    Empirical evidence in using the Freestyle accordion bottles shows no real world issues. I've even used year old XTOL from one without issues. In theory they allow air, in practice it's not going to matter at the rate we use chemicals typically. Conversely it is going to matter much more if one doesn't use a collapsible container. Trucking around a bunch of 500ml bottles is one way, but it's more hassle than needed.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I too favour glass bottles and keep bulk stocks of in 1 and 2 litre sizes. They are easy to keep clean and I label them with a brother tape label maker.

    I favor glass bottles. Most of mine are 750ml that I had to emputy first. They look good on the darkroom shelf too. Vacuum stoppers seem to extend shelf life.

    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.
