On 9/26/2006 the TSA modified its ban on liquids. Travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic, zip-top bag. We recomend checking http://www.tsa.gov since the rules seem to change often.
The containers in the Nalgene Small Travel Kit meet the new requirements. Made of sturdy HDPE, PP and PETG. A selection of (4) guaranteed leakproof, durable bottles with independent screw-on caps and (2) storage jars. Dishwasher safe (top rack).
Nalgene have 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. Nalgene 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.
