In Search of the Perfect Camping Wine Glass

The kids are asleep. The fire’s still crackling. It’s time for a nice glass of wine before you tuck yourself into your comfy RV bed for the night.

But when you open the RV cupboard door, out tumbles your crystal stemware glasses, shattering in a million pieces on your camper floor.

Nobody wants that. But nobody wants to drink a fine pinot from a red plastic cup, either.

Enter the GSI Outdoors nesting wine glass. This BPA-free, co-polyester marvel mimics a quality wine glass, without the danger of glass shards spreading across the RV floor or anywhere else likely to see little bare feet.

The stem of the glass unscrews, and then “nests” neatly and securely inside the body of the glass for storage and transport. It’s lightweight, and goes anywhere including a backpack.

The glasses have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of just $7.50 per unit. The GSI websitehas a local dealer finder feature, as well as a “buy now” button that will link you to online retailers who carry the glasses.

Now, all you need to do is find that perfect camping merlot.

    I received this as a gift and it’s portability and compactness is fabulous, but……sunscreen lotion that I always have on, distorted the plastic and it can’t be removed. So now the bowl part where I held the glass is cloudy. Makes me wonder how easily this broke down and if my wine or other beverages could do the same?
