These appear to essentially be strips of leather with different sized cuts in them, meaning quite a few of my stowed items will have their centers exposed to the world (not ideal for things that I'm buying a case to protect). And that is unfortunate as this case appears to get everything else right.

Woooah, wait is it not long enough to wrap around enought to cover all the pens? If not I'm going to stop my order as I couldn't imagine it being that way as you are correct it wouldn't do anything to protect your pens. andy?

From the image above (and the others I've found on the internet), it appears that at least some of the pens (those farthest from the center) will be exposed. I suppose one could only use the center of the wrap. No idea how many pens this would be able to store with that limitation. It would probably also depend on how tight one made the wrap (with the size of the stored pens/pencils affecting that).

Hmmm. I figured it just wasn't wrapped very tightly as to show off how it worked. If not it seems really strange/cheap as it would only add a few inches to cover it all. Andy can you confirm?

Not entirely sure if I understand your concern, but from what I gather, you are concerned that the middle part of your pen bodies will be exposed?
Usually, the most sensitive parts of your writing utensils are the tips, unless you travel with other sharp objects in your bag, the leather is also pretty thick, so even if something hits the case, it will act as a bumper around the "exposed" areas.

Yes that is my concern. Just to confirm you are saying that when fully wrapped tightly the leather does not fully cover your pens? I have lots of pens with soft "squishy" areas that would be exposed. If it is it that way it seems silly not to just add a couple more inches so that it wraps around.
