GSI Outdoors Rehydrate Spoon (Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2008) - 1

Durable, long, wide, light, and inexpensive – what more could you ask from a backcountry utensil? Okay, a folding option would be nice, but five out of six ain’t bad. This spoon is 7.5 inches long and weighs a scant 0.4 oz. Its name reflects what this spoon does best: enable calorie-impoverished hikers to coax much needed nourishment from the crevices of boil-in-a-bag meals – all the while keeping these calories off your knuckles, which is especially nice when eating by the light of a headlamp with your gloves on. MSRP $1.95.
