Travel Containers

When you travel or go camping, you want to save room in your luggage for all the necessary things. However, there are certain necessities which take up too much space, and you might end up leaving them at home or bringing them with no comfort.

Inventors of silicone products seem to understand well about this difficulty people encounter, so they make it easy for everybody in demand by creating light weighted, collapsible and also food grade silicone travel containers. Now, you can bring all the things needed and they take much less room in your luggage. That is nice, isn’t it?

In this article, I would like to present information of necessary travel containers which are convenient in many cases, according to my experience in using them.

Travel Size Bottles Made Of Silicone

Now that someone is going to fly and the rule for liquid container size is 3 oz. They cannot carry an 8 oz tube of lotion, a huge bottle of body wash, shampoo and conditioner on their carry-on-luggage. Also, purchasing a new travel size kit of those necessary things every time they travel might not be a pleasant thing to do. If you are in this situation, what should you do to bring your favorite toiletry liquids but still comply to the airplane rules?

In my opinion, bringing silicone travel bottles is the smartest solution. These bottles are made small enough to be carried on an airplane, they are 3 oz bottles with nice features: very soft, easy to squeeze the content out, airtight, leak proof, reusable and very durable. When you press them together with other items in your bag, don’t worry because the liquid won’t spill out of the bottle.

Silicone Toiletry Bags Keep Your Items Dry

Well, no matter what means of transportation you are using to travel and what kind of trip is being taken, you still have to bring your personal toiletry stuff. Sometimes it is frustrating if your personal items get wet due to the rains or any incident. According to my experience, a silicone toiletry bag is good for keeping the contents in it dry just in case since it is waterproof. Therefore, it is one of the best travel containers.

A silicone bag is a little heavier than a plastic or fabric one, but it is used much more efficiently for travel and home use.

Silicone Backpacking Bowls For Camping

When going camping, I always tend to reduce my packing as much as I can, but want to make sure the things packed must be necessary. Among my camping items, bowls and plates are indispensable but they are bulky, heavy and fragile if they are made of ceramic or glass. That is inconvenient for bringing them on a camping trip, of course.

Why are silicone backpacking bowls a good idea for camping?

  • Light weighted: That is one of the features that makes you consider these bowls.
  • Collapsible: Saves plenty of space.
  • Air-tight: Tight lids keep your foods and drinks hot or cold longer.
  • Unbreakable when being moved.
  • Safe/ Food graded: Not like plastic or rubber, silicone bowls are food graded which mean they don’t contain any chemicals that can leach into foods, so they are safe and don’t leave stains on.

Are Silicone Kettles Collapsible?

I would like to mention camping again in this section. If coffee or tea is a drink which you cannot miss a day, then you will need to pack a kettle, cups, and a coffee maker. However, those are not something you can compress in a backpack with many other items. In this case, will you still want to have them on a trip?

I would still pack a tea/ coffee maker set, but it would be made by silicone. There are silicone kettles, coffee filters and cups which are collapsible sold in a lot online market platforms. I was amazed at how convenient they are for campers. Silicone kettles have a stainless steel base, so they are fine to be used over a gas or an electric cooker. After being collapsed, it will be only 2.5 inch high and very light, so you can just press it in your backpack, which is really neat.

If you like strong black coffee, you can bring a silicone coffee filter to make your own coffee.

Now you can boil water to make your favorite drinks in the jungle to enjoy. Silicone cups, kettles and coffee filters are useful for campers and backpackers.

Silicone Food Storage Bags

As I wrote in the previous article, silicone is heat-resistant and also highly capable of being frozen. Silicone food storage bags are food safe, non-toxic, chemical-free, ecology-friendly, and totally fine in a dishwasher, can be used in extremely hot water, in a microwave, in an oven or in super cold temperatures. They are also recommended for travel containers.

When we use containers for foods, we are usually very careful because we don’t want to eat poison leaching out from food containers. However, silicone storage bags are food graded, air tight sealed and reusable, not like plastic bags. They are good for food storage and lunch packing. They are supposed to keep foods, fruits and vegetables fresh longer.

Silicone Backpacks For Children

Little children can ruin their school bags quickly if their bags are not made long-lasting. With a silicone backpack, they will use it for a long time because silicone can’t be torn easily.

Silicone backpacks really impress me by their quality and appearance. They are the cutest bags that I have ever seen. Not only are they used for school, but for any other occasions as well.

I believe children love how silicone backpacks look. This kind of bags can’t go wrong for kids who don’t tend to protect their property very well because the bags are very strong and durable.

My Closing

In short, new inventions make our lives easy and silicone products are certainly very helpful in many ways as described in this article and the previous ones.

What we should know is silicone is safe, long-lasting, light weighted, food graded, collapsible, heat-resistant, waterproof, easily wiped, convenient and so on. If you wish to know more about certain silicone products, please navigate the articles on the right side bar for more details.

  1. I love the whole idea of silicone food containers. It is so much better than plastic, what makes these really interesting to me is that these silicone food containers are collapsible. I like that you mention that they are heat proof as well, this is so important when you store food. I know some plastic containers can get damaged from heat and I would imagine them releasing toxins in the food.
    I would have loved some pictures of them to see how they work and what they look like. Have you got any pictures of these?
