Air Reduction Storage Bottle (33.8 oz) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fluid Dynamics :) As another reviewer mentioned, If the bottle is empty then it will slowly expand. But if there is liquid in it, it won't expand. The reason for this is the accordion action is always trying to expand the bottle. Air is compressible (expandable in this case) so the bottle can expand, creating a lower density of air inside.It should only expand a small amount though. If it is filled with liquid and the air is pushed out it won't expand. Liquids can not be compressed. But if air is actually getting into the bottle then I think the cap is a little leaky. However, if there is liquid right up to the top it helps to seal the cap. And I've written too much....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They work just fine There's another review suggesting that air leaks in when you tighten the lid and leave it for a few hours, rendering the collapsible feature worthless. Well, it's true, sort of. I don't know what laws of physics, fluid dynamics, magic, or whatever cause this to be the case, but air ONLY leaks in to the bottles when they're completely empty. I bought two of these, and they both behave in exactly the same manner. As long as I have SOMETHING in the bottle, even if it's only 150mL of liquid, it will stay fully collapsed until you open it, even if it's weeks later. Empty the bottle, and it will suck in air and expand in a matter of hours. Not being able to store the bottles in their collapsed state when empty is admittedly a little inconvenient, which is why I docked a star, but when it comes to remaining collapsed when it counts, minimizing the chemistry's contact with air, it does the job admirably. I hope that other reviewer eventually figured it out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not seal well I bought one to try out. I collapsed the bottle and put the lid on and after a couple hours, air leaked in and filled the bottle. I tried several times, however I cannot tighten the lid enough to seal it so air does not get in. I'll not buy another one.
