It's OK...

  • By Wayne from Galesville MD USA on Tuesday, January 18, 2011
  • Pros: It does write on lots of surfaces.
  • Cons: It is not comfortable, easy to use or very practical.
  • Review: It's not what I expected. Its tight fit makes it difficult to get out of the cap, and then it doesn't really fit properly in my had.

Not really worth it

  • By A Customer on Friday, May 22, 2009
  • Pros: Size
  • Cons: Cost, lack of refill as advertised
  • Review: I own other Fisher space pens, so I knew what to expect with the Trekker. The pen is compact, and I like that. It's easy to use, even with my larger hands. The ink writes on everything I've tried, with two exceptions (metals and glossy photos). The pen comes with a clamshell case, black neck lanyard, black metal carbiner, and a split ring. The package advertises a refill being included, but the Trekker comes with only one ink cartridge (the one already inside it). The retention of the pen in its cap is great; some might call it too tight. If I try to pull the pen out and use it while it's hanging off the neck lanyard, the lanyard's safety will snap before the cap will come off. This happens every time. I didn't have the unscrewing problem some have mentioned. However, I still feel that the price (I paid $22 locally for mine) is a bit high. They could've included a refill or a mail-in coupon, but they didn't. I wouldn't buy this pen again because of the problems listed above, unless the price was lower.

What you see is what you get

  • By Alan W. from Anchorage AK USA on Friday, January 16, 2009
  • Pros: writes upside down as advertised
  • Cons: does not write on all surfaces
  • Review: The pen is advertised as being able to write on all surfaces,upside down, under water...etc...It does not write under water or on aluminium, steel surfaces! Better stick with a lead pencil which does write under water, on steel surfaces and upside down!

Barrel comes unscrewed

  • By A Customer from California on Thursday, April 23, 2009
  • Pros: Compact, rugged, cap stays on.
  • Cons: The two halves of the pen come unscrewed.
  • Review: Everything is as described but there is a major design flaw. The barrel of the pen easily comes unscrewed from the top, leaving you with the top part of the pen enclosed in the cap hanging from your belt, but the rest is missing. The manufacturer did replace the missing parts for free when this happened the first day my son used the pen, but he has to remember to regularly tighten the two halves to prevent a repeat failure.
