    I have been using this log for over a year now. I have modified it a little bit to add items I found more relevant to my diving and removed items less relevant (such as removing scooter from the equipment list...as I don't plan on using one with any sense of frequency).

    I have attached the modified version I use and offer a great thanks to the OP for providing the original.

    On a recent diving trip, I finished up my PADI log and decided that the way forward is a binder with loose-sheet inserts. I was surprised at both the cost of the binder, and then the cost of the sheets.

    When I went looking for sheets I could print for free, a number of options came up. Most were sub-par, though some of the free technical dive inserts out there are fantastic, if a bit excessive. I just wanted a replacement for what I'm used to in the PADI books, nothing more complicated than the simple dive I do on occasion when I travel. They needed to not hardcode either metric or imperial units. The less text, the better.

    The PDF that started this thread was my favourite, especially for its use of icons and checkboxes. It's good, but I thought it could be a little cleaner, so I recycled a few of the icons and made my own, that I'd like to share back:

    I think it strikes a really nice balance between utility and design.

    I haven't read most of the thread and it's unlikely I'll run out of purchased pages for a long while (if ever). Mine is a binder type bought at the shop. Simplest way to add pages without buying new ones is to Xerox a blank one, no? Maybe too old school?

    I'd say that while most people have a printer at home, most don't have a photocopier. Then worry about aligning the pages correctly, whether you will actually fit two sheets per side and align correctly to photocopy on the other side, and you'll find it easier to simply print my PDF. Also, not sure if you looked at the design, but I'd say mine is nicer than pretty much anything you can buy.

    Thanks for sharing.
    I designed my own log book as well, but I was too lazy to use/draw graphics.
    And it is in German.
    I will see if I am satisfied with my layout on my next trip (in 3 weeks).
    If there is any interest, I am willing to share the final version and an English/Imperial version afterwards.

    This thread inspired me to print instead of buying. I used a model I found online (tab 1) and modified to have 2 dives per page (tab 2). In excel, so can be modified as needed. The "Depth" section looks off, but on my printer that's where it needs to be to come out inside the boxes (on 8.5" x 11").
    Printed on light cardstock with a good color printer (ie: office printer :giggle:), and sliced in half to fit my dive binder. I now have log pages for my next 600 dives :wink:

    Get yourself to an office supply store. They sell daily planners (nylon-covered, zipper-closing, three-ring binders) that will fit 5.5"x4.25" sheets. The shell is already naturally highly water-resistant, and you can always blast the exterior with a dose of Scotchgard if you want extra waterproofing.

    I know this has been dead for a while, but I just found it. I liked the OP's version, but the lines on the notes section were too close together for me. So I made the lines a little further apart. All credit to the OP.
