My husband is a "geek" and I purchased this for him Christmas and he loved the concept. The problem is 1. the DRY erase marker waser was dead, I'm talking so dead and dry CPR couldn't bring it back to life.
2. When you pull out the whiteboard it has a hard time clicking into open.

Gotta say, a Little Disappointed

Zipboard is a clever idea. Works as advertised. BUT it is not as sturdy a surface to write on as I anticipated.


We lied te board but needed extra dry erase markers

I ordered it for my Coaching Husband. He loves it. The only issue was the dry erase marker that is attached to the the zipboard. It came dryed out. We didn't know if we could add any brand since the cap is inside the board. I feel a back up pen or list of brands that could work as replacements should be added. I contacted The Grommet and they were very helpful and accommodating.More > < Less


Pretty nice

The device is nice although the retractable pen comes out far too often-the design on the marker port is bad.


Great idea but was disappointed

Arrived with the pen cap off, hence not working so had to buy my own. I use the blank one when sketching interior design ideas on site.

About Zipboard

Whiteboard To Go

Rob Budryk had his aha moment watching New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick carry a whiteboard for diagramming plays on the sidelines. Too bad it wasn’t more portable, thought Rob, who’s a coach and retired police officer. And with that thought, Rob started devising plans for a retractable whiteboard that would be rigid for writing and roll up tight for easy carrying.

The Zipboard has a sturdy, erasable writing surface when it’s extended. With the push of a button it retracts into a slim tube that you can clip on your belt, stow in a pocket, or toss in a briefcase or equipment bag. It also includes a spot for storing the black marker with an eraser.

We heard about the Zipboard from Liz Meagher, a diehard sports fan with a knack for spotting unique products. The plain white version is ideal for teachers, builders, and anyone who thinks on their feet. Rob also offers Zipboards for specific sports, including basketball, hockey, soccer, lacrosse and volleyball. Field boundaries and court lines are already drawn on the surface to make it easy for coaches to diagram plays.

Teaching, sketching, planning, collaborating—on-the-go brainstorming just got a whole lot easier.
