I was sent a couple JetBags a few weeks back for review and was excited but skeptical. The idea behind the bags is that they have absorbent material inside which will soak up the entire contents of a 750ml bottle of liquid should the need arise. Simply place your bottle in the bag, seal it up and you’re set. Seemed too good to be true.
Not being one to take claims at face value I decided to put the JetBag to the test. I filled an empty Maker’s 46 bottle with black water (sure as hell not going to waste good booze!) and put it in the bag. After a few blows from a hammer the bottle burst and, to my happy surprise, the JetBag absorbed all the liquid. I had even put a couple holes in the bag hitting it with the hammer and nothing came out! Check out the video and see for yourself.
So, the long and short is, I’m skeptical no longer. The bag held up great, the zipper is strong and the material of the bag is robust. If you had a leaky cork you’d have no problem whatsoever and should your bottle actually break the JetBag will contain it. I’ll definitely be buying a few of these to have on hand for traveling.
