+ holds a lot
+ durable and sturdy
+ lots of compartments
+ this particular color dirtied easily
+ filling it too much causes some things to fall out
(but you'd need to put like, 30 pens in there)
I bought this pencil bag in the navy blue (for my friend) and light gray, and
while I'm really happy that it holds pretty much everything I could possibly ask
for, it's gotten quite dirty in the couple of months I've had it. In fact, it
was only a couple of weeks in my possession before it started getting these
strange black marks on it. My friend on the other hand, who has had it just as
long as I have, has hers in really good condition without any sort of marking (I
wonder if it's because I've put it somewhere where it would have gotten dirty,
but I'm not really negligent with my things). I kind of expected marking to
occur being that the pencil case is such a light color, so I don't really mind
too much, especially now since I've had it for so long. If you're the type that
wants everything super clean and neat and just as perfect when you just bought
it, then perhaps you should check out a different color (another friend of mine
got red and hers was in good condition, as far as I could tell).
Like on the reviews of its other-colored brethren, it holds a lot! In the main
compartment, I hold two stacks of sticky notes (3"x3" and 1.5"x2"); a small
weekly agenda; an assortment of around 14 pens, pencils, and highlighters; and
an eraser. I could still hold a lot more, too. In the zippered compartment, I
have a small pair of Fiskars scissors, white-out, pencil leads, and binder
clips. I tend not to use the velcro'd compartment very much because it's rather
loud (quite awkward in a classroom), but I used to hold smaller, things in there
like pencil leads, sticky-notes, etc.
When I first got this pencil bag, I used to overstuff it so that things would
fall out the top (not often, though). When it's super full, it gets quite lumpy
(and it's still rather lumpy with all that I have in it), so sometimes it's hard
to get it to fit neatly among other things in perhaps your bag or backpack, but
it's not really that big of a deal. I haven't tried putting regular wooden
pencils inside of it, so I'm not sure how it marks the orange inside (which is a
lovely shade and makes it quite easy to find things).
That aside, I'm really happy with this product. It's the third pencil case I've
gotten from JetPens (the first one not being very useful, the second being
better but small), and though I'm on the lookout for new pencil cases, I've been
so satisfied with this one that I haven't really found the need! Though it's not
perfect, it's not so bad that it'd warrant a star marked off, so 5/5 stars it
I reviewed this...

I reviewed this once but I have updated my bag with more stuff!
In the first and biggest pouch contains all my graphite wooden pencils, favorite
eraser, a glue stick, pencil sharpener, and a few multiliners. In the second
pouch contains my Tachikawa G-Pen, Pilot Hi Tec pen, Seed Radarknock Eraser, two
cases of pencil lead, my White Gelly Roll pen, and Pilot mechanical pencil.
I still have room in the first pouch btw. :)
And in the last and lower pouch holds my scissors, graphite lead and charcoal
sticks, Seed Eraser refills, one case of pencil lead, two pencil sharpeners,
G-Model nibs, and marker.
I still have existing space in the first and last pouch:)
It doesn't feel heavy. I have also had this bag for probably over a year and the
color still looks fresh and hasn't torn or ripped anywhere.
Very pleased with this bag!
