The AirPress Pen has been awarded with the red dot award 2010 for excellent design. Did you ever try to write for a any length of time horizontally or overhead with a normal ballpoint pen? The gravity and the lack of pressure make this impossible. The Tombow technicians addressed this problem and during comprehensive tests developed the AirPress Pen worldwide patented technology.

At first sight, the Tombow XPA is small and easy to use. However, it has more than one string to its bow: a telescopic mechanism allows it to be opened out to a normal length for writing. At the same time the refill is activated. These features prove the practicality of the Tombow XPA. Furthermore, writing with this pen is simply a pleasure.

Honestly, I think any of Fisher Space Pens can be used for outdoor activities, thanks to the unique design characteristics of the ink and the high precision manufacturing tolerances of the ball point and socket. The ink is fed to the ball point by gas pressure permitting the pen to write in any position. An additional benefit of the closed design is that it keeps the pen from drying out giving the Fisher Space Pen an estimated 100 year shelf life.
5. Inka Ballpoint Pen.
And one of my last finds which we don’t stock but I thought its worth to mention is Inka Ballpoint Pen. Inka pen, manufactured by Inka Corporation, and it is able to write in the harshest of conditions, ranging from the scorching desert environment to very low temperatures and even under water.
But how is this possible? Well, the secret lies in the very special manufacturing technology. First of all, the pen is fabricated from high-strength aerospace-grade materials, the stainless steel barrel being hardened, CNC machined, center less ground then laser engraved. Moreover, it features a pressurized ink cartridge that allows the pen to work in just about any environment, at any temperature, altitude and angle of writing, but also underwater. Some other advantages worth mentioning are the very simple refill system as well as the built-in Delrin PDA tip, which could prove to be very useful whenever the normal styluses don’t work. The Inka pen measures 12.7 cm in length (while open), has a diameter of 0.95 cm, weighs 17 grams and works in the temperature range between -34 C degrees and 148 C degrees. Surprisingly, it’s also quite reasonably cheap, taking second place after Uni-Ball Power Tank in price range.
