The pen sleeve is made of soft leather and has a little bit of texture to it; it's quite nice to hold and feel. Even though it is soft and floppy when empty, it is easy to slip a pen into the pen sleeve and once the pen is in it, it holds its form nicely. The soft unfinished leather inside won't scratch pen surfaces.
A "normal" sized pen stays in the sleeve quite snugly and does not fall or slip out. A short pen like a Kaweco ICE Sport is a pain to get into this because it's short and to get it out, I have to push it out like squeezing toothpaste out of a tube. It works but it's not very efficient. Therefore, a full-sized pen is better.
Lamy Safari-sized pen fits snugly though, and does not slide. If you're worried about whether your pen will fit, you don't have enough pens. If you acquire a pen sleeve and your pen does not fit, either get a pen that fits or send your pen sleeve to me. Easy peasy.
I now keep this pen sleeve in my purse - it's low profile and is not bulky at all. It does a great job of protecting my pen of carrying choice (which varies) from scratches, scuffs, and bumps.
- Hand-cut, drawn, and sewn
- Made in the USA.
- Easy to clean with mild soap and water.
- Many colors to choose from!
- Too big for short or very thin pens. Get a shorty pen sleeve for that.
- An option for a fold over top or button top would be convenient (but perhaps not feasible).
If you can actually pick just one pen to keep with you, then you should certainly pick up a Sula Jane and Earl single pen sleeve! If you can't pick a color, well, then you should get several because there are just so many gorgeous colors to choose from! Great quality, functional and practical, and super cute. How could I not recommend these??
