Spice Rack

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Convenient, durable, and waterproof option for storing six spices while backpacking. Not the lightest option, but definitely one of the more elegant. Sure to please those who like to tweak prepackaged food or indulge in their own culinary creations. A comfort option for those willing to sacrifice a few ounces or grams to have more flavorful food. What It Is and What You Get I purchased the GSI Outdoors Spice Rack prior to visiting Yellowstone National Park this summer, seeking an option that would… Full review

Compact Scraper

rated 5 of 5 stars I gave this 5 stars because it works great AND it even fits inside the Mini 28-T (the Trangia 28-T cook set). If you're looking for a super mini-sized scraper then this fits the bill perfectly! I bought this to go inside of my Mini T (the Trangia 28-T cookset). Fits like a glove and gets the job done! When I first bought this scraper I used it a lot...learning curve using the simmer ring on the Mini-T. Now that I have the simmer ring down, I use it for easy clean ups. It is very well made, holds… Full review

Thrive 1 Person Set

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a basic set of dish, bowl, cup, and utensils, which comes in a mesh carry bag. It is designed to facilitate eating with the dish on your lap. It is a nice little set, which while probably not the most durable, serves us well for car and canoe camping. After years of using a hodgepodge of eating utensils and cups and plates, I decided to get some new stuff to go with our new GSI insulated mugs...( see my review of the mugs). I checked out GSI products, and found a great sale on this set. Full review

Infinity Insulated Mug

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a very smartly priced mug, insulated for cold or hot beverages. It is lightweight, durable, and has served us well for canoe camping and car camping trips. It also would be good for backpacking or day hiking excursions. This is a great mug for our camping purposes. We do not usually backpack, but since we canoe camp, we do appreciate how light this mug is. It only weighs 3.2 0z. It also comes in a variety of colors. The mug is strong, made of BPA-free polypropylene, and is dishwasher safe. Full review

Halulite Ketalist Cookset

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great set for what it is, but needs a pan that nests under the kettle and then it would be perfect. This kettle can boil a quart of water in 2>3 min on an MSR PocketRocket. The small fuel can nests inside the kettle inside the bowls. If it were a little bigger (enough to fit a larger fuel can) and had a nesting fry pan this would be some of the best improvements GSI could make. That being said, for the money, the weight and options this kit can and is being used for on my adventures… Full review
