Whether you are purchasing a cheaper glass pipe, or a high-end bong, protecting your investment is important. Padded pipe pouches come in many styles, shapes, and sizes. Oldschool fabric soft pouches have been the industry standard for decades. In more recent times the hard shell pouches have become a popular choice for protecting your glass pipe investment. Hardshell cases consist of a hard outer shell, while the inside is made of soft egg-crate style foam.
For bongs standard tube length padded pouches are inexpensive, durable, and come in a vast array of colors and patterns. Over the past decade as the price of bongs has risen, so has the need to make sure these functional art pieces are protected. Pelican style bong cases have a hard outer plastic case, packed on the inside with customization foam inserts, and seem to be the go-to for protecting high-end functional art piece bongs.
Regardless of the price of your glass pipe, bong, or dab rig, making sure it is protected while not in use is of the utmost importance. Because if your glass piece breaks, how are you going to smoke?
