Testers never hesitated to pack the light and stuffable Ruff Wear Bivy Bowl, even on minimalist dayhikes. The fabric dish features welded seams, bringing it under two ounces, and it scrunches to fist-size.

Cool thing: “It never tipped, thanks to the no-slip bottom and stable shape,” says our tester. And it proved indestructible during a year of abuse. $20; 2 oz., ruffwear.com
