Zippo Tan Leather Belt Pouch with Loop
Product Code: ZLPLBWhat better way to show off your Zippo lighter than a purpose made Zippo belt pouch. This one is made from tan leather and has a loop for easy attachment to your belt.
Read on to find out more about Zippo lighters and why we like them.
Zippo was created in 1932 by George Blaisdell, an oilman who watched a friend struggling to light a woman’s cigarette on a breezy day. In the small town of Bradford, Philadelphia, Blaisdell tinkered away, and built a small chimney around a wick to produce a windproof lighter. He gave it the famous lifetime guarantee and called the company Zippo.
Zippo's first location was a small machine shop on the second floor of the Richerson & Pryde garage on Bolyston Street in downtown Bradford, Philadelphia. The Zippo Windproof Lighter sign originally painted on the multi-paned window of the shop has become a symbol of Zippo's early days.
During World War II Blaisdell, a very smart promoter, shipped hundreds of Zippos to generals and war correspondents. Word of the lighter's durability and dependability spread, and the U.S. government ordered every lighter the Zippo Manufacturing Company could produce between 1943 and 1945.
When Blaisdell died in 1978 Zippo went to his two daughters, Harriett Wick and Sarah Dorn. They knew the business quite well having grown up stuffing cotton wicks into Zippos. Today their children work for the company too.
Save a few minor changes in the flint wheel and case finishes, the Zippo remains nearly exactly as George Blaisdell created it over 70 years ago. Today, the Zippo brand makes tape measures, knives, money clips, writing instruments and key holders, all engravable and personalizable to the owner. The American-made quality and Lifetime Guarantee makes the Zippo lighter a valuable collector's item around the world, with collectors' clubs in England, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, and of course, the United States.

Most grateful for your prompt attention to my order. The wheels arrived yesterday, slightly narrower axis than originals but a couple of washers have sorted that and the case now runs as good as new. Many thanks.

Using your fantastic website, I was transported to a snowy Christmas and all the special gifts that can be ordered at that time. You have a great selection and I would say the 'go to' company for outdoor equipment/pursuits.
Customer service was amazing. I felt you and Paul really cared about my order and took a personal interest. I'll certainly be purchasing a few more items from your wonderful selection and fab website. So well laid out and easy to navigate. Thank goodness for internet shopping.
