Backcountry chefs who aspire to more than boil-in-a-bag meals will love the GSI Crossover Kitchen Set. With a mini cutting board, various spice bottles, dishwashing supplies, and handy folding utensils (tongs, spatula, and large serving/stirring spoon), it has everything one tester needed to cook and serve up a fondue feast during a hut-camping trip in Vermont. But what really distinguishes this set from the competition is the smart, moon-shaped packing system. The zippered pouch nests neatly into most two-liter and larger pots, leaving room for a small stove and fuel canister. $35; 9.5 oz.; gsioutdoors.com
