There is a big difference between smoking bud from a small spoon, pipe and a double bubbler. Each type of glass piece offers its own experience. Many glass collectors like to keep a different piece for each occasion, such as having one for small solo sessions, another for sharing, or reserving certain special pieces for parties. There are lots of types of pipes out there; Spoons, Sherlocks, Steamrollers, dab rigs, nectar collectors, etc. … Don’t worry though we’re not diving in too deep. We’ll give you a quick rundown on the basic types of pipes to help you figure out which is best for you. And we’ve gone the extra mile of pairing each type of weed pipe with our favorite Dime Bags to keep your piece safe.
You got your straight shooters, or chillums, spoons, bubblers, Sherlocks, and many more. What do you want to look for in a pipe? Check the mouthpiece. Does it look comfy for your lips? Check the bowl size. Is it small, or is it too big? A good glass pipe is a foundational piece in any head’s collection. You can find pipes in pretty much any size, color, and design imaginable. Find something that matches your personality and fits your smoking needs. To protect it, we recommend something safe, padded, and smell-proof, like the Omerta pouches.
For efficiency and maximum impact, a bong is the way to go. The best bongs are made from borosilicate glass and have ice-catchers that allow you to cool off the hot smoke. A good bong is hard to replace. We recommend picking up a safe case that’s padded, smell-proof, and spill proof like the Duffle Tube.
Dab rigs are great for vaping concentrates. They can be complicated though, and often require a treasure chest of tools and accessories to get the job done. It’s best to keep your stash, oils, torch, tools, rig, dome, nails, dab mats, and everything else you need for a successful sesh all in one place. The Suitcase from Dime Bags is the solution for your dab needs. The Suitcase is protective, padded, organized, and yet discreet, spill-proof and portable, and it comes in sizes ranging from 5”-14”, which should fit smaller rigs.
A great alternative to smoking is vaporizing and there are all kinds of vape pens out there, so it’s easy to find one that fits your personality. Some you have to load with concentrates or attach a cartridge. Most typically require a battery charger for the heating coil. You want to keep your pen in a clean place so debris doesn’t get into the mouthpiece. Keep your cartridges & dabs, along with your charger and a few spare pre-rolls just in case in one of Dime Bag’s classic Padded Pouches. The 9” model should be perfect for your vape pen or dab pen and a couple joints.
