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.
