haha good points! I used to carry a smaller rhodia notepad, but the bulk started bugging me. Now I carry those rite-in-rain 2x4 notepads. Really small, but doesn't bother me. Along with a Pilot G2 and mini lead pencil. Really curious to see how these Magpul Daka pouches are. They sound just like Hypalon. Which I really like most of the time, unless it's against bare skin.
