I got it as a gift. I love it. Use the journal to write diary every day.
Will get more in the future
The quality of the cover is good. However, the first page is glued to the cover higher than the rest of the pages, which makes the journal hard to write on. The pages are actually glued in different places, so as the journal gets used, the pages don't align, which makes it hard to write on. I also wish the journal would be bigger, the same B5 size as the Leuchturm journals. If it's possible to rebrand a Leuchturm 1916 journal, I think the usability would be much better.
I always did like the logo for HIC. I am going to use mine to jot down notes and critique on improving my copy.
