The beauty of Rite in the Rain notebooks is that they are exceptionally easy to use. Standard ballpoint pens, permanent markers, fine liners and even pencils will all work when the notebook is dry and the ink shouldn’t wash off. However, if you want to get the most out of your waterproof notebook, a standard pen won’t really cut it. When the paper gets wet, standard pens will smudge and you’ll certainly struggle to properly get through oil, grease and mud or write underwater without the right writing implement. This begs the question, what actually is the best pen for Rite in the Rain notebooks?

The answer, of course, is a specialist Rite in the Rain pen. These pens feature a pressurised ink cartridge which is exactly what you need to write even in the most challenging environments. So, whether you’re planning to spend time out in the field or want to jot your ideas down when entirely underwater, make sure you’re writing with a Rite in the Rain pen - the best pen for Rite in the Rain notebooks. Here are your options:

An Alternative Option… A Waterproof Pencil

When choosing the best pen for your Rite in the Rain notebook, it’s important to consider whether a pen is actually what you need.
