Over the many centuries that tobacco pipe smoking has been around, people have learned a thing or two about the best ways to enjoy their smoking habits. One thing that can be said about most tobacco pipe enthusiasts is that they like to sustain the elegant air of pipe smoking as much as possible. There is also a lot to be said about protecting one’s clothing and other items from the side-effects of a pipe such as hot tobacco.
When a pipe smoker heads out for the day, he will usually prepare a travel pack to help him enjoy his smoke without bothering others. A tobacco pipe pouch is something that most pipe smokers have to help protect their pipes, their clothing and to help maintain their habit without interfering in the lives of others. Until you have actually smoked a pipe, it can be difficult to appreciate the process that actually goes into it.
The primary purpose of a pipe pouch is to protect the pipe itself. Most pipes come with a protective case that helps avoid any damage during shipping and gives the owner a place to put the pipe when he wants to put it on display. But it is impractical to carry those large cases around, and pipe smokers do not want to be limited to only enjoying their smoke at home. The case is usually made of a strong leather or lambskin that is also padded on the inside. The pouch is big enough to carry the tobacco pipe, tobacco and the accessories the smoker will need to enjoy his pipe.
Another reason smokers use pouches is to prevent tobacco ash from getting all over their clothing. Pipes can be great ways to relax, but they can also carry burnt tobacco residue that can get all over the place if it is not contained properly. A pouch is perfect to make sure that the pipe and its contents are properly contained until the pipe is needed.
Pipe pouches can come in different material, sizes, how many pipes it can hold and brands as well. Peterson, Savinelli and Jobey offer great pipe pouches. If you want to be able to bring your pipe with you wherever you go but limit the damage to your pipe and your clothing, then get a protective pouch and make your pipe mobile. Be sure to get a pouch that allows you to carry all of your pipe accessories and tobacco as well. That will help you to keep everything together in one carrying case.
