GSI Outdoors Telescoping Foon

Closeouts. When every last ounce matters on the trail, GSI Outdoors' telescoping foon (fork + spoon) lightens the utensil load to a mere 0.3 ounces. The unique handle shortens for easy packing, and the multi-use design functions as a fork or spoon as needed.

    The perennial challenge of a backpacking utensil is how to make it long enough to reach into the corners of a retort pouch but also short enough to tuck into your mug. The slide method is one way to collapse the handle but it's really dependent on 1.) being clean, 2.) dexterous hands, and 3.) being super aware of the pinch hazard on the back of the handle. I admire a clever design -- which is why the 2 stars -- but it's not better than washing and re-using sporks from KFC.

    The whole thing is pretty flimsy. I bought them for my kids at school and for camping. I'm afraid if they push too hard, the thing will break. Definitely not a utensil for serious meats. Ok for stabbing soft meats and veggies. Spoon function seem ok.

    It is lighter than titanium and seems to be good to use.

    It is a little inconvenience to clean the folded part.

    I have two of these spoons that came with a GSI kit I bought a few years ago. It's OK at best. Two of the tines on one of them broke off, leaving me with a bucktoothed spork. The lexan spoon portion has a good mouthfeel (odd to say, but I bought a few folding MSR spoons to replace this one, and the mouthfeel is about as pleasant as nails on a chalkboard). I have some of those Light My Fire spoon / fork jobbies, but those are terrible too.
    If you don't mind breaking a bunch of these spoons, go ahead and load up on half a dozen of them - they are light and small, but relatively flimsy. Otherwise I'd save your money and buy a titanium utensil that has smooth spoon.
