You know those hoodies that use drawstrings that function as headphones, so you can just pop the strings in your ears to listen to your music? Yeah, they’re awesome. The Boozie, though, is even more awesome, because it cinches using sipping tubes, so you can get drunk covertly while looking like you’re just chewing on your hoodie’s drawstrings because you’re a nervous wreck.
Styled to look like a regular hoodie, there’s absolutely nothing about the garment that inspires suspicion. No bulges, no cheesy alcohol-themed graphics, and no indication that it’s being used to sneak in booze whatsoever. Well, except for the thicker drawstrings and the large, drip-free bite valve at each end, which, we guess, can be easily excused as a fashion thing when you want to sneak drinks in — something you can’t exactly claim when pulling out a wine flask from your pocket.
Each of the Boozie’s two sip tubes are connected to one of two bladders stealthily installed in the hood, so you can start sipping off the right bite valve as soon as the one on the left runs dry (or vice versa). Each bladder can hold up to 10 ounces of your favorite libations, giving you a full 20 ounces of alcoholic bliss to partake on any time you need a stiff drink. The bladders are made from reinforced BPA-free plastic, each of which can be removed for cleaning, same as any hydration pack.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Boozie. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $95.
