"why not just wrap this in your clothes if you're traveling" said nobody

And if the bottle breaks? all your clothes are ruined. With this, in theory it's all contained and the clothes are saved!

I have traveled many times with many different forms of liquids. Of all of them to leak into my clothes of the years, I would say wine did the most damage, so this is a great idea. Are these more absorbent then pampers?

I didn't realize how big these were until I saw this next to a person. Here is a good Demo Video. Unfortunately it doesn't show absorbency, but they're really big so I think these would *really* do the job well.

Anyone have experience with these? I fly to NYC a few times a year and go to Trader Joes to load up on the famous 2 buck chuck. Last time I bought a case, walked straight to UPS only to find out they can't ship wine. I could have walked to FedEx and said it was olive oil, but I didn't feel comfortable doing that and didn't think it would get to my house unbroken. Needless to say I stuff my wife's boots and luckily it all made it home. With these, could I put a bottle of wine in each one, stuff them all in the same bag with nothing else and they would be OK? (in a sense...)

It appears the "demonstration" of dropping the wine diaper from about 3 ft was performed with an empty bottle. It didn't break, but the product was not designed to carry empty bottles. Sort of silly. Aside from that, looks like a good product and not overly expensive.

I would gift this to my Mother, but I am fairly certain the name of this product would give her yet another excuse to think she can pour down bottle after bottle of wine and not have to ever get up from the table. We never need that episode to ever be repeated.

Yes, Just not for carry-on. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I'm 99% sure on this. This is for your Checked bags only.

Edit: Unless you're talking about the bags themselves. You can carry-on these bags all you like as long as you don't put wine bottles in them.

On Amazon there is a good video review of someone dumping a bottle of red wine into the wine diaper to test it out

No, you're right. There's a 3.4 oz limit, with a couple of exceptions. See link:

The 3.4 oz limit is for carry-ons, I meant to say.

I bought and use these to bring wine and beer home for the holidays- I didn't have any bottles break so I cannot attest to their absorption power- when I got them for more than double the price than offered here I found them to be a little on the cheap feeling side. It is essentially a plastic bag with diaper padding inside, and it closes with a press to close ziplock type seal- it didn't feel that padded to me so I used them in conjunction with bubble wrap, and they survived 3 flights across the country just fine. It gave me piece of mind which ultimately was worth it and at the price I am very close to being in for 3. I have used wine skins before which don't do any absorbing but are made of bubble wrap so I felt a bit more secure using those, but those are even pricier, and I do love the concept here that if it breaks you are covered.

After ordering the first time, but before receiving, I did recommend them to a coworker, who also successfully used them without bottles breaking in luggage.

It's very difficult to break a full bottle of wine. If your suitcase is full (to prevent too much jumping around) and you don't put bottles right next to each other, you're most likely ok anyway.

You can also save bubble wrap that you get from stuff you order online and use that.

Despite all that, I bought a bunch of these from woot a while ago. I use them all the time, and generally just put the bottle in and zip up the top and then throw it in the suitcase in between some clothing. I haven't had any problems and I do feel less nervous about breakage. The small amount of padding it provides is not enough to protect the bottle from a baseball bat, sledgehammer, or the hilt of a medieval broadsword, but your wine isn't likely to encounter those things in your suitcase. It does help, though, to provide some softness in between bottles in case a couple of them do come in contact with each other.

One additional step I do take when transporting open bottles of liquor (especially with twist-off tops) is taping the cap, then wrapping bubble wrap if available or newspaper around the cap and then taping that to the bottle as well. This leaves you extra covered.

Overall, it's about making you feel more secure in traveling with wine or other booze in your suitcase. Just because I haven't had any breakages or issues when traveling with these doesn't mean they can't arise. But I can tell you I feel more secure with my booze depends and that made the purchase worth it for me.

Previous woot: 3 pack $6.99 in pink vs. $7.99 for 6 tonight

Product website gives the hint. My guess is they want to sell it as the "Jet Bag" now, and want to clear out the bags with the old name:

Unforutnatley, if you're talking about checked baggage on an airplane, you're screwed.

I'm wondering if the bottle does indeed break...can it be squeezed out of the diaper and still consumed?!?

Sure! If you don't mind ingesting a few glass shards. Good wine is worth it!

No, judging by the Amazon video I posted earlier, it turns into some form of weird goop or gel.

Sounds like a deceptive test. Full bottles are (duh) heavier, and heavier objects land with more force, stressing the glass more than if it was empty.

Whatever, there's still value in all that absorbency even if the vid test is bunko.

That absorbency video on Amazon seems to make an assumption that a broken wine bottle does not produce any sharp edges to cut the plastic.

Why on Earth would you want to drink a broken bottle? Shards of glass have almost no flavor.

Has anyone tested these with the large format beer bottles? or an otherwise carbonated beverage? I'm more worried about the cap popping off than the bottle actually breaking.
