NalgeneÂ® Snap Closure Vials
These are FANTASTIC! I am writing what I put in it so you have an idea to compare to what you need it for --- I was concerned cuz most do not hold all the larger pills I have to put in for a day at work.
This container will hold 5 large oval tablets (calcium, multi-vitamin), 1 large capsule (Vit C), 1 small capsule (pro-biotic), 2 small gels (Vit D) and one small tablet (letrozole) and the top closes! It's totally full with these - could get in a couple more small tablets to fill the spaces between the large.
The top is snug and use side of thumb on side of it to push it up for fairly easy opening for all. I think children would have a tougher time opening it than older adults. I am thrilled that I no longer have to use the little zip-locs for meds as it's the only convenient and large enough holder I found -- but tears & gets holes when placed in purse. This nalgene will not! And can go in dishwasher instructions said! Just got mine last week but if like the nalgene water bottles we use all the time (& for years!!) these will go on for a loooooong time! Thanks for making these! I cannot recommend them enough!!!
(NOTE: I tried the mini flex-pack, also from Container store ---- great idea but will not hold all my pills -- can't get in 2 of the larger ones)

The two that I purchased for $1.99 each are NOT leak proof. I put insulin bottles in them and place them in a container with ice for traveling to Europe. Both vials filled with water as the ice melted.

Great for dividing SF drink mix powders!
Why pay for over-priced individual drink mix powers to take on the go? I have used the smallest size of these containers for almost 10 years! Divide a regular 2 quart powder mix between 4 of these containers and pop 1 or 2 in your purse to add to a 20 ounce water bottle later. Great way to save money and the containers are so durable and last forever. I'm ordering a few more now, after many years, only because I lost 2!

Carry daily medication spill proof and watertight
These vials are excellent for travel. Will not open in your bag or pocket and keep medication accessible without fear if spilling or letting humidity affect pills. I use different sizes the smaller one I bring in my backpack my morning medication on overnight flights so I don't need to open my luggage in plane just to get the pills. Also works well to bring pills to breakfast at hotel, etc. Larger ones good to bring a one week supply of vitamins. The plastic is high quality Made in USA and sticky fish oil will not stick to vial.
