Is there a single word to describe something as "possible to be held".

Neither "holdable" or "grippable" are words, and I really need it to be one word, for simplicity.


The product is the perfect X size.

    Most people wouldn't think twice if you used "grippable". – Canis Lupus Mar 25 '15 at 15:41

    Please (as per guidelines re. single word requests) give us an example of its use. That will help towards better answers. – anongoodnurse Mar 25 '15 at 16:09

As related in comment, both "holdable" and "grippable" are usable and easily understood, but for good measure here's another option:

graspable, adjectival form of

grasp verb (used with object)

1. to seize and hold by or as if by clasping with the fingers or arms.

2. to seize upon; hold firmly. See, Dictionary.com grasp
