Nothing could go wrong, when you’re driving along with your friend, Henry Wong, listening to a favorite song, but then you reach for your bong… and it goes flying out the window and hits a tree, smashing into a gazillion pieces – unless it’s an acrylic bong! Okay, maybe that’s a far-fetched scenario – and you probably shouldn’t toke and drive, but the point is acrylic or plastic bongs are tough!
Not only do acrylic bongs tend to be hardy, but they generally come in bright colors, interesting shapes, are comparatively inexpensive as opposed to glass bong sets, and they make excellent water pipes for traveling. The downstems and bong bowl pieces of plastic bongs tend to be fashioned from glass, metal or heat-resistant plastic. Acrylic bongs or water pipes tend to make excellent bongs for newbie stoners because they are pretty indestructible, easy to clean with a little 91% isopropyl rubbing alcohol, and are reliable but cheap bongs.
Functionally, acrylic bongs tend to work exactly the same as bongs made from glass or metal. Essentially, a bong - or water pipe, consists of a bong bowl – or slide, a stem, the water chamber and the mouthpiece. And taking a blast from a bong is generally the same from a basic mini bong all the way up to a modular bong like the STAX system with all kinds of extra percolators, chillers, and ash catchers: you add water to your bong’s chamber or chambers, you put some marijuana herb in the bowl, you light your weed in the bowl while inhaling from the mouthpiece as you see your bong chamber fill up with smoke, then you remove the slide bowl piece to inhale all of the smoke through the mouthpiece. Some mouthpieces have a pinched area inside so you can drop down ice cubes for extra cooling of the smoke. Whether it’s one of the best acrylic bongs or one of the cheap acrylic bongs, whatever the size or basic configuration, the operation is about the same.
We’re gonna look at a number of different plastic bongs, from acrylic mini bongs up to 3 foot or four foot acrylic bongs, and lots of things in between!
Talk about a two-fer – this is a both a recliner and a bubble bong joined together into two brightly-colored chambers for a way cooler, extra-smooth smoke; your hits are silky because the smoke has to travel further from the bowl to your lungs with plenty of distance to cool, and pass through water to filter out particulates.
Both the 291mm/11 ½-inch tubular recliner section and the 171mm/6 ¾-inch round bubble chamber sit on sturdy, thick rubber bases, connected together by two tubes that run between them – bridges between bongs. Sure, it’s a bit different-looking, but this double-chambered plastic bong really gives a good blast of refined weed smoke!
As per usual with acrylic bongs, this one has a metal bong bowl and stem. The mouthpiece is what they call a bent or angled mouthpiece that makes it easier and more natural to hit from; when you take your hit you just light the bowl on the far side of the round bubble chamber, let the chambers begin to fill with smoke, pull the metal slider and suck in some good ganja air!
You can purchase this fine Acrylic 2-Chamber Recliner and Bubble Bong piece for the low-low price of $29.99, plus tax and shipping, and if you order before midnight tonight then you’ll have your new bong that much sooner!

Mini Acrylic Bongs and Small Acrylic Bongs
Headway 6" Acrylic Bong- $14.00
6 inches is pretty small, in fact, you might even call it ‘mini’; the Headway 6-Inch Acrylic Bong is the very definition of what a mini bong is: under a half a foot but fully functional as a water pipe. A small, plastic bong is portable enough and durable enough to toss into your car on the way to a friend’s house - or maybe en route to the beach or a shady park in warmer weather months.
Based in New Hampshire, USA, Headway Acrylics has been a leading manufacturer of high-quality acrylic smoking accessories for nearly 20 years. So, you can rest assured that they know what they are doing when it comes to creating and cranking out cool and capable plastic water pipes.
This totally tubular-shaped acrylic bong from Headway measures 6 inches tall and 2 inches around, with a metal 9mm pull slide/bong bowl. It’s a good-sized bowl that will afford you some good-sized hits, but if you prefer you can replace it with a same-sized glass bowl – but you’d have to buy that yourself. Some people don’t like the metallic aftertaste of using a metal bowl slide, and prefer smoother hits with a glass version.
Headway’s 6-inch acrylic bong comes in an array of different colors – such as black, blue, green, purple, red, or white - and is adorned with the ‘flaming skulls’ Headway decal; but the decal design changes from time to time, so it may not match exactly the one seen in the image. You can completely disassemble this plastic bong for easy cleaning with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
If you want to own the Headway tubular mini bong for yourself, the price is $14.00 – which you can pay upfront, or in 5 interest-free payments of $2.80; either way you get completely free shipping.
What we love!
- 6-inch tall, 2-inch round mini bong

2-Hoser Sphere Acrylic Bong - £13.35 GBP/$17.46 USD
Personally, we like the red, yellow and green Rasta colors, ya mon – and this is one banging bong with two metal-tipped hoses to share a blast of the ganja weed with a friend or significant other. Think of it as double the pleasure, double the fun of your conventional acrylic mini bong! Irie-irie!
Atop the sphere is a big bong bowl for burning your green goodness, and that is also where your two hoses are rubber-grommeted into the globular water chamber. You just open it up, add water, spark the bowl and then you and a friend, relative or whomever are having your own reggae weed jam! You could smoke alone, sure, but with two mouthpieces, why would you?
The rubber bottom of the ball-shaped bong makes for good solid stability; and the round acrylic body is pretty easy to clean and maintain with a little isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
You can buy this 19 cm/7½-inch high 2-Hoser Sphere Acrylic Bong for $17.46 USD or £13.35 in GBP.
What we love!
- Cool red, yellow and green Rasta colors
- Spherical bong with a good, stable rubber base
- Two metal-tipped hoses for sharing a hit with someone else
- Big bong bowl
- Round acrylic body is pretty easy to clean and maintain
- 19 cm/7 ½-inches high
Planet X The Flux Black Mini Acrylic - $17.95
They say good things come in small packages, and a nearly-indestructible high-grade plastic mini bong that is compact enough to be easily portable is a very good thing! The Flux Acrylic Mini Bong is a 160mm/6 1/3-inch tall bong that, though small in stature, offers up a respectably massive hit.
Featuring a removable stem and cone, or bong bowl, with mesh screen and available in different semitransparent colors – such as this black one, plus blue, green, pink or yellow; this powerful little plastic bong looks good and hits rather smoothly. The Planet X Flux Bong has a metal mouthpiece diameter of 23mm, or 9/10ths of an inch and a body, or base, that is 50mm or just under two inches around. And the custom-sized silicone grommet built into the base keeps the smoke in your water chamber and not wastefully leaking out.
If you haven’t tried smoking down on an acrylic bong, the Planet X The Flux Black Mini Acrylic might be a good start, because it’s tough enough to take some roughness and not break; and its color scheme is bright and colorful – except maybe the black, which is more of a see-thru smoky color. If you decide to buy it then your cost is $17.95 USD plus shipping and taxes.
What we love!
- 160mm/6 1/3-inch tall mini bong
- Available in different semitransparent colors – such as black, blue, green, pink or yellow
- Metal mouthpiece diameter of 23mm, or 9/10ths of an inch
- Base is 50mm or just under two inches around
Best Acrylic Bongs
UPC - Acrylic Skull Bong 8'' - 12'' - $24.99
You’d have to be a numbskull to not find this cute acrylic skull bong cool; skulls and bongs just kinda go together – see the flaming skull logo on one of the bongs above for example. Skulls are cool and bongs are cool, so together they’re just cooler!
Regardless of its shape – which we have established is cool – this colorful cranium cannabis smoke cooling and smoothing plastic bong is available in either 8-inch or 12-inch sizes; and comes in a collection of colors like green, purple, red, yellow, and blue. Whether you go with the longer or the shorter model, each comes with an aluminum downstem with a bowl atop to pack your weed into.
The macabre yet funky skull is the water chamber of the wacky water pipe, crafted from American-made hard acrylic. You could beat this thing against your own skull and it would not be harmed; your own skull we can’t speak for, but the bong would survive.
Sometimes a basic bong is the best acrylic bong, just add water and weed and blaze away! If you look cool doing so, so much the better!
Dig up your own acrylic skull bong for $24.99, plus a little tax and shipping.
What we love!
- Available in either 8-inch or 12-inch sizes
- Durable American-made hard acrylic
- Assorted colors like green, purple, red, yellow, and blue
- Each comes with an aluminum downstem with a bowl atop
The Bukket - $21.95
At first glance, you may wonder just what this contraption is; it looks a bit like a cross between an accordion and the kind of flexible tubing that connects your clothes dryer to the outside vent in the wall! But what this marvelous tube snake thingy really exactly is would be a waterless gravity bong! You may say, ‘[insert expletive phrase that rhymes with Bukket], I can’t hit from that refugee from a Slinky farm (granted the springy toy that walks down stairs doesn’t come from farms, but that is entirely beside the point)’! You can for sure take hits from the Bukket, and once you try this stretchy take on a bucket bong, you’ll be glad that you did!
And, because it folds up or accordions down to a smaller size, it’s pretty portable; at 91mm, or 3 ½ inches in diameter, not quite pocket-sized - unless you have big pockets like in a jacket or coat, but it will fit in your purse, backpack or the glovebox in your car! When it is fully extended, the Bukket reaches about 401mm, nearly 16 inches!
Normally a gravity bong or bucket bong is a way of consuming weed that involves the using of a couple of plastic bottles, which funnel smoke through water before you breathe it in. All you really have to do is submerge a small bottle with a bowl of cannabis on top into a larger plastic bottle or bucket filled with water. Now, the Bukket is totally water-free, instead using unique billows – the accordion-like part - to cool your hit down. Though they call these things ‘gravity bongs’ they actually use air pressure to push big amounts of smoke or vapor up into your mouth and lungs.
Another bit of coolness about the Bukket plastic bong is that it can be washed in any dishwasher, so that makes your life a little easier!
If you’d like to own your own award-winning (2001 High Times Cup in Amsterdam) Bukket ‘gravity bong’ then $21.95 plus tax and shipping is all that it will cost you.
What we love!
- Plastic gravity bong
- Portable – easily fits into a purse or backpack
- 91mm/3 ½ inches in diameter
- Fully extends to 401mm, nearly 16 inches
- 2001 High Times Cup Award in Amsterdam
AK47 - $39.99
Glass bongs aren’t the only ones with modules and cool accessories, acrylics get some bling, too – there are acrylics bongs with a percolator or like this one, the AK47, that has its own ash catcher. See, acrylic bongs can be fancy, too!
This is also an acrylic ice bong because it has an ice twist; so, it’s even cooler than it was even a second ago – you know, because ice is cool! Anyway, some people go off on the name, AK47, and that it’s named after a gun - but even if you don’t care much about that, it’s still a really good straight cylindrical bong because ice cubes stacked in the mouthpiece allow for a cooler, smoother hit! Not bad, huh?
And the ash catcher chamber further reduces harsh particulates in the pot smoke for silkier tokes. Yet another bonus!
Finally, the standard interchangeable parts like the bong bowl and downstem, base and grommets can be replaced with spare parts; replace enough of them and you will literally have another entire bong!
This versatile, plastic 491mm/19-inch tall water pipe is made by Killer Bongs, renowned for innovative and unusual but reliable bongs – the AK47 is an example of why they are so highly regarded! To get your own will cost you $39.99, plus some tax and shipping.
What we love!
- AK47 has its own ash catcher - reduces harsh particulates in the pot smoke

Acrylic Pistol Grip Bong - $14.99
It makes sense to follow up the AK47 plastic bong above with a pistol grip acrylic bong; but this again isn’t so much about guns as it is about having an ergonomic grip for your bong body, or water chamber, making it more comfortable to use and much harder to drop. Taking a hit from this handy plastic bong will maybe help you get a grip on life!
Molded from 100% acrylic, this lightweight water pipe is tough enough that you can treat it rough, or at least you won't have to worry so much about it getting damaged while transporting it in your car or when you toss it into the closet or cupboard for storage!
The 291 mm/11 ¾-inch acrylic pistol grip bong features an angled shaft for further comfort and ease of hitting off from it. Hold with one hand, light and pull with the other – couldn’t be much simpler or easier!
It comes with a female-ended metal bowl and downstem. Elsewise it is all plastic; and this acrylic bong is machine washable – which makes keeping it spiffy clean a breeze!
You’ve got some color options to choose from: Rasta (red, yellow, white), orange/yellow, green/yellow, yellow/blue, yellow/red, purple/blue, green/blue and red/blue. Always nice to have options!
Get your hand on one for $14.99, with the usual tax and shipping charges.

Acrylic Bong with Bent Tube | Various Colors - £23.56 GBP/$31.25 USD
Normally, we prefer substance over style – but this bright, colorful bong is both dazzling and dependable! It’s got flash, it’s got pizzazz, this bong will get you noticed! And you and your bong buddies can reliably get some nice, smooth rips from this eye-popping plastic piece!
This acrylic bong has a carb hole placed in one side that you can place your thumb over while taking a hit and release just before you’re done inhaling, so that you clear all the smoke from the water chamber. Thus, none of the smoke gets wasted – but, after a few hits, you do! All of the cannabinoid goodness goes into your mouth and lungs, not leaked into the air and lost.
The 45mm/1 ¾-inch diameter mouthpiece tube is slightly bent backwards, enabling you to use it in a more comfortable, laid-back position. So, you could recline in your favorite chair, sitting back, relaxing and enjoying some sweet hits from this really stunning water pipe.
Like any acrylic bong, this 27cm/10.6-inch-tall bent tube is nearly indestructible, simple to use, fairly effortless to keep clean and portable. You don’t have to worry much about breakage with an acrylic bong; sure, you could dent it, but it would take a lot - and then it would still be usable as long as there were no holes for leaks. And toking from it is as easy as adding water to the chamber and marijuana to the bowl, and then sparking up. When you’re done hitting, the plastic bong can be disassembled for some rinsing out with rubbing alcohol and then tossed into a dishwasher or a dishpan full of suds.
The metal downstem and bowl, the mouthpiece ring, rubber grommet and base are pretty standard parts on an acrylic bong - a simple but highly effective design.
You can order this acrylic bong for $31.25 USD, or £23.56 GBP, and it will come delivered in a random variety of colors, as available, but they all look as just as colorfully spectacular as the picture.

Acrylic Ice Bong with Multicolored Striped Design - £19.63 GBP/$26.11 USD
If you want some seriously polar pulls from a bong, then you gotta get an acrylic ice bong! Ice bongs are regular bongs that have a pinched section or bumps on the inside of the neck of the mouthpiece so that you can drop some ice cubes down inside and thereby cool the filtered marijuana smoke before it hits your mouth and lungs.
Ice bongs are mostly tubular bongs because they work so well when it comes to placing the ice, and the frozen water is what enables you to enjoy a cooler, smoother toke.
Bongs made from acrylic are virtually unbreakable and generally lightweight. This acrylic ice bong has both durability and cooling power going for it, as well as a stylish striped design with alternating colored and clear vertical sections. The colored striped sections are delivered in random colors, so you can’t really choose the color you want, but if you’re chill then it’s an easy and effective way to get better bong blasts!
The weed you are going to blaze from your plastic bong gets packed into a metal bowl that is attached to the metal downstem; a rubber grommet keeps the downstem and bong securely fastened together. This artistic acrylic ice bong also features a carb hole, so when you take a rip from this kind of bong you cover the hole with your finger while inhaling and once the chamber is full of smoke you move your finger and the influx of air mixes with the weedy smoke as you draw it in.
This 30cm/11.8-inch tall by 45mm/1 ¾-inch diameter ice-boosted water bong has a stable square foot at the bottom, so there’s not much chance of it tipping over and ruining your date, your friendly get-together for some toking down, or even your solo session.
Pull out your plastic money and you can purchase this powerful, pinched-neck ice bong for yourself personally for the price of $26.11 USD/£19.63 GBP plus tax and postage!

- Made from acrylic, so the bong is virtually unbreakable and lightweight
- Alternating clear and colored vertical stripes

Cheap Acrylic Bongs
Acrylic Bong 8" X 1" - $5.00
When you’re shopping for a cheap acrylic bong, the less expensive it is, the more basic it is going to be. That’s how things generally work, whether it’s bongs, cars, houses, or dating – expensive things may be fancier, but less costly options will more or less get the job done without a lot of razzle-dazzle!
Sometimes, an acrylic bong is an acrylic bong is an acrylic bong, or plastic water pipe! This 8-inch high, 1-inch diameter bong does what you’d expect a bong to do: give you some water filtration and cooling for your weed smoke. It’s lightweight, sturdy, and pretty easy to clean by hand with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol or in a dishwashing machine – it is an acrylic bong stripped of any extras, just as basic as you please!
All you gotta do is fill it with enough water to cover the end of the downstem and then pack the metal bowl with some ganja weed and light it to blaze away! No fuss, no muss!
And the best part is it’s so inexpensive – just five bucks! Well, $5 plus tax and shipping, but that’s still dirt cheap!
What we love!
- Basic 8-inch tall, 1-inch diameter plastic water pipe
- Lightweight, sturdy acrylic
- Easy to clean by hand with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol or in a dishwashing machine
- Easy to toke from, just add water and weed to blaze away
- So inexpensive – just five bucks!
Though it can be said that one cheap acrylic bong is just like another, and in many ways that is true, once in a while a bong comes along that is a little different, a bong that has something a little extra and this acrylic bong is it! What sets it apart? Because it’s available in assorted colors? No, that’s not it! It is different because it has a handle on the bong bowl pull! ‘That’s it?’ you ask. Have you ever burned your fingers on hot metal? Hurts! Metal bong slides can get really hot with repeated use. So, yeah, having a handle when you pull the bowl for your rip is pretty nice!
Yes, this 8-inch by X 1 ½-inch acrylic bong comes with its own pull-out bowl handle, but it’s also a prime example of a simple but efficient bong that gives you a lot of value for only a little money! Just like our previous example, this is so simple and easy to use by just loading in some water, then packing pot in the bowl and lighting it up! Percs and ash catchers and extra chambers are great, but when you just want a fast hit in a reliable bong, then this is a good bong to grab!
When the plastic bong’s water chamber turns nasty – and it will happen – then empty out the stinky water, pour in some 91% rubbing alcohol, maybe add some coarse salt like sea salt and shake it up for a bit, then rinse the whole thing out and you are good to go. Metal parts can be soaked in alcohol overnight. Few things that you have to clean are that effortless!
So, you have a simple but serviceable bong that comes with a handle on the pull slide, that is easy to use and pretty painless to clean and best of all it will only cost you $9.00 plus tax and shipping!
What we love!

- Only costs $9.00!
Acrylic Bubble Base Water Pipe Colored 18cm - £11.77 GBP/$15.64 USD
Rounding out our selection of cheap bongs is this lovely little bubble base bong with Rasta yellow, orange and white shading – kind of a cute acrylic bong, don’t you think? Cute acrylics notwithstanding, you want a bong that does more than look good, you want it to hit as good as it looks!
This plastic water pipe proves, as did the previous two, that simplicity works; there are modular bongs like the STAX system that have all kinds of fancy gizmos lined up so that they filter, chill, catch ash and do some wonderful smoothing of your weed hit, but those extras aren’t always necessary. For a quick hit grabbing a plastic bong like this one is oh-so-handy – just add water, some weed and spark it!
This 18cm/7.1-inch-high bubble base design bong features molded intertwined bands circling the 38mm/1 ½-inch diameter globe-shaped base; these bands are both decorative and practical because they can help you get a better grip on the base.
The blended colors, in this case Rasta, may vary from the photo – so, your bong may not look the same as the picture when it arrives – but it will hit phenomenally, regardless of the colors! And despite any changes in the coloring, the base and the mouthpiece are black.
As is typical of acrylic bongs, this bubble base bong comes with a bowl and downstem made of durable, easy-to-clean metal.
You won’t bust your budget ordering this cute acrylic, because it’s just £11.77 GBP or $15.64 USD.
What we love!

Headway 14" Double Bubble Bong - $32.97
Do you know what’s even better than a bubble bong? A double bubble bong, quite obviously! With plastic bongs - or any bong, really – more space means more cooling and filtration and so adding a second bubble gives you room for just that!
Once again we have a lightweight, durable and portable bong design that is easy to handle, able to take some abuse without breaking and can be tossed in the back seat of your car for a weedy road trip! Glass bongs are heavier, potentially more fragile, and kinda cumbersome to lug around.
Headway’s 14-inch/355mm by 2-inch/50mm acrylic double bubble bongs include a removable plastic downstem that is securely held in place by an airtight rubber grommet with a metal pull-out bowl that even has a handle, and a flared base for stability. The mouthpiece is covered with black rubber for comfort when you press your face into it and take your hit.
The whole shebang can be disassembled for easy cleaning – by hand or by dishwasher.
Headway tubes are inexpensive and come in a variety of colors. Now, there is a possibility that there will be some changes in the Headway flaming skull logo or the general shape of the bong or maybe the particular colors because printed items and plastic molds are easy to change – as opposed to glass bongs and etched logos – but the overall double bubble configuration will remain the same.
Double up with a friend or significant other and bong rip away on your own Headway 14-inch Double Bubble Bong for $32.97 - or 4 interest-free payments of $8.24 apiece!

Big Bad Bongs – 3 foot Acrylic Bongs, 4 Foot Acrylic Bongs and Bigger
At first glance, this series of bigger bongs looks like they were made for giraffes! The whole idea is that with a longer bong, say 4 to 6 feet tall, you can hit standing up versus sitting down. As to why that is desirable, we can’t really say – but they are pretty popular, best-sellers in fact, at the Smokea website. Just be thankful that they stopped making them at 6 feet because 7 or 8 feet would just be excessive!
Sure, it’s probably fun at parties, but you’re gonna need a garden hose to add water to the 48-inch (4ft), 60-inch (5ft) and 72-inch (6ft) versions of this towering acrylic bong; nobody has sinks that deep! At least the 36-inch ‘smallest size’ of the Headway Big Boy Acrylic Bong can be watered in the bath tub.
Fortunately, the Big Boy Bong series features a raised pull slide with a long hose all the way to the bottom so that any size bong can be used by a single person – your life is sad if you’re hitting on a 6ft bong solo, but it can be done. Granted, you don’t strictly need a helpful friend to light the bowl for you, it’s easily reached, but it would be more social with a pothead pal.
These made-in-the-USA skyscraper bongs come with a 9mm joint and include a metal pull slide.
The Headway Big Boy Acrylic Bongs are available in several colors; and they offer 3ft, 4ft, 5ft and nose-bleeding 6-foot versions, as we mentioned. Regardless of height, all the Headway Big Boy plastic bongs are 2 inches in diameter.
As you might suspect, the price per bong depends on its size with the 36-inch model retailing for $62, the 48-inch for $68, the 60-inch for $78, and the 72-inch for $84. All of the price points allow you to make 5 monthly payments until paid off. Shipping is free.

Glass bongs are classy, to be sure, but nothing beats the inexpensive price, practical indestructibility and portability of a plastic bong! We’ve shown you some cute acrylics, we’ve noted a few mini acrylic bongs, as well as some enormous 3 foot and 4 foot and even bigger bongs, we’ve even showcased some of the cheapest of the cheap acrylic bongs, and we’ve given you a look at some of the best acrylic bongs out there. The best acrylic for you, however, is the one that fits your budget while meeting your personal needs.
Pretty much all of the plastic bongs there are will have a metal bowl slide, some also have a metal downstem. All the bongs we showcased are durable acrylic, so they won’t break easily. And generally, all of the bongs can be disassembled and washed in a dishwasher or by hand with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Some of the bongs are acrylic ice bongs, with a twist in the mouthpiece tube or ice catcher knobs on the inside of the mouthpiece, so that you can drop in ice cubes for additional cooling. Another thing that they all have in common is a less expensive price than comparable glass bongs and water pipes.
Acrylic water bongs are an affordable and practical alternative to heaver, more fragile and less portable glass pieces and practical for casual smoke sessions or ripping on the run. You can take them anywhere; all you need to use them is some water and a supply of weed. Even if you have a collection of glass bongs, you should have one or two plastic bongs on hand for tossing into your car for a righteously weedy road trip (just don’t toke and drive) or maybe to have around for a house party with your raucous stoner crew so they don’t accidentally destroy your rig. There are so many practical reasons to pick up a plastic bong to have around: portability, affordability, indestructibility, ease of cleaning and price. Really, when it comes to acrylic bongs, what’s not to love?
