The old saying ‘You can’t hold your drink’ has been around for years. Well now you can literally hold your drink and dispense it too, with this superb and innovative bag.
Swankey Bag is designed to not only carry a box full of wine, but it also has the ability to dispense your favourite tipple without even opening it. Fill it with your favourite drink from wine to cocktails or I suppose water 😉 , pop an ice pack on top and you have the perfect way to take your drink with you.
With a 5 litre capacity and a tap on the side, this bag is perfect for picnics, days to the beach or even dare I say a night out round town, although you’d have to find the outfit to match of course! 🙂
As well as carrying your favourite tipple, juice, or even water the bag is big enough and sturdy enough to carry other items too, phone, cups, flop flops, towel etc, even a big bag of crisps and a good few butties.
The Swankey Bag has been developed by Tracey Luebbers of Glasgow, Missouri, USA. She employs a team of women to craft these bags ensuring employment and manufacture stays in her local area. The Swankey Bag is made to last, manufactured from stain and mildew resistant, easy to clean material that’s been tested to withstand 500 hours of direct sun light, making it perfect for those long days is the sun. For British readers, this means we don’t need to worry about it being messed up by the sun after using it for the one day of sun we get a year.
The Swankey Bag comes in over 10 fabrics from bright and beautiful to camoflague with a pink interior, they even do an evening version too. For all those people looking for a more toned down messenger style bag that can dispense over 5 litres of beer, you can opt for the ‘Bender’ (not a great name in Britain but I understand how it’s meant). This bag is capable of carrying 5 litres of beer, both the real ale variety and your standard fizzy canned or bottled beer stuff, no it’s not got a full sized hand pump on the side but it will still keep your beer cool throughout all your adventures.
It’s one of those devices that’s such a simple concept it’s crazy nobody has come up with it sooner, for me I would have designed a discrete cover for the tap, this means you can smuggle it in places much easier – that’s if you were that sort of person of course :-). Another idea could be getting rid of the tap and attaching a long piece of tube, easier to drink and we then could call it the bag pipe – well it is made in Glasgow lol 😀
Joking a side it’s a great product supporting local people in their community plus it’s strong and robust enough to be used year after year.
