Review: Nomadic Upright Pencil Case

Nomadic Upright Pencil Case

I only have two of them so far, but Nomadic has quickly become my favorite pencil case maker.  I reviewed the Nomadic Roller a month ago, and this time around it is the Nomadic Upright's turn.

The biggest selling point about the Nomadic brand that I can see so far is the quality of the construction.  The nylon material used is heavy in weight, the stiching is tight, and the zipper works with ease.  Did I mention that this fire engine red is just downright sexy?  That's right.  All the ladies at the Barnes and Noble Cafe swoon when they see me break out this bad boy.  I'm a regular Ajay Bhatt.

Despite using this case for a couple of months now, I can't say that I have it all figured out.  My main difficulty lies with how I want to sort my pens within the various dividers on the inside.  Should they all go in the center two sections, outside of those sections, or clipped onto the middle?  I've gone with all of the above.  The dividers in the middle are nice, but they do get in the way a bit.  But they are there for a reason, and that reason is that this is an upright pen case.  The pens go in the pockets so that when you unzip it and stand it up, they are easily accessible, and pens don't go flying everywhere.  It is very well balanced when opened because of this.

It looks like I have 18 pens packed in the case in the photo above.  That is about the max you can fit in there.  There are a couple of side pouches on the inside, plus a small zippered compartment on the bottom that is a good home for a flat eraser or pencil leads.  Overall, this is another excellent case from Nomadic, and I look forward to trying out more of their products.
