Excellent small case with a great overall quality.
The denim material is strong and has not faded. It provides and adequate cushion
of protection while still being a slim case. The blue denim against the brown
leather has an attractive look, but moreover a very nice feel. For the price,
there is a lot of quality here. The zipper pull feels like something really
premium; the whole zipper system itself appears like it will end up being very
Inside, the case is small (as to be expected), but holds my pen, pencil,
erasers, leads, architect scale, and pocket knife just fine; there's plenty of
room to stuff in a couple of more pens and pencils, too. No real chance of
losing anything to the depths of this pouch.
One small gripe, the zipper 'snags' about 1/8th of the way into zipping shut
from the sag of the material. This can be overcome by holding it taught with two
hands, but it'd be nice if this was engineered a little nicer to where it would
always zip gracefully.
Otherwise this is perfect for those who don't wish to pack a whole suite of
writing stuff with them on the go; just a case of the basic stuff. In that
regard, this is pretty close to perfect for your needs.
