Title: Bottle for flowable product

Abstract: A bottle has a body intermediate a neck and a closed bottom of the bottle. The body has an exterior surface defining a circumference of the body. The body includes a plurality of panel segments. Each panel segment has an upper panel end, a lower panel end, a length extending from the upper panel end to the lower panel end, opposite longitudinal sides, and a panel centerline extending at a substantially constant acute angle relative to the longitudinal axis of the bottle. The panel segments are disposed generally side-by-side around the circumference of the body. The exterior surface of each panel segment may be substantially planar along the circumferential width of the panel segment.
