I`ll start off with one. I see a lot of the ultralight sites these days selling small dropper bottles in the idea that we can reduce the size/weight of liquids that most of us must carry such as bug dope,soaps,and aqua-mira. these and many other weight saving bottles are available in local stores with products we use regularly, such as eye drops. The tops of these bottles pop out and can be after emptied used for other products. Especially nice when I see the dual bottles for sale at ultraligfht sites for as much as 8.00$ and shipping x-tra.
