   Sneaky Pete says:

The Great Lakes Defender Water Pipe is a small but sturdy portable water pipe that gives a surprising amount of cooling thanks to its novel engineering. With an upward-facing 14mm female joint, the Defender features a crown style percolator with many tiny holes to provide a massive amount of filtration and cooling.

Sitting above the crown percolator, you’ll see the dark purple orb for which this water piece was named. The Defender orb has two functions: it disperses the tiny bubbles produced by the percolator for additional cooling, while defending against their escape through the mouthpiece.

Together, these elements create a symphony of small cooling bubbles while preventing water from reaching your mouth. You can draw hard on the 6” tall Great Lakes Defender for a full, rich vapour with significant cooling in line with much larger rigs. With a cool design and cool vapour, the Defender delivers.

Great Lakes Defender™ Water Pipe Review & User Guide

The Defender Water Pipe uses a crown percolator and defender orb to create a symphony of vapour-cooling bubbles and stop water from reaching your mouth.

WATER PIPE DESIGN

Thick glass with a robust 14mm female joint on a bolstered arm

Standing at 6” tall, the Defender is both portable and extremely efficient. The unique vapour optimization pathway delivers mighty good hits every single time. The crown percolator breaks up your vapour into lots of tiny bubbles that filter and cool your hit directly, with further disruption provided by the Defender orb for extra cooling and defense against any water heading your way. This unique feature really enhances the performance of this portable water piece.

Designed with thick glass and a robust 14mm female joint on a bolstered arm, it's a perfect match for many of your favorite vaporizers, while being adaptable to most other units with a Sneaky Pete Master Adapter.

HOW TO USE A DEFENDER

Just fill with water and insert your vaporizer

Fill your Great Lakes Defender with water and insert your vaporizer into the 14mm female joint, using an adapter if you need one. The video above features a quick demo using the Crafty+ by Storz & Bickel.

As you can see in the demo, while the Defender stands hands-free, it can become top heavy with certain vaporizers on board, so make sure you position the weight of your vape toward the center of the rig.

As you inhale, the vapour is filtered through the crown percolator and the bubbles it produces are further broken down by the orb. It all chimes together to produce a smooth, cool vapour without any need for large bowls or whips!

HOW TO CLEAN A DEFENDER

Use isopropyl alcohol and rock salt

You want to keep your glass clean for the best performance and flavour but there’s absolutely no need to overdo it. I only clean my glass when it’s getting noticeably dirty, like when it’s no longer transparent, or there’s a build up of resin or particulate matter.

To clean your Great Lakes Defender, empty most of the water out first. Put some isopropyl alcohol in a freezer bag, add a good shake of rock salt, then drop in your tool. Gently grip your glass from the outside of the bag and give it a good shake, guiding the iso in and around your pipe. The rock salt is a gentle abrasive to mechanically remove the resin without scratching the glass.

As soon as it’s clean, stop shaking, give the glass a thorough rinse under a tap and stand it on a paper towel to dry. For the best results, use a 99% concentration of isopropyl alcohol. You can buy cheap dollar store stuff but the dilution with water makes it a false economy that doesn’t work nearly as well. Check out my video on how to clean your water tools for extra visuals.

Strengths

The Great Lakes Defender is a chunky, user-friendly water tool, fitting any 14mm male vaporizer.

The novel internal design delivers high performance hits at a portable size, great for a streamlined travel operation.

It works beautifully with a Vong (no adapter needed), or a DynaVap M when paired with a Sneaky Pete Master Adapter.

Weaknesses

Although the Defender has a sturdy base, you need to take a little extra care with how you position a bulky vaporizer on top.

CONCLUSION

Insanely effective for its compact size


I’m always advocating for vaping through water; it’s something you see me doing all the time in my vaping videos. For me it’s almost a necessity. Running your vapour through a water pipe adds a lot more enjoyment to the experience. It enhances the smoothness and flavor, and of course takes away those harsh temperatures.

The Great Lakes Defender water pipe is insanely effective for its compact size. The crown vapour optimization combined with the Defender orb makes this a unique piece that delivers large, smooth, and consistently cool hits.

Excellent water pipe/bubbler!

Just picked this up and let me say that for the size this things works incredibly well. I use it just for dry herb through my DynaVap and Air 2. The vapor is cool, tasty and overall just awesome. If you need a compact and efficient water pipe to improve your vaping experience then you can't go wrong with the Defender.

Great great lakes

I use this with my Dyna Vap (which is great by its self). Allows you to heat the Dyna Vap longer for bigger rips while keeping the vapor cool. The only downside is the reduced flavour of the terpines. A small but effective water pipe.

Perfect for traveling

This pipe is the perfect size for the on the go situation. It’s a bite small but I knew what I was buying so can’t complain.

Works well

Cools that vapor noticeably, with much less throat irritation. Minus one star, since some water still manages to make its way to the mouthpiece. I stick my PAX with an adapter on it and it stays stable, no tipping over. Overall a good purchase!

Maybe not the best dab rig...

Bought this rig to pair with my DTV4 for concentrate use but the perc on this rig gets clogged sooo fast. After like 5 dabs the perc was clogged and i couldn't draw from it. I may keep it for vaping flower, but i rarely do that nowadays.
