Light packers will love the GSI Outdoors Ultralight Nesting Bowl and Mug.

You might think low-profile and low-center-of-gravity designs are just for kayaks and other highly engineered items. Get this—GSI Outdoors created the Ultralight Nesting Bowl and Mug with those two design features, so you're less likely to spill hot beverages and food when your hands are shaking from the cold. Or when you're too sleepy to be super careful with a hot cup of coffee in the very early morning before your ascent. A foam-insulated sleeve helps keep your drinks hot, and the Ultralight Nesting Bowl and Mug's Sip-it top keeps your beverages hot.

Very Pleased, Great Set

    The set fits together very nice and compact. The lid fits securely. I use the cup as an insulated bowl on my backcountry trips. If I am traveling with a partner without their own bowl, I will bring both pieces. The lid and insulation helps keep food hot while rehydrating. Perhaps not for the minimalist, because it can fit two servings. With its size, for packing, I stack my pot in the bowl and place them both in a mesh bag. I have also had the chance to use the smaller version from the soloist set and they compare equally.


    Pretty great

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I've enjoyed this set of a simple bowl and mug. It saves room having two in one. It's nice the mug has a little thermos wrap around the outside. However, if you hardly do dishes in the back country it's hard to want to slide the clean outside of the mug into your dirty bowl at the end of a meal.


    Two bowls for the price of one?

      I would say they are more a bowl than a cup. I will call them a bowl/cup.

      GSI makes great stuff. It is a nice little set. An insulated bowl/cup with a lid for keeping your food/drink warm.

      Bowl/cup for food/drink for man/child. It is like a match made in heaven.

      It is a nice set to bring and have a lot of flexibility in how you want to use it.


      Great lightweight set for two

      • Gender:Male
      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      4.3 ounces is not much, especially if sharing between two. In my opinion the mug and bowl can be used both for bowls, seeing as how most people will already have a drinking vessel... but the mug does work quite nicely for drinking hot coffee or tea out of as well. If I am on a solo adventure, I only take the mug (the one with a cozy and lid) and use it as my bowl. In combination with the GSI Outdoors Halulite Minimalist Set, just the mug works perfectly as a bowl for the solo mission, using the GSI Halulite Minimalist Pot as a mug.

      If your partnering up for your trip, take the whole set and it is perfect to share. Even the larger vessel, deemed the bowl, which does not have a cozy is still easy to hold, as I never really feel much heat through the plastic. The set has enough space inside to hold a variety of items and fits snugly in even the smaller corners or your pack.

      All in all, it is a great set for yourself or to share, and for eight dollars it is kind of hard to say no.

      This one does the job for sure.



      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      It is so fun to cook creative food in the backcountry. This set is perfect for yummy food, coffee and a bit of wine :) The width makes them virtually un-spillable and they have a sippy lid. Love it.

      Will this fit in a MSR 1.1L stowaway?...

      Will this fit in a MSR 1.1L stowaway? neither of these products have dimensions listed

      Hey Drew Maggio,

      The dimensions of this kit are 5.10" x 5.10" x 2.70". The 1.1L stowaway measures 5" x 5" x 3". So this will not fit in that pot, however it should fit in the 1.6L pot. If you have any questions feel free to hit up a Gearhead on chat or give us a call at 1-800-409-4502.


      Replacement for Dualist

      • Gender:Male
      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      A buddy of mine lost one of my bowls in a stream--current took it right from his hand while washing and immediately under the 50yd snow pack. Needless to say, it wasn't recovered.

      Needed a replacement and researched the GSI website. This bowl combo was the exact match for the Ultralite Dualist.

      Bingo, cooking set is complete again!


      great for what they are.

        These are nice and light.. easy to clean and keep my food tasting great without the plastic taste.

        These cups/bowls are a Wonderful thing!

        • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

        These came in my Glacier Dualist kit from GSI & they are extraordinary! I have used them multiple times just as measuring cups thanks to the OZ & ML markings inside. They do exactly what they are made to do & they are light & tough! A+++

        Will this nest inside a Snow Peak 1400...

        Will this nest inside a Snow Peak 1400 pot? The dimensions look close but I wart to make sure before ordering (once you have them in stock again). Thanks.

        If you are talking about the Snow Peak Trek 1400 Titanium cookset, the dimensions for that are 5.5" x 4.5" and the dimensions for this are 5.10" x 5.10" x 2.7". Does not look like it will fit, unless you are talking about a different Snow Peak pot.


        Useful and handy

        • Gender:Male
        • Familiarity:I've used it several times

        These work well and are well-engineered and well thought-out. The fit is great; the neoprene sleeve makes it snug so there's no rattling. You can put a fuel canister inside them when packing (just like any bowl, really, but these have a flat bottom, which makes them very space-efficient). The squat shape makes them hard to knock over. Use them in the right order so you don't get food all over the sleeve packing up dirty dishes. The tops are a little stiff, but they work well. All in all, very handy.

        Could you nest the Snow Peak 900 inside the inner diameter of this, with the lid taken off?

        Re "GSI Outdoors Ultralight Nesting Bowl and Mug": Are these on sale or not? The thumbnail page shows them at 30% off, but when I put them in my shopping cart they're at regular price.


        GSI Outdoors Ultralight Nesting Bowl and Mug

          Affordable and light weight, keeps food warm for just over 10 minutes, and the nesting feature makes compact packing much easier. The bowl holds enough for 2 servings and the lit will help keep the bugs out while you stoke the fire; that is unless you prefer to have a little extra protein with your dinner.

          Light weight Bowl and Mug

            Good bowl and mug set. Cleans up easy and decent insulation on the mug.


            As Advertised

              This is a decent cup/bowl set. It works as you'd expect and doesn't take up too much room. My only complaint is that it's difficult to fit most spoons/forks in this bowl. GSI does make a folding spork, but that doesn't really stand up to any decent use. All in all, not a bad buy.
