Only just spotted this thread.

PAJ89, I use old 35mm plastic film containers for my extra Tailwind when Iā€™m running šŸƒšŸ¼ā€ā™‚ļø long distances. There obviously very light & I can get a scoop & a half of Tailwind into each container. Watertight as well.

Those Torq cannisters look great, and definitely a good point about reducing the plastic use. Will take a look for sure and see how that measures up, thanks Hanneke.

Good repurposing of the film containers David!

The Torq containers fit 3 scoops... Worth just buying 5... Use the contents, I did well on it and I am a tricky customer with allergies and sensitivities... Then use the pots forever more :)

Hanneke, I've literally just placed an order for 5 :D Considering its reusable, screw cap (which will be more secure than any other options I'm considering) and very affordable thought I'd just give them a go. Did a little research which suggests the Torq scoop is about 30ish grams, basically the same as the Tailwind scoop. Thanks again for the recommendation!

So an update as the Torq containers arrived: really great little product, unfortunately they are a little smaller than expected as they can only fit about 1.5 scoops of Tailwind (perhaps the scoop/measure info on one or both the sites is a little out of date). However two tubes will equal 3 scoops which is what I was shooting for, and the fact that they are a bit smaller in shape/dimension will make it a bit easier to pack (despite having to carry more tubes overall). Screw top for security is great, easy to wash and reusable is great, so I think I'll probably order a few more tubes. Thanks again for the ideas and suggestions everyone!
