Well made and sturdy

2/23/2014 by Susan

I bought two, one as a gift and one for myself, and am very pleased with the thickness of the leather, the craftsmanship of the stitching, and how well it works. I did not expect it to come on a mason jar, so I don't know how easy it will be to slip it on another jar - if by chance I break the current one. The Holdster not only gives a handle to hold the jar but the sleeves keeps one from burning fingers on the hot beverage. This product demonstrates great American Craftsmanship.More > < Less

It's for my son-in-law and I know he'll love it.


Super Duper Cool

1/11/2014 by Marty

My son has been drinking from Mason jars for years. I gave this to him as a Christmas gift. He loves it and uses it every day (he's very cool - I'm not... but I think that makes this very cool). He tells me that it's tough to hold a jar of hot coffee without some sort of wrapping. I knit him some cozies once but I don't think they were high on the "cool' factor (for a guy, anyway). These are made from very high quality leather with rugged stitching. The handle makes it easy for him to attach to his backpack and use while he's out and about. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. By the way, earlier I had bought him some Cuppow jar lids (also sold here on The Grommet). They work beautifully, too.More > < Less

I gave this to my husband with a set of Cuppows. As a confirmed Cosmic Possum, he loves it!!! He always carries a mason jar anyway but now it has a lid (so it doesn't spill) and he has a handle!! The perfect gift for Mason jar drinkers everywhere!!More > < Less

Holdster USA - Mason Jar Sleeve

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.
