Translucent Flip-Spout Bottles
Clogs and Not Leakproof
I bought a few of these because there just aren't enough Nalgene size options for travel bottles. I love the Nalgene bottles and they've never let me down, but I needed something for shampoo that was a bit bigger than the 4oz. AND was a fliptop.
In theory, these are perfect. In practice, they are not. They leak, not easily, but under pressure they leak. The first time I flew with it packed in my suitcase, my toiletry bag had shampoo leakage. Not a lot, but still leakage. What I also hate is that the hole of the spout is terrible narrow. I'm not sure how it could be he product I use since I change it up, but the spout of my body wash and face wash is ALWAYS clogging. When I squeeze to try and break the clog, the liquid comes through the seams. Since I don't typically carry a paperclip or safety pin into the shower, especially when at the gym, I have to take the lid off and usually spill my very thin face wash mostly on the shower floor.
At this rate, I would've been better with the Nalgene screw top.

Liquid bottles recommended
I've been buying these bottles for my business for years. I've compared many places and checked eBay; it's still the best deal and they are exactly what I need. They used to go on sale during the travel discounts but now it's rare.

Small Size Perfect for Short Trips
Love this 1 oz. size for short trips, or when I want a brand of moisterizer, cosmetic, etc. that isn't available in travel size. Shape works well with multiple bottles in qt. size Ziploc bags for travel. Prefer the translucent so I can see what it is without labeling it. Will use larger sizes for longer trips, but this is perfect for a long weekend.
