Hot, aromatic life-juice anywhere, anytime.

Gourmet coffee usually reserved for overpriced shops, well that is unless you have the GSI Outdoor Collapsible Coffee Drip. Slip any brand of #4 filters into this slim, silicone dripper and experience caffeinated euphoria in the most remote locations. When it’s compressed, this little addiction-feeder is a mere one inch thick and 5 ½ inches diameter, so it takes up less space than your wake-up drug—just don’t skimp on the quality of the beans.

No More Instant Coffee!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this Java Drip because I was tired of drinking instant coffee when I go camping. The Java Drip collapses down very small so it is easy to pack and makes for a much more enjoyable morning! It is very easy to use, you can set it on any mug or cup and you can use the same filters that you use for your coffee pot at home. Be careful not to fill the filter with hot water too fast because it does take a bit for it to filter through to your cup. I love this addition to my camping gear!

When I drip you drip we drip.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is great if you are trying to make coffee for two or three people. Any more and the process will be pretty slow and start to clog and if you are going solo I would recommend a french press or something. Just be careful when you add the hot water because the whole assembly is a balancing act and its been known to tip.

So awesome I bought another one

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Yep. I did it. I bought a 2nd one.

The first is dedicated to the kitchen counter.

The 2nd is dedicated to the camp kitchen box.

Still have yet to find any cons in my use. Love it.

Great at home or on the road

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Whether camping or at home, I find this easier and faster than a French press, unless you're trying to make coffee for a lot people all at once. It is super cheap and easy to clean (most of the time just throw away the coffee filter). Don't (let your roomates) put it in the dishwasher-- the plastic lid is a bit warped now. If I was going ultralite, I wouldn't bring it, I'd just rubberband a filter over my cup or even just use the little pouches of instant coffee.

Coffee on the go

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this to make cleaning up at camp easier. I used to use a french pres but it's kind of a paint to clean when at camp. This thing with filters solved that problem. So far no issues with it.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is great for coffee in the woods or in your house. I saw this for the first time in Peru when I saw a Norwegian girl making pour over coffee in my hostel. She carried it around in her backpack and always had better coffee than me. I was so happy to find this on Backcountry and have been using it in my house every morning. Easiest way to make coffee and clean it up quickly. I'm excited to use it on camping adventures in the near future!

Drip drip drip

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pourover coffee in the woods? What's not to love?

Bough this to replace my old Nalgene french press, which was always a gritty mess to use. Works great with a filter, really easy to clean. This thing collapses down to a great little size, and weighs just 4.8 oz.

Zero complaints. Love it.

Gotta Have My Coffee

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I gotta have my coffee. That is a given! The Java Drip allows me to make a very nice cup of coffee. The clean up is easy, and once it is done it collapses down to take up hardly any room in your pack.

Using it is simple as well. Place it over your favorite mug, add the filter, and the coffee grounds (fresh ground is preferred), slowly pour in the water letting the grounds bloom, top off the water to the desired amount you want, then sit back and relax!

Gotta Have My Coffee

Perfect for gypsy style coffee.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Fits easily in your pack or perhaps your locker at work. Easy to clean. Light enough. I like the fact it comes with a cover. Makes great coffee. Bring your hand grinder of choice and some filters and you are set!

Essential for coffee drinking campers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

1. Simple
2. Easy clean up (especially vs a french press)
3. Collapsible for storage and transport
4. Will fit any size mug opening (unless you drink from a bowl or large pot? Who does that?)

I have yet to find any.

Side note: I lost this java drip for a while and replaced it with an el-cheapo, non-collapsible from the grocery store which takes up too much space, AND it has this silly base that slides into the top of your mug, which is too big and DOES NOT fit half my mugs, or my favorite travel mug. SO DUMB. We FINALLY found the missing GSI Java Drip. THANK GOODNESS! I was about to buy a 2nd one to avoid this trouble in the future and then it sold out. So apparently everyone knows how awesome these are. Get on the bandwagon!

So simple it's to easy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pack coffee filter. Done

We loaded the filter and just kept adding water, first cup so strong hut the next couple were perfect.

Not much to say. Simple and easy. Paper, rock scissor for who has to carry old grounds

Not just for camping.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pour-over coffee is the simplest way for a great cup of coffee and this Collapsible Java Drip is great for traveling as it's much easier to pack than the bulky alternative. Plus, it's held up well to almost daily use and the occasional trip to the dishwasher. It's designed for a #4 filter although I've used a smaller #2 filter since that's what I have around and I typically brew for a single cup. But it's nice there's room for more.

Great little device ...

    This thing works, plain and simple. It's not quite as small as I hoped it would be. Utilizes large filters. Make sure you experiment before using this in the back country. My first few cups were WAY too strong.

    Remember that time you left coffee at home?

      I used to bring instant coffee on trips to avoid bring bulky coffee making supplies. Then I found this. It works like a charm and cleans easily. It also doubles as a funnel if you need such a thing. Store the coffee filters in the lid and slid it into the bottom of your pot set.
