Care Instructions

Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.

Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!

Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleanerfor additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

Amazing leather-bound hiking journal!

I was so, so pleased with the journal. Often times when ordering online one can be disappointed. Not the case this time. The Hiking Log is the perfect size to carry along in one’s backpack. The suggested topics to capture included on one page are very helpful. And the paper . . . Nice, heavy, high-quality paper that won’t show through- cut to resemble that of long ago, sewn into a beautiful, functional leather journal.
One of the best touches to add is one’s name embossed on the front- so personal and special!
I purchased two for gifts. Now I must get my own!

Great quality and a really nice book!

Wonderful Field Journal

I bought this to record my field observations. The journal is a great size, nice leather, and quality paper that can withstand watercolor paints. I wish there could be a journal where it combines the aspects of the biriding journal with the hiking journal, then it would be the best. My only true concern with this item was the packaging. The box interlocked with itself, but there was no packaging take anywhere on the box. It made me feel like the box could easily opened during transit or maybe damaged easier along the way. I also wish there were refills to buy for the paper. But overall great journal and great collaboration.

Badarak Tammie (Las Vegas, US)

I purchased the hiking journal as a retirement gift for a co-worker and when it arrived and saw the quality and detailed craftsmanship I bought one for myself as well. My friend plans on hiking and golfing after 44.5 years of nursing. I, on the other hand, have a few years before I retire but am called to the trails frequently. The journal is just the right size to fit in my day pack. I look forward to using it and saving them, yes I will probably purchase more, for my children to have to read about some of my adventures.
