This items includes the bag only - it does not include the styrofoam case, shipper box or cold pack.

If you purchase the bag only, the best places to look for a wine shipper box are offsite wine storage facilities, since they receive so many shipper boxes for their clients. Be sure to call ahead first. Also, local chain liquor and wine stores will sell shipper boxes in the back of the store. Also, larger wine shops often have shipper boxes that they are happy to unload for free or a small price.

According to the manufacturer, the Wine Check fits nearly ALL wine shipper boxes and inserts (they've yet to find one that doesn't fit). The preferred, and most common, shipper box size is 18.5 x 14 x 16 inches.

While nearly all of the lay-down, pulp wine shippers will fit in The Wine Check, some airlines REQUIRE Styrofoam.

Sturdy, but a bit thicker than expected

After our recent visit to New York's Finger Lakes region, where we discovered more good wines than we expected resulting in our shipping a case of wine home to California, we finally decided to buy this bag for future trips. Haven't used it yet, but our initial impressions are:

- Appears to be sturdy and well-made.
- Reasonably lightweight.
- When folded, it's thicker than we expected (about seven inches at the end with the wheels) -- but we should have anticipated that since it a) has wheels (duh!) and b) needs to have enough structure at that end to support the load of 12 wine bottles! Fortunately, the suitcase that we'll carry this in is expandable so we won't have to cut back (much) on the items that we'd usually pack for a trip.
- The red color makes it stand out; we hope that will cause baggage handlers to be a bit careful with it.
- Should save us quite a bit on shipping wines home in the future, even after paying $25 to check the extra bag.

We look forward to putting the bag to use the next time we fly someplace where wineries will be on the agenda!

Good Protection for your Wines

Bag is sturdy with good handles. Like other reviewers, the handle strap seems misplaced. It should be higher on the side. The low location makes it harder to use due to the angle you're pulling. We ended up running the strap up through the handle to help with this, but it obviously shortened the strap.

This bag does not work with some of the current case boxes. It's sized for traditional boxes with Styrofoam inserts. However, wineries are using fewer Styrofoam carriers. As they go green, recyclable boxes of cardboard or fiberboard type material (think heavy duty egg crates) are used almost exclusively. These boxes & inserts are usually larger than the boxes utilizing Styrofoam inserts.

Just got the bag

Have not used it yet, but it is much larger than I expected. Folded flat it fits nicely in my suitcase. Doesn't fold as flat as I expected because of the wheels but it will work. Our trip is coming up soon. I think we will bring a roll of bubble wrap and just get a box from one of the wineries. I'm excited to see how it works.

TSA rules

I just talked to TSA and they said I can only check 5L per bag, thus my husband and I would EACH have to check our 5L in separate bags vs. all 12 bottles in one wine check - anyone have experience with this?
