    For all the different events and shares and hotel rooms I always find myself bringing at least a couple snifters but since they are glass they are not the easiest to transport. I put each one in a thick sock and then in a small box with some packing materials and leave that in my truck. Anybody else have "travel glassware" or a better way of doing it? Nothing worse than bringing a few great beers to a friends house and he pulls out the giant beer mugs or plastic cups. lol

    twice i have ordered a case of mini snifters from elysian (those pumpkin minis are the best) so i use the case boxes when going to tastings and bringing a lot of glasses. if traveling with just one or two, i use the cases that the utopias glasses came in. mini snifters fit in those nicely (1 per).

    I picked up a 4-pack of Govino wine glasses at Total Wine for $12 ... they are AWESOME ... already used a few times for camping and they will accompany me on all future travels ... highly recommend -> http://govinowine.com/

    You just keep them in the box you bought them in?

    I went a little overboard and basically bought a $25 case to protect a $2 snifter :stuck_out_tongue:

    Pelican 1150

    Did you cut the inserts yourself? That's legit cool and hilarious to me at the same time. $25 seems like a good deal for something that looks that high quality.

    It's Pelican's patent foam called "Pick N Pluck". It was worth it to me cause everything I put them in before wouldn't last like a box getting wet from cleaning them and not drying them out perfectly or wouldn't keep them from breaking if I pack them in let's say, luggage.

    When I travel it's usually alone so I just need one of the glasses and it get's thrown into my carry-on bag in a zip lock bag.

    I have a bunch of cheap, disposable snifters. They are called Dixie cups.
