I love this pen and had been given one. I then ordered 10 and none of the tops will stay on when in the writing position. I can be in the middle of writing and the top will fall off on to the floor. It is very disturbing when I am in a meeting and I have to try to find the top to my pen. The original one I received as a gift works perfectly and I am disappointed that my 10 do not work. I really like the size and convenience of the one that works properly and would order more if they would work.

The cap is too loose when it is placed in the writing position. It will fall if the pen is inverted. Faulty design that needs to be fixed.

I WANT to give this pen a higher review, but "if it don't click, it's not my pick".
That lid needs to let me know it's in for the LONG HAUL! I want it to fall in place with STABILITY! Don't move around, don't worry me that it might fly off and be lost forever. I need to find a relationship with a more stable pen.

This pen, which is now impossible to find in any retail store, has always been my go to. I will admit that I like a scratchy, fine point pen and this one is it. This pen is a perfect size (I enjoy a compact pen), the cap prevents leaking, the ink cartridge is smooth and doesn't clog. I used this pen on Law School Exams and can guarantee that over 3-4 hours of writing it's a very comfortable pen. I find that the smaller size helps prevent hand cramping.

LOVE this pen. And at this price how can you NOT give it a go?

Zebra products are typically of excellent quality. The F-301 is an exception....
An essential design element/function of a compact writing instrument design must make the most of its extended length. As such, the cap when removed from the business end and placed on the pen "butt," should fit snugly. In this instance, it does not - it fits loosely and is not what one would call a precision fit...

Well made and compact but expands to a full size pen. Perfect for carrying around in a pocket. The stainless steel and black body looks professional.

Not quite as stylish as some other (pricier) compact pens but certainly gets the job done. My one minor complaint (which would really only be a half-star deduction but I guess I'm rounding down) is that the bottom of the pen isn't really designed to have the cap snap into place to hold it there. It's very loose and doesn't make for a comfortable hold while writing. It's easily fixed with a small piece of electrical or label tape to make the fit more snug but it's something that should've been functional out of the box.

This is a reasonably high-quality pen, good for what it purports to be: a pocket-sized ballpoint. As others have noted, the cap does not click or snap into place when posted, and can feel loose if you brush your hand against it. But when capped, it's roughly the same size as a Fisher Space Pen (bullet-shape), an Ohto Rook, or a KaWeCo Liliput. Of all of these pens, only the Liliput has no problem with a posted cap, and then only by virtue of having no cap at all.

If you want a pocket-sized pen with a secure cap, the Liliput comes in a fountain pen whose cap screws nicely onto the back. If you want a workhorse ballpoint you can toss in your pocket or bag, and can risk losing without a lot of emotional or financial pain, the F-301 Compact is your best bet.
