I got this notebook in the mail yesterday, and this is actually a huge problem for me. I wish it was more obvious that this was an issue.
I think it's useful to look at posts like these which compare a variety of options rather than looking at reviews for a single product.
Moleskin makes a great pocket notebook. Better than Field Notes, IMO.
IMO Moleskine is the Starbucks of notebooks. It's a crowded category, but for me, the Leuchtturm is the clear standout for quality and fit-and-finish, head and shoulders above the Moleskine.
