We’ve all been there before, you go on a night out, spend a little too much money, and find that your bank account has seen brighter days in the morning. Many individuals will go out of their way to try and make their night a little cheaper by finding cheaper ways to consume beverages. Whether that’s sneaking alcohol into a bar, chatting to somebody for drinks, or hiding alcohol within a flask, there are a variety of different ways to do it.
The problem with flasks, however, is that they are blatantly obvious and you aren’t actually allowed to take your own alcohol into bars at all! So… if you’re feeling a little mischievous, or simply just fancy a drink during the day (I won’t judge), why not consider a hidden flask? The hidden flasks I am going to review in this list all take the appearance of a normal item that you would most likely bring around with you during a normal working day. Yes, some of them you may not get into a bar, but if you need a drink during the day whilst you’re out and about, or on holiday, why not consider some of these concealable hidden flasks?
Here are some of the very best hidden flasks you can get right now!
GoPong Rain Umbrella Flask
The GoPong Rain or Shine Umbrella flask really is a godsend when it comes to hiding beverages. For starters, you receive two different realistic looking umbrellas which both hold 12oz of liquid each, which when you have two of them, is more than enough to get you through the day. Most people tend to carry umbrellas with them during the day and even on nights out, especially when you live in a rainy state or country, so there is no way that you could possibly be questioned about them.
The actual brand name “rain and shine” is believable in itself, so I highly doubt you will be questioned upon arrival. If you are just using the flask to drink during the day though, please do be aware that you may receive some funny looks when somebody spots you drinking out of what they thought was an umbrella!
The Umbrella is manufactured with food-safe materials and includes a mess-free pouring spout so that you can easily insert your choice of beverage within.
Pros: Realistic, Two Products Included, Cheap
Cons: Easily Spotted If Drinking In Public, Can’t Use As A Real Umbrella
Sneaky Booze Sports Bra
Now for you men out there, I regret to inform you that you may not get away with this hidden flask, however that doesn’t mean I am going to stop you. The Sneaky Booze sports bra is one of the best products i have seen on the market in terms of hidden flasks, as you literally can’t see them one bit. The product has been designed for women as a means of hiding the flask underneath their garments and is leak-proof so don’t worry about any spillages (because that would be embarrassing). It features a liquid capacity of 25oz which really is more than enough when storing alcohol for a night out. You may be wondering how exactly you can get the alcohol from the bra, but it’s actually supplied through a detachable hose and tube which fits perfectly within the bra itself.
Pros: Comfortable, 25oz Can Be Stored, Risk-Free Purchase (Can Be Replaced Or Refunded Within 30 Days)
Cons: Only Small and Medium Sizes.
Hand Lotion And Sanitizer Flask
For all of you individuals out there who place emphasis on hand sanitisation and cleanliness, this is the perfect product for you.

The only trouble you may come across is where somebody may notice your real sunscreen, but who really can ever have enough of the stuff!

You could quite easily take your flask to the toilet and consume the alcohol on the quiet without anybody realizing it.
The only problem with this product is that males couldn’t get away with it and that each tube holds a maximum liquid capacity of 1fl oz.

For all of you guys out there who love rocking a tie on a regular basis, I think I’ve found the perfect product for you. The tie flask has become incredibly popular for those sophisticated nights out in the city and those miserable train commutes where a small sip of your favorite beverage would brighten up the day. The tie has a liquid capacity of 8oz which is more than enough to see you through the night with the occasional swig. The way in which you can consume the beverage is through a collapsible funnel at the end of the tie itself, so it will literally just look like your bored and sucking the end of your own tie when taking a drink.
There are a variety of different ties to choose between in terms of colour and size, as BAXBO, the manufacturer, really have tried their best to cater to different styles and body types. You don’t even need to use this flask for alcohol either, sometimes it’s hard to carry around a water bottle, especially if you’re wearing a suit, so why not keep some of the water within the tie and have a drink when you need to.
Pros: Variety of different colorways and sizes, Discreet, Collapsible Rubber Funnel
Cons: If somebody was to touch your tie they would feel the liquid

If you’re into your gamedays, festivals or bird-watching, these hidden flask binoculars will serve you well. The flask has been manufactured to mimic real binoculars, except one of the eyepieces will screw off to reveal a funnel where you can fill the flask. Each individual eyepiece will store 8 oz of liquid and a shoulder strap is included with the product so that you can easily hang the flask naturally whilst you’re walking around on your game day. Please do remember however, that these aren’t real binoculars and if the liquid leaks into your eye, you may look pretty stupid when consulting a doctor! (So bear that in mind)

Cons: Can’t Use As Real Binoculars

What to Consider
Drinking in public is representative of the open container law, which prohibits many individuals throughout the world from drinking their own beverages in public. These laws have been put in place quite rightly, to reduce alcoholism and trash, which has therefore led to better behaviour, cleaner streets and increased business for bars and restaurants. You should always make sure to check the laws surrounding open container laws in whatever country or state you are in.
How well hidden is it:
You need to make sure that you don’t bring attention to yourself when using your hidden flask. If you are caught drinking from something which is blatantly fake, you may be questioned on what you are drinking, even if it is just water. Make sure that the flask is well hidden at all times to avoid prying eyes.
Get your story straight:
One key thing to remember is to always keep your story straight. What I mean by this is that if you are caught with one of the hidden flasks above, you must have a believable story as to why you have that particular item with you. If you are believable enough, no further questions will be asked.
What else can you use a flask for?
Of course, flasks aren’t purely used for alcohol because quite frankly in most places throughout the world you can’t drink alcohol in public. Many people will resort to flasks as a way of storing their water throughout the day without having to necessarily go out and purchase drinks from the shop.

Brief History Of Flasks
If you thought that hip flasks were a relatively new accessory, I’m afraid you’re completely wrong. They have been used for centuries! According to slightlyalabama.com the origins of flasks can be traced all the way back to Paleolithic humans living in the stone age, who will have used animal skin pouches with fermented wild grapes inside; (A.K.A Wine) just eluding to how long the human race has been consuming alcohol. As time has passed, humans have continued to use hip flasks, but advanced in terms of materials used.
