Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, portable, and did I mention small I wanted a tiny pen, and this is a tiny pen. I carried one in my Leatherman Wave case (the elastic sides of the nylon case act as a perfect sheath for the pen), and was never for want of a writing utensil. The instances it came in handy are innumerable -- especially with a Moleskine in the back pocket. The big sell is that it is still a Fisher space pen. The ink is perhaps not the smoothest, but it always flows so the pen is always reliable. Unlike regular ballpoints, it is guaranteed to work on, say, the back of your hand, or any other surface you may need to jot a note on. This is not a desk pen, however. Not that any of you were under that impression.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful little stowaway! This is a wonderful little pen, with emphasis on little. I wouldn't want to write a novel with it, as it it quite thin and thus not the most comfortable pen to write with. I've found that it's more comfortable once you realize that you don't have to bear down at all to get the ink to flow, so you don't have to grip it tightly. It works as advertised, especially with a Rite in the Rain notepad. I didn't try writing through grease, but it can certainly write through water and at any angle. It slips nicely in the spiral binding of the small journal pad and stays put--which is good, because it's so small, it's easy to lose. Don't buy a black one unless you like playing hide-and-seek with yourself; I got a red one and am glad I did. I have not had the issues with ink globs that others have reported. Mine delivers ink consistently and uniformly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from most reliable small pen At less than 4 inches long and a quarter inch in diameter, these Stowaway space pens are easy to carry round. When you open it up, it is 5 inches long and easy enough to write with. Unlike most other pens, the ink lasts for years without drying up or leaking and always writes smoothly. Drop one in your backpack and you can count on it still working a year from now, as long as you don't lose it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a pen- on steroids It's a great pen. If I could have, I would have given it 4.5 stars, because my only complaint was that it was a little skinny for me (I have big hands). Other than that, it was great! I highly recommend it. Oh, and right when I got it, I did a test. I took some Rite in the Rain waterproof paper, and was able to write underwater and upside down, but sadly I couldn't test it in space :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for ultralight backpacking journal writing This ultralightweight pen slips easily through the wire binding of "write in the rain" journals I use for my backpacking trip log. Unfortunately, the cap also easily slips off the pen base and out of the wires. I nearly lost the cap several times. That said, after using multiple journals I still have my original red pen from about 2009 - probably because I bought it in red! Although Fisher has another pen with a tethered cap, it does not store in the binding. As others have noted it is not something to write more than brief notes, especially in wind and/or with cold fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Write Ultralight Very light weight, a little uncomfortable to hold, I wouldn't want to write a novel or even a short story with it. Essentially a refill with an aluminum shell around it. Wish shell came in red if you drop it in the field, could be hard to find

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pen! I use this pen for taking notes out on the trail and I love it. I also keep one in my wallet since it is so small. I just wish I could find it more places.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little pen! This pen is not much more than an ink cartridge in a case. The cap extends the body to a useable length. I got it to drop into a pocket and have it go unnoticed until I needed it. So far - so good!

Questions & Answers

How much does this pen weigh?

Asked by: Soxford
Well, I could open the one I purchased (and the official answer on this one is just weird, it’s a ten dollar pen and they can’t open one sample?). My kitchen scale is accurate to a gram. 4g. This pen barely exists.

Does this pen have a clip to attach to, say, a passport case?

Asked by: Jenz42
This pen does not have a clip. If you would like to purchase a Space Pen with a clip, you may want to consider the Fisher Space Pen Military Pen: https://www.rei.com/product/691132/fisher-space-pen-military-pen
