Cool Bongs We Love - Five Staff Favorites
There’s no doubt that bongs embody the cool. For heavy flower smokers, water pipes are the smoothest way to go, offering cooling and filtration for your smoke. They’re relatively easy to use, offer massive rips, and come in many shapes and sizes.
Because most bongs are hand-crafted glass pieces, it allows for each maker to put their own spin on the design. If you’ve ever gone into a smoke shop that sells glass you’ve probably perused the bongs and pipes section and man, they can be impressive!
There are so many shapes and colors into which the glass can be molded. This means you're free to choose a piece that suits you and, if you choose, go for something that'll be a great conversation-starter among friends. In this article, we’ll look at five of our favorite bong designs that really catch your eye!

Animal-themed bongs are great! Unlike the jellyfish, the Gecko's artwork is on the outside, with a big lizard crawling across the decorative wart-studded chamber.
