It used to be that you could take as much alcohol as you wanted on the plane in your carry-on luggage, meaning you could take full advantage of that duty-free store or the beautiful wineries you visited during your travels. Well, since the relatively new TSA liquid regulations were set in place, your wine can no longer come with you on the plane. We know, it’s a terribly sad story. Luckily someone has realized the importance of being able to bring home several bottles of wine after a trip and invented the JetBag ($15 for 3), which will help you protect bottles of wine in your checked luggage. Theoretically, checking your wine bottles in your regular luggage shouldn’t be a problem, but with bags getting thrown around at the airport and jostled during flights, there’s always a chance you will open your suitcase to find clothes soaked in that fine Pinot Noir you picked up. The JetBag aims to avoid that terrible occurrence by providing padded protection for your wine as well as a sealed, absorbent bag just in case a bottle does break. The bag uses the same material as baby diapers to pad your wine bottle and absorb the full contents of the bottle should it break and spill. If no breakage occurs while in flight, you can use your JetBags over and over again. We’ll take three, please.
