15 smell-proof bags to keep your stash safe on the go
Gone are the days of simply throwing your stuff in a bag and heading out. We see innovation in every facet of our daily lives, so it should come as no surprise that cannabis connoisseurs now have many options for taking their herb on the go. Plus, smell-proof bags have other benefits besides concealing odors, including controlling moisture loss, maintaining potency and preventing others (especially children) from tampering with your stash.
There are several considerations that never would have occurred to us until we started research for this story – Does the bag have to be waterproof? Is smell-proof important if the container WITHIN the bag is smell-proof? Who knew there were male and female options – “purse” vs “lunchbox”? Disposable or long-term? While functional and design choices abound, it WAS slightly frustrating to see so many of our favorites in boring GRAY, but don’t hold that against us.
Here’s a list of the front-runners we thought showed the most promise and also had good reviews from consumers, while offering plenty of choices for budget and personal style:
This Skunk Mr. Slick bag measures 11 x 6 inches and features a sleek olive green fabric. It’s made with a special carbon technology which helps to prevent any smells from escaping when you carry weed around in it. This makes it one of the best models to consider investing in if you’re looking for a smell-proof product. In addition to this, it also has 2 tabs sewn into the edge that have a strong Velcro seal to help prevent anything from falling out. However, while this Velcro strap can be helpful it can also cause some problems as it’s very strong and might make trying to open the bag a little difficult sometimes.
Discreet Smoker has several bag options, but this one is touted as “dog tested AND smell-proof” – the added benefit of a lock makes it a utility player. This one has a combination lock that allows you to choose a 3-digit code, and is very discreet, as the name implies. This one received high markets for the budget conscious as well, with many of the bells and whistles that other options priced as a premium.
The Skunk Travel Pro comes in three different colors: black, gray, and olive green. It measures 10 inches and is very large. This makes it perfect for those who want to carry a lot of stuff around with them to use. The fabric is heavy-duty and features carbon technology which is meant to help with preventing smells from escaping. It’s also waterproof so if you need that extra assurance, you won’t have to worry about it being damaged by water. While a little on the pricey side, it’s made to last, so the durability helps to justify the higher price tag.
Another product offering multiple benefits, Helmet Head provides superior odor proof control, a lock to prevent unauthorized users from your stuff, AND waterproof both inside and out. extra props for this one for the two inside pockets to keep things organized – perfect for your grinder card, rolling papers, lighters, baggies, pipes and more.
While this one is on the expensive side, the multiple compartments are a great help in staying organized. Bursting with helpful products such as an odor absorbing OdorPax, two cannabis jars, a marking pen, and a stash journal, it’s the bag that keeps on giving. The lunchbox looking design isn’t a detractor for us, and the sturdy design make the higher price tag easier to swallow.
The Anonymous Bag is deceptively simple – but is lined with scent-suppressing foil and extra cushioning, this little bag is mighty in function and capacity. The included childproof locking zippers are an added bonus for this budget-friendly pick.
This “kit” is exactly that. The compact design doesn’t leave anything out, and though small, the kit comes with everything you’d need for the perfect smoke session including papers, rolling tips, a grinder card, and a one-hitter. This is sleek and easy to store, but has plenty of space for the essentials. We liked the hand stitching and the carbon filters inside that truly provide the anti-stink needs of a consumer.
RYOT produces several smell-proof bags and containers, but this one is a no-nonsense solution that is basic and non-descript. The Piper™ features memory style foam, RYOT® Stick Stop™ silicone pad, lined freshness pouch and durable exterior weatherproof canvas fabric. The company’s SmellSafe™ Carbon Series™ locks in odors for discrete storage and transport and we love that you can reactivate the Carbon lining filters, simply put in the dryer for 5 minutes. This one does provide a lockable zipper – but the lock is not included.
The disposable bags are effective without being expensive – but take them for what they are. These bags do a great job of providing protection from the elements and keep the smells inside the bag where they belong, but they ARE fancy disposable bags with no frills. Lake and beach lovers will enjoy the ease of these for herb – but they aren’t going to be a catch all for your other gear.
The Joyboxx Stashboxx is technologically savvy and the only item made out of plastic that made our list. It’s made to be anti-bacterial so mold isn’t going to be a concern, plus the built-in vents modulate temperature. The 2 locks are a great addition for privacy and control for your stash and supplies.
When it comes to simplicity and affordability – this is a great choice. The navy blue fabric that is thick enough to prevent odors from escaping and rips from easily occurring. On the top edge and in the interior, you’ll find Velcro straps inside. These are meant to help keep your equipment from falling out and others from quickly getting into your stash bag. This secure weed stash bag also features carbon technology. This technology helps to prevent odors from escaping so you can transport it around practically anywhere.
This bag is another that is small, but effective. The Firedog meets the requirement for being smell-proof, but also has a durable design and the detachable loop makes it easy to clip on other bags or throw in a larger travel bag. Those on a budget will appreciate the reasonable price and the minimalist design make it easy to miss and unlikely to cause inquiries from fellow travelers.
The Kozo drives images of tool or tackle boxes and will appeal to those who are fans of the industrial design. This kit provides more than the container which is air tight and smell proof, but also includes a Kozo Brand four-piece aluminum grinder ($20 value), a UV-proof glass jar with an odor-proof seal, a rolling tray, a combination lock and black padding to securely protect all your herbal necessities. Another thing that makes this one unique is they’re the only product we found offering a satisfaction guarantee.

Inside the container are customizable walls and a large zipper pocket under the lid to keep your valued items safe, organized and secure. The Smell Proof Zipper is also a 3 digit Combination Lock. The body of the case is made from 3 durable layers of Nylon, EVA and Polyester for smell proof, discrete protection and storage when home or traveling. The case is firm yet flexible and can withstand plenty of abuse. Another budget-friendly option – this one is an easy win for function, form and price.
This is the largest bag on our list – and features interior dividers that can be rearranged to suit any individual needs for the owner. This case is includes a Humidity Jar System to keep your goods fresh for over 6 Months. For those who want to carry enough supply and tools for everyone along for the ride, this is the bag for you.
