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.

Wouldn't the Marmot Helium be a better choice at 7 oz less? Or the Helium EQ and save the weight of a bivy sack?

Hi Richard-

The Marmot Helium or Helium EQ certainly would have made a fine choice for Bob's trip. As we plan for Bob to have a 4-season tent, the EQ version shouldn't be needed. As for the standard helium, Marmot apparently didn't have one on display at their booth for photos, so it didn't fit our only-gear-found-at-OR criteria.

Cheers,

-Mike

OK, I'll bite. Even though I'm a summer camper I can manage to use my existing clothing and go for a winter camp trip with Bob. New sleeping bag, Pack, Probe,(I'll borrow a PIEPS from a friend!), plus that cool hat. The cost should be under $750..lets go!

My wife and I have these and am very happy with them. They offer a lot of performance for their weight in full-on winter conditions with an abundance of snow!

It looks like it is available now. They say they will ship from the UK, but it is pricy.
available from canada: $20 + $5

I'm going to show this to my wife. She's tried some similar products, but had a backup problem because of the small spout.

Hi All-

I just wanted to send out a quick note to let everyone know that the Virtual Pack is now complete.

Thank you for all of your comments and suggestions as we built Bob's kit.

Cheers,

-Mike
