Where can I find the mini and micro dropper bottles with colored caps?
I have seen the US Plastics link and the one about the Nalgene version.
BUT I am looking for the ones similar to these:
I like that they are white so they are easy to write on and have the colored caps to designate between them.
Side note – can you buy aquamira in larger containers than these?

and the microSep 19, 2011 at 8:03 pm #1781043
I read somewhere about the quality of the bottles not being great. Does anyone have experience with that?Sep 19, 2011 at 10:06 pm #1781085

I haven't heard anything negative about the droppers at arrowhead, but they look exactly like the US Plastic ones I have. It wouldn't surprise me if he buys them there and then up-sells them.Sep 20, 2011 at 7:58 am #1781176

A lot of places do; though a reasonable mark up is, well, reasonable, if that's the case.
Straight from USPlastics is the way to go, though, even with shipping, IME.Sep 20, 2011 at 12:27 pm #1781252Sep 20, 2011 at 12:38 pm #1781256
$3 each is pretty steep I think.
2 mini bottles for repackaging Aquamira
1 micro drop bottle for the mix
Id like to have one extra of both of thoseSep 20, 2011 at 11:32 pm #1781493

I bought a bunch when I ordered from US Plastics…I may have extras in the sizes you need that I could send you. I'll check in the morning for you if you're interested – its too late to be scrounging through backpacking gear right now.Sep 21, 2011 at 6:43 am #1781537
I'd appreciate that, please let me knowSep 27, 2011 at 4:22 pm #1784128

A few days late to the conversation but I would really appreciate to know where you read that? I work really hard to take care of our customers and if someone out there had any trouble I would like to take care of the situation and make it right. PM me the details if you would.
Personally I have never had any trouble with the bottles, I have packed everything from Olive Oil for cooking to hot sauce for my burritos to contact solution, soap samples that we sell in our Tenkara shop and of course fuel for my stove with never a leak.
For anyone that wants to give out quality a test I'll make an offer. PM me for my address, send me a self addressed, postage paid envelope and I'll send 1 free 10cc bottle to try out.

Lots of places to get the colored top ones or plain top ones…BUT
Way back I got some colored ones and used them on one trip…then the next trip I could not remember what I put in what – too many colors to remember – I did not want cross contamination even if I washed them and then repackaged – even 3 different top colors were too many to remember those months later- never mind trying to remember on the trail day to day if maybe one day was crazy long and I was tired and it was dark…
I switched to the plain tops but the sides were clear or white and I wrote on the sides in big letters or used tape. Only the Aqua Mira A and B get different colored tops/bottle for me now and I label them also. Problem solved.
