I have been in search...

I have been in search for the perfect pencil case for my daughter who attends a
trilingual immersion school. Due to her need to write her assignments in
multiple colors based on the language subject matter, she needs a pencil case
that will hold a 6-in ruler, a small protractor, a small square, a bottle of
white out, a large eraser, a small eraser, red/green/black/blue/purple pens, a
highlighter, two mechanical pencils, and a box of 0.7 mm lead. The case needs
to be able to sit open on her desk with easy access to all her supplies. I
bought this case because the dimensions were good, long enough and wide enough.
I liked the outside compartment and she loves lime green. When I received the
case, I really loved the way it looked and felt. The zipper worked very well
and all the other details pictured on the website were exactly as noted.
However, I discovered to my dismay a design flaw. When I put 2 pens and some of
the new Tombow erasers I had just purchased, one of the pens slid out from the
top of the case with the zipper closed. Upon closer inspection, I saw that with
the zipper closed and snapped down, there is a large enough gap at the opposite
end of the zipper that if the case is tilted vertically, most pens but the
fattest ones, like a highlighter, could potentially fall out. That is an
unacceptable flaw. I buy her expensive pens and pencils and I would hate for
her to lose them in this fashion.
