An improved PET container is disclosed which is expressly configured for hot fill applications. The container's body side wall is rigidized against radical and longitudinal vacuum distribution so that paper labels can be applied to the container. In addition, the amorphous threaded mouth of the container is rigidized by gussets molded into the container at the junction of the mouth and body portion of the container to resist deformation when the container is capped. Finally, a bulbous vacuum deformation area in the container is provided adjacent the container mouth.
