This Reusable Travel Bottle Folds Flat

The good thing about the end of a trip: your bag should be somewhat lighter since you’ve used up all the toiletries you packed with you. But, if you brought reusable bottles for all your shampoos/lotions/etc., you still have the same amount of space taken up by the empties. Which is where the Lewis N. Clark Flat Bottle Set comes in—these containers start out flat and expand to fit whatever liquid or cream you put inside.

Price and Where to Buy: Currently $12.49 on Amazon or $19.99 on Lewis N. Clark’s website.

How It Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Reusable bottles are the best for travel—you can bring the products you love, it’s cheaper, and it’s better for the environment. The flat design of these are genius, and we wish we’d thought of this idea before Lewis N. Clark did! Plus, the one-way valve caps make sure that these will never leak.
  • Value: 10/10. The set comes with three bottles of different sizes (all within the 3-1-1 rule), and if you get it on Amazon, it’s only about $4 per bottle. This also includes the reusable, clear pouch they come in.
  • Durability: 9/10. Made from a BPA- and phthalate-free plastic, these will withstand a lot.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. Now I’m thinking of ways to make every travel product I have flat.

Final Verdict: Transform your toiletries kit and save a little space with this handy flat bottle set.
