The Famous Cigarette Holder

HST Understood TarGard

Hunter was always quick to point out that our Permanent Cigarette Filter System was much more than just a cigarette holder. Although our product does stand in nicely as a cigarette holder, it's purpose is to filter tar particles from your cigarette smoke. Since 1963, TarGard has used the Venturi Principle as the method for tar filtration.

We're proud that for so many years we had an enthusiastic TarGard brand steward. For that reason, and many more, we continue to remember and celebrate Hunter S. Thompson.

More Reasons for Celebrating The Doctor

  1. He was one of the greatest authors of all time.
  2. He never smoked without a TarGard Permanent Cigarette Filter.
  3. He understood TarGard filters:

    "For one thing, it is not a holder. It is a filter. A big difference. A filter clears a full ounce of scum and tar a day, keeps it from ruining my lungs. The first time I used it, I saw what came out of a filter and I never stopped."

  4. He left with us great quotes like:

    "I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes." and "When the going gets weird, the weird go pro."

  5. We love his style.
