Roberto, the manager/owner of Lockerroom in Canada, is pretty evasive for obvious reasons, but he said his company is quality focused, has a chemist involved and uses QC practices. He wouldn't tell me any of the ingredients used, but he said an MSDS is available. He said it's useless without knowing techniques, ratios, etc.
He said there is a Lot number on each label around the lid and this tells him if it's his product and when it was made. He verified that my lot H45 was made recently.
It's illegal for him to send any of his poppers to the USA. They've already fined him and put him through the mill.
He assured me that Lockerroom is doing OK and should be around for the foreseeable future.

Have you had any other private conversations recently that you'd like to share with the wider world?

He didn't tell me anything that was confidential. He was very EVASIVE and I'm sure he doesn't care that others are making inferior poppers and that some people prefer those inferior poppers.

Only to be expected. That's why I only ever speak to people about poppers on forums. Looking forward to my Lockeroom delivery this weekend !!!!

@R. Don...I just ordered 3 more bottles...all 30mls....one is hexyl nitrite.

Oh boy, thanks for this feedback.
The hexyl nitrite is exciting! Can't wait.

@Nitritespecialist: Thanks for the info.
Have you tried hexyl nitrite before, or will this be the first time for you?

Hexyl is the worst formula ever, it sucks. Lockerroom make pentyl, available throughout Europe, not a big deal at all. Hexyl arrived only as a result of a proposed US clampdown, truly the worst poppers ever.

@ The Dreadful Flying Glove
Don´t tell crap. The Pentyl (Amyl) the is sold all over Europe hat no effect and it is really rubbish. It smells like pure Pentanol if you know what that is....

@Bundem read what I said! "not a big deal at all"...I said nothing else i.e average, normal, whatever. It is our chemist friend who is having a passionate affair with it, not me. Take it or leave it <shrug>
HEXYL *is* total shit, this is from the horse's mouth long time ago i.e. a person who has a mythical status as Poppers God. If PROPYL is a mutant alien, then HEXYL is his rectum on a hot July day.

@Michael..no...haven't tried Hexyl from Lockerroom before. Those people who are making comments about this and that....really need to name the maker because anyone into poppers should know that the maker makes all the difference....just as much as the type of nitrite.

@Michael...the Everest bottle I bought was funky smelling, bad feet/camphor isoamyl nitrite. I've smelled that exact odor in 100 mls of isoamyl nitrite I bought from Tokyo Chemical...
Isoamyl nitrite degrades very quickly and this is the funky odor it develops. Everest is NOT a Lockerroom product.
The Dreadful Flying Glove said on Tue, 20 Jul 2021 at 11:58...
There are only a few euro-makers, the rest is labeling. Those makers have iso-amyl, pentyl, propyl. Butyl is under the table, same story with amyl nitrite. Hexyl is mostly Chinese origin...I say again: AVOID, it is the dirty black sheep of poppers.
Lockerroom is like a Volvo, reliable, safe, boring, but it gets you from A to B.
Anyone can "white label" a brand if they want, there are leather kink groups who do this.
Nitritespecialist said on Tue, 20 Jul 2021 at 14:57...
Amyl and pentyl are synonyms. Amyl/pentyl nitrite = the same. There are 8 isomers of amyl....8 variations so to speak. But normal straight chained amyl nitrite is identical to normal straight chained pentyl nitrite. Lockerroom wouldn't say which exact nitrites were in their poppers. If it's isoamyl/isopentyl, they've done an excellent of preserving it so it doesn't develop that nasty foul musty camphor foot odor that Everest does.
The Dreadful Flying Glove said on Tue, 20 Jul 2021 at 19:09...
They are a serious operation, not a factory with a "sideline"..so yes they know about preservatives after all these years.

All I can say is that Lockerroom products manufactured in Delta, BC, Canada are legitimate.
Their Jungle Juice Black Label Extreme Formula (Pentyl Nitrite, 2-Methylbutyl Nitrite) has been my go-to over the years and, unless someone credible can convince me that there's something better on the market, there's no point in me trying anything else.
Nitritespecialist said on Thu, 22 Jul 2021 at 01:25...
@Gym...I am thinking the same thing....The JJ Black Label I bought is the best I've purchased since Joe Miller died in 2010. It lasted 5 days with hitting it about 4 to 5 times a day. Had the lot number H45 on the lid and the manager of LRM said it indicated it was theirs and it was recently made.
Gym said on Thu, 22 Jul 2021 at 03:26...
There's no doubt it is theirs. Lockerroom's packaging cannot be duplicated.
In the past, via Poppers-Zone, I've also tried:
- Lockerroom's JJ Platinum (Pentyl Nitrite, 2-Methylbutyl Nitrite) 30 ml bottle
Note: Lockerroom's JJ Platinum 30 ml bottle is now being filled with hexyl nitrite which I have not tried but I'm led to believe it is an inferior product overall.
- Lockerroom's JJ Gold Label Triple Distilled (Pentyl Nitrite, 2-Methylbutyl Nitrite) 30 ml bottle
- Lockerroom's Jacked (Pentyl Nitrite, 2-Methylbutyl Nitrite) 30 ml bottle
Now these poppers were all fairly similar, very decent poppers but, at one point, maybe a year ago, I decided that the search for Lockerroom's best "leather cleaner" was over and that the winner was:
Jungle Juice Black Label Extreme Formula (Pentyl Nitrite, 2-Methylbutyl Nitrite)

@Gym...I specifically asked the manager at LRM if anyone fakes their packaging down to the exact same address, detail...and he said YES. So it's best to call their toll free number to verify if the product is indeed theirs.

@nitritesspecialist, as lockerroom in Canada never sell directly to shops in Europe I doubt they know who sells the real products and who is selling fakes.
They have 1 importer and I email them many times and never received any answer. What I know is that Hexyl is definitely not a good formula abd feed-backs are not good ar all. Lockerroom has since come back on their decision to only sell hexyl as now they are proposing 24ml pentyl for some of their brands.
Gym said on Fri, 23 Jul 2021 at 22:11...
Thanks but there's no need for me to contact Lockerroom. I'm extremely confident that the Jungle Juice Black Label Extreme Formula (Pentyl Nitrite, 2-Methylbutyl Nitrite) 30 ml bottles that I've been buying from Poppers-Zone are, in fact, genuine Lockerroom products. It never once crossed my mind that they aren't.
That is correct. Many of their brands that were Pentyl in the past have switched to Hexyl. I read somewhere that Lockerroom are switching to hexyl so that they can start selling in the U.S.A. It is my understanding that it is currently illegal to sell pentyl in the States.
That said, there are a few genuine Lockerroom products which remain pentyl such as the JJ Black Label 10-30 ml bottles and the JJ Gold Label Triple Distilled 10-30 ml bottles. And, as you said, there are other pentyl products which are now being sold in 24 ml bottles as well. I believe Lockerroom's Amsterdam is one of them.
Nowadays, when browsing different poppers websites prior to making a purchase, buyers need to pay very close attention and make sure which nitrite (amyl, pentyl, hexyl, propyl, etc) is being used for the poppers they want to buy.
If the type of nitrite is not clearly listed on the popper's description page, then one should not buy from that website.

An update.Just bought LR triple distilled Gold Label, The Real Amsterdam and Jacked on special from an Australian site.
Packaging conforms with normal LR Shrink wrapped and marked bottles, except that the Jacked has no CAS No, just “contains Mink Oil and Alkyl Nitirite” on the label.
I don’t claim to be an expert but suspect that the Jacked, seeming milder, is Hexyl.
I haven’t tried the others yet, but the CAS No’s are both 542-56-3 indicating isobutylene nitrite, which is fine as I like this stuff and am too old to worry about the cancer risk (the reason the EU banned it).
When will they label their bottles consistently so we know what we are buying!
And when will a manufacturer take up this niche market and apply to our TGA to market pharmaceutical grade nitrites legally through pharmacies?!

JJ Lockerroom currently offers only pentyl (CAS 463-04-7) and hexyl (CAS 638-51-7) It is always listed on the bottle but without CAS number.

Does anyone Know a Eurupean retailer who sells online genuine Lockerroom Pentyl nitrites and ships worldwide ?
