Fit my brush securely & protected it during travel
I honestly wasn't sure if I would really need this, but I ended up living out of a duffel for a while and this was invaluable for keeping my brush unsquished. Before, I had a little contraption fashioned out of a paper towel roll, but it crumpled too easily and $7.00 was worth a nicer functioning and nicer looking solution.
If I am going to be traveling, I am not going to let my brush roll around unprotected in my kit. I picked this up to make sure that it has a barrier to ensure a longer lifespan and it does exactly what a travel case is meant to do. While I wouldn't throw the case around (who would do something like that anyway?) I have no fear of my brush getting damaged in transit with this case. A small hole at the top keeps the inside vented and overall I would recommend this product to others.
This is a little bit larger than I expected it to be, but not large enough that it is difficult to pack. This tube offers a lot of protection for a medium to large sized brush. The plastic seems a little thin, but since the "cap" is basically the full height of the tube the double walled construction proved to be very sturdy. I used it with an Omega S10065 and the width was just about perfect with about an extra half-inch of height when the tube is fully closed. It is worth noting that this tube could hold a taller brush if you just don't screw it down all the way, there is enough friction to keep the cap from accidentally slipping down if packed in a crowded bag. Overall if you have a brush you care about protecting while you travel you could do a lot worse than getting one of these tubes, they aren't expensive and will protect your brush very well.
I am very pleased with this brush case. I feel that it will be very protective of my brush. (short of driving over it, I don't think you will crush it) I think I am going to put some extra holes into it.
