If you're like most people who smoke pot, your bong is one of your prized possessions. It's more than a weed accessory, it's a mainstay for every party you throw and the one thing you reach for when you've had a rough day.
Even if you don't have one of the most expensive weed accessories out there, you care about your bong. To avoid dealing with a broken bong, you need to make sure that you store it in a safe space—ideally away from places where it could get dropped.
A good bong bag is a must-have if you want to travel with your bong. If you want to keep your bong as safe as possible, you might want to check out these padded bong bags next time you go on a road trip.
What elements should padded bong bags have?
Before we start this article, let's talk about what separates the well-padded bong bags from the bad ones. A bad bong bag won't adequately protect glassware, and will not be smell-proof. It may also be poorly made, which means you may have to replace it often.
Since cannabis is still widely illegal, you have to think about police safety. Smell-proof bags are crucial if you're transporting dab rigs, glass bongs, or pot. Otherwise, you could get arrested. So, discretion and the smell-proof lining is a must if you want to have a good bong bag.
10-Inch Padded Duffle Tube by Dime Bags
Dime Bags is one of the first companies to roll out with padded bong bags that are discreet, smell-proof, spill-proof, and durable enough for a serious road trip. These heavy-duty bags are ideal for people who have smaller bongs that they want to haul on a trip.
These bags come in a variety of colors, have extra storage compartments for your weed rolling papers or bud, and are customizable (FYI, we think this would be an amazing gift for a stoner girlfriend).
"Tube Bag" by Vatra
If you're looking for padded bong bags for longer rigs, or just looking for a good hookah bag, Vatra's got you covered. This extremely padded, exceptionally discreet bag isn't just smell-proof; it's designed to be shock-proof as well.
This particular bag is double-stitched and filled with a cotton-like material. The end result is one of the best bong bags for people who really want to emphasize protection. Best of all? It's so nondescript that it fades into just about every background you could imagine.
Omerta Transporter Backpack by Dime Bags
Dime Bags does it again, this time with their "Omerta" line. Omertà, in case you didn't know, is the infamous mafia lingo that alludes to the pledge of silence each mafioso makes. The idea behind this line, therefore, is as much discretion as humanly possible.
This is one of the only padded bong bags that looks like a schoolbag. As the name suggests, discretion and smell-proofing is the name of the game here—and as such, Dime Bags totally aced it. This is as low-key a bong bag as you can get, and even features seven different compartments for all kinds of storage goodies.
It may be pricey, but if you value discretion, it's an investment worth every penny.
Bully Heavy Padded Bag by Dime Bags
If you love the high-quality gear created by Dime Bags, but aren't looking for bulky padded bong bags, you might want to check out their Bully Heavy Padded Bag line. Much like their Omertá bags, Bully is about discretion.
