    What I repeatedly encountered though has been the caps breaking. Just so, not due to falling.

    The caps are from PE or PP and tear at the corner between the top and the threaded part where the rim of the bottle hits the top of the cap. Most probably due to excessive force.
    I have found caps with varying thicknesses at this part.

    Get a car? or a buddy to drive you, I think places like this would expect you to have a car or transportation, I mean, how do you expect to get the prints back home safely without damaging them? Walking with a bunch of chemicals and print paper is probably not something they designed in their sales model as it's honestly just silly to do. Then again what do I know.. lol

    I think JOBO bottles would be the most convenient. They are very sturdy, are not prone to leak and are square, so they will fit very snuggly together in your backpack or a carry bag. I know that's what I would use. And yes, I would just pour enough stock into each one so that when I arrive all I have to do is to top them off with water, shake and pour into the tray or the printing drum. If you use stock concentrate, then even the temperature is of no issue since you'll be mixing with warm water on site.
