it went under and lucky for me my meter was in a safe bag and my phone was back in the vehicle. The rite in the rain notepad just needed to be left out to dry over night and I was still using it the whole time, wet and dry. The good thing about taking a dip with the rite in the rain notepad probably was now it doesn't have all my sweat in it any more. I now can go back and look at my BG diary and all my scouting notes any time I want, rain or shine. This product is definitely worth the money. The 88 cent notepad with all my Italy honeymoon notes in it was washed once and never survived.
The rite in the rain has several styles and sizes but for some reason I just love the outdoor journal size and it has a handy ruler on the back. Maybe in the future I will try another model but for now why change what works.
