NalgeneÂ® Leakproof Jars
Too heavy and bulky for volume
I buy products like this for one purpose only - light weight backpacking - where every gram counts. I consider this product too heavy and bulky for its volume. The 1 oz container weighs 0.6 oz. I prefer the Nalgene product called Snap Closure Vial, where the 1 oz container weighs only 0.25 oz. However if fractions of ounces don't bother you, then this wide mouth product would be good for things like face cream or peanut butter as it is easy to reach inside and scrape the contents clean.

great for travel
In light of the liquid restrictions for carry-on baggage, I reviewed my "must have" list, determined the quantities needed, and ordered various sizes and kinds of these small Nalgene containers. You can cram alot of these into a quart zip lock bag. My trip isn't until next month, so for now I am experimenting with them to make sure the quantities I estimated will last me 11 days. I also bought the 1 oz snap-top for Altoids (lighter, neater and smaller than the tin). Got the .4 oz snap top for a small supply of pills. I think these containers will be keepers. Much better quality than previous containers I bought at the drugstore, and the small size and light weight just makes better sense.

Best deal for a Leakproof Jar
Man o Man! I have dropped, stepped on and basically abused these jars and they have held up!
Big enough for a trip and VERY washable, great additions to my kit, around the house and even in my car.

The best leakproof container for air travel
These containers were recommended by me by a fellow calligrapher. He uses these for storage of inks and travel. They're leak proof and travels well when flying (allows for air compression/decompression). Also complies with TSA requirements too. They're perfect and can be used straight from a dip pen and into the container. Highly recommend for storage of inks and artists liquid materials.
