Quality is very good. There are a few short comings though. First, it only holds 2oz of liquid, so frequent changes are necessary. The bottom volume is partly taken up by the stash box and the rest is dead space with reinforcement webbing so it keeps its shape. The chamber is just the neck tube extended into the beaker a couple inches. This is a pain when you fill the neck with ice. (Only 3-4 standard fridge-made ice cubes fit so not a real big difference in smoke) When they start to melt, the water pushes up through the bowl. This is especially frustrating when you leave it filled after a session and comeback to a wet table or floor. Best guess is the tiny capacity was a compromise to make cleaning a little easier.
The second shortcoming is actually cleaning it. It’s difficult to see inside, especially past the ice catcher. But overall, it’s silicone so cleaning it is not as much a chore as compared to a similar glass piece.
My last gripe is the price. $70 is a bit rich for something with so many issues. You can tell from the intricate clear plastic box it comes in that the priority in making this product was style and esthetics over function and performance. The packaging seams to be better thought out than the product inside. It gives me the impression that I am paying way more than I need to for a box that goes in the trash in this $70 price tag.
It looks awesome - colors are very bright.
It’s silicone, so it’s very durable. (Keep in mind that the bowl and stem are glass so not completely indistructable)
It leaks if your not paying attention to your ice.
Tiny volume equals frequent water changes that translates to getting up when couch locked.
Unnecessarily expensive and complex packaging adds to the high price. (Would have liked to see more eco-friendly packaging too)
