[mechanical] i need help designing a plastic water jug to be overmolded with a rubbery material

Hello, I'm working on a personal project where I'm trying to design a drop weight that can be filled with water to adjust weight. I've built a rough prototype and it works really well, but I'm not sure if it could ever be made in production.

Is it possible to say have a plastic bottle or water jug and fully cover it with a thick, tough rubber material that can be dropped onto pavement from a few feet up? It would have a threaded cap that would be protected by the rubber.

Are there any products out there like this? I just don't know if it can be made.
