Comments about Blick Brush and Storage Tube:
Great for travel storage of pens and pencils. The tubes hold 24 round Derwent pencils with a bit of room for sorting. I cut my tubes to length using a box cutter, to save space when traveling. On my desks, I cut the tube into two pieces using one cap on the bottom of each tube for standing open top storage.I think the bristles of brushes need more protection than these tubes provide.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Way to Protect Brushes when Painting Plein Air
By Nan the artist
from Columbus, OH
I really like these brush tubes. I paint outside all summer long and this is the perfect way to carry my good brushes into the field. I recently ordered several to use as raffle gifts for a plein air painting retreat I organize.I've looked all over for this style brush protector, and Blicks has the best style and price!
Good for transporting brushes.
These hard plastic tubes for carrying brushes seem to be hard to find these days, so I was glad to come across these. Wish they didn't have bright orange tops but otherwise they are great!

I discovered the brush tube when I joined a painters' group recently. Great idea--I can safely carry my brushes back home for a careful cleaning and be assured that my acrylic paints won't dry on them!

My brushes thank me
As an art student going into the scary world of caring after expensive brushes, I'm really glad I have a space-saving and durable way to transport my brushes and store them off-semester. I've also used these to carry small tubes of paints for when backpack space becomes tight and have used the caps to hold water for some quick projects. The cap is a little hard to take off, but with the three I've bought I've found the caps are a lot easier to work with if you take them on and off a few times after buying them. Taking them off in a slight twist motion helps too.
Love this product
from San Pedro
I use these tubes to transport brushes when going to classes. The tubes are soft but ridgid so the tips of brushes don't bet bent or crushed. The lids are hard to get off at first, but just put a little hole in the top and bottom lids ( large needle works well) they come off easily. I have been using these for about 5 years now and they are in great shape. So many of my friends now want these after seeing mine. I need more of these to store some of my unused brushes.

Not quite as advertised
I wanted to use these for plein air painting, but they are too difficult to open. The tops fit very snugly without threads and must be pried off with a tool - which eventually will damage the tube. Also, unlike the photos on the webpage, the tops are bright neon orange, not black. When will art supply manufacturers realize that artists are sensitized to color, and eye-popping colors are very distracting?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I found these very hard to open and while I intended to use them for brushes and pencils I won't be doing that. I'm not organized enough to always be sure the tube isn't upside down and you can't really see through them. Also, for plastic tubes I think they are a bit over priced. I marked them average because you do get what is advertised and the plastic itself is a good quality....I just found it frustrating to have to pry the tops off.
This is a WONDErFUL product, and a must-have for any painter that will be traveling. It stores the most amount of brushes in the least amount of space!
