PLASTIC BOTTLES v PLASTIC JARS

Plastic containers of course had to be in the line up.

Our personal favorite on the team?

While the practice of using gallon jugs as weights is not uncommon for outdoor items, these plastic bottles can also be used for various applications, They are made of FDA compliant HDPE plastic so they can also store food products. These plastic containers also have easy pour mouths that additionally works for food products such as milk. That's why they can work as milk jugs too.
