Sea to Summit
BreakdownIf you are a hunter who is looking for a lightweight spoon and consistently eat Mountain House or Peak Refuel, then look no further. Sea to Summit's Alpha Light Long Spoon uses a durable aluminum combined with a sleek-yet-strong shape to create an extremely lightweight utensil at a surprisingly affordable price. By hard anodizing the aluminum, it forms a kind of "exoskeleton," so the utensils can be slimmer and lighter. This hardened shell also encapsulates the aluminum, to eliminate the risk of the alloy leaching into food.
I purchased this product with the hopes that it would eliminate the food getting on my hands when mixing/eating my backcountry dehydrated/freeze dried meal. When using past backpacking type spoons, I would always get food on my hands when stirring and eating the meal. Typically the handles of many back country spoons are so short that when reaching into the bag to get a spoon full would always end with food getting on my hands and knuckles each time. My hopes that this product with having such a long handle would eliminate that. This product exceeded my expectations.
Original item was damaged by shipper, I had a new one 72 hours after I opened the first one, and it was intact, no questions asked. Perfect length for the ridiculously long bags most dehy makers use.
The length and light weight of this spoon (titanium construction makes it feather light and uber-cool) make it perfect for any backcountry trip you might have in mind.
This is rigid enough that you don't have to worry too much about it breaking in your pack, and it is long enough that you can scrape every last morsel from the corners of the freeze-dried meal bag.
The hole at the end of the handle is perfect for hanging the spoon inside your pack or on the outside of the mess kit; it even comes with a tiny titanium carabiner that lets you hook it on to ensure it doesn't drop out of your pack when you pull out your puffy coat.
Would certainly purchase this again and would kit a new hunter out with this spoon!
