Nock Co. Maryapple Two Memo Book Bi-Fold

2 03 2014

It was with much excitement and internal delighted shrieking that my modest reward tier from Nock Co.’s Kickstarter arrived (I resisted getting All the Cases, because I’ve got to be fiscally responsible / leave more cases to buy later at some point). I can safely say they live up to the hype.

USA! USA!

USA! USA!

Naturally, I’m comparing this to the prototype I received, but it’s not a direct apples-to-apples comparison—it’s more Maryapples to Hightowers.

The finished product is even better than the prototype—the edges are neatly finished and sealed, and look at that solid bar tacking between the pockets! You’d probably have to Hulk out hardcore to get that to even begin to rip.

Or stab it. But I’m not going to try that

The outside of the Maryapple is made of a heavy 1000D nylon with durable water resistant coating, inside is smooth pack cloth (also with DWR coating)—it feels sturdy. I don’t worry about throwing this baby in bags or pockets. And this mandarin/mango color combo looks great.

Looks great, sounds delicious. Just try to tell me you'd turn down a mandarin mango smoothie

Inside you’ve got two notebook pockets—remember everything you could fit in the Hightower notebook pocket? Multiply that by two. I’m currently pairing my Quo Vadis Miniweek with a 9x14cm Clairefontaine notebook, but sometimes I’ll throw my phone in there instead. Why not? It fits.

Fun fact: the cases are named after mountains in Georgia!

This notebook holder is high quality, made-in-the-USA goods. I can’t wait until they finish filling the Kickstarter orders and open for general business (keep your eyes on Nock Co. and your wallets ready). I’m pretty sure this Maryapple is just dying to have a Sassafras to go along with it!
