This spork model does not fold. As a member of another website, I am given products to test from time to time in exchange for a review. I was provided the Primus TrailSpork Tritan to test and review. The Primus… Full review

The new Primus Trailbottle stainless steel line offers a 0.6L, a 1.0L, a vacuum 0.5L, and a vacuum 0.8L. For purposes of this review, I’m putting the 1.0L S/S Trailbottle through its paces.  The Primus Trailbottle 1.0L comes in four (4) color options: black, red, light green, and powder blue. Being on the trail or kayak in… Full review
