WineSkinÂ® Bottle Bag
Excellent for the traveling wino
I picked up 4 bottles of wine while visiting family on the east coast and decided to come back to Hawaii with them. With such a long flight ahead I wanted to make sure the wine was properly packed to avoid any booze breakage. I saw the WineSkin Bottle Bags and thought this would be perfect! I followed the instructions and placed the wine in the bag. I squeezed the air out and properly sealed the WineSkin. Once sealed nothing was getting in or out, ie... if the bottle broke the wine would not dribble out.
I was nervous at first packing the wine in my luggage with the rest of my personal effects, then I reminded myself at how tightly sealed the WineSkin bag was. I zipped up my bag wtih the wine nestled inside and was on my way to the airport. After a 15 hour flight I retrieved my luggage and made my way home. I quickly unpacked my bag and discovered the wine survived. No broken bottles and no wine drenched clothing.
I highly recommend these bags for those that want to protect their vino while traveling. I was even able to carefully pull the bag open and reuse the bag. I've pulled out the WineSkin bag when we take wine over to friends or to the beach and received several comments on how cleaver an idea these bags are!
Mahalo for a great product!

We packed this to Hawaii and return and never lost a bottle of wine.
But we knew IF the bottle broke we would not have a suitcase mess.

Put this in your checked baggage!
Thank god for this product. It works great to prevent spillages and breakages during travel. My husband used three of them in his checked baggage on an international haul. We will definitely be buying these again. It says they are only good for one use, but I bet you could get a few more with some double sided tape. If we try it, I'll let you know!

Booze is just the beginning...
We pack about 4 of these in our suitcase to bring home fragile souvenirs...
They pack flat, but have kept the following safe...
A glass Christmas Tree from Murano, Italy
A music box from Sorrento, Italy
An alabaster vase from Volterra, Italy
A hand carved wooden box from Mostar Bosnia
Handcarved wooden Santas from Russian
A jar of Attiki Honey from Greece
2 port glasses from Porto, Portugal
the list goes on....We never leave on an international adventure without these tucked into our luggage!
