A 10 cent Ziploc bag does me just fine for short term storage. And I can drop it, sit on it or toss it like a frisbee.

I like the thing but wow that's pretty spendy for a glorified tobacco tin. If I were a rich man I'd have about a dozen of those things for sure.

I'm tired of the baggy thing and have gone on to re-using empty 50g tins when I'm on the go. I never did care much for pouches either since I prefer to take several blends with me if I go away for a weekend.

I wonder if those little single-serve side dish containers they use at KFC would work? They're smaller and lighter and seal pretty well. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Thankfully I can easily get by with my trusty roll-up. (I had a great Dunhill roll-up [the lining is different], but it got swiped off the seat of my car in front of the St. Regis in New York.)

I'm not familiar with the side dish containers of which you speak. I've been doing some surfing trying find something similar to the expensive container this thread is about. I've found some screw top aluminum cans, which may or may not hold enough tobacco, but nothing nearly like it.

I have a few of those at home that I re-use for misc hardware storage on the workbench.   They all have pinholes in the top lid though, I assume for venting steam.   Not ideal for 'baccy, but probably OK for a day or two .   I'd still prefer the Ziploc bags as I can carry in my pocket or even my small, soft-side pipe case.

The first thing that comes to mind when looking at this product, is that it is constructed of aluminum. I have worked with aluminum for years as a tig welder, and I can tell you that aluminum shows dents and dings very easily.

Also, anodizing will wear off, when slipping an anodized product in and out of a pocket or something similar.


Another thing that comes to mind, is that I have around 6 or 7 original baccyflaps in my vintage tobacciania collection, and some of them I paid much less than $89 for. For around the same price range you could have an original if you are diligent in watching the online auctions.


While it is cool that someone has decided to bring the baccyflap back into production, IMO it would be much better if it were made from a similar material to the original.
