We all know about the difficulties of packing for a picnic or camoing trip, and silicone wine glasses offer several benefits over traditional glass or plastic wine glasses, particularly in the context of camping, picnics, home use (and even on a kayaking trip like in our picture above!). Here we'll check out these amazing advantages and why these wonderfully coloured and practically unbreakable pieces should become a permanent fixture in your glamping or camping kit.
1. Durability for Outdoor Adventures
- Break-resistant: Silicone wine glasses are virtually unbreakable, making them an excellent choice for outdoor activities like camping and picnics where the fragility of glass can be a concern.
- Ideal for Rough Terrain: Their durability ensures they can withstand the rigors of rough terrains and outdoor environments, whether sitting in the back of the car or around the camp table or picnic mat.
2. Portability and Space-Saving Design
- Lightweight: Silicone glasses, whether goblet or champagne flute or wine glass versions are incredibly lightweight, making them easy to carry for travel and outdoor adventures.
- Collapsible or Stackable: Silicone wine glasses are soft bodied and are designed to collapse against each other, maximising space efficiency in your car, backpack or picnic basket.
3. Safety for On-the-Go Enjoyment
- Non-Toxic Material: Food-safe Silicone is free from harmful chemicals, providing a safer option compared to many plastics for on-the-go use, and it stays anti-bacterial throughout its life.
- No Sharp Edges: Unlike glass, there are no sharp edges if a silicone wine glass is damaged, ensuring safety during transportation or in a little accident on a picnic blanket.
4. Durability for Outdoor Adventures
- Suitable for Hot and Cold Beverages: Silicone can withstand a range of temperatures, making it ideal for enjoying both hot and cold beverages during your travels, and without leaching any harmful chemicals into your drinks.
- Perfect for Various Climates: Whether you're sipping a warm beverage by the campfire or enjoying a chilled drink on a hot day, silicone wine glasses adapt to diverse weather conditions through the ability to handle hot or cold.
