Last night I went up to REI in Manhattan Beach to check out a bunch of products I have had my eye on that I’d like us to be selling at Makais.com. One brand I’ve had my eye on is Sea To Summit. I’m hoping we’ll start carrying that brand in the near future, but for right now we don’t. They carry tons of awesome products for backpacking and camping. One product that caught my eye last night was their AlphaLight aircraft aluminum alloy spork. I liked it so much I decided to buy one and I’ll be testing it out this summer when I go backpacking/camping.
The really cool thing about this aircraft aluminum alloy spork, is that it weighs in at just .3 oz (9 grams). This is incredibly light for a utensil that replaces your spoon & fork! We do carry a ultralite spork at Makais.com, but it weighs-in at .5 oz. Half an ounce is still incredibly light, but as a percentage difference, .3 oz is significantly lighter. I am very impressed by the line of Sea To Summit products, so defintely look out for these products in the future at Makais.com! Be sure to join our email list, so you’ll get notified when we get any Sea To Summit deals at Makais.com.
Some cool features of the Sea To Summit AlphaLite cutlery:
- Lightest metal cutlery on the market
- Ultra-light & strong 7075-T6 aircraft aluminumalloy
- Hard anodized aluminum for safe, life-long
- Smooth matte finish
- All pieces come with a mini carabiner
What about you? What kind of utensil(s) will you be backpacking/camping with this summer? Please comment on this blog post and let me know! Todd
