This edition will polarise the “Field Nuts”. In fact, if you know where to look, debates already rage.
There is one universal opinion, with which I concur. The video is funny.
I work really hard to get the new editions across the pond as quickly as possible. Then, Clare holds my personal stash, hostage. It's a terrible torture. In fairness, she does it to keep shipping charges down, so it’s for my benefit.
Therefore, I always peruse the web for “hot takes” on new editions, to experience the excitement vicariously.

“Field Notes come in three-packs, and are saddle stitched. Spirals? SPIRALS? These, are WRONG.”
“Always ready. That’s me. I carry everything necessary, nothing superfluous. The colours clash with my personal arsenal of firearms, knives and throwing stars. Although, I have been thinking about trading up to a Kraft-coloured armoured personnel carrier with orange go-faster stripes...”

It's by Field Notes. It's awesome. You think it’s not awesome? You're dead to me. BLOCKED.”

“It's 70# paper. So, with a dry ink and a fine nib, the paper will be OK. THIS is the Field Note for ink.”

I mock. Mostly myself, as I wander through all the categories above.
I love the look of these. I can see them in the garage and in the glove compartment. I think the spiral peeking from the jeans pocket will look great. The colours are a nod to early Limited Editions. Buy them here.
The books, and the video, are produced with a wink, and that, more than anything, is Field Notes to me.
Right - I’m off to find a singlet...
