Ham-handed stoners can still use a bong without living in constant fear of destroying a work of art. Silicone bongs can be dropped an infinite number of times, and still be no worse for the wear. The only breakable parts of them are normally just the bowl and the downstem and if you choose glass, those aren’t so expensive to replace. If you buy a silicone bong, in fact, I’d highly recommend you buy a few extra glass bowls and down stems to fit it. Alternatively, you can use metal and totally bypass the trauma and drama of piece-breakage altogether.
If you’re a glass bong user, there’s a chance that the first thing that breaks is your bowl. Here’s a device that will not only put an end to your broken bowls but improve your overall experience in ways you can’t imagine. The Invincibowl.
The Kahuna from Piecemaker is billed as “the world’s largest silicone bong.” It measures 2 feet tall, so it can hold plenty of smoke for massive hits. It has a built-in lighter holder, removable base for easy cleaning, and an ice catcher. Its signature Hex-Tea downstream creates more bubbles for cooler, smoother hits. Comes with a removable, replaceable silicone downstem and a removable, replaceable stainless steel bowl. The piece sports a spill-proof cap for travel. Available in five colors. $128.00
Trailer Park Boys Silibongs let you rep your favorite comedy show while you get high. These silicone bongs are flexible, bendable, and made of BPA free, food grade silicone. The straight tube design stands 14 inches tall. It includes a 14mm clear glass bowl and diffused 4-inch downstem. It has a removable ice catcher and has a sturdy suction cup base. Comes in four models: The Julian, The Ricky, The Bubbles, and The Triple Threat. $79.99
In a market increasingly flooded with silicone options, Eyce creates some extraordinarily functional pieces. The Eyce Silicone Beaker Bong has a large hidden stash jar and hidden dab pad/rolling tray. It also features a magnetic lighter holder, built-in stainless steel poker, and a borosilicate 14mm glass on glass downstem and bowl. It stands 12 inches high and is five inches at the base. $69.99
Bendable, foldable, and twistable, the Strong Silicone water bong is almost indestructible. That makes it perfect for festivals and outdoor settings where bongs take a beating. The bongs come in two sizes, Adventurer, and the smaller Scout. The bongs are available in several colors; one model, the “Glow Scout,” glows in the dark. All are made from BPA free, non-toxic, FDA approved food grade silicone. The only breakable parts are the downstem and bowl, which are borosilicate glass. The bong suctions to any smooth surface, so no more accidentally knocking it over. $45.00-$65.00
Unlike traditional silicone bongs, this piece features a see-through main chamber where one of the percolators is located. This bong stands about 9.5 inches tall and features a bent neck design. It can easily be dissembled for cleaning. In the beaker-style base is a diffused downstem for the first round of filtering and cooling. Smoke then passes into the second chamber, featuring 12 holes for maximum filtration. The piece comes with a 14mm female glass joint and includes a 14mm male glass bowl. $59.99
The Roll-Uh-Bowl is a classic, no-frills silicone bong. It’s ideal for those looking for a quick hit on the go. It was designed by weed enthusiasts in Montana who wanted to find a way to bring their bongs with them on outdoor excursions. The Roll-Uh-Bowl uses a metal bowl with a plastic stem, so there’s nothing breakable included. These things are so durable, you can just toss ’em in the dishwasher for cleaning. $34.99-$59.99
This single chamber, diffused downstem, glow-in-the-dark bong has an ice-pinch ready to hold cubes in place for cool hits (it can also be thrown in the freezer). It comes with an 18mm female joint, glass on silicone, an 18mm/14mm removable downstem, and a 14mm male bowl for herb. Nails for dabbing are available. The bong stands 13.75 inches high. $42.99
The Kali is the first of the new Chemistry Klass line from Piecemaker. It has a compact, travel-friendly size and features the Komfy Fit mouthpiece. Its Hex Tek downstem produces more bubbles and smoother hits. The bong features a removable and replaceable stainless steel bowl. It also has the Piecemaker Kap so you can easily take your bowl with you on the go. This bong is 8.5 inches high and is available in five colors. $36.00
These straight beaker-style silicone bongs are affordable and effective. Foldable for easy storage and traveling, they are also easy to clean. $26.24-$34.72
Made of food-grade silicone, this bong features Rasta colors and two silicone ice catchers. It stands 14 inches tall and comes with a 14mm male glass bowl. Also included is a 14mm/18mm removable glass multi-hole diffused downstem, 3 inches long. $29.98
