I bought this bowl after a camping trip when it was apparent that cleaning dishes was a problem. Problem solved! The bowl retains water without splashing (the inside lip cuts that down), and there's no leakage through the material unlike a similar smaller bowl that I've used for a dog water dish which starts leaking after holding the water for a few minutes. NONE of that here. It's large enough for smaller plates and bowls but not big enough for a skillet or a full-size plate. We use bowls when camping so it's perfect for us (they're probably about 8" across).
I don't fold mine up, but since it's pliable and spacious, I stack our bowls or cookware inside when packing. It doesn't take up any room as a result.

These are great water bowls for the dogs when hiking and camping. I have another for doing dishes and holding small items. They are very light but robust. The lip fabric that sticks out on the inside edge is a little odd, but I think that it is to help keep the edges upright and open.

The measurements are wrong on the website, AND the packaging! That is not my issue. I am not sure how long this would last. Doesn't seem stiff enough to hold water (it does though) and too stiff to fold up. I guess it would work fine, but I opted to find another solution for dog water in summer. My choice.
