Get these light knives, forks, and spoons without breaking the bank.
Utensils These anodized (hardened) aluminum sporks, forks, knives, and spoons are lighter than titanium models, but cost about 30 percent less, and there's a style for every hiker. Eat-out-of-the-baggers: Choose the long-handled spoon for digging every last noodle from the folds and corners without gunking up your knuckles. Each style comes with a mini carabiner so you can clip it to your pack. $6-15; .4-1.3 oz.; seatosummit.com
