Where to buy: Nock Co.
Except it's gone now, but you can get other things.
Nock Co. DotDash Pocket notebooks perfectly). It's cute and simple and I love the color scheme - that's pretty much what made me buy it.
I'm a sucker for colors. I also love their cute little Nock Co. tag.
The way I have it set up, my Hightower holds three to four pens, a flexible ruler, a Nock Co. DotDash pocket notebook, and a Field Notes pocket notebook. Sometimes I carry fountain pens; sometimes gel pens or ballpoints, or a mix. The slots are wide enough to accommodate most of my pens (ignoring the truly oversized ones). They clip on or remain in place when the flip is down. I like the slotted side a lot. On the other side, my Field Notes sits behind the Dot Dash notebook. The Dot Dash sits out, except for the back cover in the pocket. I like this set up a lot.
When full with all my junk, it's not even overstuffed. It can still close - the material stretches and moves with all the stuff inside it. I really like that. It's not stiff.
I like how I can be rough with this case. So far, after weeks of use, it still looks brand new. The black exterior holds up really well. In my bag, it really takes a beating and I use all sorts of weird pens, and if they leave marks on the material, I can't see them (on the black). The pink shows more dirt, but so far, nothing has stained. Check this post by Nock Co. on how to clean your case! The nylon is tough stuff, and the threading is well done - there areno bits that or loose or broken, and I appreciate the double-stitched pieces.
- Great colors available.
- The Small Batches are so fun. I have a thing for limited edition things.
- Holds quite a few items!
- Well-made - even, clean, stitching and ends.
- Easy to clean.
- Things can slide out of the pocket side
- Cannot be closed completely so I try to keep it upright in my bag.
I really like this case, along with the Sassafras and Lookout cases, which I also own! This one is designed and set up well as an EDC case. I would enjoy a button snapper to close the case for those times I stuff a bunch of extra things into the pocket and don't want them to fall out. Or I wouldn't mind a zipper closure. That would be cool. For $20, I'm pretty happy with this case, especially because of the colors.
