100% love these highlighters!...
Verified Purchase
100% love these highlighters! I've used many different kinds from JetPens, and I like these the best. The packaging is very familliar to those who have the Staedtler felt-tip pens (or the rollerballs), and the colors are very bright. Also, it's true when the packaging says it's "Inkjet Safe". I have a habit of highlighting things in the skeleton slides my professor provides for o-chem, and these haven't smeared once. In comparison, my Uni Propus window highlighters and the Essenti soft highlighters both smear terribly. For the price, you really can't go wrong.

I thought I would hate this pencil. I mean, clicking the body?! Does it have stability? Is it comfortable to write with?

Yes. It has surprising stability. I didn't accidentally click it once, and it's nice not having to move my hand far to progress the lead. After quickly learning the motion of moving my thumb to press on the center of the pencil body, I never thought about it again, it just came naturally. Also, the grip is comfortable and not too soft (like the alpha-gel pencils). For me, it's just the right amount of firmness.

If you want to try something new, then I recommend this pencil. It'll get comments from your friends, and it's a great - and comfortable - writing tool for everyday use.

Best. Ever.

I am a super-duper pen/pencil snob, which I'm sure you can relate with (since you shop at Jetpens). I have a shoebox of expensive pencils, all for different tasks, for different moods, etc. But, this is the one I keep coming back to. My cheap, no-frills Kokuyo FitCurve. The eraser is sturdy, and it is so smooth to write with. I love the thickness - it's not too thick, not too thin, and it has just the right amount of softness so my hands don't cramp up if I write for long periods. This is the pencil my students try to steal from me during lab time, and I have to keep an eye on it so it doesn't walk away. If you want a great all-around pencil that will LAST, this is the one to buy.

I bought the navy one...
Verified Purchase
I bought the navy one (to match my navy Nomadic Wise-Walker A4 bag!). Since most of us are pen snobs, you understand why I want to have my best writing equipment with me. This pencil case is deceptively large. It's not as big as my Nomadic PE-08 Easy Classification Pencil Case (which is ridiculously huge), but it holds:

1 Westcott mini stainless steel ruler, Dr. Grip 4+1 pen, 1 Olno Tombow mechanical pencil, 3 EssentiSoft highlighters, 1 kuro toga pencil, 4 clicky Frixion pens, 1 kuro toga pencil lead cylinder, a black Boxy eraser, 1 Livescribe Sky Wifi pen, a pen refill, 2 Pentel Wow! pens (I like the shiny purple ones), 2 hair barrettes and hair ties, and a thumb drive. I could probably shove something else in there, but it would make it hard to zip.

Yes, you can get pencil cases that hold more than that, but this one is square, and it makes people go, "Wow! It's a tray and it's square!" The only downside is that I like to put my pencil cases in the mesh pockets on the outside of my Nomadic bag, but this one doesn't fit as well as my old Raymay double zipper case (probably because it's a square and not cylindrical). I end up snapping it around the strap of the bag or carrying it separately, which is a pain in the rear. If I had a different bag for school, I'm sure this wouldn't be an issue. If you're on the fence about this case, I would recommend it to you. You can see everything you could possibly use, and it's clever to boot.

I've had this bag for...
Verified Purchase
I've had this bag for about a month now, and I am totally and completely in love with it. This bag replaced my "high school sport style" anime bag (the blue with the grey handles) which held a lot, but I kept losing things in the giant big pocket. This bag has so many pockets that I don't know where to begin. I use this bag for college, and here are some of the various items that fit:

*11" HP dm1z laptop
*Three B5-sized Kyouko binders
*Four B5-sized 100 pg Kyouko Campus Notebooks
*Nomadic light blue PN-91pencil case
*iClicker
*A few separate pen sets (5 pen and 12 pens)
*A 5 pack of hilighters
*Kindle

etc...

There are keys and my cellphone too, plus my glasses case in one of the mesh outer pockets, sometimes my cell phone in the other if I don't zip it into the top pocket. My entire school life, save for my textbooks, fits in this bag. I'm surprised every single day by the amount of crap I can pull out of it and throw on my bed. There are items that I haven't even mentioned stashed in that bag, and I'm pretty sure I've already lost things in one of the many pockets this bag contains. I totally recommend it for the person who loves to never be without their stuff during the day.

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.
