Great case! I use it...
Verified Purchase
Great case! I use it for a medium sized sketch kit, and it holds quite a bit. Stuffed full (and I mean STUFFED), it measures about 7.75" long, 3.5" wide, and 2.5" deep. So, its a bit smaller than the description states.

I've posted several photos on Flickr showing all that it holds for me: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wendiwells/sets/72157630777181690/

I absolutely love this...
Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this pencil case, but it's much smaller than the rest of Nomadic's line. The loops on the insert are of varying sizes, so I have a thin pencil, two pens, and a knock eraser in the loops (from the inside out). The innermost loop is almost unusable unless I had a very thin pencil/pen because, if I did put a pencil in it (like my Kuru Toga High Grade 0.5 pencil) it would be really difficult to zip shut. In the eraser holder at the top, the small black Boxy eraser fits great, but anything bigger and it wouldn't shut all the way. I have a 6" metal ruler and a bunch of book tabs in the mesh pocket, and 10 various pens/pencils in the main part of the pocket along with a Bic Wite-Out Mini (from Staples). I tried to put pencil leads in the pocket along with the eraser, but they're just a bit too long. They do fit if you wedge them between the eraser and the top!

All in all, I love this case, even if it isn't as giant as the one that holds 24 colored pencils (with room!). It's sturdy, the blue is really pretty, and the orange inside matches the inside of my Nomadic bag. I totally recommend it if you love functional pencil cases.

This pencil case it not...
Verified Purchase
This pencil case it not bad, but it's smaller than I thought it would be. I use the case anyway, and everything fits, but I really wanted to be able to fit a pair of scissors in there too, but with my millions of Dr. Grips and Propus highlighters and Signos, the scissors don't fit. Oh well, i'll just save up to buy the other case that's bigger. I wish they made them in different colors though. I thought I would like this one but when it came, it looked greyish to me. Meh, it's a nice durable case anyway.

The Good: Over all it...
Verified Purchase
The Good: Over all it is a good case. Medium in size. Seems bigger on the inside and holds more then I expected. Huge fan of the page-like pen holder flap. If I was only grading it by functionality, I would give it 4ish out of 5.

The Bad: The color is completely different in real life. I always order things with some wiggle room on color expectation, but I did still expect the color to at least resemble the crisp light blue it's shown as. Instead I was very disappointed to find out that, while it is at least BLUE, it's a very drab and muted blue. In fact, from just a few feet away it actually looks like the case is dirty and old. Also, I'm not a fan of the fairly pointless (to me) flap/pocket thingy located on the inner back of the case.

Conclusion: I initially wanted to bump it down to 2 stars, but I don't think it's fair to grade because of a bad (be it QUITE bad) color representation since that is no fault of the case. However I will still take a mark off simply because the blue that was chosen was a bad choice. I will surely use it, but will keeping my eyes open for something more aesthetically pleasing.
