Chameleon Monsoon Water Pipe Review

Please support my work by sharing:

The Chameleon Monsoon spill-proof water pipe is the ultimate portable water filtration device. I’ve been smoking for more than a quarter century and this pipe has become my all-time favorite piece. It smokes like a bong but carries like a pipe and provides huge, smooth, well-filtered hits. The Chameleon Monsoon is markedly better than any traditional pipe I have used and gives most full size glass bongs a run for their money too.

Review Rating for Chameleon Monsoon Water Pipe: 5 of 5 Stars!

Chameleon Monsoon: Form

Chameleon Glass produced a beautiful but simple piece in the Monsoon. Although available in a range of colors, I chose green as it seemed the most fitting color for my work. 😉 This piece looks sharp and strong and it feels meaty but minimal in your hand. While it has the appearance of a classic glass pipe, it’s the beauty on the inside that makes this piece special. At first glance the inner workings of the Monsoon might appear to be merely decoration, though the emerald green chambers hidden under the crisp glass are not only visually appealing, but also quite functional.

Chameleon Monsoon: Function

I have owned a number of “spill proof” bongs and pipes in my time, and not one of them really held up to their claim of being a functional water pipe that was also spill-proof. The Monsoon has come close; unless you vigorously shake it or use it while overfilled, the water on the inside won’t leak out. It also doesn’t leak when you draw on the pipe, unless overfilled.

The primary function of the Monsoon is the filtering of smoke through water, and the piece performs superbly in this regard. The water in the pipe bubbles with just a slight draw, while the diffusing slots in the “post” chamber allow true filtering action to occur with minimal water. This results in a hit that is significantly cooled and with the heavier particulates reduced.

Despite its small size, the Chameleon Monsoon hits hard. Monster hits are possible and in this regard the piece is deceiving; you may get more than you bargained for if you suck too hard for too long (that’s what she said!).

I’ve been smoking Super Silver Haze for several weeks now through a traditional glass pipe. With the Monsoon, the same amount of the exact same marijuana gets me much, much higher. You know; the type of high where your eyes close up and no amount of snacking brings satiation. The type of high where, even if you’re alone, you look around and say;

Chameleon Monsoon: Durability

Glass pieces don’t normally last that long in my hands, but I feel confident that the Monsoon is up to the task. I travel a lot, including by foot, bicycle and airplane, so I need something that can be moved around without risk of breaking. This piece is solid, so I’m not worried about it at all, but I will update this post again in 6 months with more comments on its durability. Based on what I’ve experienced so far, it’s definitely not a sensitive piece. And it’s just the right size to take wherever you go.

Chameleon Monsoon: Uniqueness

I haven’t seen anything else quite like this. The only “spill-proof” pipe I have used that actually does what it advertises is the Aqua Pipe. However, the Aqua Pipe is made of plastic – including the bowl piece, and so the taste it produces is not exactly pleasant or clean. I used one for several months once and found that it clogged frequently. If you’re looking for a portable piece, frequent blockage can be frustrating, as consistent useful life between cleanings is short.

Chameleon Monsoon: Service

I purchased this locally so I haven’t had any interactions with Chameleon Glass. However, I did some cursory research for this post and found positive reviews for the company. Have you had a service experience with Chameleon? Let me know about it in the comments section below.

-Monsoon Spill Proof Glass Water Pipe

$ 81.99 – $ 89.99

The Monsoon Spill Proof Glass Water Pipe, it’s the bong you take along! Need your Meds on the go, but want the health conscious, but typically not so mobile function of water filtration? Sounds messy. Could be smelly too. Unless you’re rockin’ a Monsoon Spill Proof Glass Water Pipe. What makes the Spill Proof unusual is a system and placement of holes within the glass mechanism that allows smoke to bubble through water easily, yet makes it virtually impossible for the water to get out until you want it out (for cleaning).

This is quite the impressive pipe with it’s leak-proof design you can pop it in your bag and take it anywhere, it’s has a nice large chamber and generous sized bowl, the pipe provides a nice smooth inhale thanks to water the pipe keeps contained. If the water does get forced out by accident it’s easy to refill, a few drops from a tap or water bottle and your good to go again.

it was such a smooth hitting piece. great design. Had to get one as soon as I got back home. Recommend it to anyone.

Loved it, loved it, loved it! From the first hit to the last. This was my second Monsoon. The first one I had broke. It slipped out of my hand and hit the counter. The inner tube by the mouth piece broke inside. I was heartbroken. Being that I have the best girl in the world, she contacted Chameleon and told them my sob story and they were so awesome! They gave her a discount, a t-shirt and she gave them to me for Valentine’s day (told you, best). I have enjoyed my second one just as much as the first, unfortunately this time I tapped the counter as I was setting it down and it broke in the same place. It was just a tap. Again, awesome product, don’t get me wrong, just be gentle. I’ll miss you Monsoon!

I picked this piece up through a resaler as a holiday gift for my girlfriend. She loved it from day one, unfortunately so did I and it quickly just became mine. Possibly one of the smoothest pipes I’ve ever owned. Incredibly easy to clean.

One important note is that this is very fragile, as would be expected with the design. During cleaning I pulled it up right into the faucet and the inner portion cracked…. Saddest day of my adult life. BUT, I ordered straight through the site and the replacement came incredibly fast. I wouldn’t trade this pipe for anything. My friends and I all love it.

When I bought this pipe I was absolutely infatuated with it! Loved its features and took it with me everywhere! It’s easy to refill and the packaging was great! Loved how they included a case and a lighter with some hi-chews! Unfortunately my enjoyment of this product was cut short since mine was stolen from me by my ex only a week after having it… I will be ordering again soon!

I just received my second one, the first was given to a friend after two years of heavy use and is still going strong. I found that the best way to clean is to fill the reservoir with the same amount of rubbing alcohol as you would water for use and slowly bring it to a boil with a lighter or torch. It doesn’t take much heat but it is best not to cool too quickly as avoid cracking the glass.

B, I’m not sure about superheating a flammable liquid, but am stoked you dig the design 🙂 Puff on m’brother!

My 1st one slipped out of my hand when I was cleaning it. The 2nd one also got away and the rear perk fell loose and I left my last one that I took so much care of at a party and my friend let someone steal it. Two of them had the carb on the left instead of the right ? I miss them all so much.

I bought the green Monsoon a few years ago. My first piece. The smoke you pull is super smooth, especially with slow, even draws. Everyone I shared it with absolutely loved it too. Others mention it breaking easily, but I didn’t have that problem. I once dropped it on a stone plate/dish, and the plate broke. I dropped it countless times on carpet from a few feet up. Nothing. Dropped it into a sink a few times while rinsing it, still nothing. I dropped it down some concrete steps and it just rolled down. Finally, I dropped it an concrete again and the two inner pieces ended up breaking off. I was absolutely devastated. But, it did god damn well by me so I will be ordering another (or maybe the Absolute Zero, still undecided).

Don’t fill with too much water, or it’ll make it easier to get some out of the pipe and into your mouth.
Cleaning isn’t hard. Place in a Ziploc bag with 70%+ rubbing alcohol and some salt. Shake until you get all the crud off, and rinse thoroughly with water to get all salt and alcohol out. Make sure to either empty or replace water after each use to keep it from getting gross!

One of my homies has this pipe in blue. I used it one time with him and since I’ve always wanted one. Finally decided to pull the trigger and order one, so happy with it. Seriously hits like a bong, love that you can see the smoke building up. Only negative is that I like a clean pipe so I constantly have to clean it but it’s worth it for sure. Try it out and you won’t be upset
