293-Hiking Utensils 101

Show notes

Eating utensils are one of the most underrated and under-considered piece of hiking gear in our packs. For most hikers what we choose to use is often based around what our fellow hikers are using or what catches our eye in the store but there is so much more to think about when purchasing your eating utensils.

In this podcast episode we look at the considerations for choosing that perfect eating utensil for your outdoor adventures.
