Best pencil case ever!...
Verified Purchase
Best pencil case ever!

The inside is not as red as it seems in the info pictures. It's more of a true orange, just very vivid. The front and back panels are slightly cushioned as well as the middle panel. Nice touch.

This case holds a lot! In the large compartment I keep 8 gelly rolls, 6 pens, 2 highlighters, and there's room for I'd guess 6-10 more pens. In the front long compartment I keep my more frequently used pens. I keep 4 in there but you could fit 5 maybe 6 if the pens are small. In front of that, I keep two lip glosses which easily fit even with all my other pens in there. The tiny little compartment I keep a chapstick in. The compartment is about 1/2 inch wider than a chapstick is long so it is bigger than I thought it would be.

For my uses, this case is great. I like having a big section where I keep my color pens and highlighters while keeping my most commonly-used pens in the front smaller section. The front tiny little pocket is not essential but super nice to have and just so cute!

I really love the grey color of this case. It's not a blue-based grey but more of a brown-based grey. (To most people, it's probably just "grey" though. =P ) This case is very good quality and I look forward to writing a new review after this has been lugged in my bag for a while. But, being a Nomad product, I'm sure it'll hold up nicely.

I LOVE this pen! The moving clip is really fun to play with. The navy ink is gorgeous too. The pen writes very well especially for the price. In comparison to the regular Zebra Sarasa, the grip on this version is 8 mm closer to the end of the pen. This is great for me because I grip my pens close to the end and with most other pens I end up only using part of the grip. However, the pen is not the most attractive I've seen. The visible threads inside the pen where it unscrews look really ugly and the hazy white/clear plastic towards the tip looks weird especially when the rest of the pen has completely clear plastic. But that's just me being picky. I like the grip and the clip so much that those outweigh any minor quibbles I have with the design.

I love these pens! They definitely take a long time to dry, but I think that's par for the course with gelly roll type pens. In this set you get five NEON pens and five jewel tone pens. The neons are excellent and are super opaque even on dark paper. The jewel tone pens are not too dark but dark enough that they can be used for note-taking. Overall I really like the colors in this set.

P.S. Not sure if the description makes this clear, but all the colors in this set are cremes, no hint of any shimmer whatsoever.

Not the absolute best pen I've ever ever used but pretty darn good. Indigo ink is gorgeous! I prefer the Sarasa Push Clip instead though. 1) The push clip has the clip which you can play around with and 2) the grip on the push clip is 8 mm closer to the end of the pen than this version. I hold my pens pretty close to the end and with most pens I end up barely using the grip. Also, the body is a dark clear plastic in this version which I thinks looks very nice. On the push clip version, it's plain clear and doesn't look as nice.

It is definitely erasable but I don't know about the highlighter part. The violet color is too dark to do much proper highlighting.

I love this pen. It's definitely a marker but erases so cleanly! JetPens does a great job of accurately representing the color of this pen in pink.

Awesome pen! The color is a very true "pink pen" type pink. I'm not sure why they say pencil-like in the description. I think it's because the pen looks like a pencil. It writes like a gen pen though. Does erase nicely, no skipping.

Verified Purchase
This review is ONLY about the color, not the general pen itself. I have six of these pens (and I LOVE them!) and the only one I hate is this orange one. It writes super super light that it's not good for note-taking but only for underlining in a book. I'd say it's more goldenrod than orange. (In contrast, my Zebra Sarasa in orange from jetpens is a true, vibrant orange.)
