Introducing the GoToob+, the new standard in silicone bottles.
The first GoToob was the original, patented soft travel bottle, and it set the standard in this category for a decade. While others have been busy trying to copy the original GoToob, we’ve been busy making something even better.
Small, medium, and large are available in all colors. X-Large is available in clear, blue, and green. Pre-packaged 3-packs are available in three-color assortments.
NEW: Our new “Summer of Love” rainbow GoToob+ is available in very limited quantities. It’s only available in the Medium (2.5 oz) size until stock runs out. See the first slide show under the humangear GoToob+ video (below) for an image of the rainbow GoToob+.
As with all humangear products, the GoToob+ comes with a lifetime warranty.
The civilized, squeezable travel tube.
The new GoToob+ keeps the features people love: it’s still made from soft, rugged silicone that’s easy to squeeze and gets every last drop out; the small, medium, and large sizes are still air travel approved (TSA); and all four sizes are food-safe (FDA). But the GoToob+ also offers a bunch of new features that no other soft travel bottle in the world has.
The GoToob+ features a new, larger opening making it both easier to fill and clean. The bases of all the GoToob+ tubes have been contoured so that they can now stand up easily for even easier filling. There are larger size indicators on the silicone (making the size clearer to TSA agents so you can breeze through security), not to mention the tubes come in new shapes, sizes, and colors. And we haven't even told you about our patent-pending LoopLock[TM] yet.
The GoToob+ collar has our exclusive LoopLock, which makes it almost impossible to accidentally open the cap, further reducing the chance of any leakage. The LoopLock can also be used to hang the tube from a hook or clip it to the outside of a pack. There’s also a textured area on the collar where you can write in the contents with a permanent marker - the texturing helps the ink stay in place and prevents it from being rubbed off.
The small 1.7 fl. oz. size slips easily into pockets, bags, purses, and other tight spots. The small 1.7 fl. oz. size, medium 2.5 fl. oz. size, and large 3.4 fl. oz. size are all TSA carry-on approved. Going on a super long trip and need lots of lotion for those hard-working hands? humangear is now offering a 6 fl. oz. size as well.
New, large size indicators on the tubes make their sizes clear to TSA agents, to help you breeze through security. All GoToob+ are 100% BPA-free, PC-free, and Phthalate-free. They are also covered by our lifetime warranty.

Tips and FAQ
Bag it for insurance:
GoToob+ tubes won't leak under normal circumstances; however, accidents can happen. Those luggage handlers can sometimes be brutal, caps don't get tightened fully, etc. We recommend that you always put your tubes in a sealed "Ziplock" style bag for insurance against unfortunate "Murphy's Law" episodes.
Broken cap, damaged tube, or other issue?
Has a wild elephant stormed through your bathroom, stepped on a GoToob+, and broken the cap? Have you accidentally cut your tube with a sharp Ginsu knife right after cutting through a soda can? These things happen. We stand behind our products--everything we make comes with a lifetime warranty.
Please contact us if you have problems with your GoToob+. Please be sure to provide your mailing address.
I only want to dispense a small amount of the fluid I put in my GoToob+, but a lot of the fluid comes out. What can I do?
The GoToob+ has been designed to work with a wide range of fluids--from soft food products to thin liquid soaps. This means that the valve has been designed to dispense a wide range of viscosities. We find that the best way to get a small amount of a thin fluid is to squeeze the tube quickly--the longer the squeeze, the longer the valve is open and thus the more fluid dispensed.
What are the care and cleaning instructions for GoToob+?
The tubes and collars are dishwasher safe (top rack only). The flip caps can be hand-washed in warm, soapy water.
Can a part of my GoToob+ be replaced under the lifetime warranty?
Yes. In your warranty request email, please let us know what has happened and what part needs to be replaced.
Is it true that humangear celebrates Charles Bukowski's birthday as a company holiday?
Yes. We also recognize the Summer Solstice, Halloween, and World Kidney Day.
What happened to the suction cup on the 2 fl. oz. size GoToob?
When redesigning the GoToob, we got feedback from hundreds and hundreds of humangear users and found that the vast majority would prefer a way to hang their GoToobs instead of sticking them to a surface. In designing the LoopLock feature (that allows for hanging), we also wanted the attachment feature to be universal the entire GoToob+ line. While the suction may be gone, you'll find that the LoopLock adds hanging functionality as well as a lock mode that prevents accidental openings and leakage.
Why do some fluids dry up if left in my GoToob+ for months?
These types of reactions can occur because of the porousness of silicone. While some fluids can dry up, this is usually over several months. We've received reports that adding a small amount of water can restore fluids to their normal state. One of the products that tends to evaporate if left in a GoToob+ over a long period of time is Dr. Bronner's soap (since it's so concentrated). The goods news is that adding a bit of water and letting it sit for a few hours will re-liquify this product.
Can I put a Hostess Ding Dong in a GoToob+?
No. But you can put one in a GoTubb!
Are there multiple styles of GoToob?
There are two styles of GoToob--the new GoToob+ (all photos on this page are of the Gotoob+). The GoToob+ has a LoopLock collar, a larger opening and cap, a flat area on the bottom of the tube for hands-free filling, and larger size indicators. For details and images of the original GoToob, please visit this page of our website.
Can I purchase more flip caps?
Yes. Be sure to view the information on the flip cap page to make sure you are purchasing the correct caps (the GoToob+ caps are different than the original GoToob caps, and they are not interchangeable). Click here to purchase caps (*only original GoToob caps available at this time). Please note tubes and collars are not included.
The GoToob+ is made of high-purity, FDA food-safe silicone. Silicone is one of the safest and most inert materials in common commercial use (heck, baby bottle nipples are made from the stuff!). It's not cheap material, but we decided to use silicone for the fantastic performance and safety it affords. However, no material is completely impervious. While the GoToob+ line works great with thousands of different fluids, sometimes a fluid can react, affecting the silicone of a tube, altering the fluid, or both. This is due to reactivity with silicone itself and isn't limited to the specific silicone we use for GoToob+. Also remember that the GoToob+ line is designed for travel, not long-term storage. Some products may change state (dry out or become less viscous) if kept in a GoToob+ for months at a time.
It is a good idea when using any product in a GoToob+ for the first time either to test a small amount overnight or to pack the GoToob+ in a leak proof bag for protection. We will happily replace your GoToob+ with a new one if there are any issues, but we can't say the same for whatever else you packed in your suitcase!
While the range of chemicals used in modern cosmetic and personal care products makes comprehensive compatibility testing impossible, we have consistently noticed problems with the following chemical groups/product types and recommend against using them in a GoToob+:
-Alcohols (Note: Alcohols may be present in many cosmetic products, including make-up remover, mouth wash, astringent, hair serum, aftershave, and insect repellent).
-Salicylic Acid (most often used in acne treatments).
-Hair serums and treatments (detanglers, relaxers, volumizers, polishers, smoothers, shine serums, etc.) including shampoos and conditioners designed to add shine or luster to hair as well as products with Argan Oil (like Moroccan hair oil).
-DEET-based insect repellents.
-Sterile products. Note: Even though sterile products may be fully compatible with silicone, GoToob+ are not sterilized. Therefore, we don't recommend GoToob+ for use with fluids where sterilization may be an issue, such as contact lens solution. This includes liquid or semi-liquid prescription medications.
-Caustic, corrosive, or flammable products. Note: Many household chemicals are sold in specifically designed plastic or glass containers specified by the manufacturer and should never be decanted. GoToob+ were designed for personal care or food items you may need while traveling--not bleach, drain cleaner, fire-starters, or hydrochloric acid.
Recommend Testing First
The following products are compatible with the GoToob+ in most cases. However, we've heard of problems in some cases when using these products and recommend testing a small amount in a GoToob+ overnight before general use or travel.
-Personal lubricants (non-silicone based).
-Liquid sweeteners (especially Stevia).
-Sunscreen and tanning lotions.
-Skin conditioning oil formulations.
Note: You will know if your fluid is incompatible if it leaks, changes the shape or color of the silicone tube, evaporates from the tube, or dries up shortly after being put in the tube. Most reactions occur overnight; this is why we recommend an overnight trial run with a new product.
