It was a gift for my daughter. She likes drinking her coffee from a mason jar. She really loves this and uses it every day.

We have always loved drinking cold drinks out of Mason jars, now we can drink our hot beverages with this holder - we bought 2, probably will buy 2 more. We love it!More > < Less


Very nice quality gift

The quality and workmanship on this is very impressive. I went to a craft fair this weekend where there were several styles of these available for less money, but they didn't look NEARLY as nice. Even tho I want another one, I decided to purchase it here rather than settle for the poorer quality available locally. VERY nice gift. (I'd love to see it paired with the cuppow cover!)More > < Less

Great Product

This has become my favorite drinking glass. The leather is very thick and looks to be of high quality. I thought the handle was too small at first but I discovered that you wrap your hand around the holder and slide 2 fingers into the handle loop and it's a very secure hold. The Moscow Mule is perfect for this who needs the copper mug when you got the Holdster.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.
