Nalgene Travel Kit Medium
The Nalgene Travel Kit Medium is the perfect set to allow you to neatly and efficiently travel without having to leave all your necessary lotions, shampoos, etc. at home. Because most of the bottles in this kit are larger than 3 oz., Nalgene recommends the Small Kit for those people who need bottles small enough to safely and legally transport their essential toiletries through airport security.
Included in this Medium kit is:
1 oz. jar, 2 oz. jar, 1 oz. round bottle, 2 oz. square bottle (qty 2), 4 oz. round bottle (qty 2), 4 oz. rectangular bottle, 4 oz. round bottle (qty 2), dispensing caps (qty 2) that fit the 4 oz. round bottles.
The items in this kit are made of sturdy HDPE, PP and PETG. A selection of (6) guaranteed leakproof, durable bottles with independent screw-on caps and (2) storage jars that are dishwasher safe (top rack). Nalgene has very high standards when it comes to calling a container leakproof. They fill up the container and the pressurize it. If it does not leak they consider it to pass the test and be worthy of being called leakproof. They test the jars by filling them with water and then turning them upside down. If no water comes out they consider the jar to pass the test. So jars will hold liquid but they are not held to as high a standard as the bottles. The jars may be a better choice for thicker liquids such as lotions or gels. And of course they are great for Tums, or Advil.
The main material used in the jars is HDPE. It is:
- Sturdy and reliable
- Dishwasher Safe (top rack only)
- Withstands temperatures from -100ºC (-148ºF) to 120ºC (248ºF)
Back in 1949, a Rochester, New York chemist named Emanuel Goldberg developed the first plastic pipette holder. Along with three workers, he began the Nalge Company in a small building at 625 South Goodman Street. For years Goldberg and his growing team developed the Nalgene line of state-of-the-art polyethylene laboratory equipment: centrifuge bottles, filter units, storage tanks. Obviously, it wasn’t the kind of stuff you toss into your backpack for a weekend in the woods. But there were rumors floating around … stories about scientists taking the smaller, more convenient bottles out of the lab and using them on hikes and excursions.By the 1970s this “unofficial” use for Nalgene bottles caught the eye of Marsh Hyman (President of the Nalge Company in Rochester, New York).
At Nalgene, there all about helping people simplify their lives while respecting the environment. That’s why they created reusable containers of all kinds, made from a wide range of materials to suit your personal preferences, needs and lifestyle. So whether you’re looking for a virtually indestructible drinking bottle for a backcountry adventure, or you want a clean, green way of storing your dry pasta, you’ll find a Nalgene product that gets the job done.
