"All" what guys? Doesn't seem to be many of them at all, and even the OP who had TWO failures apparently used them in a less-than-ideal manner.

Bottom line use common sense when using anything when you brew from your kettle to your Carboy and everything in between. If your stuff looks shoddy or worn or you don't check the placement of something like a brew hauler than you should expect bad results. You wouldn't drive a car with a loose brake pedal or jump out of a plane with checking a parachute would you ? Don't move a Carboy without checking your strap either. Nuff said.

Some people are smarter than the inanimate objects around them.

A good carpenter never blames his tools.

Weak attempt at an insult...If I buy a hammer and the head flies off of the handle the first time I use it, I'm gonna be a little pissed. Why are people taking the OP message as a personal attack? He's sharing an experience, heed it, don't heed it, its up to you. Insulting him like the hauler would only fail at the hands of an idiot is lame.

That's pretty sweet. Did you do that with one piece of rope? How much rope did you use to get around each one of those?

Since reading this OP's confession, I have not used my strappings of nylon. I've been carrying my glass carboys with careful bare hands (else to suffer lost beers by accidentation). My hands are free and idle and they got the gripping power of a ghecko. And when my hands get wet and slippy, or if they reached a couple extra drinky-poos to relax my wobbly pantaloons up or down the narrow and unsteady flights on frayed shoes whilst maneuvering the bulbous glass filled with happy brews, my heel does spring a step or two. Nay, my feet skip a few.

In other words: Stop the madness.

I just saw a carboy cozy at my LHBS. It was insulated with a zipper and a handle and it fit like a glove. I want one. I should have bought it, but it was for a 5 gallon and I have a 6.5 gallon. It was a blue color.

I cannot find it online. This is the closest thing I could find...



...but that is not it. This one was insulated with foam and had a stretchable nylon outer layer and handles like a backpack. Very sturdy looking. Doesn't look cheap though. It may not stop breakage on a big fall but it would certainly contain the shattering making it a little safer.

I want it. But can't find online...
