product Review

-- Product Review -- 

Foldable wine bottles – who knew? …What a concept!

The first thing my husband and I noticed was that the bags felt thin and very flat, but they do expand and can be filled right to the top. My husband uttered, “Neat idea – you can just clip it on a belt or backpack; could use it for water… or rye and 7-up (ha ha)”. Humor aside we did fill it with water right up to capacity and it had no problem holding that amount securely and it stood up straight even on a slightly angled surface. I like that you could put any liquid in this from juice and ice tea to beer or harder spirits. The neck is fairly small so I recommend using a funnel to pour your beverage in the bag. Each bag has the capacity to hold a full bottle of wine; each bottle holds 750 ml (26 oz.) of liquid and when empty weighs only 1 ounce (3 grams).

The bags can be chilled in the fridge and then stored in a cooler or insulated bag for additional chill factor. The write-up on this product states that there is a foil layer that helps preserve the ingredients on a hot summer day. The packaging reports that this foldable bottle is dishwasher safe, very strong, durable, but lightweight.

If this tips over, there aren’t any worries about cracks or breaks for your container, and you won’t be leaving broken glass behind either. Bottles are heavy and can tip over so easily and crack or break when you are taking a break beside a creek or where there are lots of rocks around.

The packaging that came along with this product was paperboard and was therefore recyclable. The product arrived with a bonus gift - a burgundy reusable canvas or cotton blend bag for wine bottles. The company believes in the product so strongly they are offering a lifetime guarantee.

P.S. (a note written after the article was published) - There are a couple things I do have to comment on after using the product for a few weeks - the design on the bottle makes it look like you are toting alcohol which defeats the purpose of being discrete. It might benefit from having a drink tube with a mouth controlled valve at the end (like you see on backpacker's gear), perhaps individual valves that are color coded
