Do you have a favorite brand of gas can/containers?

I've always hated the cheap gas cans Ive bought. They crush so easily. What are some of the good ones that take a beating?

A while back, we had a discussion about this, and you're sure to get a variety of brand/style recommendations. My preference is the No Spill gas cans. Their 2.5 gallon containers run about $25 each, but it's been a solid investment for me so far.
