This case has two zippered compartments, one shallow and one deep. The shallow
one makes for easier access to items like erasers or sharpeners. I can't say
which of my cases are the best. I carefully pick each one, so I consider the
Otomo a great pick.
This case is nice. I like the Light/Mocha brown scheme, and the pocket outside
the case for easy yet secure access to my often used pencils. Even regular
woodcase that do not have a clip seems to stay put.
I liked it from the photo on Jetpens and I can tell you it's as good as it
The Wise-Walker gives me the feeling that I am wearing it instead of carrying
it. Aside from being well designed and stylish, nothing about this bag gives
strangers the impression it is expensive or has anything expensive in it. Now
that plastic bags are outlawed in California, it does come in handy for that
trip to the convenience store. It took a quart of milk,quart of orange juice and
two soup cans in the main compartment. If I have anything in the main
compartment,it's pretty easy to find another compartment for it. The other part
I have noticed is that the zippers are sturdy and have well designed pull tabs
on each and everyone making it easy to find,open,and close.
I rarely need to carry a laptop,so I might point out there is no padding for
one, be sure to use a sleeve. Tablets should fit nicely and again a sleeve or
folder is a good idea.
So far I like this bag and I have tried many out there. Lower priced ones do
make passing grade,but sooner or later wear out or or the zippers break. Sooner
or later I find myself not wanting to carry it around.
That's the thing about the Wise-Walker. I have not in the several weeks I have
owned it, gotten tired of it, and I find myself taking it with me whenever I go
out. I'll gladly give it five.
I have owned many 2mm lead holders,and this by far is a winner with solid metal
construction,a lead degree indicator,pocket clip, and the "knock" method of
advancing the lead. Keep the button pressed down and the lead can easily be
manually adjusted like the standard clutch models. The lack of a built in
pointer is not much of a deal breaker. Convenient as they are,some lead shavings
get trapped and leak out. I would leave that up to a dedicated lead pointer or
keep around a cheaper holder with a pointer. All in all it is one of the better
lead holders around.
