Honestly as far as my smaller Grav pieces this is absolutely my new favorite. The addition of the silicone allows to store and also protects the glass very well in my opinion. I dropped in my kitchen on tile and it bounced. Also I realized it is a standard Grav Labs chillum inside so if for some reason the glass were to ever break the chillum safe affordable and easy to clean. Overall great piece, amazing quality per usual. Grav Labs still killin it!
