Seems like a good idea to me.  Last time I was hunting I fell out of a tree. I was picking bits of glass out of my ass for a week.

Whiskey in a Capri Sun pouch? Lord, I want that for my lunches at the office.

In Michagan..the Blind are legally allowed to Hunt.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/2338838/posts

Now add alcohol packets to the mix and you have blind people roaming around Michigan armed with guns and probably drunk. they might not shoot you..or they might shoot you they could just wonder in your back yard and take a shot at you..all legal.

Drunk and blind and armed...USA USA...

Pants thoroughly shat. Since when has it been ok for an outdoorsman to unload and put away his rifle, make camp, and enjoy a stiff drink around a camp fire? This is a first. We have to put an end to this! Fun could be had! A safe hunt could be made more enjoyable!

The blind hunt with much assistance from assistants.

I've been looking for something like this after seeing something similar in a Ray Mears episode.

too bad they don't make it with 190, or vodak.

It is refillable, dump it out refill with what you want.

true. I hadn't thought of that.

But, looking at the picture, I'm wondering if I trust that plastic lid to not break and spill everything inside my backpack.
 
2013-07-27 05:43:19 AM  
It might last a year due to novelty, but then reality will hit and the price point will drive it face down.

You can buy five times that much no name whiskey for the same price in a plastic bottle.

A hip flask too complicated for these folks?
 
2013-07-27 08:44:03 AM  
Yeah, because people who go camping and hiking never drink alcohol.
 
2013-07-27 08:44:55 AM  
Hey, you laugh but I considered my flask of George Dickel essential gear for my segment of the Appellation trail this year.  Resealable bag sounds like it could save weight over my traditional stainless steel flask.
 
2013-07-27 08:45:01 AM  
Subby is no fun at parties either.
 
2013-07-27 08:45:41 AM  
Um, pretty sure you can buy "resealable" (ie, it has a screw-on top) water pouches at the dollar store. I wonder if you could fill those with some other fluid? The only way this could possible be stupider is if the pouch was 3D printed.

Twice as much Jim Beam in a plastic bottle sells for about the same price, so no.
 
2013-07-27 08:47:26 AM  
Subby is right, people are too irresponsible to be trusted with resealable bags.
Alcohol should only be sold in glass bottles.
 
2013-07-27 08:47:26 AM  
Yeah.
Platypus one-liter soft bottle full of Jack Daniels'.
It's been done.
 
2013-07-27 08:48:10 AM  
It's the little pouched I've seen them selling pureed fruit in.

I shall now offer why it shouldn't be allowed. It's a soft, concealable package that can be easily smuggled into venues that might want people to stay sober or pay the house for drinks. It won't produce the same sort of bulge a rigid mini bottle would.
 
2013-07-27 08:48:46 AM  
Because no one has access to a flask.

Its not the business of the government to protect the business models of restaurants or concerts.

Where do you live that it's legal for a blind person to shoot at you?  Have you broken into their house?
 
2013-07-27 09:00:30 AM  
If these pouches didn't exist, there would be no drinking on hunting trips!

Didn't realize being an outdoors man meant you always carried a gun.
 
2013-07-27 09:07:11 AM  
That's right subby. Because no one goes fishing, or camping, or hiking or anything else. Everyone who likes the outdoors carries a gun. Now why don't you go make sure your snowflakes bubble wrap hasn't come loose and update you "mommy blog".

Because the last time some idiot with a gun shot my house the deckposts didn't stop it so I'm going to wager that bubble wrap wouldn't either

/ and that's why nobody is allowed to hunt on my land anymore

Shhhh, let them have their caricatures...it's cute. Probably think the entire South is filled with rednecks too.

But on a different note, the trick is to wear radiation orange when in the vicinity of hunters...and to always walk behind Cheney, never in front of him (and never, ever look him directly in the eyes...this makes him angry).

So what?  Judge people by their actual behavior, not their potential behavior.  Punish the wicked, not the masses.  Or does that not fit into your zero tolerance mind set.
 
2013-07-27 09:22:00 AM  
I used to be on a couple of the major ultralight hiking lists. There was a lot of discussion about the best way to carry alcohol around. People would carry everclear in platypus bags and dilute in water with the gatorade packets. As an added bonus, it's a fuel source for lots of homemade camping stoves. But yeah, putting whatever whiskey you want into a platypus bag makes way more sense than paying for this stuff.

Agreed.  I haven't had the particular whisky that's in the article so maybe its good enough to command such a price and the container is just an added feature?  On the other hand it could just be overpriced crap.  I'll stick with my George and flask on long hikes.

Hey, musicians use those, too!  They tuck neatly into a guitar case, and are great for gigs on outdoor stages.

How else are you supposed to have hunting accidents?
 
2013-07-27 10:13:15 AM  
This is a good idea for the distiller/retailer; less so for the consumer.  You'd have to be an idiot to buy it.

Distiller: "I'm going to sell you a small but convenient amount of booze in this handy 'outdoorsman' pouch, at a 50% markup in price per volume because you get this cool pouch.  And it's convenient."

Consumer:  "But I could just buy an ordinary bottle and dump some of it in a hip flask.  It's not like whiskey continues to age once it's left the barrel.  And when you go into the bush, aren't you supposed to 'leave only footprints, take only memories'...?"

"Yeah, but this saves you from having to do your own pouring (and having to own a reusable hip flask). And you uh have that backwards--when you go into the bush, you're definitely supposed to leave garbage there, not haul it back out with you.  Plus, you know, cool pouch!"

"Okay, sold!"

I farking love going camping/hunting and drinking whisky.

This is relevant to my interests.

/just bring a damn flask

Thurston Howell: Distiller: "I'm going to sell you a small but convenient amount of booze in this handy 'outdoorsman' pouch, at a 50% markup in price per volume because you get this cool pouch. And it's convenient."


Though now that I think about it, the markup is about what you pay for those little travelsized bottles, and they sell well enough that I've never seen a liquor store without them.

For all of your outdoor, movie theater, concert, sneaking in to the office, etc. alcoholic needs, may I humbly present the Porta Shot.  Each pouch, for lack of a better descriptive, is about the size of a condom package.  They fit nicely in pockets, purses, under a hat, or wherever else you want to hide them.  The booze isn't fantastic, but it's sure better than paying full price at a venue for whatever swill they serve.  Oh, and I've also gotten them by TSA every time I've tried...
