The Lihit Lab Hinemo Stand Pen Pouch

Pen cases can be almost as important as the pens and pencils in them (especially for bag people). I’m a bag person and pretty much always have been. Zippered bags, backpacks, pen cases, pen sleeves… I love them all. But some cases work better than others for different people, and this Lihit Lab stand-up pen pouch works well for me.

Hinemo is Lihit Lab’s line of premium pouches made of Japanese canvas from Fuji Kinbai. The canvas and overall construction are high quality and will last a long time. The Stand has a double-sided zipper so that the pouch can stand up on your desk, or a table, with the pockets facing out.

This case has a tall canvas pocket and a short mesh pocker on either side, and a stiff panel in the middle to help it stand up. The zipper is metal and works smoothly. Despite the slim nature of this pouch, it can hold a lot of shit. Right now in mine I have 11 pens, 1 mechanical pencil, 1 Kaweco Sketch-Up, earbuds, a USB-C adapter for the earbuds, a small stack of 7 Nock Co petite note cards, and post-its. This case is tall enough to hold an apple pencil, most regular pencils, but no Blackwings unless they’re sharpened down quite a bit.

I purchased my pouch from St Louis Art Supply last year in yellow. It also comes in black, navy, and red/orange. While STL Art Supply no longer has this pouch in stock, it can be found on Amazon. This pouch is a good desk companion whether you work in an office or at home. During my brief office job last year I didn’t want to leave any pens that I cared about at my desk, so I would bring this pouch. Sometimes I would zip it and stand it, but usually I just left it open stood up. Leaving the pouch open is just as stable as zipping it, and depending on what you have in your pouch it can even be more stable.
