Great stuff!

This is a conversation piece. It is sturdy and looks great. I know it takes a lot of work to do it by hand, but just wish that it would be cheaper if you bought more than one at a time. Just saying.


Love em

Absolutely love my holster w/handle. I purchased for my husband and they have become our favorite coffee/ hot coco mugs.


it works!

How ingenious! The Holdster fits quite snugly on the mason jar, so no worries it will fall out. Hot liquids cool rather too quickly, but it will be perfect for warmer weather and while working in the garden. Perhaps an insert similar to the BNTO mason jar idea, but one that goes all the way to the bottom of a 16 or 24oz mason jar w/ an airspace between jar and insert might keep hot liquids hot longer? I also purchased the Cuppow lid, which is brilliant, and the BNTO insert for optimal versatility in mason jar-ness. I am in awe of you guys for coming up with all of these clever things!


great idea!

Love the idea and my husband used it right away. The only drawback it that the handle is pretty small.
It looks like it would be larger because of the bicycle handlebar in the photo, but it is definitely too small for a large handed person!
I bought 2 to see if we liked them, and we like them well enough to keep them, but not to buy more.


Fun cup!

I really like the Holdster and it comes with a jar. Well made, as I expected.
Now I need the cuppow to go with it.


Great Gift

I bought this for my boyfriend as a birthday gift, and he loves it. He had actually seen the product on Kickstarter and almost purchased it then, so he was glad to see it available through your website. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the fit on wide-mouth mason jars is perfect. The only reason I don't give 5 starts is because I wish there were some kind of packaging - something like a reusable canvas bag with a logo would be nice and help to emphasize that it's a new item. I think this is a great idea for a group gift, too, like an alternative to a flask for wedding parties or a favor for special occasions. We hope to see some of the other designs available soon!

This will be given as a gift so I have not tried it yet. It is very stylish looking, but also having bought the one with stitching, I personally preferred the looks on that one. Great concept for use with mason jars.


Not worth the money

Not as big as I expected and not worth the money.

The handle on mine is so small that it is hard to get one finger in it. There is no way to wash without getting the leather wet. I like the feel but with the cleaning problems and the handle being small I will not be buying another.

The Holdster USA Story

Holdster USA - Mason Jar Sleeve

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.
