Review by Christine Blount
I love my bag, can fit all the pencils/pens I own in it with room to spare. It has been invaluable going out and about to sketch. That said there are a few minor problems with it. One downside is the inside elastic holder is very close to the ring binder, you can only really fit one thing in there and still be able to move the leaves.The other problem as another reviewer has stated is that the d-rings are quiet fragile plastic. Have only used my bag a few times and one of the rings snapped, it really wasn't overloaded. It had an A5 sketchbook inside and the leaves weren't completely filled. If it can't take the weight of an amount it was designed for so maybe Derwent should look into that.I would heartily recommend this product, just bear in mind that the rings do snap. It is worth the price but maybe carry spares or switch them out for metal ones. (Posted on 20/08/2015)

Bought this very bag several years ago.... whether you are an artist on the go, or just need safe storage at home it is fantastic! I use it to store my watercolour pencils, block pads, and spiral sketch books. there is also ample room for a small drawing board which I carry with me, some masking tape, water colour postcards, and a whole host of other items. As a mainly water-colourist, I have removed one of the leaves as it was not required, and feel it is a lot lighter and more comfortable on days out. The elasticated slots for pencils actually hold two per loop as they are of a generous size, and also allow me to store larger objects, such as a sharpening knife, my water brushes, some tortillons of varying sizes, and also a selection of compact watercolour brushes, graphite solid pencil sticks too.In fact I use it to even carry around a small watercolour palette and paints in case I feel in the mood for straight forward painting.It has a very comfortable carrying handle which fastens together using velcro and is thick enough to allow carrying over long periods without discomfort. I must say a previous owner has stated that the supplied shoulder sling is of lightweight quality, it is in fact made of plastic, but I have had no problems using it thus far ( 2 years on ) so long as you remember not to overload the bag, if using all of the supplied "" leaves "" and the bag is also used to carry heavier blocks of paper etc, I imagine that this could lead to breakage. Otherwise I must give this item 10/10 for ingenuity and use-ability! (Posted on 20/08/2015)

I bought this item about a week ago and it arrived yesterday. For this price I think it's very good, I really like how it's built and you can also remove some of the pencil slots or add, just as you need. The material the bag is made from is quite good too, I like the natural feel of the bag. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
