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

Haven't had the opportunity to use it much yet, my dog decided it was the most delicious frisbee around and now the bowl is no more, so I need to grab another, whoops. But when I did use it I found it tough enough to handle quite a bit of heat, it held its shape well, made a useful cutting board, and folded flat very easily. It didn't feel super tough, it probably won't last forever, but its a pretty darn compact and solid backpacking bowl that I would recommend.

One of my "always goes" pieces of gear.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my ramen and oatmeal bowl. I can't think of getting anything else. I don't like having anything but water in my boiling pot so I need a bowl that can do it all. Can get a little hot in your hands but that is what my universal foil lid/tray is for(just a 3' piece of tin foil folded down to 6"x6"). Not sure about the long term durability and silicone can attract lint, pet hair etc. But whatever, right? I mean there's a leaf in my water right now.

Great bowl - not bombproof

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this bowl, but I put it through too too much. I kept it on the outer pocket of my backpack covered only by mesh, and it unfortunately got a few small holes. This was mostly my own fault - every time I put my backpack face-down it would be resting on the bowl. I still give it 5 stars because it held up to normal wear and worked great as a cutting board too. Note: this is actually the XL-Bowl.

Great bowl for packing.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It is a great bowl for packing along and wanting to eat out of a container other than the pot you just cooked your meal in.

this bowl is great, especially on mountaineering trips. packs down small, and light weight. cleans out really easily. no issues with hot soups or pasta melting the material.

Great bowl

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is nice and compact for a bowl so you can stack them nicely. If you just need a bowl then this is a good choice. If you are car camping and want to save space the X series would be a good option. I like this bowl but for backpacking I take he XL bowl since it works well as a plate and bowl. If you want a plate and a separate bowl then get this and the plate. This bowl fits nicely in the bottom of my 1.5L MSR Blacklite pot and the XL fits in the fry pan. I like being able to stuff the X series in a pot and not take up all the space in the pot so I can put my stove in there as well.

Used on many backpacking and kayaking trips in Southeastern Ohio. Love that the base can double as a cutting board (just make sure you don't chop the silicone sides!) Also surprised that it was dishwasher and microwave safe. Took advantage of both of these while moving cross-country and dishes box was buried.

I love them!

I take them everywhere in my computer bag. You would be surprised how often they're used when available. I also have the mug. Two suggestions: 1) Make them less floppy. They would be easier to hold and feel more secure if they didn't flop as much. 2) Make the mug 'snap' into the bowl so it stays put.

Good find

Great bowls! I have 3 of the plates and 3 of the bowls and I love them. They are solid, good-sized and are constructed with good material that won't wear out easily. Perfect for car camping!

Nice Bowl

Overall it's a nice bowl. It's compact, nests with the X line of cups, bowls and plates. The silicone is too thin to insulate it, when using it for hot soup. So it has to be held by the bottom nylon part or it's too hot to hold. And it retains food odors. Try eating a small can of pork and beans out of it and wash it within an hour. Mine still smells like pork and beans even after multiple washes and soaks in hot soapy water. It's no biggie, because I can't smell the pork and beans, when I eat other food out of it. But overall it's a winner.

4 years strong

I wrote my first x-bowl review in 2008, and my 2nd in 2009. I am happy to report that both bowls are still in perfect condition after regular use. I had them both out last weekend while camping. Still love them, and I am finally thinking about adding an X-plate to the mix.

Is it microwave safe?
