Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok, but there are better options Like everyone else looking for storage containers that were collapsable I tried these out. I have had the bottom clips break on several and they tend to leak with items like honey or liquid soap. I just don't want to have to put my containers into another container to keep my gear clean, or scrape jelly off my fleece again. I have had more success with the flip cap boston round containers, and others of that style that REI carries. On longer trips when I want to carry more I use a 1 liter platypus bag with the pop top for my Dr. Bronners soap. I like the leakproof design of the new Go Toob silicone containers, but they tend to run on the small side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs better quality control. I really like this product (the one that works). Makes spreading peanut butter on (flattened) bagels very easy. I have not had any issues with the end clip coming off when installed correctly (read the instructions), even under pressure. Reusable and fairly easy to clean and fill. However, one tube has a cap that does not have any threads making it useless. So I have two tubes but only one working cap. Regardless of the defective cap, extra caps would be useful. Small objects like caps seem to eventually get misplaced/dropped/lost on longer trips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problem with a tube I bought these to replace a pair that I'd acquired about 40 years ago and had lasted for many years. On the very first use the clip sliced a hole in the tube before I even squeezed out the peanut butter. I cut the tube at the hole and now it is a half inch shorter but still usable. I also used a nail file to smooth the sharp edges of the clips. Suggestion for packing peanut butter: crunchy style does not dispense well so use creamy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for peanut butter Until the mental giants over at Jiff and Peter Pan figure out how to put peanut butter in a tube, I'll continue to use these for backpacking. Loading them up can be a little messy, but after that they work great. Holds more than you would expect. While I've never put liquids in mine, I could see how they might leak a little. The clip is very unlikely to come off if you put it on properly--fold the tail flap over and slide the clip on. The flap wraps around the prong on the clip. It would pretty much have to break to come off. Since peanut butter is not readily water soluable, cleaning can take some time, effort and a lot of hot water. No more often than I use these, I've decided just to stock up and use them once.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked well, to a point... I used them for packaging peanut butter and UL Joe's Moose Goo for backpacking trips. I say used because before a trip I loaded both of them up really full with some Moose Goo. It must have been too much because as I was packing them up before heading out both of the retainers on the back end had broken. I was able to salvage one with copious amounts of electrical tape but the other was worthless. When they weren't overloaded they worked great and I never had a problem with them. But be warned, if you try to pack too much in they could break. Its probably more my fault than the product's but I didn't feel when like I was stressing it that much. I will probably buy more because they are super convenient, but I'll definitely be more sparing in how much I try to pack in it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works like a charm these work leaking or anything like that. keep in mind that the contents may stain the plastic (in my case, i took crushed pepper paste to spice up my meals, and the inside was stained red).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simplicity at its best You're kidding right? People actually had trouble figuring out how to use and clean these? ha ha ha that's funny! I bought my first set of these in 1976, they were called Gerry tubes then and lasted 18 years. I'm getting my third set now. These are the simplest and most convenient way to carry gooey stuff that comes in the type of container you don't want to carry up a mountain. Try cleaning them with one of those drinking glass brushes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great no-mess food container. This was perfect for the food storage I was looking for: a durable and compact way to bring liquid and viscous food into the field. I was planning to use the tube for pancake batter until I realized the shelf life is only a day, but had I done that it would have worked great (it still held enough dry mix for four large pancakes). Still worked great for syrup. A better plan would have been to use one tube for peanut butter and another for jelly: easily the most practical food for this product since it has a medium-wide mouth, a little bigger than a toothpaste tube. I'll be buying more to diversify my menu.
