RocketBook Notepad

 

The Everlast notebook provides a pen and paper experience. Although it feels like a traditional notebook, the Everlast is endlessly reusable and connected to all of your favourite cloud services. When you write using any pen from the Pilot Frixion line, your writing sticks to Everlast pages like regular paper. But add a drop of water… and the notebook erases like magic.
