Let’s say you’re living in a dorm or at home and people are always coming in and out of your room. Maybe your roommate is really careless and leaves your door open a lot, or perhaps your mom checks your room once a week to make sure you’re keeping it clean. What better way to hide your smoking piece than as a bracelet? Because that’s exactly what the Shhmokewear Wrist Hookah does.
Shhmokewear has gotten pretty creative here. There’s a variety of designs to pick from, whether you want a Rasta look or an all black glass bracelet. There’s a dozen different styles to pick from and they come in three sizes: small, medium and large. If you like the hemp look for bracelets it’s perfect, but regardless you won’t get more than a second look wearing this discrete hookah.
First, yes, it totally works. The end of the bracelet screws into the other side, which is a bowl with a screen. Just to note, we got two of the bracelets; an original and a glass one. The original had a screen in the metal bowl while the glass model has nothing there to prevent herbs from falling inside the piece. That could be a random error or perhaps it’s by design, but it’s worth looking into if you’re after the glass one.
We tried the metal one and it worked perfectly; unscrew the bracelet end from the other and put your tobacco or medical marijuana inside. Every bracelet has a bead (which is actually the mouth piece) that can slip out of the hemp on one side and you inhale from. The hits themselves were smooth and easy to take.
The bracelet got hot quickly and had to be set down before it could be worn or smoked again, so those looking for discretion at a concert will find a lot of downtime between hits to prevent burning themselves.
Prices seem to vary from $35.00 to $50.00. The Forest Original Hookah that we tried was $35.00 and very satisfying. For your purchase you get one single hookah bracelet.
Overall we liked the concept and the functionality, but big picture we don’t see this piece getting utilized much. Prolonged use will see the bowl get dirty quickly and there’s no obvious way to clean it that won’t damage the bracelet. The other thing is the temperature: while we enjoyed the hits from the hookah, the bracelet heated up very quickly and couldn’t be smoked from again, let alone worn. The discretion factor is kind of minimized if you have to put the bracelet down to cool off every bowl or so. That being said, if you’re the type to go to a concert or other outdoor event once a month, or even someone who who doesn’t want the hassle of transporting a piece for a long weekend, then this is great. But if you think you’re going to use it constantly, well, there are other smoking devices out there that are a little more durable.
