Since almost everyone who reads OhGizmo loves beer, the Beer Belly needs some attention, seeing as it allows you to drink and sneak beer into whatever situation you could ever think of: ballparks, kid’s piano recital, wife’s OB/GYN appointment, etc. Carrying up to 80oz of fluid, the unit is designed to be worn by users up to 6’8″ and up to a 40″ waist, so covering almost everyone. Made of Neoprene, the Beer Belly can hold hot or cold beverages and comes with a tube for dispensing. The bladder even has a wide opening to accommodate ice so you are not limited to beer: you can even fill it with mixed drinks such as margaritas. This opening also allows for easy cleaning.
A variety of accessories are available such as the Pleasure Extender, an icepack that keeps things chilly even longer. What has to be the best feature is that it comes in at $34.95 for the basic system and the deluxe at $49.95. They even did a “Return On Investment Analysis”: with modern sporting events’ beer being almost $7 each, you can recoup the costs easily in one event. What would you fill it with? I’m a Maredsous 8 man.
