"The Pocket Naturalist Guides have been around for quite a while.
They are printed on card stock and laminated for durability. I have
been using the same set of guides for more than 3 years in my
hiking bag and they show very little wear. The lamination lets them
shrug off most dirt and even light rain." "I don't hit the trail
without them."--Matt, Blog "Jerking the Trigger "
"When you factor in the handy layout and informative contents of the guides, along with the top quality illustrations, the practically indestructible nature of the products and the extremely affordable prices it just makes sense to grab a variety of guides for your pack, kits, and car!" "I dumped half a pot of old, hot coffee on it to see if the higher temperature would have an effect or if the coffee would stain the [duraguide]. Once again I was foiled in my effort to ruin the guide."--Tim Stetzer "Woodsmonkey.com "
