For years, one of my passions has been drawing.
Whenever I travel I usually take a bunch of pencils and art supplies with me, specially when I go fishing or hunting.
Pictured here is the Derwent pencil wrap I usually take with me.
It suddenly dawned on me that it would be perfect as a pipe travel kit, and I had a spare one.
It will hold four medium sized pipes, tamper, lighter and unlimited pipe cleaners. Or three large pipes Or, packed tightly, 5 medium sized pipes.
I think it even looks classy, and they can be found on ebay for under $9 plus shipping.

I believe it a very tough to beat deal!
Just add your favorite tobacco pouch or a couple of tins and you are all set.

I wish I had realized about this use for my pencil wrap before getting my very serviceable, yet ugly, Big Ben man purse...
Cheers,
J

Nice compact little bundle for taking along the pipes. Sometimes improvisation is the way to go.

I have seen these online and thought it might work, but afraid to pull the trigger and wind up with something useless. Might be worth another look.

@bungee, a great improvisation. I'm sure it works well and seems very practical:) Like Thomas Edison said, "Necessity is the mother of invention". God bless necessity;)

Great Idea, Bungee. I have a brush carrier that might work, I'll take a look at it. Thanks :D

Wow, that's amazing. Just used some Amazon rewards and picked one up for a total of like $7 USD. Thanks for the idea. I might be using this more than my zip up case.

I'm glad you like the idea guys.
And I like its looks very much too. It has that rugged look that we outdoors-men favor.
It looks way cooler than my Big Ben man purse.
Cheers,
J

Awesome idea. I'm not terribly fond of most of the travel pipe cases I see. They dont look very good, or they're too small, etc etc. That looks great, and it holds enough pipes & stuff to keep you well supplied.

Bung got one, will be traveling soon to see Sons new home in Texas and that will do just fine along with the other little bag I have. Thanks :clap:

Thanks for the heads up, Bungee. When I went to the two main art supply dealers I generally use for supplies, surprise.... they were out or not available. Picked one up off your e-bay post.
Brush carrier was just too long.

Post your experiences with these pencil wraps. Would like to know if you found them as useful as I did.
