Rite In The Rain’s waterproof paper and notebooks are relied upon for their 100% water-resistant properties, including their durability in the face of mud, sweat, oil and grease. Put simply, their paper can be written on whatever the weather conditions, and in any environment without smudging, tearing or disintegrating - you can even write underwater. With such unique properties, you’re likely to be wondering what pens work with Rite In The Rain? Do you need a special pen, or will any regular writing materials work? We answer all these questions in the following guide.
What Pens Work With Rite In The Rain Most Effectively?
Technically, you can use pretty much any type of pen or pencil with Rite In The Rain paper. Permanent markers, ballpoint pens and standard pencils will all write on the paper when it’s dry and won’t wash off. However, if the paper is soaking wet when you need to write on it, standard pens will make writing more difficult, and are likely to result in smudging.
That’s why we’d always recommend using a specialist Rite In The Rain pen or pencil, particularly if you need reliability in adverse weather conditions and challenging environments. For example, if you need to write underwater or on challenging military exercises, then you’ll most definitely need a Rite In The Rain pen or pencil. These are specially designed with pressurised cartridges to write through water, grease and mud. Let’s take a closer look at some of the specialist writing materials available.
All Weather Durable Pen
Built to function in extreme environments, this Rite In The Rain pen features a pressurised ink cartridge that can perform in temperatures up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit or 120 degrees Celsius, and as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit or -35 degrees Celsius. It will also function up to 35 ft underwater, at any angle. Enabling you to write crucial notes with ease in any environment, without smudging or tearing the paper, the ink used is exclusive to Rite In The Rain, and is easy to reload with refills that can be purchased separately. A comfortable grip channel enhances ease of writing, whilst a handy pocket clip makes it easy to keep the pen close to your person when you’re on-the-go.
All Weather Clicker Pen
Practical and resilient for use on the move, the All Weather Clicker Pen features a handy pocket clip so that you can keep it close to your person and ready to use when conducting work outside, or in any environment for that matter. You don’t need to worry about the pen leaking in your bag as the pressurised ink cartridge prevents this. This clever technical detail is also what enables the pen to function in extreme temperatures, both hot and cold. A powder coated brass case ensures durability in all conditions, giving you the ability to write literally anywhere - you can even write upside down underwater!
All Weather Pocket Pen
Easy to store in your pocket or bag, this compact waterproof pen enables you to write anywhere your travels take you, whatever the weather conditions. Upholding the same standard as the other all weather pens we’ve mentioned, the all weather pocket pen of course writes through water, sweat, mud and grease in temperatures from -35 degrees Fahrenheit to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Once again, this is all thanks to the pressurised ink cartridge. In addition to this, a convertible cap snaps securely onto the end of the pen in order to create a comfortable standard sized barrel for writing with.
Mechanical Clicker Pencil
We’ve been discussing the question of “what pens work with Rite In The Rain”, however it’s just as important to mention that a Rite In The Rain pencil works just as effectively. The mechanical clicker pencil is made using a robust 1.3mm dark lead that boldly marks waterproof paper just as easily as it marks lumber. The barrel is made from durable and recyclable ABS material, and benefits from a practical metal pocket clip. Designed with outdoor functionality in mind, a knurled metal-grip and one-hand lead advancement ensure glove-friendly handling in cold weather conditions.
What Not To Use With Waterproof Paper
When discussing “what pens work with Rite In The Rain” it’s also important to highlight what not to use. As we mentioned, we always recommend using a specialist Rite In The Rain pen or pencil as your top choice, however, either way it’s important to avoid water based inks. Water based writing materials like gel pens and highlighters will wash off, and so always remember to avoid these.
