    The ones with the bag made from aluminized Mylar are about as impermeable as glass.

    Some of the box wines taste like developer (or at least stop bath), so you do need to label. But some (try Fish Eye) aren't too bad.

    They are also called "cubitainers". I have a couple 20 L ones that I use for mixing 5 L of XTOL as I don't have any containers that big.

    I subject my self to boxed wine, so I have lots of leftovers for developer. It keeps very well in them. Years, IME, because there is no air contact if you squeeze out the air after filling. Nice and compact and built-in spout too. You can't pour back in for replenishing, so I only use them for paper developer now.
    f/22 and be there.

    You can fill them, but not pour back? Could you explain on that.

    It is just slightly more to buy them pre-filled with a different liquid, boxed wine.

    Drink the wine wash out the bag and re-use, works great.

    You have to take the inner bag out of the cardboard box, tip them up, yank the spout out, and pour the liquid in without spilling anything, and then squeeze the air back out. It's not terribly difficult but it's too inconvenient to do this every time you develop. It's better to use a bottle or something. It's fine for chemicals that you just fill it up and then use all up.

    I use bag in a box for Xtol. Works like a charm and I've said so often right here. I get mine for free from a friend who drinks wine in a box.

    ps: GOOGLE water storage bladders in the US. 1 gallon size in the range of $5. The spigot is easily removed and replaced for refilling.

    The wine industry is great at providing us technology for preservation. I use this stuff: http://is.gd/9AdVG. It's a spray mix of nitrogen, CO2, and argon.
