The Chimneytop is a simple zippered pouch for pens and accessories.  They are sold as a set of two, you get one small size and one medium size.  They are made out of a 1000D textured nylon that is very much like Cordura.  The small size measures about  7″ long and the medium measures about 7.5″ long.  I found both of them to be a tight squeeze from my freshly sharpened wooden pencils.  This isn’t a big deal as soft cases are not ideal for carrying wooden pencils but I thought it was worth pointing out.

Per the Nock Co. website the small Chimneytop has a capacity of 6 pens and the medium has a 12 pen capacity.  I was able to almost double these figures but obviously the size of the pens you carry is an important factor.

Here is the small mandarin Chimneytop with 11 pens:

I found that I preferred the smaller size.  It’s proportions are a bit more attractive to me and the thick 1000D fabric gives the small Chimneytop more structure than the medium which was more blob like.  The set is sold for $12 and for an American-made product constructed out of hardwearing materials the price is a steal.
