Morsel Spork XL

Not meant for the backcountry. This item is great and very functional in theory. I bought one as soon as I first saw it advertised. Unfortunately, it is not manufactured well, the scraping edge is a soft rubber that has separated from the plastic body after  4 or 5 uses. When I saw it promoted in Backpacker and various outdoor retailers, I assumed it was built to perform for backpacking; it is not. This wouldn't be an issue if one was just eating rehydrated food out of a pouch, but not everybody… Full review

Rothco Stainless Steel Canteen Cup Lid

With very slight modification this lid will fit any canteen cup. I am not going to add too much to Michael's excellent review. If a person takes some linesman pliers and unfolds or straightens the outside edge of the canteen cup lid, it will fit most US canteen cups. Below (bottom picture) are two solid fuel stove types that this lid works with as examples to see. There are others. A lid makes the canteen cup cooker more efficient. It’s a lightweight system especially for one or two nights out… Full review

Rothco Stainless Steel Canteen Cup Lid

So did you see that movie STRIPES with Bill Murray? Well, he and his platoon would have arrived on time for their graduation if they all had the Rothco Stainless Steel Canteen Lid... This stainless steel lid really Razzle-Dazzled me (pun/reference intended). One of the disadvantages of cooking in a military canteen cup is not having a lid. Water boils ~25% faster with a lid on vs an open top. Canteens are often sold by themselves and the canteen cup and lid sold separately. The main problem is not… Full review

P-38 U.S. Military Can Opener

This is one of those rare opportunities that someone like myself can bring an old invention used in the Military for decades and share it with the outdoor camping, hiking, climbing community, most of which will be learning of this amazing invention for the very first time. I expect that this review will be the most popular of all my gear reviews. Not from anything I say...It is just one of those inventions that once you see it you are going to say I have to have it. The P38 can opener is the lightest… Full review

Ordered on Kickstarter, the product never came. The sporks never arrived and the company does not respond to emails. Full review

Elfo Swissgold Coffee Filter

Fairly lightweight, simple to use, and makes a good coffee. The elfo swissgold coffee filter on a cup The elfo swissgold coffee filter makes a good coffee on the go with minimal fuss. It consists of three parts: An outer container with the "gold" filter that you put the coffee into. (The mesh looks like finely perforated stainless steel with gold plating.) An inner container with holes in the bottom you pour water into. A lid that doubles as a drip tray after use. The elfo swissgold coffee filter… Full review

Generic Coffee Strainer

Simplest, cheapest, and almost the lightest way to make a good coffee outdoors. Generic supermarket coffee(Notice the fine mesh. Don't get a coarser tea strainer, unless you like gritty coffee.) This has to be the ultimate way to make a reasonable coffee outdoors. In fact, it is not really a gear review but a way of making coffee. Here is the process: Fill your coffee cup with water almost to the top and pour into a pot. Boil the water. Add coffee grounds to the water, cover, and stand without heating… Full review

GSI Outdoors Ultralight Java Drip

Very lightweight, but a bit fiddly to use. It can make a good coffee, though not as supplied. As I wrote in my review of the Sea to Summit X-Brew, for years I have been trying to find a lightweight way to make a good coffee outdoors. Like the X-Brew, the GSI is collapsible but weighs a lot less. Also like the X-Brew, the filter mesh is not fine enough to prevent the water rushing through the coffee grinds before it can absorb the flavour properly. I have improved this by adding an extra layer to… Full review

Sea to Summit X-Brew Coffee Dripper

Disappointing. The X-Brew isn't all that lightweight and without modification it makes a lousy coffee. I have been on a quest to make good coffee outdoors with minimum weight. I don't expect to get the result I would with a high-temperature, high-pressure espresso machine in something that weighs less than 100 g. What I do expect is coffee with a flavour like that of a French press (plunger). French press coffee is not worse than espresso, it's different. In my quest I have had some successes and… Full review
