This is a very pretty,...

This is a very pretty, and very well-made pencil case. The color is vivid and
cheerful. The zipper compartment opens very wide for easy access. The zipper
compartment on the flap is nice, but only for super flat items, as anything more
will really bulk up the overall size. You can put a bit more in the compartment
under the flap, but again, better to stick with low-profile flatter items. I
carried this in my EDC for a few months, but eventually moved to other pencil
cases that had better organization and easy access for pens/pencils without
having to dig around. The only really bad thing about this case are the two
velcro closures under the flap. First, they are large and black and really stand
out against the pretty pink. Pink velcro would have been much nicer. But OK,
that's small potatoes, but the worst part is how very loud that velcro is every
time you open the flap. It's very heavy duty velcro, and in my opinion, one
velcro tab of lesser strength would easily hold the flap shut. I tried to
journal incognito at work and every time i went into my PE09 you'd hear
RIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP echo thru the office and people would look around to see what
it was ;) Eventually I removed one of the Velcro tabs (which wasn't as easy as
you'd think). Later I retired my PE09 and thought I'd find a use for it outside
of my EDC, but now i'm thinking I may just sell it. Bottom line, nice quality,
pretty, but loud, obtrusive, super-large & loud velcro sorta spoiled it for me.
And you have to dig for your pens.
