I wanted a bag that I could use as an everyday purse as well as an art bag to
carry supplies and sketchbooks. With all its organized pockets and deep main
compartment, the Nomadic Wise-Walker is perfect for exactly that.
A previous reviewer gave a great description by saying it doesn't feel like
you're carrying the bag-- it feels like you're wearing it. Most other shoulder
bags might be bulky or sway clumsily, but the Nomadic Wise-Walker hugs close to
the body, feeling stable and secure. Unlike most bags or purses, it doesn't feel
awkward to reach down and open a pocket. It feels natural. There's no fumbling
around for what you're looking for. And while other bags will sag or slump over
when set down upright, this bag stands up easily by itself.
I've yet to carry my 15" macbook in it, so I can't comment much about the
padding, or lack thereof, but I already own a separate padded case for added
protection. So while I think the bag could handle carrying a laptop, it would be
wise to pick up a case, to be on the safe side.
Natural. Functional. Wonderful. I'm very impressed with the Nomadic Wise-Walker,
and I'd highly recommend it for artists, writers, students-- anyone who has a
lot of items to carry, and want a highly organized bag that looks great and
I just recieved this pencil and I absolutely love it already. It has a nice feel
when holding it, and it writes/draws so smoothly against the paper. Its light
enough to be easily erased, but as someone mentioned before, the cap on the
eraser is a little annoying to take on and off-- but that's such a minor issue.
If you're looking for a good sketch pencil, I'd highly recommend this, in either
light blue or the red. I plan on trying the other colors, too.
