I don’t do any full-on food preparation on the trail preferring to rehydrate commercial or home prepared meals, and I also don’t use plates or bowls anymore so only need a spoon or spork to get food from the meal bag or peanut butter jar to my mouth. I have large hands and find many other smaller implements such as Sporks or short handled spoons annoying as I’m either eating with an uncomfortable handle or a short handle covered in food.
I discovered the Lightweight Titanium Long Handled Spoon a number of years ago and was instantly drawn to it due mainly to the polished surface on the spoon head which means the issue of leftover food is all but gone which was the only real concern I had with the Sea to Summit Alpha light long handled spoon, problem fixed.
The Lifeventure spoon works equally well for those with small hands as well as large hands with the decent length long handle.Typically when Gill and I hike as a couple and are eating commercially prepared meals out of a bag, we will share this spoon for dinner purely because of the long handle. Very cosy I know!
However, there are some negatives with this spoon. If you have read any of my other blog posts or listened to the Australian Hiker Podcasts you will know I am trying to become an ultralight hiker. But rather than being a gram weeny I am willing to sacrifice weight for comfort, or function based on purely my own subjective criteria and this spoon is a good example. The Lifeventure Ultra-Lightweight Titanium Long Handled Spoon is a spoon on steroids at a massive 20 grams (I jest) but thats heavy as other spoons I’ve tested and own and here’s where I’m willing to make the weight sacrifice, just an additional eight grams for a shiny head spoon is a worthwhile trade off from my perspective.
The real negative to this spoon is the price coming in at $26.95. I may be wrong but I think this is possibly the most expensive hiking spoon on the Australian market. Having said that I expect this spoon to last for many years to come.

I have reasonably large hands and this very long handle provides plenty of grip to get comfortable or to reach the bottom of a dehydrated meal bag without getting covered in food
