For notebooks, I'm a big fan of Whitelines (http://whitelines.se/products/
) in the squared grid. The paper is a sturdy weight in a light gray with white gridlines, which is meant to reduce contrast and allow your sketches to be more prominent. Also photocopies well. I'll use a small Behance Dot Grid Journal or Action Journal in meetings to combine notes and sketches.
For pens, I mix the Pilot G-2 in 1.0mm for thick lines (i.e., browser borders or greeked text) with a Uniball Signo RT gel in .38mm. Very fine point and fluid gel, so I can get some good details in sketching.

I like to sketch on grid paper that has very light grid lines. I've tried sketching in Moleskine notebooks, but I've found that the grid lines are too dark and the price is too high. I've currently settled on a very generically titled "Design Book" from Daiso which has a very light grid on A4 paper. 32 pages, soft (paper) cover, $1.50 each. Paper quality is not amazing, but that's okay for sketches that are meant to be relatively disposable. Anyone found anything better?
Also, I'm looking for recommendation on pens. The company ball point ones just aren't cutting it anymore.
