I bought this because I wanted a simple case for my iPad Air that had pockets
for other things like my phone and credit cards. This is PERFECT. It fits an
iPad Air exactly, with a little room for a small notepad. My iphone fits in the
smaller velcro pocket perfectly, too. The only thing that would have made this
product better would be to have more colors to choose from because I would have
gotten several to match my mood!
I was skeptical of how well this pencil would work, but mine arrived yesterday
and I LOVE IT. Before I even wrote anything, I found that I really like the
grip. I hold my pencils pretty close to the point, so most pencils' rubber
grips are way too far from the tip and too fat to write comfortably. This
pencil's barrel is a good diameter, and it's grooved but smooth. The orange
ring near the point is soft rubber so your fingers don't slide off. This design
is perfect for me.
The rotating lead thing is really nice. My line stays a consistent thickness,
which isn't really an issue for me to begin with, but I like that every time I
touch the pencil to paper, it *feels* the same. With other pencils, depending
on whether you start writing on the "flat" part of your lead or the "sharp" part
of your lead, it feels different. But this pencil feels the same every time.
Also, the design is really attractive. Even though the body is plastic, it
looks expensive. The pencil feels really sturdy, and doesn't rattle or flex the
way some cheap pencils do.
This is by far my favorite pencil (I think I have over a dozen now from
I really love these pencils, ever since I used one in drafting class in
highschool. They are very sturdy, easy to disassemble, and the long tip makes
the pencil very easy to control. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is
because it looks a little homely.
It's not the most stylish pencil, but it'll get the job done.
p.s. These pencils are terrible for colored leads. When I try to use colored
leads in these, the lead ALWAYS breaks.
This pen writes fine, and the wooden barrel is unique, but like other reviewers
have said, the clicker mechanism is loose. Also, the clip isn't secure, so it
slides right off the pen. I just got mine and the clip has fallen off twice.
