Durable Media For Outdoors

Hi there gang,
Got a new project on at my work where I've been asked to come up with assessment media (books or pamphlets)which can been used in the outdoors.

So for example - a trainer would take this assessment book or sheet out into the field on his/her mountain bike or kayak to assess a trainee on practical stuff.

We currently have notebooks with waterproof paper that can be written on with Biro pen, but other then that, I don't know where to start looking for this type of printed media! Any one heard of this kind of stuff?

Thanks!

Tyvek synthetic paper is virtually indestructible (except for combustion), and the Fisher Space Pen ought to work anywhere except the ninth ring of Hell...

There is also Yupo synthetic paper.

There are children books made of soft rubber/plastic.

A good full-service print shop could show you sample books of various paper stocks that would work, and they could obtain full-size sample sheets for you. I'd suggest testing a sample to make sure that your pen can write on it.

Heavier-weight papers are less likely to flap around in the breeze. Also be sure the papers are secured in some way (3-ring binder or whatever) so you don't end up chasing after them.

Lamination is another option if the pages don't need to be written upon.
