I worked with my store team and nature journalers in our community to design and thoroughly field test my Custom Nature Journaling Bag, and I am thrilled with the results. This bag is lightweight, makes my journaling supplies easy to organize and grab, and it stands up to the rigors of fieldwork. Available only in my store, this bag is made in the USA for the Naturalist Store by Flowfold, a Maine-based company that makes top quality gear that is light, strong, and durable.
Available in Olive Green or Navy Blue
