I have already reviewed a number of pen cases, but never really looked into pen rolls that much. Now pen cases are good, but mostly when one wants (or needs) to carry two or three fountain pens only. As a daily writing setup, however, this does not suffice for me.
I do also need and frequently use a couple of other things such as highlighters, pencils, fineliners, and so on. While I could certainly carry all those things separate, I recently started thinking that I would like to have a solution that I can just ‘grab and go’. I.e. something, where I would not have to worry “Did I pack in my fountain pens? Did I also take the pouch with my other pens”?
In order to have all those things neatly packed up and ready to grab anytime off to a meeting, the library, traveling, or whatever, pen rolls were the natural option to look into. And since I already have reviewed a Paper Republic travellers notebook that I was – and to date am – highly satisfied with, I thought why not giving their pen roll a shot. What I think of the pen roll? Check it out in the video review below!
The video review is, as always, preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
