    My daughter and I used them on our 2005 tour...well we used the plates anyway. We carried 3, one for a cutting board and the other 2 for food. They work great. Ours were a little different design from the current ones (higher sides). They fold nice and flat and take up absolutely no room in the panniers.

    I don't know that I would anything other than the plate but the other stuff may work for you.

    I gave 2 sets (plates, bowls, cups) to my brother-in-law as a gift because he's an avid camper. He reported that, unfortunately, the cups and bowls did not hold their intended shape and were therefore useless.

    I gave a set to my daughter and her partner. They report that they work well and that they take them on all their hiking trips. They did a train trip from Ontario to B.C. and used them for that as well. A friend had one of the little snaps pull out on his set and was given a quick replacement by the manufacturer.

    I have them too and have used them around the house. I plan to take them on a trip. Overall I'm not too impressed, the cup I have is a bit tricky to fold, so one has to do it for kids or people whojust want to use a cup but haven't read the instructions, and I'm not sure how sturdy it really is. There are a lot of folded areas to trap food or get gunk in them to require cleaning out, easy when they are flattened, but it's more surface area. It has a wow factor, but practical it isn't. Now lets say i was a parent travelling with a bunch of kids it would be very much more compact to carry a stack of these. Still solo I don't think they really solve a problem I have,.

    I've seen them at MEC,
    but I was afraid that with the folds and all they may not remain sanitary. That said, I just eat out of the pot.

    I have some of the bowls. They've held mac n cheese, oatmeal, and soup with no problems. Unfolded, they can be used as a plate or cutting board. They clean up easily and they're light and packable. Perfect in my book! They're also cheap.

    I used the bowl for two weeks backpacking at Philmont. I think they are really a novelty, but I'm going back to my lexan bowl.

    My Philmont tent mate tried the folding cup. He wound up putting it down range at one of the ***** range, so I guess you can figure out what he thought of it.

    We used them for three months last summer and now a few weeks in Thailand...and we love them. Beware, they changed the design, removed the snaps from the plates, and the new design is not as durable.
