I wear pocket tee shirts. All tee pockets are shallow, too small for standard-length pens, unless you poke a hole in the bottom of the pocket. These Pilot Mini G2 pens are the ideal length for tee shirt pockets. And they have a comfortable grip. I only wish I could find 4-paks of blue pens, not just black or assorted colors. The blue ones are perfect for signing documents when you want the original to stand our from (B&W) photocopies.

Here's a followup comment. These pens 'run out of ink' long before the actual ink cartridge is empty. It's like they filled 2/3 of the tube with ink, and the rest with some translucent oil that mixes with some of the ink, making the pen stop writing by the time the cartridge is only half empty. They don't last very long, and you can't buy refills.

YEARS ago, Pilot included one of these beauties with their full-size model as a "gift". I liked it so much I called Pilot to order more. They told me it was only a test promotion - that they had no plans to produce more. So when the refill was exhausted I improvised. I took an ordinary ink pen refill and cut it down. Worked perfectly. All you need to do is to also use the spring from the ordinary pen. Now that the pen is available in a four-pack for a reasonable price I'll be buying them. One thing though - the ink doesn't last forever. The refills are expensive, and you buy a new pen for the price of the refill. So, you might want to do what I used to do - buy cheap ink-pen refills and DIY.

I'm only annoyed that they don't sell them year around locally anymore and I had to order them. These are great, I can keep them in my jeans pockets and they're short enough to fit, also the G2 is in my opinion the best writing pen out there. The only reason they're four start instead of five is they do tend to get splits in the shell after a while and have a little difficulty with coming unscrewed over time.

I'm a fan of the Pilot G2 pens. Was happy to find the Mini. It would have been better if it was able to be used as a keychain/lanyard pen. I ended up drilling a small hole at the top of the pen, attached a cell phone strap, which attached to a magnetic clasp. I ended up with the most awesome magnetic breakaway lanyard pen for work.

I use the full size G2 pens everywhere except in my shirt pocket. These smaller pens fit just right and when you forget to retract the point they do not soil your shirt by poking at the bottom of the pocket. Haven't seen them in any stores for quite awhile - glad to find them here on Amazon.

Seen some people complain that it is too small or ink runs out too fast. Well....for a compact thing like this, it should not be surprising. It is built to be small, not to last long. So, I think mission accomplished. Well done Pilot.

As much as I try to take notes and set most reminders on my smartphone, there is something about scratching notes down on paper that just feels good. I trim the back cover of an extra small Moleskine notebook to a size that slides into the back card pocket of my small leather wallet, so I always have a little scratch paper handy - while keeping my wallet reasonably thin. These pens have been the perfect companion. They're small enough to not be too noticeable and make it easy to write notes at just about any angle.

Tiny and clips to and fits comfortably in my jeans pocket. The gel ink I love so much, available all the time. Short, but not too short to grip, and regular width so that it is comfortable to hold. Inexpensive so that if I do lose it (happens occasionally when I pull out my phone / wallet and dislodges the pen) I don't mind it much - and a 4 pack means that I can quickly replace it. Only complaint is that I would occasionally click the pen accidentally and it'll stain the inside of my jeans pocket. Only thing I would ask for is for the spring to be 2 to 3 times heavier, so that it takes more force to click it.

Note that gel ink takes a few hour to dry - if you write on wet paper, or if the paper gets wet within a couple of hours of writing, the ink would smear.

Edit : one of them went into the washer due to my carelessness. Sad to report that it did not survive the spin cycle. Fortunately I have 3 more.
