    I use the G.I. Memorandum books for work purposes. Mostly because I archive these books and like the bound nature of the pages. They have a great durable soft cover already and are hard to beat right out of the box, but I did want a metal cover.

    I just happened to see these at a reasonable price point so I pulled on it. The others I have seen were nicer, stainless, titanium, etc., but really pricey for me.

    I use the memoranda books, both the short and tall versions. I was just looking around on the web and happened to see that a popular aluminum clipboard company had a new folder version for memo book size notepads. To my surprise the demo photo of the product showed a green memoranda book inside. It was a great day under a swift sunrise...

    Curse you!! :furious: I just bought a leather cover for my memo book. Now I'm wondering how to justify an aluminum one. :unsure:

    They are actually pretty reasonably priced now that I found them.

    When I got mine in the mail I was surprised to find that it came with a Fresh Memorada book inside.

    Wow. That's cool. Just out of curiosity, will it fit a top bound or side bound wire notebook too?

    This is it closed on the book bound memo pad. I don't think a wire bound memo book would fit.

    That is awesome! I make my own covers out of leather ala Midori. I found a bunch of tutorials on YouTube. Now I gotta look up these.

    For anyone else hunting these down, try a Google search with the keywords: "Saunders Recycled Aluminum Notepad Holder w/Writing Pad - Silver - Pocket Size"

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. But the point is, I found it. :D

    Re: black. I saw that, but the "silver" was half the cost of the black, so everything else being equal... ;)
