I like the cup very much especially when I realize that it won't leak or spill all over my tote bag on the way to work.

The Holdster is very well made, with the kind of craftsmanship that one would like to see in a fine leather piece. It holds hot or cold beverages in style.More > < Less


Cool holder

8/23/2014 by Marc

This is really well made, I am going to give this to my son in law after we put on new rotors & brakes on my car as a thanks you. So I haven't used it myself, but he likes using Mason jars and I thought this would be a classy gift.
I know in their description they say the jar is indestructible but if you drop it on a hard floor it's going to break.
So I'm figuring all you have to do is slip it over a new one?
Is it glued in or machine pressed?
Well made, comes safely packaged,
Thanks, Marc

Rich Looking Quality

6/16/2014 by Dale

I've seen pictures of other leather holders for Mason jars, and they look cheaply made and flimsy. This holster (holdster) speaks class in a rich looking way. I receive comments whenever people see it. A tad pricy, but definitely a quality product!

I got the one with the cross stitch rather than the one with the copper rivets. There is a copper rivet at the top inside of the handle. I feel the cross stitching shows off the handmade quality of this item better than the riveted model.

About Holdster USA

Saddle Up

Inexpensive, strong, and utilitarian, the classic Mason Jar makes a great drinking mug except for one problem: the glass gets too hot to handle when you’re drinking coffee, tea or other steamy beverages. Crocheted cozies can remedy the heat-transfer problem, but Marsh Gooding had a different aesthetic in mind when he designed the Holdster.

Made from thick, vegetable-tanned leather, the Holdster fits 16-ounce wide-mouth canning jars like a glove. And, just like a vintage baseball glove, the Holdster will soften over time as you break it in and make it your own. Exquisite details, such as cross-stitched seams and copper rivets, highlight the leather, which has a classic, tailored look, smells wonderful, and feels comfortable as it protects your hands from hot contents.

Marsh developed the Holdster in Burlington, Vermont, where the first prototypes were hand-cut and sewn. He teamed with Bobby Paulus, and they moved production from their backyard to a saddle shop in Mount Hope, Ohio.

Marsh, who’s the great-grandson of a Colorado saddlery owner, wanted to create a product that feels like it was made 100 years ago, yet has the longevity to last 100 years from now. Mission accomplished.
