    Cubitainers look like they would fit the bill, but googling only came across specialty companies selling with a huge price tag- one site wanted $83 for a 1 gallon container.

    Anyone know any reasonable source for these?

    I think that Freestyle sells some chemicals already in these boxes. I seem to recall seeing this in the catalogue.

    If you use them, don't store them in your wine cellar, with the regular box wine....LOL

    sprint photochemistry comes in 1 L bottles and larger cubes like you are talking about. they have been selling their photochemistry like this for decades. i think i got some D72 ( solutech?) from the calumet in cambridge mass, in a 5L cube like that 6 or 7 years ago too.

    it keeps well and works well too

    you could contact sprint and find out where they get theirs, or maybe they will sell you some?

    I have used wine bags for keeping dektol stock for up to one month without any problems but I would not use them for long term storage. I get them from restaurants just buy asking for them.

    I'm pretty sure they're aluminized plastic, not mylar. I swear by them.

    There are also water containers used for camping that are collapsible plastic like these. They are not in a box and I've never used them for this purpose. Just a thought.

    Coffee shops here sell coffee by the gallon in these types of aluminumized mylar (I think that's what it is) bag in a cardboard container with a handle. I haven't tried, but I suspect they'd sell a few without the coffee.

    Delta sells 1 gallon bag in boxes specifically for photo chemicals. I had 3 of them, and while the concept is great, at least with the Delta ones, the caps leaked terribly! I just got rid of the three of them in a fire today (every so often I burn all my extra cardboard boxes in a 55 gallon drum outside my house just for that purpose)

    About 20 years ago, I used to buy Ilford paper chemistry in convenient box with mylar bag inside - it was a great easy solution - don't know why they disappeard.
