    Looking for a 100ml water bottle

    I've discovered that one thing that helps my ears with plane flights is to drink several small sips of water during takeoff and landing. I could buy water at the airport, or take an empty bottle and fill it, but I'd really like to find a water bottle small enough to take through security--that way I won't have to worry about remembering to get water once I'm at the airport. I've been doing some searching and have found some small cute water bottles, but nothing small enough to put in a 3-1-1 bag (needs to be 100ml/3.4oz or smaller).

    Do you have any ideas? I've also been looking at little bottles meant to hold travel shampoo and such, but the ones I've seen have had flip-top lids and I feel like any sort of complication to the lid will make it more likely that the bottle will leak.
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

    Nalgene has a 2 oz bottle, in narrow or wide mouth. Not 3oz, but leakproof!

    Greetings,
    REI has several sizes of the Nalgene bottles. I've linked to a search results page at REI. The 4 Ounce bottle is just barely over the size you requested, at 118.2 ml.
    https://www.rei.com/search?q=Travel+containers

    If you fill the bottle after going through security, the size will not matter. I usually buy a bottle of water to sip while I wait to board, so I use it to fill my 8 or 12 ounce small water bottle. It's a kids size water bottle I got at REI.

    Please let us know what you decide to use. Thanks! elisa

    I can vouch for the Nalgene wide mouth leakproof 1 and 2 ounce bottles. I have them as part of my travel kitchen and travel pharmacy, carrrying olive oil, vinegar, and cough syrup. They have a simple screw on lid. Itís a shame they donít seem to make the exact 100ml size but two 60ml/2oz ones might work.

    I laughed at this! They've been making those same Nalgene bottles way before the TSA/liquids battle even began, you know?!

    Thatís a relief! Must just be a UK thing. I havenít been able to find 100ml in the Wide Mouth HDPE range at my local outdoors shop or online. For some reason I cannot find that size. They have every other one!

    After some more searching I happened across these glass bottles, and I'm going to give them a try because they're 3 ounces and almost exactly the height of a 3DCOC (which I use for my 3-1-1 bag) so it should be an efficient use of space. I'm a little nervous about them being glass, but they look sturdy in the photo. I'll try to remember to report back! If these don't work out, I'll try 60ml Nalgene bottles. Thanks, all!

    (Also, I'm moving this thread to Not About Bags because on second thought it really belongs there rather than in Packing Lists and Travel Tips.)

    I've used the bottles on one trip and so far they're working great. They are rather heavy, being thick glass, but they're quite sturdy. I drank one 3-oz bottle during ascent and almost finished the second bottle during landing, so it seems to be just the right amount. (Though maybe I'll want more or less water on other trips; that remains to be seen.)

    A used contact lens bottle might work, just might take a while to fill.

    Listerine Mouthwash Total Care 100mL

    Lid is very much leakproof Smilie

    Here in Australia, travel sized plastic Listerine bottles are available in pharmacies and supermarkets.

    Iíve sent a 100ml glass flask with a friend and they were told to empty it or risk having it taken. So even if itís officially 100ml it still might not make it through. YMMV.

    Of course I donít know what happened in that case but when the 3oz/100ml rule was brought in, it was usually advised to have a container that very clearly said 3oz or 100ml on it.

    So when I bought the glass bottles on Amazon it stated that they were embossed with 100ml on them. Unfortunately they arrived with no markings at all.

    I ended up buying 60ml bottles because they are unquestionably allowed
