When we last left my travel bottles adventures, I was stuck between a set of really expensive bottles and a set that couldn’t even make it out of the store without opening. I am really drawn to the silicon bottles because they seem really easy to use. Recently, I was wandering around a CVS (as I tend to do) and came across a new set of travel bottles that retailed at $2.99 each, GoGear Travel Tubes. This seemed like a steal!
I figured I should test one out before getting all three (as my last adventure told me). I decided I was already going to pay for one of them, no matter what I ended up doing to it. So I tried as hard as I could to get the bottle to pop or leak. Nothing happened. So I bought three total to use for my shampoo, conditioner and body wash for my next trip. They came in 3 oz and 2 oz, so I purchased two 3s and one 2. I paid $8.67 for the three, pre-tax.
These bottles ended up being very easy to fill, but surprisingly difficult to get into a one-quart plastic bag. The silicon containers adhered to the plastic bag, so I had to continually peel the tubes off the bag as I worked them in. Also, since they are so wide, they only fit in the bottom part of the bag.
Since that picture looks like I couldn’t fit much else into the bag, here’s the other side:
I probably could have fit one more travel sized item in there, or possibly two if I struggled with the GoGear a little more. I just didn’t have that much I needed to bring. I have a face wash, face lotion, exfoliant, and toothpaste in there with the GoGear.
I didn’t quite trust the GoGear yet, so I threw the quart bag into a gallon bag.
And I traveled. The bag got squished multiple times by my laptop, shoved under the seat in front of me, and overall mildly abused and yet…
These tubes were great to use too. The contents came out easily, and I didn’t have to worry about wasted shampoo being stuck at the bottom of the bottle. I will be using these every time I travel now.
Later one, we switched hotels. I didn’t feel like carry most my carry-on, so I shoved it all into my suitcase. This involved mild suit-case sitting, and the GoGear still survived!
GoGear is available on Amazon.com for about three dollars more than I paid, so I recommend checking out a CVS if you are interested in buying.
