NalgeneÂ® Flip-Top Leakproof Bottle
Subject to an update
I haven't tried these yet so I can't write a full review, but I've given them 5 stars based on prior reviews and what I've experienced so far. These are my impressions. They are a lot "shorter" and "rounder" than the norm (which is what I imagined) so they tend to be a little bulky in my tri-fold/hanging toiletries bag. However, they are of a larger size which is what I wanted because I always run out of something on a trip due to the smaller size bottles I was using. These were easy to fill and the material of the bottle lets you squeeze easily. My only concern is that the tops on all 8 of the bottles I purchased look like they are not screwed on evenly which may cause leakage. My trip is not for another two months so I have these bottles filled and in little zip bags and packed and now I am treating my toiletry bag to a lot of rolling and tumbling around the house in order to give them a chances to leak. Right now the bag is upside down on my kitchen table just daring them leak.

Not Quite Leakproof
I bought the flip top 4 oz containers for air travel. Unfortunately, they are not entirely leakproof. I use Old Spice body wash, and that liquid persistently leaks through the flip top spigot. I use shampoo and conditioner, and those have leaked as well, although not as bad as the body wash.
I tried sealing the bottles in a zip loc freezer bag for a while, but all that did was contain the leakage inside the bag. Now I pack the bottles in a kitchen container that is not susceptible to changing ambient air pressure like the bag is, and my leakage has stopped.
I am fully satisfied with the containers otherwise, but am disappointed that the products did not live up to the leakproof claims.

No leaks makes a happy traveller
Nalgene makes super bottles. I have this size and have traveled with two - three of them each time that I travel. Perfect for a week long trip. I always have more than enough left when I return home.
I recently bought the Metro labels that are advertised with them because they just give a cleaner look. The permanent marker that I've used on the bottles in the past works but comes off after just a short while.
