Sneaking a large quantity of wine into a movie theater, a concert, a cruise ship, or your kid’s baseball game and looking to avoid detection? The CamelBak is just too obvious. Check out these innovative tools that are designed to let you smuggle your booze like a pro:
The Winecoat is a purse-shell for your bag-o-wine, available in Red, Black, and White for better outfit coordination. A few things to watch out for: one reviewer noted that this wine purse only holds bags from the “trendier” 3L boxes, not the old school 5L boxes. And others were unhappy that the bag didn’t come with a refillable bladder, limiting them to “lower-quality” boxed wines. Also, if you fill this up with vodka, you’ll be carrying around a regular old bag-o-death. With this purse comes great responsibility.
The Winerack is a sports bra with a hidden secret: booze. It’s available in Small and Medium to better coordinate with the size or your rack — or your drinking habit. Hey, Winerack, what about Large and Extra Large?
The official product description reads like the drunken spew of a group of frat-boys — the below description has not been edited:

This product also has one of the best Amazon reviews of all time.
This is the wine purse’s masculine counterpart. I can only imagine this product would only appeal to men, because on women this would look like the 80-Ounce Disappearing Baby Belly.
This product description is another un-edited winner:

Sneaky Shorts look both secret agent and like something that would be sold at Spencer’s Gifts. I can’t figure out how it actually works, and Sneaky Shorts isn’t helping:
The Sneaky Shorts are wearable, concealable, flexible beverage holders to carry and dispense your favorite drink at any event. The Sneaky Shorts patent pending Stay Thin technology ensures that the shorts do not buldge when filled with liquid. They hold 24oz (2 beers) and have an integrated adjustable belt. The Sneaky shorts are reusable and easy to refill and clean. The dual hoses can be cut to any length to fit you perfectly. One-size-fits-most with the long adjustable belt.Here’s how it works:
…but you’ll never find out how it works. Sneaky Shorts leaves you hanging. I imagine it goes something like this:
For everyone else…the Nalgene Bottle
I suspect (I hope?) that these products are all intended as gag gifts. If you really wanted to carry your bag-o-wine in a purse, you could just take a bag-o-wine and put it in a cheap purse or reusable shopping bag, cut a hole in the corner, and save $65.
Besides, the best way to bring wine somewhere where you shouldn’t bring wine is in a 1L Nalgene bottle. Use a dark red or opaque bottle and no one will be able to tell if you’re carrying red wine or iced tea. It’s not great for carbonated beverages, but it’s easier to clean than a tube. Plus, carrying a Nalgene makes you look outdoorsy. “Problem” solved.
