What can I say? For something that at first glance is more of a novelty than a real product, the Liquid Lounger, as it turns out, is no slouch. As a backpack, it is supremely solid and uncommonly comfortable to wear. As a fashion accessory, the black pack is seriously cool. As the only wearable party super tool, it is simply without equal. The bar equipment is very well made; the flask even has the Burton insignia on it. I use the LL daily as a work pack but have taken it out on a few outings. Are there some changes I would make? Sure. I would make the flask lid connected (so you wouldn't lose it in the snow). I would also add a strap to keep the lower portion of the chair better connected to the pack. Finally, I'd probably add a water bottle holder. Could these miniscule changes have affected my decision to buy the Burton Liquid Lounger? Not on your life. It's not that I wouldn't go someplace without it, I DON'T go anywhere without it.
