This laying down case is suitable for all your favourite pens and pencils. How many you can fit inside depends very much on how big your pens and pencils are, but a random selection here became a bit of a tight squeeze at eight. With wooden pencils, you'd probably get a few more in, and chunkier pens would fill it sooner. The case is made from silicone, making it pleasantly tactile and flexible, while still having a bit of protective rigidity. The zipper has a pull, so it can be opened easily and the zip pull has a nice chunky plastic pull.
