Hello, everyone today, I’m doing a comparison between a passport size, Travelers Notebook and the x17 Mindpapers in the size, a7.

So let’s get started with the travels notebook. As I said, it’s a passport size. The dimensions are: 13.5 by 10 centimeters or 5.25 by 4 inches.

Comes with an enclosure, and the inside notebooks are 5 by 9 centimeters or 4.9 by 3.5

Then you ordered this, it comes with Three random inserts. I got a lined one like cream-colored off white paper, six millimeter ruling and then has a monthly calendar in the middle that I got and then another my notebook.

I do there’s a writing sample here. You have a pencil, a ballpoint pen.  The 4 Mnilimeter a gel pen and a 7 millimeter gel pen and then the Pilot  Metropolitan, the fountain pen, there’s a little bit of feathering, but not too bad and the nice motion right there .

In the back you have some ghosting, but not really any big through if the fountain pen, which is surprising because this paper is pretty thin, is probably like 65 grand paper and my guess, and so you could actually use a fountain pen in this.

So this is made by the company ZLYC. I did an in-depth review of this brand on my channel. So if you want to learn more about this particular notebook check out my other entry.

As I said you get three random inserts and what I like about this type of notebook is that you can organize your thoughts quite loosely and because everything’s being held together. It’s just notebooks that are being held together by a flap of leather. So this is a black, genuine leather and this particular one and then you can have you know like to do do lists in one notebook and then your calendar in the middle and then a project that you’re riding on in another notebook or journal. And what you wanna use it for and then, when one’s fully just switch it out, you don’t have to discard the entire notebook. So it gives you quite a bit of flexibility in how you organize your thoughts and your notes and your ideas. So I like this type of notebook for that reason and that’s the travels notebook.

Let’s check out the x17 Mindpapers. As I said, this is a size, a7, so the dimensions on this are 10.5 centimeters by 7.4 centimeters or the 2.9 by 4.1 inches.

So essentially, what this is is just a piece of leather that holds together 30 index cards. It comes with 30 index cards can of course, put in more or less index cards as well, and then it’s held together by this clip, it’s kind of looks like a paper clip, and then it comes with this little black pencil. And then you know: here’s the pen, it built-in colic pen holder, so you can put any pen that fits this size in there carry it around with you, and this is made from vegetable tan leather. It’s a color, coniac and you can see here the x17 logo on the clip in the back as well.

It says Mindpapers here in the back and it’s a beautiful belt another. As I said, you have quite a bit of structure here on the leather, so every of these little notebooks every single one will look a little bit different than the one I have, and it’s take this off. So it’s pretty much.

As I said, just the paper clip, it has this little felt thing right there to protect another, but still when I take it off, I scratch the leather. So I hope this doesn’t get too bad, but I believe it comes with a warranty on the leather. So if it gets too bad, you might actually get a replacement for it,.

This is the leather and then here are the index cards it comes with. So I did a writing sample on these as well, I believe, is around 100 gram paper, yellow cream, colored index cards, so here’s the pencil, ballpoint pen, 4 Milimeters, gel pen,7 millimeter jump in and then the fountain pen Pilot metropolitan so performs pretty well with everyone. Each and every one of them. And then in the back there is no ghosting, no bleed through no nothing also because this is an index card. It’S quite a bit thicker than regular paper that you would find in a notebook.

I like this idea a lot because it allows you a lot of freedom and how to organize your notes. And I think it’s great for preparing a speech that you have to hold or you have to learn vocabulary and you know just have it loose it together or you try to do some mind mapping you just line this up and you know switch things around or If you doing some creative writing – and you don’t know yet how you want to organize certain topics or chapters you just you know, go ahead and just switch up the cards randomly, you know reorganize your thoughts very easily. So I think for that it is a great concept.

When you purchase it, it actually comes in here. So this would be, I guess, extra storage for index cards that you’ve already used, that you can put on your shelf and then a little elastic and there’s some information on the product.

It also comes with this little periphery. It is micro perforation on the paper, little notebook in the size, a7,  5millimeter ruling.

I just probably just put this in there with the index cards and just have it all together in one place, and this also comes in different sizes. If you want it smaller or bigger, that’s no problem, just you know whatever size you want, you can order.

If you compare it to the passport size Traverlers in the book, you can see it’s actually quite little, so this will easily fit in any pocket or a little purse that you carry around this is some of you may know. This is already a pretty small notebook and then this you know it’s even smaller, so very easy to carry around with you.

So I like both notebooks for what they offer a missus, a not even kidding. We call this a notebook, It’s just a way of organizing your T’s and keeping all you index cards in one place more than you know, an actual notebook but yeah anyways. This was my comparison between the passport sized Travelers Notebook and the x17 Mindpapers.
