Water Cube

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A cost- and weight-effective way to carry a lot of H2O, works well enough, but there is room for improvement. A few days ago my wife and I ran into a not-so-little problem. We were on the road and had pulled out of a long-planned hiking trip in the Colorado Rockies due to a nasty weather forecast. So we decided to divert to Canyonlands and see if we could put together a nice hike there. We went online to check availability of backcountry campsites in the Needles sector of the NP and, it being prime… Full review

Pouch Spoon

rated 5 of 5 stars An inexpensive, long-handled spoon for scraping the last bit of the goodness out of that deep plastic bag or foil pouch. I can’t believe I’m reviewing a spoon. After all, it’s just A SPOON! But in the age of the $22 titanium folding spoon, not all spoons are created—or priced—equal. So here goes. Many of us regular TSers are old enough to remember: when your parents or grandparents took you to the ice cream parlor and you ordered a hot fudge sundae and it was served in a tall kind of goblet… Full review

Infinity Insulated Mug

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best darn backpacking mug I have ever used. In the 1960s, I used the stainless steel Boy Scout cup which burned my lip on the first sip and yielded cold coffee on the second sip. In the late 1970s Aladdin came out with a 12oz insulated mug that was very cheap but worked nicely.  I used these until about 2011 or 2012 when I discovered the GSI cup. What an awesome product at a reasonable price! Coffee and soup stay hot, it is easily cleaned and, instead of taking a measuring cup, I took out the Lexan… Full review

Infinity Insulated Mug

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight insulated mug that edges out the competition on all the finer points. This mug has been amply and ably reviewed in its various versions by other TSers, but I thought I'd put in my .02 with the addition of some SCIENCE! When my well-used old Sea to Summit mug developed a tear in the outer insulating layer, I picked up the GSI version at a local outdoor store. Since my wife's S2S mug was still intact, I decided to do a head-to-head comparison of these two very similar products. Here are… Full review

Pinnacle Soloist

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you don't want to put out the money for titanium, and have basic backcountry needs, the Soloist is a great choice for one or two. Specs: 1.1 liter hard-anodized aluminum pot 14 fl. oz. insulated mug/bowl Telescoping spork Stuff sack / Welded sink Insulated handle Size: 5.5 x 5.4 x 5 inches Weight: 10.9 oz. I've used the GSI Soloist for the past five years or so and except for the tiniest of dings it still looks as good as new with zero degradation of the pot surface. While I typically use it… Full review
