Pen Case Review: Girologio Denim 10-Pen Case

I was so happy to be introduced to the new Girologio Denim line of pen cases. I am always excited to see materials, other than leather, used for pen cases. Leather is a great option for a lot of people but having a non-leather option available is also great.

The denim 12-pen case ($52.60) is a dark indigo, soft fabric (that picks up cat hair like crazy so I apologize in advance for the hair in the photos. I tried to get it off but its a futile effort here at Cat Cottage) and features a stitched brown leatherette patch logo on the back like on the pocket of a pair of jeans. Cute!

The first thing I noticed after I loaded the case is that the fabric case, filled with pens, is a lot lighter than a leather case is once filled. I know that’s probably a big “duh!” for a lot of people but I forgot how much weight is added to a pen case, just in the materials that are used.

I tested a variety of pen sizes from long, chunky pens like Lamy Safaris and Opus 88 Koloros as well as some of my smaller, more slender pens like my YStudio Resin Fountain Pen to make sure the smaller pens don’t fall out. Getting the bulkier pens into the case the first time might require tugging a little bit on the elastic to loosen up the elastic to make it easier to slide them in or out.

With the more slender pens, the zipper lip keeps the smaller pens from falling out but some pens are slender enough that caution may need to be taken to make sure they don’t fall out.

There are a variety of other case options available from Girologio in the denim line from 1- and 2-pen sleeves to a 96-pen briefcase! There’s a size for everyone.

Overall, I am really happy with this case. An adjustable elastic would make this case almost perfect — if I could just figure out a way to charm the fabric not to attract cat hair!

    1. You might be able to find a local to you pen shop that might offer it. Or check through some of the larger US retailers and see if they ship to Australia like Vanness or Dromgooles. I don’t know if the American online shop for girologio ships to Australia.
