Being a proud stoner doesn’t always mean being a loud stoner. Whether your workplace has strict rules against cannabis, you want to avoid family or colleagues who disapprove, or you don’t want to get pulled over with your car reeking of bud, smell-proof bags can help protect you and your weed.
Plus, smell-proof bags have other benefits besides concealing odors, including controlling moisture loss, maintaining potency and preventing others (especially children) from tampering with your stash.
Finding the right smell-proof bag can be a challenge, though, as there are tons of options on the market today. So we compiled a list of the best smell-proof bags on the market, and you can rest assured that your cannabis is stored safely and discreetly at all times.
Since 2000, Smelly Proof has been creating durable, reusable bags made from medical grade plastic. Now, it is one of the most well-known smell-proof bag companies on the market, available everywhere from local smoke shops to Walmart. It’s bags come in clear or black, and in almost every size imaginable (depending on how big your stash is). You can also buy them in bulk for a super affordable price.
Available in every size, design, and color, Skunk bags are extremely versatile. These bad boys are made using activated carbon technology which traps and neutralizes odors. They have a bag for every occasion, from smell-proof duffle bags to pocket-sized pouches — my personal favorite is the convenient 11-inch Mr. Slick bag. Next on my wishlist is the Hipster, a smell-proof fanny pack that comes in 10 different colors.
Known for their novelty, Stink Sack bags feature various clever designs and can hold one gram to one pound of weed. In addition to clear and black, you can find bags that look like credit cards, packs of bacon or even condoms. There’s even leopard, skull, and camo print designs, among many others. Stink Sack is the perfect gag gift for your favorite stoner friend with a sense of humor.
If you’re looking for an inconspicuous smell-proof bag, Level 1620 offers several clutches, crossbody bags, and fanny packs that look exactly like regular bags. Each carbon-lined bag features cool artistic designs and includes a combination lock to keep unwanted snoops out. These are ideal for holding your stash, smoking accessories and even your debit card and keys.
Funk Fighter’s bags are an awesome option for people who want to stash their bud and supplies together. They make no-frills carbon-lined black bags including a duffle bag, backpack, travel bag, and pocket bag. Though the size options and colors might seem limited, don’t be fooled — these are very versatile and completely odorless. They’re ideal if you like simple, sleek smoking accessories without the fuss.
For the stoner who is always on the move, RYOT has the perfect smell-proof bags and cases. The Roller Wallet, Hard Case, and PackRatz bags are some of their portable, weatherproof options that neutralize and trap odors. Though it doesn’t really qualify as a smell-proof bag, they also sell the Destroyer, a rugged steel box that is impervious to air, water, and rough jostling. This contraption is perfect for transporting your glass and other precious cargo.
Discreet Smoker has four different options on their site, including a backpack, stash box, soft case, and the very popular 11×9-inch bag. All of them feature a child-resistant combination lock and discreet black or gray exterior. The pouch is more affordable than many other carbon-infused fabric bags and is available on Amazon.
Interplanetary Development makes amazing products if you want a classic smell-proof bag for your dankest nugs. They’re made of heavy-duty black plastic and are sold individually or in quantities of 10 or 25 so you’ll always have one on hand. They also come in five sizes, perfect for carrying as little or as much as you need. If you want something discreet you can keep in your pocket or backpack, these are a no-brainer.
