The Toughest Pen Around

The X-701 is as tough as they come. With a patent pending pressurized barrel, ability to write in harsh weather conditions, and durable, stainless steel barrel, this will quickly become your go-to every day carry pen.

  • Durable, light weight, stainless steel barrel
  • Anti-reflective matte black finish
  • Patent Pending Pressurized barrel allowing the pen to write on challenging surfaces (extreme angles, upside down) and temperatures ranging from -30 degrees F to 250 degrees F
  • Convenient lanyard loop making it easily attachable to a belt loop, backpack, or climbing gear.
  • Military Grade Drop Tested
  • 5x more durable than everyday plastic pens
  • Refillable with K-refill


The X-701 features a patent pending pressurized barrel, allowing the pen to write upside down and at extreme levels. The X-701’s pressurized barrel is what makes this product unique. Using this refill in other standard pens will not have the same pressurized results. 

Due to the pressurized barrel mechanism, some ink blobbing may occur when the pen is left retracted for an extended period of time.

4 reviews for X-701 Ballpoint Retractable Pen

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    I carry two pens – an f701 and more recently an x701. In my opinion the price is fair for such a nice pen. Oh and yes it has some plastic parts so if you’re looking for an all metal pen you need to consider an f701. What I like about the new x includes the perfect grip and weight. It writes smooth and clear with the stock refill which has a fine point. I’m happy to see the refills are finally becoming available. I give this pen five stars.

    Works great and is tough. It’s also the best color around (black, of course.). Worth the money. However, don’t buy this if you lose pens all the time – stick with disposable. 15 is a bit spendy. The advantage is that you will only have to replace the ink refill rather than the whole pen. Great job, Zebra!

    This pen is one of my favorites. I am also an active college student that is studying culinary arts, baking and confections & hospitality management, and this pen is used in the kitchen environment. It has withstood notes with wet doughy hands and stainless steel tables. The reason for minus one star, is the hook broke off my pen, as I use a NiteIze product to attach it to my belt loop. The pen still worked once I found it.

    This pen writes smooth and doesn’t smudge.

    If the loop was reinforced, this pen definitely gets more than 5 stars.

    This is my favorite pen to use! I am a very active and busy college student who is always on the go, traveling all over. The pressurized barrel mechanism is very unique, something I have never seen before. I took this pen with me while I was on a hike and it withstood quite extreme conditions such as rain and cold. It is a very tough pen and I love being able to attach it to my backpack and other gear. Not only does it work great is also looks really cool.
