VinniBag is the answer to the call of Fra-gee-lay. Case in point: one time, back when I had a sugar mama, I went to Chilean wine country and while going through customs upon returning to my homeland I watched a dude pick up his suitcase from the baggage claim conveyor belt and a steady stream of wine was just pouring out of every one of its crevices. And I thought, You poor bastard. Everything you own is now ruined. Man am I glad I packed the wine in my girlfriend's luggage.

Engineered specifically to withstand air travel and high altitudes, VinniBag endeavors to prevent these very SOL experiences. And now that I'm single, responsible for transporting my own wine and other breakables across the world, I could probably use one. Though tailored to fit a 750mL wine bottle, VinniBag's design and composition can protect any glass or otherwise fragile item that fits within its inner pouch from jostling and impact, plus significant changes in air pressure and temperatures. Additional examples of VinniBag candidates include champagne, olive oil, certain spirit bottles, perfume, jams and other specialty foods in glass jars, and crystal vases.

VinniBag performs well during travel by air, car, boat, bike, rail, or backpack since its inner chamber's open architecture conforms to the enclosed object, immobilizing it and cushioning its entire surface area. When sealed, VinniBag also provides leakage protection, making it an option for storing shampoo bottles and other toiletries that tend to ooze during temperature and pressure changes.

VinniBag's are reusable for as long as they're properly cared for. Product dimensions are 23" long x 8-1/2" wide while flat and 16" long x 17-1/2" wide when inflated. It can hold bottles up to 13" tall.
