In Time for Summer, New Tote for Bringing Your Own Bottle

The neoprene byobag provides insulation and padding.
Jul 5, 2003

Many companies have come up with their take on the perfect wine tote, but the new byobag may be the ideal carrier for a waterside picnic, a day on a boat or -- in the case of the extended rainy season the northeastern United States had been having -- even just the dash from your house to your car to a party.

Made of 4 millimeter-thick neoprene, the same insulating material used in surfers' and divers' wetsuits, the bag keeps chilled wine cool and provides protective padding for the two bottles it holds. Plus, the sturdy material is easy to wash.

Made by Tuxedo, N.Y.—based BuiltNY, which designs specialized bags and accessories for niche professions (it also makes a large leather wine satchel for wine distributors), the byobag will be available starting July 15. It retails for $14.99 and comes in black and burgundy, as well as summery colors such as lagoon and leaf.

To learn more about the byobag or to purchase one, visit www.builtny.com or call (845) 351-2611.
