These refills are unquestionably a value at the price offered. The paper is very heavyweight and so useful for a myriad of things you can do with it…write on it, glue or tape things, easily tear out if needed…I could just go on and on with how great a value and convenient they are. Couple it with the Colonel’s legendary service and it’s a no-question situation. I just ordered a refill and got: A great shipping box, a refill (unbelievably carefully wrapped in craft paper), a little moon pie, a leather coaster and other little documents. All for the price of a refill that arrived three days after ordering it and even that with free shipping. I’m stunned as to value received, literally.
Why not five stars, you may ask? The reason there is two fold but my underlying theme is because I’m extraordinarily picky. Off the charts picky. I am a writer and love writing with a fountain pen and one with an EF nib at that. This paper’s tooth and weight is almost ‘too’ heavy for a fountain pen. I find a roller or gel to be far better on this paper. So that’s my first note. My second is that when laced into the No 9’s spine, it literally becomes very hard to write on the second half of the journal’s pages as the paper is so heavy it wants to ‘fight you’ as you write. As a work around that others may find value in, I did discover that if you’ll take the journal refill, before installing it, and lay it flat and fold each pager over, right to left, as if you were just opening the pages individually, it allows some flex in the spine. And overall better solution would be if the Colonel offered an alternative refill that is better suited to pure writing; meaning good paper but not as heavyweight as this refills. That would also allow easier flexing while writing and the paper would fold / stay out of the way so much easier. That’s a small gripe but, being a writer, I live in my journals, so I tend to notice the nuances of each unique style. But for value received, nobody on the plane it close to what this refill provides.

I have been using a Colonel Littleton Journal to chronicle my sailing adventures since 2008. It holds up well even in a marine environment and inspires me to keep up with our travels as we sail to far off places. The quality is excellent and service is superb. You can’t ask for more than that

I am on my seventh refill. I love the weight of the paper, how well the holes line up every time and the ease of replacing it. The journal is pretty stiff at first but loosens up with use. I love it, and plan on using it for years,

Amazing customer service. I love the feel and weight of this paper. The unlined refills are perfect for artwork and journaling together. The weight of the paper also makes it great for paints and glueing in keepsakes. I’ve had my leather journal now for a few years and it just keeps getting better with age. Please don’t ever stop making these great refills!!!

Same paper that comes with the journal. Heavy weight and almost too heavy. I took one star away as it would nice if the lined paper was lined on both sides and the hole pattern matched a standard evenly spaced hole set.

Excellent quality paper that fits the original journal perfectly. Fast delivery; I ordered on Friday, received on Saturday (with standard shipping)! A fine Tennessee company.
