This kit is large. Good for car camping, but maybe too large for backpacking. Includes some good features.


  • Light
  • Has lots of uses
  • Sealed bowl good for backpacking


  • Large for backpacking

I bought this for my backpacking kit, but found out it was much larger than I expected. The full kit takes up a lot of bag space. On the bright side the folding spork, seasoning bottle, and oil bottle fit inside the included sealed bowl wish does make a great backpacking meal kit. I leave most the other stuff at home.  

The kit includes:

  • 2 plates (top and bottom of the container)
  • 1 cup (measuring lines without indication of what the lines mean)
  • 1 cutting board, strainer, grater, knife. 
  • 1 sealed bowl (not water tight)
  • 1 folding spoon, fork, knife
  • 1 three compartment spice bottle
  • 1 oil bottle

If I could have bought just the small lidded bowl, oil bottle, folding spork, and spice bottle I think it would be great for backpackers.
