7 Bongs To Take On Your 2019 Vacation
Have you always thought of your bong as a stay-at-home kind of pipe? With travel-friendly options, you don't have to hide your favorite rig from all your friends and family, just because you think it can't leave the house.
With these seven travel-friendly bongs, you may just be able to redefine what it means to vacation around your neck of the woods. And who knows, the experiences you gather along the way might just make the extra bit of luggage well worth your while.
What Makes a Bong Ready for Adventure?
Not every bong is suited for travel (yes, that includes your two-foot conversion rig). However, there are a few factors you can look out for to know whether your current setup is holiday-ready, or whether you need to snag a new one if you plan on jetting off with a bong in the near future.
- Size - Typically, the more compact bongs are better suited for travel. This is due to the fact that they're easier to stow away in luggage, and simpler to maneuver in unfamiliar territory.
- Pieces - When a bong comes as an assemblage, it may be easier to pack away for travel purposes. Whether it's the water pipe itself or the accessories that frequent it, multiple pieces can be a good thing.
- Material - How fragile is your bong? Thick glass can travel well under the right circumstances, though you just have to be wary of its surroundings. If its silicone, you probably don't have to worry about a thing.
- Shape - Typically, the more complex a bong's shape, the more difficult it is to pack for vacation. This is where straight tube bongs and similar designs come into play. You can store them with ease, without having to fret about the extended bits and pieces.
