Default Best hookah for both home and away?

I was wanting to buy a hookah that I can use as a main hookah at home but be able to travel with. About 50% of the time I will be taking my hookah to a friends house but I still want the best hookah I can get and still be able to take with me. Right Now I'm between the 22" Nammor Nile and the 26" Tigris both at hookah-shisha. So do you think 26" is too big a hookah to take with me alot or would it be easy enought to take around? My other question is what site has the best durable hookah carrying cases im not to comfortable with the carrying bags that will come with either hookah. Or if you have any experience with the carrying bags are they any good?


Thanks,
Brian

26 inches is still pretty portable, so it shouldn't be too bad. I'd try the bag it comes with. If you don't think it's durable then you can get a rifle bag at Wal-Mart

I have a 26'' MYA for this reason - MYA case w/ locks and removable downtube/ 1-4 hoses makes for a super versatile package. that being said ... I would still take a look at the hobo Nargile - its even more versatile and doesn't have a common heart.

I would reccomend a mid-sized mya. They smoke well, but they also break down and fit into an included case.

mya is going to be your best choice IMHO.

i have a mya mini with the acrylic base and it was great at home and away but it is a bit small. my friend has a gelato and it smokes very very well when set up properly (he always put way to much water in it and went a while w/o cleaning it well).

i know a lot of the myas come with a case (the minis do not, at least the acrylic one doesnt). the best part about the myas is that the down stem is removable so you can get a bigger rig in a smaller space BUT the main stems are hollow not smooth so you need to wash it very well (scrubbing it with soap and water, rinse, fill with vinegar and hold for 20-60 seconds then rinse well again works very well)

I use my 36 inch KM as a travel hookah. I just toss that sucker in a Storm double rifle case and off i go. The case is water and air tight,rated for underwater use down to 100 meters, and also rated for parachute drops. Basically the thing is indestructable, therefore it can turn any hookah into a travel hookah.

Edit: no dont buy one for your hookah, chances are it will cost more than the hookah your trying to protect.
