I've tried a lot of different bottles, everything I have tried leaks after a little while. Anyone have a good lightweight solution? I'm looking for a container of about 6 ounces in size.

I use an 8 oz spring water bottle - hasn't leaked but then I also always pack it in my CCF cozy

The leak always seems to be from the cap area. my guess is the paper seal eventually gets soaked in the oil and creates the path that the oil leaks through even though I tighten the cap as much as possible. It always seems to happen after I take the cap off at some point during the hike, prior to that the seal always works.

I did some google searches and it looks like this problem is also experienced by others:

I use a small bottle with a flip top on it. I haven't had any leaking problems yet, but I'm normally only out for a few days at a time.

I would second that type of squeeze top. You still have to take care when you fill it to make sure no oil is on the threads, but after that you only have to deal with the squeeze flap, which won't loosen like a lubricated thread top.

olive oil can be virgin, or extra virgin, right?

I just use a small nalgene. If it has the internal lip on it, I've never had one leak.

As long as I close the cap well.

That should work, though heavy. But maybe a light rubber gasket could be added to a screw top PET bottle. For home use, I like those drip-proof openings. Maybe one of those could be fitted to a smaller lighter PET bottle, and it might also keep the threads from getting lubricated.

This is the bottle that I was refering to. Not heavy at all. Available in 4 oz. or 8 oz. $1.50.

I worked as a water plant operator in the 70s. Every container in the lab was made by Nalgene.

Nalgene is the name of a company that has been around a lot longer than their water bottles.

Great bottles and they do not leak. If they have that internal lip that the bottle fits up into. Some of the Nalgene jars don't have that.

That's similar to what I've always used for olive oil....except for the creepy blue gloves part....I'm out for a few days at a time only as well, but this thing stays in my kit in between, so it's got a longer use time than that with a nearly full load.

Hey there sorry to cut in..

this is My first post to a new forum.

Ok I figured what I do with my bottle...its similar to the one in the image. I use a peice of Saran wrap on the top first the screw down the lip.. it creates a gasket in between and wont create issues. Its light weight too and you can take a ft of it folded up if you care. I think anything thicker would mess up threads or cap. then again I usually use film Canisters for everthing. I usually never stay out more than 7 days and They are great. SPices for food. Weatherproofing misc things like asprin etc. hold etc batteries matches .etc. tried pill bottles but no lucks. but do try saran platic wrap see if it helps

Extra virgin oo. First pressing
Vigin oo Second pressing
olive oil no prefix third pressing

thats my culinary ckills raising to the surface. LOL

A man went to the shrink wrapped in Saran Wrap and asked, 'What do you think, doc?

The doctor replied, "I can clearly see you're nuts."

With the bottle that I posted you really don't have to mess with a gasket. Like I said I've never had one leak.

May want to be careful about using film canisters for food products. There are a lot of chemicals on the film and I've seen it recommended that you don't use food products in them. I used them a lot also and quit, when I realized that.

Mac is clearly a major part of BLUE MAN GROUP and likes to squirt the audience with oil.....

Actually most of the flip tops don't leak you can test them in the store give them a squeeze and if the air doesn't come out - you win.... Hope that helps -Sarge.
