I find Nalgene bottles to be much handier than GoToob. I bought my first Nalgene small bottles, years ago.
After the 3-1-1 rule was put in place, I found a store that carried an extensive array of both Nalgene and Go Toob.
Considering the struggles I wage against an almost empty toothpaste tubes and the ease of use of my previous Nalgenes, I bought more of those.

I really like mine Lani! I have 4, but really only use 2 of them. I use one each for shampoo and conditioner because the hotel crap kills my hair. I have had them fall off the shower wall a couple times in the middle of the night, but maybe only 2 or 3 times in the 4 months I've had them. I've never tried dispensing while they are still stuck on the wall, I usually just pull them off and then stick them back on. I'm only at the same place for 2 nights at the most also so they don't have to stick there too long. They are bulky, but they are so easy to fill and don't leak which I love. I've read several different threads about them over on FlyerTalk and the reviews seem hit or miss. I think you either love them or hate them. I definitely couldn't carry more than 3 at one time in my 3-1-1 bag if I wanted room for more stuff, as they do take up quite a bit. I don't pack a TON of stuff in my 3-1-1 bag either so that kind of helps me out.
Mine are new, Lani. I'll try them out and see if I agree with you? I had wondered if the suction cups would actually work. But I was hoping the color-coding would help me keep my shampoo and lotion, etc. straight.

I use the 3 oz size for shampoo and conditioner and the 1 oz for other things like hair styling product. They do have bulky caps, I agree, but they perform better than all the other refillable tube products I have tried, which either leaked, or cracked, or were too rigid to get product out, or couldn't easily be refilled.

I must keep a lookout for Nalgene. Not sure if I have seen them here.
I go to the Origins store and ask them for empty tubes/tubs they use for makeup samples. They are tiny, a great size for things I need small dabs of, like moisturizer.
