We can’t get over glass as being the best material to smoke out of. Seeing the smoke accumulate and providing the purest flavour, we like seeing silicone bongs incorporate glass into their design.       

The Horn does this well and gives you a great glass to silicone ratio. It's still not quite as durable as the other options, but of course carries that shock resistance nonetheless. At $35 or less with discounts, it’s a pretty good portable piece for the cost. The Waxmaid Horn is definitely one of our favourites!.

What we love!
  •       Lots of glass
  •       Small
  •       Great flavour

Looking for the best of both worlds? Look no further! Photo: @GrassCity

We digress; this bong might be more glass than it is silicone, but you still get the protective aspects from the silicone enclosing the glass. For that clean, unaltered taste and the nice look that glass presents, this is likely your best bet at $75. it may not be the cheapest rig we’ve ever seen but we don’t find too many silicone/glass hybrids at this price point and thus not much competition.

Bring your indestructible bong anywhere with you, including seaside! Photo: @waxmaidstore

For the best blend between flavour and durability, glass/silicone hybrids like this Waxmaid Pagoda are our favorite. Not quite as durable as fully acrylic or silicone solutions, it’ll still be much more likely to survive a fall than a pure glass rig.

We couldn’t find any glass/silicone hybrids for less than the $25 Pagoda, which features a small window where you can see your smoke accumulate. This particular window is on the small side, but you'll still get to admire the smoke as it curls around in the bowl, which we love!

What we love!

  •       Compact
  •       Glass window
  •       Inexpensive
  •       Good airflow


Other tips and tricks for buying a silicone or acrylic bong!

Ensure your bubbler has a glass bowl and downstem! The heat from your lighter can easily melt plastic and a silicone bowl, which can expose you to severe health risks. Is silicone safe, and is silicone toxic if exposed to heat though? The answer is yes, it is safe, as long as long as it’s not subjected to high heat for longer than a couple of seconds!

It’s hard to find the silicone melting point for any particular silicone pipe, but having a maximum temperature of 300°C depending on the quality of silicone, it should be safe against short term exposure to lighters or torches.

It’s also worth mentioning a silicone spoon pipe makes for a great portable option when it’s not feasible to carry a rubber bong around with you. Eyce makes a solid silicone smoking pipe if you want to be ultra-portable.

Cleaning an acrylic and silicone bong is also a different process. Thankfully resin and grime comes off of silicone much easier than glass and a warm water/salt combination should do the trick. Acrylic on the other hand is a different story.

While you may use isopropyl alcohol to clean a glass bong, doing the same in acrylic will surely lead to disaster. Use a specially designed acrylic cleaner in conjunction with warm water and salt to get rid of any build-up and grime.Often times acrylic and silicone bubblers are much cheaper than their glass counterparts with the added bonus of durability and portability.  Choosing the right bubbler or pipe for you is oftentimes a hard decision. Find out if you’d benefit more from a portable piece or if you want something beefier that can give you those monster hits.

Always opt for a bubbler that uses glass or metal for the bowl/down stem, as plastics and silicone can melt and produce toxic fumes. Safety first! As long as you follow these instructions, any one of the awesome bongs on this list will last a long time, ensuring you'll enjoy your tokes worry-free!
