The BeerBelly


A number of the people I know have got a beer belly for free – and it’s not something they find particularly useful. However, if you’ve still got your shape and want to fit in with the crowd, help is at hand with the BeerBelly – a false frontage that is particularly useful if you like a drink on the go.

Strap on your BeerBelly and you can drink what you want, when and where you want to. It’s made up of an insulated neoprene "sling" and a polyurethane "bladder" with a tube for dispensing. The bladder is held in an insulated pouch in the sling which is worn under your clothing for concealment. When you’ve got it under your dart player top and over your low-slung trousers, it looks just like a beer belly – except it’s full of ice cold beer!

The bladder holds up to 80oz of your favourite beverage and there’s a wide opening mouth for cleaning – or adding ice if it’s a warm day. Or if it’s cold, the BeerBelly is also suited to hot drinks.

Available from Firebox for around £35.
