Best Pipes for Traveling
The best glass pipes for road trips need to be functional, most importantly. When you’re on the go, you need a piece that gets the job done without a hassle. Simple, straightforward, and easy-to-use pipes like hand pipes and chillums are the best in this case, especially if you are busy doing active things like hiking, going to shows, or checking out local scenes.
What you need in a pipe for traveling:
- Easy concealment
- Easy carrying and usage
- Thick, sturdy glass
Another thing to consider: don't be limited by the style of your pipe. If you are all about water pipes, these are perfectly suitable for road trips too. They allow you to have all the comforts of home without losing out on those smooth, filtered hits you're used to.
