Where can I buy those Brown Bugger containers?

So Im from SE Michigan and have been caching for 4 years now. I’ve found many caches that use those micro “Brown Bugger” containers with the screw on cap and O-ring. I want to purchase some for myself but cant find them any where! Do they go by a different name? Someone help me out here



There are a couple sizes here, sold in bulk (you get a lot of them).  0.5ml and 2ml free standing tubes seem to have the same basic form, just that 2ml has more internal capacity.  These are super tiny, but I might have to check them out again.  When I started Geocaching, I only bought a handful of similar transparent screw-type tubes, but someone was always dropping and losing the caps.  Often that was me.  But I'd try it again with more spares this time.

Thank you all for helping me out! I just didn’t realize they're so expensive for a pack of 500… I mean I really don't need THAT many, maybe just like 50, so I don’t think im ready to spend $100 on 500 tubes.


If you've seen a lot of  particular style of container, some local cacher may have a lot of them.  You might be able to arrange a trade.


Keep an eye in ebay for an acceptable deal.  I bought a box of 500 50ml tubes (about the size of a match tube or preform) for $25, and 1000 of the 1.5ml tubes as HHL posted, for $20.  I thought I'd be using the 1.5ml tubes for Swag creations, but haven't gotten around to it.  I'd hate to inflict the flip-top kind upon Geocachers as actual cache containers.


Cover a tube with a themed sticker or other camo, or conceal it well, and it doesn't matter so much if it's not brown.  And a huge box of decent-sized tubes means I always have a source for a new Micro, or a replacement, when an idea strikes.  There's something to be said for a lifetime supply. :anicute:
