Let’s face it, it’s a lot of fun to take your glass pipe with you on road trips, to concerts, and on all those fun outdoor adventures.

Helpful Hints for Traveling with Glass Pipes
Don’t Carry Your Pipe In Your Pocket
Glass pipes are revered for their small size and portability. As such, glass pipes, especially small one-hitters, can fit easily into the front or back pocket of your pants. But in the unfortunate case that you sit down too hard or bump into something, the last thing you want is a pocketful of your shattered glass pipe. Not only will you be out a pipe, but you could end up with an injury.
Invest In a Glass Pipe Case
There’s a whole array of glass pipe cases that make storing and transporting your glass pipes safe and secure. The best part is, these cases come in many different sizes, colors, styles, and materials. Most pipe cases are meant to keep your pipe in a secured position so that it doesn’t get jarred around when being carried. Some even come with a built-in stereo! How cool right? If you’re taking your pipe on a crazy intense outdoor adventure like mountain biking, snowboarding, or climbing, a hard case might be the better choice, where a soft case is ideal for everyday carrying.
Create Your Own Glass Pipe Pouch
While you can buy different types of glass pipe pouches, you can also make these quite easily. This may be ideal for more custom or oddly shaped pipes. Either way, you’ll want to create a secure pouch or case that will keep your glass pipe stable and protected.
You can make a hard case out of an old eyewear case. Simply reinforce the interior of the case with materials that will cushion your piece while keeping it in place to avoid breakage. If you prefer a soft case, a thick wool sock can easily be turned into a pipe case. Using cloth or old socks, you can stuff the wool sock with a material that will help protect your piece. Next, use a piece of twine, ribbon, or twisty tie as a way to secure the open end of the sock to keep your pipe in place.
Be Careful Where You Leave Your Pipe
It’s easy to fall into bad habits when you’re not in the comfort of your home, especially when you don’t have flat or secure surfaces to place your pipe while traveling or adventuring outdoors. Avoid setting your pipe on slanted surfaces like the hood of cars or flimsy outdoor tables that could cause your pipe to roll onto the ground and shatter. Don’t leave your pipe on camping chairs and other outdoor furniture, as that’s a sure way for you or someone else to accidentally break the pipe.
Instead, determine a safe place to keep your pipe from the get-go. This will help you keep track of your pipe while traveling and can reduce the risk of it breaking.
Most importantly, pack smart. It’s easy to just throw objects together in a daypack, especially if you’re packing in a hurry. Being an organized packer can help you be more conscious about where and how you’re packing your glass pipe, so there’s less risk of it breaking while being transported.
