    I agree these look to be perfect! I'll have to order a case.

    I am going to put in an out and out plug here. I love glass. Easy to clean. Never a doubt as to permeability. After extensive comparison shopping I found this site to have the best prices on glass bottles. You don't have to buy hundreds at a time and their shipping prices are pretty low. Check 'em out. I have NO connection with this supplier.

    Glass breaks when dropped not only destroying the bottle and scattering glass but spilling the contents. I've not used glass but might, though I'm occasionally clumsy enough for this to be a concern.

    I remember the mess a gallon jug of developer made when it basically fell off a 3 foot high counter in a high school darkroom and exploded on the concrete floor. No thanks. Wet rubber gloves have no grip on glass bottles, and PET plastic bottles will bounce, not shatter.

    What about dipping glass bottles in that vinyl dip?? There you go... now you've got your weekend all laid out!

    A good proof of the air tightness of the PET bottles can be seen in the adjacent thread (The keeping properties of XTOL).

    All common plastic bottles that I know of admit some oxygen. PET is much better in this regard than HDPE, and I have had no problem storing developer in old pop bottles.

    PET soda bottles are technically pressure vessels, designed not to let gases out as the working pressure can be up to 75psi to keep the fizz in.

    The also don't break when you fill one with 2 liters of water, squeeze the air out and then proceed to pitch it 10-15 feet up in the air and it lands on a frozen brick patio. I gave up after 6 attempts.

    Squeezability is key... the oxygen-proof nature of glass is meaningless if you've got air at the top.

    I thought Rodinol could be stored in an open container for 29 years.
