Crossover Kitchen Kit

rated 4 of 5 stars A great compact little kit for weekends or multi-day trips. It has a few useless pieces but overall a good product, and great for long backpacking trips. Better than any other kit I've seen. I've had this handy fellow for a year. It's a great addition for backcountry use and nestles nicely into my 2.5l pot, leaving just enough room to store a WhisperLite, or something of a similar size. I use it for weekend trips, and longer voyages. It is definitely more useful for multiday trips, but I find myself… Full review

Compact Scraper

rated 5 of 5 stars This makes cleaning dishes a breeze. My compact scrapper came in the Crossover Kitchen, and it's easily the handiest thing I've had in the backcountry. I really hate doing dishes. And in the backcountry this is multiplied. It's annoying, they are never really clean, and it's just so tough to get it as clean as you would in a kitchen. With the scraper you a clear away nearly all the residue left over from whatever it was in the pot; sauce, oils, general gunk. If the soft sized doesn't allow you to… Full review

Fairshare Mug

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid bowl, good for storing leftovers. The Fairshare is a cool bit of mess kit. I find it's not all that handy for most of my two-person trips as my pot sets have their own mugs. When a bowl is needed though it's handy. It's resealable so you can store leftovers very easily. The big opening allows you to shove your hand in and clean it out with ease. Definitely a solid bit of kit. Full review

50 oz. Java Drip

rated 5 of 5 stars The best coffee solution yet for rafting trips. OK, to start out, my needs for coffee are probably not in line with most, but for overnight rafting trips with 10+ coffee drinkers this is the best system we've used yet. Past coffee making efforts have evolved from cowboy coffee (uck, just uck) to percolators (too slow and fussy) to Coleman auto-drips (too bulky and fragile) to the REI 48oz insulated French Press (too hard to clean) to a large #6 coffee cone and a Hydro Flask insulated growler (too… Full review

Titanium Kung Foon

rated 4 of 5 stars Good utensil set for the backcountry, whether you're eating out of a freeze dried meal bag, or your pot. Bring the chopsticks just by themselves for an ultralight cookware solution. Kung Foon is a great utensil for the backcountry meals. I only pack the chopsticks; the rosewood is really durable and cleans well. My only complaint is if I'm eating something with a strong consistency (I eat ice cream out of the pint with this sometimes, don't judge me), the chopsticks bend a little and start creaking.
