Guest Review: Nomadic Virgo-Attrezzo Pen Case

The reason I have chosen to review the Nomadic Virgo-Attrezzo standing pen case is because I won it right here a few months ago! A great giveaway. Sorry if the pictures are a little blurry I am still deciding on a new camera and had to make do with my BlackBerry.

Starting off, this is what the pen case looks like empty:

Picture 1

It is around 20cm high at the very back, 5.5cm wide and its length is around 6.5cm. The material feels as though it could stand wear and tear pretty well.

Now, on to how many pens it can fit. The picture directly below is showing some the case with some pens. There are 26 in there along with a couple of refills although it could probably take 2 or 3 more before zipping it shut would not be as easy. To stand the pencil case up you can fold down the top part, but I don't tend to do that and the case still stands fine. As you can see in the second picture down, there are 2 pouches, one on each side (of equal size). Now, these are large enough to fit spare pencil leads or a box of paper clips etc but I use them to clip on pens that I need to find easily - although I could still use the pouch itself if I wanted to.

At the middle in the back, the same height as the pouches is an oversized loop. The small tag that came with the case showed how a ruler can be placed here which is what I use it for, but it can also keep refills snug or if you carry fountain pens with you they could be clipped on to this - although I have never done this as I am worried I would end up taking the pen cap off trying to remove it!

Picture 4

Towards the front of the case there is a small pouch which can be used to fit an eraser and sharpener and other small things such as page markers.

This is a great case especially for students as it can fit lots of pens and other things you need.
