The perfect backcountry storage bottle

 

Looking for a small plastic bottle for food storage, and want a light weight, super-tough food grade plastic, a bomber non-leaking cap, and don’t want to pay $2-3 for a mini Nalgene?

Check out Gerber baby juice bottles (about $1.99 for a 4 pack as of 2018) in the baby food aisle at the supermarket.

Drink the juice if you like, but the great plastic bottles are the real score. I use them for olives, olive oil, sports drink mix, and espresso brought from home.

The empty 4 oz. bottle weighs just 21 grams.
