GoToob Travel Containers

Hi neighbors!

I am writing this one as we travel down the road through OK. We will be in Texas by the end of the day. Most likely this post will go up tomorrow.

I wanted to tell you about GoToobs from humangear. These are great little, extremely flexible tubes you can fill with your favorite shampoo, conditioner, body wash, or lotion. They are the perfect size for a travel. One really nice feature they have is there is a piece around the neck of the bottle that rotates for labeling what is inside.

I personally tire of either having to purchase sample sizes or of carrying full size products on trips. Yes, I know there are travel tubes you can buy for a dollar or two, but I have had them leak or crack on me. You also end up using marker on them to label them. With GoToob, I just twist the collar and they are ready to go!

Another thing I like about the GoToob is that the opening to put your product in is large enough that you are not spilling product all down the outside of the container. The flexibility is great too. They give a little, rather than becoming crushed in you travels. I carry mine in the outside pocket of my suitcase. I have a feeling my GoToobs will be going many places with me.

About humangear:

Located in San Francisco, CA, humangear was founded in 2007 with a mission to develop "real gear for real humans."
At humangear, we spend a lot of time with people -- listening to their feedback, watching them use products, trying to understand their needs, and getting a deep appreciation for the experience at hand.
We also spend a lot of time getting our hands dirty. We think if a picture is worth a thousand words, a prototype is worth many thousand pictures.

There is a compatibility page where you can check a list to make sure what products are safe to place in a GoToob.  If the product is not on that page be sure to do a test run before actually using your product in the GoToob traveling.  All GoToobs are approved as airplane carry-ons.  They are food safe (FDA) and they are BPA and PC free.

From GoToob:
The GoToob is designed to work with a wide range of fluids from shampoos and conditioners to facial cleaners and sunscreen. GoToobs are even made of FDA food-safe silicone so you can put soft food products like peanut butter and yogurt in them. While GoToobs are designed for a range of fluids and soft products, it is still possible that you can find an incompatible fluid. This is why we recommend running a trial on all new products -- try only a small amount of the new product overnight in a safe environment where a possible reaction or leak won't damage anything. If you find a new incompatible fluid, please email us. We will add it to the appropriate list of incompatible fluids, and we will be happy to replace your GoToob if it has been rendered unusable.

Do any of my neighbors have a favorite travel product?  These are one of mine!  One neighbor will receive a small GoToob.  Be sure to enter!  You can find humangear on Facebook.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive some GoToobs for review purposes.  All quotes in red are taken from the GoToob website or email.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.
