I keep these pens in my messenger bag and use them throughout the day during my daily travels and sometimes at work. Although they are all low cost pens they perform well, feel ok in my hand and if I loose one, well....I got more. For the kind of writing I'm doing in my Midori Travelers notebook, and a few FieldNotes booklets I really don't need high-end pens. On the far left is a fine tip Uniball Vision Needle in black and next to it is a Pentel mechanical pencil. The other six pens are black, red, and blue Pentel and Pilot pens both Fine and medium.
* One Uniball Vision Needle Fine Black Waterproof Fadeproof
* One Pentel 500 0.9mm Mechanical Pencil
*Three Pentel EnerGel Liquid Gell Ink0.7mm Metal Tip Japan pens. (Black, Red, Blue)
* Three Pilot Precise V5 RT Fine pens. (Black, Red, Blue)
