This case is ideal for securing delicate items in a bag with the added benefit of waterproofing electronics or papers. It is large enough to fit a small book, phone, wallet, etc. I smoke a hand made pipe. It's pretty long, and unfortunately the stem cracked despite my best efforts to preserve it. I got it repaired and bought this to primarily serve as my smoking kit. It fits the pipe, disassembled, a 6 oz jar (barely), lighters, matches, pipe cleaning tools, with room to spare for a phone/ipod or other dedicates for when I am crossing water cross country or on a boat. It makes me feel WAY more comfortable toting little delicate things like those around. It is VERY solid feeling and I haven't had it leak yet.
