What is it? A reusable pouch which holds 750ml of liquid (an entire bottle of wine). It's a lightweight alternative to glass.What's it for? Flat Pak Wine says it's for "anywhere glass is not allowed". Once you think about it, that's a lot of places (coaches, concerts, sport matches etc). It's also great for if you don't want to carry a heavy bottle around. For instance, if you enjoy fishing or camping (I do not) or even if you were just having a picnic in the park (now that I can do).
Another use, which isn't suggested but is totally foreseeable, is sneaking drinks into places. I myself hate how when you go to a concert you're forced to drink out of plastic cups because once the crowd gets going your drink splashes everywhere, and I always go to the front of a crowd where it's so hot that not being able to have a bit of water for two hours is murder. The Flat Pak Wine could easily be stashed in a bra or down a trouser leg.

How much? It's usually £9.99 but is on offer at the moment for £6 from Amazon. Amazon will do free UK delivery if you spend over £20. They're also having a two for £9.99 promotion at the moment (one for you one for a friend, or two for you) and you can grab the discount code from their Twitter page.
Verdict It's a handy little item worth buying. Dare I say these words in October...it's also a great stocking filler or secret Santa idea.
