Turns out that Fisher has a new pen called The Stowaway.
This is an unusual addition to their line up along with the Bullet, Astronaut, Mars, Millennium & Zero Gravity pens
remarkable thing about the pen is the size that is just slightly larger
than a Fisher refill. Essentially the pen body and cover just fits
over the refill.
Compared to the body of the bullet the Stowaway is even smaller.
Unlike its brethren the Stowaway does not have a clip but easily fits in a pocket or wallet.
barrel and cap are made of plastic, so for those looking for a smaller
version of the machined bullet pen will find themselves disappointed
of its small size the pen is not good for writing volumous amounts but
will suffice for jotting down quick notes or getting a phone number.
In general the Fisher pens are dependable in the field and can stand up to a great amount of abuse.
ever since 1967 Fisher Space Pens have been used by American astronauts
on all manned space flights and is now used by the Russians as well.
Even Tang didn’t have a run that long.
The pen can be found at REI outlets in black (pictured), red, blue & green.
