I love my new holdster- the leather is beautiful and keeps my drinks hot or cold much longer than I expected. Super product, thanks!!

Thick leather. Well crafted. Looks great with my pour-over coffee system. Unless the leather sleeve loosens up over time, I just don't see howee
how I will ever separate the leather from the glass for cleaning. Mine is REALLY TIGHT fitting. I guess I don't mind too much.
I'll just hand wash it. I'm enjoying drinking from it.

I saw these on line and couldn't wait to order. I ordered the stitch and the rivet holdster. I love both! The only con is I wish the handle was a bit larger for the man hand that keeps taking one with him. And trying to keep others from taking mine is always a challenge.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.
