These are nice pens - but the ink used to place the design on them is easily rubbed off. The carabiner is also not very durable. I would certainly order them again, as they do write well, and the multiple colors available is a nice touch. They are reasonably priced - so expecting much more in terms of the production quality isn't realistic. I WOULD recommend this product to a friend - but I would certainly provide the information about the shortcomings. I gave these to the youth on my summer workcamp team and they appreciated receiving them - and they were very reasonably priced for a way to say THANK YOU.
