For many years, I was a Moleskine user, until I stumbled across this journal. Just like Moleskines, it's a comfortable size for throwing in a handbag or backpack (5.75"x8.25"), and just like Moleskines, it has a handy pocket at the back and an elastic band to keep it closed. But unlike Moleskines, this lovely little journal also numbers the pages, and has a lovely index in the front, so that you can keep everything organized and tabulated. And of course, I get the unlined version, so that I can sketch, draw and doodle unencumbered. A lovely new find.
