GoToob Squeezable Travel Tube by Humangear
Humangear - GoToob Squeezable Travel Tube Sky Blue - 3 oz. (88 ml)
Humangear GoToob is the civilized, smart, squeezable tube for traveling, outdoors and more. Typical travel bottles are hard plastic canisters that pay no attention to the human experience at hand. The award-winning GoToob is made from soft yet rugged silicone, so it's easy to squeeze and dispense the product right away. A special, "no-drip" valve helps the cap stay clean. A window in the collar identifies popular contents. Rotate the window to "Soap," "Lotion" and more - tighen the cap to lock in the setting.
A large opening means it's easy to fill and clean your GoToob. The small 1.25 oz. size slips easily into pockets, bags, purses and other tight spots. The medium 2 oz. size features a handy suction cup that can briefly attach to walls for moments when you need your hands free. And a large 3 oz. size gives you maximum volume for longer times between refills.
All GoToobs are approved for airplane carry-on, they're food-safe (FDA) and are 100% BPA-free and PC-free. They are also covered by their lifetime warranty.

What's the Big Idea?
Humangear was started by an independent product designer. They know how challenging it can be to get a good idea in front of the right people. While they have their own in-house design team constantly working on new products they also know that they're not going to have all the good ideas. You, the end user, are just as likely to have a great idea because you're the one out in the field, using products, seeing unmet needs, and envisioning ways to address those needs and create a better experience.
So, Humangear is certainly open to working with independent consumers, designers and inventors who have compelling outdoor and travel accessory product ideas. They are working to establish a simple, straightforward process to do this. They hope to have more details about this process up in the near future. (Be patient, and please wait to submit your idea until they've got this system in place.)
In the meantime, they would encourage you to keep working on your ideas. Observe people using outdoor and travel gear. Ask yourself: What's missing? What could be better? How could I make the experience of using that product amazing? Sketch your ideas, make prototypes, test in the field. Repeat, repeat, repeat. The capCAP was a simple idea at first, but they went through many iterations and prototypes before they settled on a final design. Always remember - the human comes first!
Located in San Francisco, CA, Humangear was founded in 2007 with a mission to develop "real gear for real humans." At Humangear, they 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.
They also spend a lot of time getting our hands dirty. They think if a picture is worth a thousand words, a prototype is worth many thousand pictures. Humangear is passionate about creating remarkable and responsible products that, at least in some small way, make the world a better place.

Rotate collar to "Soap," "Sun," "Lotion," etc. Tighten cap to lock.
Large opening for easy filling and cleaning. Food-safe/BPA-free
Tube/Collar: dishwasher safe (top rack only)
Flip-cap: hand-wash in warm, soapy water.
Bag it for insurance:
GoToobs won't leak under normal circumstances. However, accidents can happen. Those luggage handlers can sometimes be brutal, caps don't get tightened fully, etc. Humangear recommends you always put GoToobs in a sealed "Ziplock" style bag for insurance against unfortunate "Murphy's Law" episodes.
Not a toy. Supervise children. Works with most fluids.
GoToob Fluid Compatibility
The GoToob is made of high-purity, FDA food-safe silicone. Silicone is one of the safest and most inert materials in common commercial use (heck, baby bottle nipples are made from the stuff!). It's not a cheap material, but we decided to use silicone for the fantastic performance and safety it affords.
However, no material is completely impervious. The GoToobs work great with thousands of different fluids. Very rarely, a fluid can react with the silicone, affecting the silicone of the valve or tube, altering the fluid, or both. Whenever we learn of a fluid that reacts with the GoToob, we post it here for reference.

Great travel container; nice blue color and I like that the tube is made from silicon and the plastic lid is BPA free. Easy to fill and easy to dispense, though alot of product can come out too fast if you are not careful in squeezing the tube. Good for shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotions, and even expensive face moisturizers. Definitely the best travel container I have found, and LuckyVitamin has the best price, selection, ease of ordering, and customer service. Glad I made the purchase!
