Awhile ago, I noticed some of my fountain pens had micro scratches on their bodies and I realized it was because many of them were in an open pocket pencil case and they were hitting each other! An atrocity. Obviously I had to remedy this situation immediately.
Naturally, I went to browse JetPens because they have an awesome selection of pencil cases. I was looking for a pencil case that would hold all my fountain pens (or some of them anyway) in such a way that they would not bounce around against each other - so they would have to be "restrained" in some way. I also wanted a decent capacity. Finally, I came to the (at the time new) Lihit Lab Teffa Pen Case - Book Style - in yellow green. It is also available in black, brown, and orange.
Pilot Plumix in this section and it's never fallen out.
The other side has 3 mesh pockets. The attached tag to the pencil case suggests you can put a USB drive, or pencil lead or an eraser in here. I usually keep ink cartridges in here (for emergency ink situations), and very small correction tapes. And sometimes stickers.
The back pocket is a mesh pocket that covers half the space. I also stick fountain pens here. This case is all about my fountain pens! The mesh pockets on both these pages are slightly stretchy so I don't put the the metal fountain pens back here. This space is reserved for plastic/rubber bodies. Sometimes I even keep a ballpoint in here, just in case! I know, the insanity! (What I'd really like to add to this space is this). The back pocket can also hold small notepads and/or scissors, along with other similar-sized items.
|Back flap: 10 pens, a correction tape, and a ruler in the back. I left the mesh pockets empty for obvious reasons!|
If I could change anything, I would have preferred the flap didn't have three mini mesh pockets - perhaps one or two instead. I'd prefer if they were more stretchy like the big one! Or, just two strips like the front half to tuck pens into, as that was my primary purpose for getting this pen case.
Another Great Review!

JetPens - $14.00
This is without a doubt one of my favorite pencil cases ever. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a protective case for their fountain pens (and can't afford one of those really awesome kinds) or for any other pens/pencils. This pencil case is tasteful, well designed, easy to clean, and very functional. If you're scoffing at the $14.00... shush. It's well worth it! I even went back and bought a second. Because, sadly, I have that many fountain pens.
