FIELD NOTES Pony Express Leather Pouch

"I'm not writing it down to remember it later, I'm writing it down to remember it now"

Field Notes soft cover notebooks almost smell like grass. Stemming from agricultural roots, these classy notebooks help keep your thoughts in order for today.

Rest assured, much thought goes into each notebook thanks to the partnership between the Draplin Design Company of Portland, Oregon and Coudal Partners of Chicago.

Field Notes Partner Aaron Draplin, on finding an antique leather pouch stamped with a U.S. Postal Service insignia: “I marveled at the simplicity and beauty of the piece. Thick leather and beefy sewing, with an indestructible snap.”

It fits three Field Notes Memo Books perfectly. We took that as a sign that we should make some of these, so we partnered up with Tanner Goods of Portland, Oregon to produce them.

Each “Pony Express” Leather Pouch is hand-tooled from premium American leather. We did a small test run last year and it’s beautiful how this leather gets darker, softer, and more supple with time and use. We’ve just taken delivery of the first batch of these and more are on the way.
