Wine box backpack

Surely this must exist somewhere ?

A small, comfortable backpack, very similar to a runner's or biker's hydration pack, but designed specifically to take the bag out of a 3 or 5 litre wine box.

Some users put alcoholic beverages into conventional hydration packs, but this is custom-designed.

You can just make out the black tap protruding from the bottom below the brass photon coil. [theleopard, Jun 17 2011]

       I've actually made one of these. I went to Bestival on the Isle of Wight last year dressed as a steampunk time-travelling wino. My custom- made leather backpack contained two bags of space wine, with the taps protruding from the sides. I've never been more drunk in all my life.   

       I'll upload a picture of it later. (The costume/backpack, not the drunken haze.)

       An empty one of these could double as a sort of emergency toilet - also useful for festivals.

       Almost a perpetual wee machine. Just don't feed it back in.

       We look forward to seeing that, [lep].   

       Improvised one-off versions exist, but this would be properly engineered, with a cooler mechanism for white wine.   

       With the addition of a second "receiving" bag, and some very discreet and surreptitious plumbing, this could indeed be adapted to obviate those annoyingly necessary trips to the bathroom ...

       It's 3rd use is a hot water bottle/pillow.

       I have seen, from high in the banked stadium seating of an - ack spit - Eagles concert, poor benighted individuals roaming the pink stetson and bingo wings riddled stadium floor, dispensing what could only have been vile piss wine from a plastic backpack, down plastic tubes and into the plastic cups held forth by whooping, fagaddled harpies.

I have a new insult to cherish.
Thank you [calum]

       Simply brilliant. Add a School Backpack Disguise Kit and VOILA! A four year institution is instantly transformed into a ten-plus year institution (as long as those young livers hold out and the football team stops falling down after halftime). Bun [+].

       Steam-punk duct tape, [theleopard]?

       In the south, these would be Nascar beer hats.

       //Steam-punk duct tape, [theleopard]? //   

       It rained, I fell over, and the backpack required... alterations.

       While not in any way wishing to deride your enthusiasm or the excellence of your efforts (such as they were), we have to say that while it would be adequate as a "technology demonstrator", we actually have in mind something a little more, shall we say, contemporary - if not futuristic ...

       Cutting.

       // Cutting. //   

       Well, you seem to have plenty of duct tape, so it shouldn't be a problem ....

       Who needs a glass? Wine in a bag, sucked through a hose, for the Walmart crowd.
RayfordSteele, Jun 17 2011
  

       // sucked through a hose //   

       Yes, that's the concept. Maybe even a small pump, or mild pressurisation, for when you're so drunk you're losing control of your voluntary musckes.   

       Maybe an accelerometer system to detect when you've fallen and can't get up, at which point it switches from the hose to IV delivery.   

       // the Walmart crowd //   

       We didn't know you mixed with the sophisticated set, [Ray].
