Durable, don't leak & work well at high altitudes-- in my experience!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have had good luck, traveling with these Gotoobs. They work well at high altitudes, if you pack 'em correctly! (read further) The suction cups work well, in my experience. Have not broken any of my Gotoobs--yet, even though I frequently drop them, and often toss them 10 or 20 feet, from the shower into the sink, when I am in a hurry to shower, pack, and check out of a hotel.
If your Gotoobs are leaking after travel by airplane, I recommend trying this: Don't fill the Gotoob completely full. Fill it only to perhaps 80% to 90% of capacity. Before closing the Gotoob, squeeze out as much air as possible. (Gotoobs are very flexible and easy to squeeze.) After taking the precaution to squeeze out air, your Gotoob will not swell as much at altitude, and the 10% to 20% of slack space will let your Gotoob expand, without popping its top.
Only drawback to Gotoobs is that labels don't stick very well to the silicone plastic. A felt tip marking pen does not seem to work either, except on the white plastic caps. But ink on the hard, white plastic will still eventually rub off. On the soft silicone "toob" portion, "magic marker" ink dries, but does not adhere, at all. The dried ink easily rubs off the silicone toob, as a black powder, onto fingers and clothes.
For a more permanent label, the best that I have found is a Jokari Freezer Sticker, placed on the top of the cap.

Has anyone found a better way to permanently mark these Gotoobs?

You can use a label maker. These stay on the white lids well. Plus they are easy to see in the shower without your reading glasses.

I would love to see a) a hotel room where the shower is 20 feet from the sink; and b) you toss one 20 feet and land it in the sink :)

It was a very large and strangely designed motel suite, on the ground floor. The bathroom was as large as the bedroom, with no doors between, just open floor plan. I asked at the desk, why? They told me it was for handicapped, wheelchair access. You could practice a 30 foot toss.

LOL, I hate that I can't read the labels in the shower, so I clearly mark S for shampoo, C: conditioner, etc. I can write that initial LARGE. :D

Since they come in different colors, use the color of the tube as a "code" for what is in it.
