Sea to Summit Delta Bowl with Lid

Holds up well, easy to clean, and silverware kit fits inside. This is my fourth version of mess gear for Boy Scout camping, seems to do the trick. The bowl is deep enough to hold plenty of food, and thick enough to keep it reasonably warm during colder campouts. The diameter is big enough that I can store my utensils inside with the lid closed, and there is even enough room for my headlamp, or small flashlight. Easy to clean when out in the woods. The thumb grip on the side can accept a carabiner,… Full review

Silipint Squeeze-a-Bowl

The only cup you'll ever need! It does hot and cold and the dishwasher! As a member of another website, I get products to test from time to time in exchange for a review.  The Squeeze-a-Bowl was actually incredibly sturdy. I tried filling it up fairly full and could still easily pick it up with one hand without it flopping around and spilling the contents. It was sturdy enough that even my 4 year old could be trusted holding, carrying, and using it. We have used it for cold cereal, hot soups,… Full review

Sea to Summit X-Bowl

Perfect backpacking bowl. Purchased a few years ago—tired of eating directly from the packages. Liked the collapsible concept and lightweight.   Zero complaints—used enough to say it's a great product that I expect to have 20 years from now. Priced well also. Full review

Guyot Designs Original Squishy Bowl and Cup Set

For me, at least, the perfect bowl and cup set. They weigh very little, pack small, and hold hot coffee without burning me. Also, double as hotpads for handles on pots. So, what can be said, they hold liquid while insulating my hands from the heat of hot liquids. They double as hotpads and measuring cups. They don't weigh much and take up very little space because they're squishy. They also clean up easily as they can be turned inside out.  The bad part? Ya, they're squishy, so you have to be careful… Full review

Fozzils Bowlz Set

A nice, light way to pack flat in your pack and to have something nicer than a rock to eat off of. Relative to its price, it's a decent piece of gear. In use with a great meal of African cassava leaves and dried smoked minnows! Ease of Use: The Fozzils bowl/plate is easy to use. It has four snaps that lock folds into place to create a bowl that is sturdy enough to hold a full meal. It is also able to hold liquids and soups successfully with its design. When you're finished eating, it wipes down… Full review

Sea to Summit X-Bowl

This bowl folds flat to slip easily into your pack. It extends up well and holds its shape, but it gets hot to touch on the sides and loses its heat quickly. This bowl folds flat to slip easily into your pack. It extends up well and holds its shape, but it gets hot to touch on the sides and loses its heat quickly. The bottom, however, is made out of sturdy stuff, so sturdy the plate version s advertised as being used as a cutting board. You can do that with this one too as long as the stuff you… Full review

Unique and innovative products that fill the niche of collapsible dishware, this two-piece set includes the X-Bowl and X-Mug.

GSI Outdoors Thrive 1 Person Set

This is a basic set of dish, bowl, cup, and utensils, which comes in a mesh carry bag. It is designed to facilitate eating with the dish on your lap. It is a nice little set, which while probably not the most durable, serves us well for car and canoe camping. After years of using a hodgepodge of eating utensils and cups and plates, I decided to get some new stuff to go with our new GSI insulated mugs...( see my review of the mugs). I checked out GSI products, and found a great sale on this set. Full review

Light My Fire Outdoor Meal Kit

Great set, complete, and easy to carry I love my Meal Kit. It has all I need and is easy to grab and go. The harness makes it easy to hang on my pack via the clip for easy and quick access. I really like that the cup has a "sip" lid so that I can wander around camp without worrying about spilling. Full review
