It took a while getting used to the folding, but from the packability aspect, you can't beat it. I spent a little time exercising the folds in both directions which made a difference, and the fact that it serves as a cutting board before eating off it is a nice feature. I bought the set (cup, bowl, plate) and it's held up nicely. Clean-up is also very simple.

Given to me as a freebie at an outdoor trade show.

I would never have bought this and having used it still wouldn't -- a great gimmick, but ultimately I don't see the point.

Yep holds liquid, doesn't leak and coffee tastes ok out of it.

But I'm left looking at it and thinking why??
