I found it almost impossible to use this tape, and so did my husband. The dispenser is cute but not at all functional.

I carry over 30 pens every day and this case works great. The middle compartment is a nice big open space, so you really can't sort (not an issue for me). The side zipper holds more stuff--I use it for washi tape and stickers. It is very strong and lightweight. I can almost always fit a glue stick and small scissors in as well.

The pockets under the flap are nice too. If you aren't much of a sorter, and carry a lot of stuff--this is the case for you. If you like to keep things separated and organized, it may be less useful. Strong zipper--that is usually what goes for me on cases because I overstuff them.

Lots of sparkle! And these last pretty long too.

Beautiful staper, but I wasn't paying attention to the fact that it needs special staples, and that's just too special for me.

I wanted a smaller bag that I could carry to meetings, and this is perfect!
Holds (at the same time):
7 inch android tablet
compact filofax planner
cell phone
loose pens and usually a 10 pack of staedler fineliners

I clean it with a Tide stick and it always looks good. You couldn't use this as an "everything" tote but it works great if you are a frequent bag-switcher like I am.

It's a great design, and holds it's shape nicely. However after month of use, I had some problems.
1. The canvas gets dirty. I had navy blue--which should have been ok--but after about a month it started to look dirty and dingy and picked up everything from the bottom of my bag. The case is made of canvas like fabric, not nylon.

2. If you fill it really full all the time, eventually the zipper gets hard to use. That's why I stopped using the case--the zipper pretty much failed.

3. I found it harder to use than I wanted because I still had to rummage around to find the pens I wanted. I think it works best if you have maybe 8 pens in there, and when you open it up they sort of line up in a row. I wanted something I could keep on my desk but it really didn't work for that purpose.

I would recommend this if you keep your bag spotless OR just want to leave it in one place. And if you carry about 8 pens at once it would be fine. I generally have about 14-18 and that is too many to make the best use of this case.
