I ordered this case on Wednesday, and received it today (Friday); fast shipping
and excellent service! Thanks JetPens! :-)
The case is well made, with all the inside seams stitched down with covering
fabric. The fabric has a nice weight to it, not as thick as what you'd find in a
backpack or messenger bag, but definitely thicker and better quality than the
fabric you find in cheap pencil bags you see in MalWart and K-Mart at
The two main internal tool sleeves are stitched into the case on the back side,
and are open at the bottom. They are also held together in the middle by two
lines of stitching about an inch apart. This creates a small space where you can
put a high quality or expensive instrument of even a large diameter and not have
it banging around against the other contents. It's big enough it easily holds my
PhD .5mm mechanical pencil. I'm sure it would hold a multipoint instrument as
The small perpendicular stitchings on the inside of each side of the case are
indeed small pockets for further organization. Unlike the center organizers
these are closed at the bottom. The small round pocket at the bottom is
interesting; right now can't see myself using for an eraser because I prefer the
mechanical pencil/pen style erasers which I carry along with my other
instruments in the main pocket. I will probably end up using it for spare leads
or perhaps a small pad of post-its but haven't put anything into it yet.
I'm a university lecturer and have to share an office, so I don't have the
luxury of being able to just keep a stock of instruments and supplies on my
desk; my stuff begins to disappear when I do that... I bought this case to
supplement the Nomadic PE-07 I bought from JetPens back at the beginning of Fall
semester, which I have now outgrown. The PD-03 now holds all my writing
instruments while the PE-07 holds a selection of other office supplies such as
post-its, paper clips, a mini stapler, a small roll of tape, etc.
In sum, this is an excellent case. It is well made and well designed. the fact I
can sit it up on my desk and use it as a pencil cup is just icing on the cake.
If you're looking for a solid, no nonsense pencil/pen case, look no further. If
you want something you can carry a small stash of other stationary supplies in,
as well as instruments, look at one of the rectangular cases. A great case, you
shouldn't be disappointed.
