    How to carry Chamois Cream on long rides?

    I would prefer not to carry a whole container of my chamois cream on 200K+ rides. I am assuming I am not alone. How do others carry enough to reply at a control without carrying the whole container?

    Carry some in an empty container.

    Those are nice.
    I carry changes of kit w/ wet wipes & required unguents in pre-packs.
    Quick clean-off, fresh kit and Go w/ soiled kit quickly re-packed.
    Very efficient for long/wet days on self-supported rides.

    I just carry a little tube of Ozonol, which goes into a plastic ziplock bag in my handlebar bag with things like my wetwipes, etc. so that I can grab that ziplock bag and go into the toilet and take care of whatever I need to take care of.

    You can find some in handy packets, such as

    Chamois Butt'r's products come in individual use packets. I've found them quite handy.

    I use either Chamois Butt'r or Bag Balm carried in a 35mm film container. I've been putting it in my saddle bag for years. So far, it's never come open.

    REI has a lot of small containers (like this) if you have a store near you. I have a lot of these Endurolyte holders, which aren't an ideal solution but would do the trick. There are also a ton of little pill containers like this that would work.

    I use the smaller version of that REI container. Two of them -- one for sunscreen, one for chamois cream. It's several applications of sunscreen and one application of chamois cream. Both go into a ziplock in case of leakage.
