I do not understand how...
, April 12, 2011
I do not understand how someone could honestly write that they can only hold 5
pens or pencils in this case. I own both the small size and large, inside the
small I carry 2 Kaweco sport fountain pens (large diameter), 1 Propus
Highlighter, and one jet stream ball point pen. It is tight but never a problem
zipping or bulging. I don't carry the large as often but I can fit much more in
that than in the small, do the math. This case can fit more than "5 pens or
Very sturdy, opens well and stands perfect even when loaded to the max. Very
nice product especially if you have a bunch of stuff in your pack and don't want
the case to bend or get beat up.

Great little handy thing. I bought this to dodge my previous problem of having
so many pencils stuffed in one bag that I'd always have to go digging for
things. This works beautifully and carries just what I need along with some
extras. Contents as of now: 1 6-inch ruler, 3 drafting pencils, 1 container of
Ain lead, 2 small eraser refill tubes, 1 Tuff Stuff knock eraser, 1 Pilot
envelope addressing pen, 1 Zebra brush pen, 1 3-color Slicci multipen, 2 Style
Fit single slim pens, and a Boxy eraser that fits in the gap between the pens
and the top of the case. Works just as advertised and has protective shell-like
sides and a small footprint on my desk. My one issue is that the zipper does
tend to get stuck at the top because of the way the end of the zipper track
tucks into the case and dangles loose there - you have to pinch the top while
beginning to zip it closed. This could be remedied by a few stitches or a dab of
Overall a nice solid case that does exactly what I want it to. I've had it for a
while now and abused it in an overstuffed bookbag - it hasn't taken a bit of
damage. You're paying for very solid construction.

crap, the zipper gets stuck at the top, hard to view all pens when case is
filled, cheap material and bad design, I really wished i did not waste my money
on this. I can't believe this item had such a high rating. Extremely

I buy several mechanical pencils every year, and have trouble parting with any
of them. As a result, my collection has grown to a point where even the ones
that I like to use don't fit in my pencil case. This led me to this product.
In general I like the design, and I may buy the smaller one as well so that I
can sort my pencils by manufacturer and have a color-coded set of pencil cases.
This particular case is currently holding 9 pencils and there is significant
room to spare. It does stand up on a desk as shown, and this can be convenient
when your large desk is as cluttered as mine is.
Based on prior reviews and my own experience with this case, it seems like the
zipper can be a problem. If the case is to open all the way, and form a stable
base, then on mine (as is the case in the review written by Lil) when you fully
open this, there is a strong tendency for the zipper to get stuck, and this is
annoying. I tend to open the case once or twice a day, and so for me, this is a
small annoyance. For a student moving from classroom to classroom to library to
cafe to... this could be a more significant annoyance. I don't know whether it
is a common feature and some just don't open the case fully, or whether it is a
common flaw on a fraction of these pencil cases.
All in all I like it, and would buy it again. If the zipper issue were fixed, I
would give it the full five stars, but with this problem, four stars.
