I bought this bowl at EMS last minute before a week long trip in the Boundary Waters. It works great and folds flat so it fits in your pack perfectly. The bottom actually makes a good cutting board. JUST BE CAREFUL WITH SHARP KNIVES. It is easy to lose concentration when you are using the cutting board and slice through the side wall.
The only flaws it has are the heat transfer through the silicone, and the ability to slice it to shreds with a sharp knife. The first time I used it eating ramen with hunks of chicken I poked a hole in the side with my spork. It was a quick fix with duct tape for the rest of the trip, but after that I went and bought another one. Won't leave home without it because I haven't found anything better, however, there is still room for improvement.

This bowl is simply awesometastic for what I use it for. I was looking for a cheap and collapsible bowl I could bring with me when out for the day with my dog. This fit the bill perfectly. It smashes down, takes up very little space as it fits under the frisbee.
The only down side is, my dog thinks it's a frisbee when it's collapsed.
Multitasking camping gear = awesome. Packs down to a wafer, is lightweight, and overall super. The silicon retains odors, though, which may bother some people.
