These are what I use everytime I decide to hit the trails! If you love mountain house pre packaged freeze dried foods, you'll love this little fork! It's the perfect size for the packages, the perfect length so you don't have to stick your hand all the way into the bag. Rinses/washes easily. When you're finished, just fold it up, and it's half the size. Love this little utensil!!! My boyfriend and I usually share his set, but I decided it's time to be a big girl, and get my own fold up utensil. Definitely recommend this!
OK, so a folding fork seems simple doesn't it? Well it is a revelation. I have been carrying a long spoon for several years because I like to keep my paws clean when i am eating, but the aforementioned long spoon didn't fit in my cookware. when it came to grub o'clock, i was always rifling through my pack trying to find my spoon. Now i can stash this fork safely in my cookware and yet still reach into the depth of the freeze dry bag without wearing my meal. Thank you MSR for bringing some civility and convenience to my previously half fulfilled world.
