I've had one of these in the Navy pattern for a while now, and decided that a
second one could come in useful. I expected the fabric to be exactly the same,
but this one feels slightly but noticeably heavier and stiffer. Not a problem,
just a slight difference. And perhaps it will soften up with use.
Like the Navy one, it will easily hold 6 pens or pencils of varying sizes, and
then probably a few more, depending on exactly what you want to put in there.
With longer pens, particularly with fountain pens, it seems that the pocket
clips won't come down far enough to clip on to the inside pocket of this wrap,
but with the whole thing secured with the cord, it's unlikely that they would
come out by accident.
The pattern of the fabric is attractive, but the effect is slightly marred by
the manufacturer's tag that you can see on the outside in the pictures.
Luckily, with care, it is possible to pick the threads and remove this without
damaging the case. It looks much better without it.
