How to Choose a Bong

The size of your bong is an important consideration. Mini bongs are great for travel. You can easily fit these into a pouch or backpack. Larger bongs are better for use at home, where you can get comfortable and store them properly.

Materials are another important consideration—glass bongs are the best though you can also pick up different materials, like acrylic, ceramic, and silicone. Silicone is best if you’re not good with keeping the glass from breaking (there’s always at least one of you in stoner circles!).

Look for extra features like percolators, ice catchers, and ash catchers. These extras refine your smoking experience and provide you with an immediate upgrade. You may also want to purchase different bowl sizes, which makes switching between solo smoking and smoking with friends easier.
