Great idea

I wish it had a little wrap around leather piece for the bottom. That would be for insulation and for putting the hot cup on my lap

Different cool way to carry a drink. Anxious to see what comments I get.


This is a MUST for those on the go!

I am not someone to leave reviews, but I am so happy with the Holdster USA I had to let it be known. I no longer worry about spills on my car ride, bike ride or walks. I drink a lot of tea and this is perfect for me. Works great for coffee too. Ive always used canning jars to take soup to work. No spills and reheating is easy. So taking the jar out of the leather sleeve to heat water in works perfect. I appreciate the craftsmanship of the Holdster. It's very unique. I'm always being asked where I came across this product. I plan to order more for gifts.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.
