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.

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.

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.

Great product!

I love the tube. I had been complaining that they should package peanut butter in a toothpaste tube because I like to have peanut butter to eat with apples, on crackers, etc... for snacks. I keep this in my desk at school and in my car for pick-me-ups. I don't have any problem whatsoever getting the clip on or cleaning the tube!

Nice in my opinion.

This is my toothpaste tube. It's much bigger than the Aurelle Toob Brush's toothpaste tube. hard sided bottle and those humangear bottle's are just for liquid and soft gels. This thing can store peanut butter so it can store toothpaste. I love this thing. I only use it for toothpaste by the way.

I've been using these for years. I fill them with hair care products. They have never leaked and I've had the first one break on me after7 years: the cap cracked. The crimp sealer is a bit hard to get on right, but once it's on, it stays on.

Really convenient

This a really convenient, light weight, and reusable item for any condiment you can think of. I used mine for peanut butter and nutella.

Just fill the tube, fold the bottom and slide the plastic clip through the folded end. Simple

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).

Negative Reviews:

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.

A big disappointment

We bought these tubes for a backpacking trip that required the use of bear canisters thinking that the tubes would pack into the canisters better than jars of peanut butter. Knowing that we had to pack very tightly to get everything in, I filled the tubes and placed the clip on. Then I squeezed them to see what would happen under pressure and the clips popped right off. Then I found out that it is very hard to clean the last bits of peanut butter out and also very hard to wash the tubes. I'm glad we tried them before the trip or it may have been very messy.

Not as good in use as it is in theory

These are OK up to a point. The tube shape is sort of awkward and doesn't pack well, so it's not that good for extended trips where space is a consideration. And if you don't get the end-clip on tightly it can come off, sometimes unexpectedly - which if you've packed it with peanut butter, can be a real mess. You're better off with a jar-type container with a secure screw-off lid. It's also hard to clean gooey contents, at the end of the day. On the plus side, they're cheap and light.

Not good for backpacking

The other reviewers are dead on. This product is horrible. You can insert your product (which was peanut butter in my case), but the whole roll-up construction is terrible. There is no seal and the clip constantly falls off. It was easier to leave the cap on and squeeze the contents out the end of the tube, which made everything messy. I'd suggest going with a flip top container. Don't waste your money on these.

It seemed like a good idea...

This sounded like such a fantastic product, but I have never managed to push the clip all the way onto the end of the tube and so have never been able to use mine. :o(

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.
