Who doesn’t want wine glasses that don’t break while using them?
These thick silicone glasses came stuck together and pressed inwards (to save space I assume) – they took no time to unstick them and form them back into appropriate glass shapes.
The glasses do not appear perfectly symmetrical, and do tend to attract dirt, dog hair, everything else quite easily.
For camping or a romantic picnic while hiking or biking, these are fabulous due to the fact that they are easily collapsible and you do not have to worry about them breaking.
For home…they are not as fancy as I would like them to be, and I would not use them to serve drinks to guests - they are more appropriate for outdoor and rustic settings.
The seal on the sides of the glass are quite evident as well.
Make sure you do NOT squeeze the glass while drinking, or it will spurt out of it, causing a mess.
Cleaning wise, they easily come clean with soap and water, but get that sticky feeling back. I find it takes a few days sitting and drying before the sticky feeling goes away.
They are a bit big for my hands, but perfect for Husband’s hands.
For the outdoorsman, these are a great addition for your backpack or camping gear box.

Definitely be aware before buying these that they are Semi-flexible silicone that will move when squeezing or drinking. That might seem crazy, but keep in mind that these are designed for a very specific situation and to that end they work beautifully! For camping, these glasses have many advantages. The flexibility means you can squash them flat in a pack until you need them, saving precious space. This is especially handy for backpackers or anyone who likes to travel light!
It can be a bit tricky at first figuring out how to drink without squeezing them, especially if you're a firm gripper, but thanks to the thickness of the silicone, you'll pick it up quickly! The base of the glass is a stiffer/thicker silicone so these cups won't wobble or fall over when on grass or uneven surfaces. They're perfect for camping trips, but have an unexpected second use too. They're wonderful for filling with deserts or juice and freezing. With summer coming up I can see I'll get a lot of use out of these.
- Dishwasher safe
- Flexible for easy storage.
- Sit steadily on uneven ground.
- Hold a good amount of liquid.
- Unbreakable for those times when you need to give the clumsy (read: Drunk) friend a drink.
- Kids and adults can laugh at the experience of drinking from a non solid glass!
- Tricky to drink from on first try.
Overall, a great set of flexible glasses for camping or freezer use. There's no strange taste and they hold a good amount. Would definitely recommend!
