So I haven't bought a moleskine notebook in a long while and I can't seem to find the ones with the thick plain almost Manila paper, all of the new ones have the super thin paper. I was hoping to find the thicker paper so I could do some open air painting with gouache of some landscapes and buildings.. Does anyone know is the old style gone for good?
Moleskine makes a variety of types of notebooks. The one you are looking for should be labelled Sketchbook and not Notebook or something else. There are also some that are made with watercolour paper in them, which may be more ideal for the painting you want to do--again, this should be clearly labelled on it. I'd check out an art store as typically they carry multiple different kinds of Moleskines unlike a regular bookstore which may only have the notebook paper which is pretty poor for drawing on. So yeah, sounds like you just bought the wrong line of Moleskine.

I can't find a large moleskine sketchbook hardcover...hard to come by here in the capital of California.
I know exactly what you're talking about because I use this particular moleskine all the time. The one you want is the large sketchbook with a BLUE label wrapped around it. That's the one with the thicker paper surface. The rest of the product line has thinner surfaces for note taking. There is also a 'watercolor' moleskine but it has a, I believe, pink label wrap and has a bit of a thicker surface with cold press texture.So I haven't bought a moleskine notebook in a long while and I can't seem to find the ones with the thick plain almost Manila paper, all of the new ones have the super thin paper.

It should say 'Moleskine Sketchbook' on the label with the blue color, not 'Moleskine Notebook'.
This is the one you should be looking for: http://img1.imagesbn.com/images/101810000/101812137.jpg
