I bought the Teffa Book...
December 6, 2014
I bought the Teffa Book Style case (
) a while back and I love it to pieces, but it became so quickly overloaded with
all of my art junk that it wasn't feasible to lug it around in my backpack,
nevermind separate sketchbooks.
I ordered this bag with these requirements in mind:
-must be relatively flat to slide into my backpack/bag without making it bulky.
-must have space for at least one medium sized sketchbook, multiple pens,
eraser, sharpener etc.
-must be easy to open and organise, so nothing tumbles around or out of the bag.
This pretty well hit all the marks! I currently have two 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch
sketchbooks comfortably in the large pocket, a mini travel sketchbook in front
pocket behind the velcro pouch on the right, a brushpen in the pen-holder and an
eraser and sharpener in the left velcro pocket with room to spare.
The only problem I've encountered with it is limited pen/pencil space. Aside
from the on skinny pen-pocket, the other compartments aren't really suited to
holding drawing utensils. I have two fountain pens in the front pocket, but they
bulge out a bit and make the velcro close funny, and I have three other tools
that I had to put in the large front pocket sticking out of the top. They
haven't fallen out yet, but I'd feel better if they were more secure. Maybe if
there were just another extra long pocket I could zip or snap closed? Anyway, it
hasn't caused me any grief. I wish there were a 4 1/2 star rating.
To close on a positive point, I really like the zipper going all the way around
the edge. The bag can open completely and almost lie flat, so it's easy to grab
things from the bottom. The whole thing is also really sturdy and keeps its
shape. I'm not worried about it bending! As a bonus, I love the colour.
Overall, very happy with the purchase!
