I'll keep this short: everyone else's review completely captures what a lifesaver this little pen case is.

Buy this bag!

No seriously. If you've got multiple notebooks and a bunch of other miscellaneous stuff, this bag is your answer. I won't make this review long-winded because all the other reviews are spot on.

In the meantime, I will say this: in the main compartment I am able to vertically store two Mnemosyne Inspiration (A5) notebooks and one iPad Mini (with case). The zipper is barely even stressed!

Again, you need this bag to help you make sense of things. You'll be completely enamored, just like me!

Lefties, rejoice!!

I'll open by saying I should've started using these notebooks a long time ago. The main reason is I don't have to do any sort of contortions to get a comfortable writing positions with these notebooks on account of being wire bound. There's no having to prop up either my elbow or the book itself. (Look, I know this isn't anything new, but I still love these little notebooks) The paper writes great with my Lamy Studio Palladium/Diamine Blue-Black and with pencils as well. The three pack is also a pretty decent value too.

My only complaint ("feedback" rather) is I'd like to see these in a cloth bound set up. Along the lines of a webbie.

Again, you'll love these little notebooks.

This pen writes great and I love the grooves on the handle that guide your fingers into the right spot.....(that's what she said?)....But honestly, it's a neat feature!

What surprised me the most is how big the pen actually is. I'm used to a Pilot Prera and the Al-Star feels like a pool cue sometimes. But the pen starts right up after being left open for a bit. (hence 4 stars vs. 5 stars)

The purple is a great color and I'll be drooling over some other colors.

Great pen!

This notebook is fantastic! ...

This notebook is fantastic!

- the paper writes like a dream with my Al-Star
- there's little (if any) bleed through
- the paper writes like a dream with my Tombow Zoom 505sh (mechanical pencil)
- the dots are non-obtrusive
- the cover is soft
- the paper lays flat when the book is flat

Next time I'm going to order the black cover though, but that's a personal preference rather than a performance issue.

I would definitely recommend for FP users (or anyone else)......

I honestly wanted to love this pen. But I had a strange feeling about it when I got it because I know that fountain pens can get a little fussy sometimes.

And it turns out that's the case with this one. The pen itself is great, but I have no clue as to what is going wrong because I am geting terribly inconsistent inkflow out of it. I even made sure to read up and follow the directions posted on how to install the ink cartridge properly (I know it's not rocket science, but I still wanted to make sure I was doing it right). After letting the pen sit for awhile to let the ink seep in, I got to writing and immediately I noticed that the ink flow was terribly inconsistent and that's even when I flexed the nib.

I then reached out to jetpens for some advice and they said that sometimes there can be residue left from the manufacturing process (which is a valid point) and they pointed me to the tutorial in how to clean a fountain pen. After following the directions to a "T", I'm still getting the same results.....inconsistent ink-flow.

At the end of the day, I have to think I just got a bad pen and I look at it as an isolated incident. So I'm sending this back and getting a finer nib. It's just such a hassle to find out this way

I absolutely LOVE everything...

I absolutely LOVE everything about these pencils (and) pens. The weight, the grip, the style... Top class.

When I as a TA back in college (Ohio State), I had to draw an example for one of my Japanese exchange students and I didn't have a pen/pencil handy. So I asked if I could use his for a moment while we work through a problem and little did I know, he handed me a Tombow 505. I really didn't think anything of it at first, but after working with him for awhile, I noticed "wow, I really like how this pencil feels".... he turns to me and says "you keep, you keep!".... I didn't know what to say, so I politely said "hey, thanks man!!".

Where I'm going with this is that 505 literally became an extension of my hand throughout my jr and senior years. Until I lost it while moving out!! After lots of empty searching, I found that JetPens not only had the black one, but they had other colors too! And now I've become addicted to writing and honing my penmanship with these.

Yes they are a bit pricey, but I look at it as a "give/take" scenario. Sure there's a trade off (high price), but I PROMISE you I won't be losing my beloved 505's!!! Get one today, you won't be disappointed.

and if you are........well....cust service can help you much better than I could :0)
