We've had 2 of these for years. They are inexpensive, lightweight, and seems to disappear into a purse, pocket or backpack. They appear so nondescript as to be overlooked. You do not smell your skunky hand rolls at all. I assume unless destroyed by some strange event, that these holders will last forever. I buy them for gifts for all my smoking friends. We've always used black, but with the new legal status, there are many nice colors.
