It appears Orikaso, the flat N' flexible plate guys are out of business. Can anyone confirm this? Is there another lightweight flat plate / cup alternative?

Thanks,

I like the REI alternative as food can't get into the spots where the folds are, yet it squishes up small.

I use the bowl for my dog.

I see this summer, the design will be improved:

As mentioned....Fozzils is a good sub. Stronger as well - they have snaps, not fold overs.

I have carried Fozzils on our site for a couple years, though I am clearancing them out - so if you want a bargain, head over!

(Which if you have watched any of my videos on trail food, those pale blue cups/bowls are Fozzils)
