Flat Packable Ultralight Backpacking Bowl – Fozzils Bowlz Review

A review and my thoughts on the Fozzils flat packable bowl for ultralight backpacking & camping. 

Fozzils Bowlz are a unique and lightweight backpacking and camping bowl that packs down flat, but quickly converts into and bowl and 16 oz measuring cup using four simple plastic snaps.  The flat configuration also gives you the ability to use Fozzils Bowlz as minimalist plate or makeshift serving platter at camp.

In this video, I specifically review the bowl, but Fozzils also has a 3 piece set consisting of a bowl, cup, and plate bowl that function in similar fashion.

The ability to clean it while flat, combined with it’s non-stick silicone coating makes for easy cleanup in the field as well.  The plastic is also BPA free.

Weight for each bowl is 1.4 oz (40 grams).

  1. Awesome suggestion! I also found these guys on Amazon – and oddly enough found a Coleman version for $8 (https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Origami-Dishware-Set/dp/B01B1SVKBM/ref=pd_sim_468_2?ie=UTF8&dpID=41%2BpxZRNOtL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=BWPJFSH3VKD5B8JB9BKD). I’m not affiliated, just throwing that out there. No snazzy design unfortunately.
    As always, thanks for the tip, Sintax. Great bear by the way – suits you.

  2. I use this too. I love the flat, flexible plate for packing (and it cleans well). I can put it vertically in the pack or horizontally (it fits my Ohm 2.0 right on top of my trash compactor bag).

    I generally spoon food right out of the bag it was rehydrated in, but the bowl helps contain particularly floppy (or super hot) bags. Nice container with no cleanup required. When I’m eating oatmeal or granola, I used the bowl configuration and endure a washup afterwards.

    When I finally achieve gram-weeniedom, I’ll probably toss the Fozzils. Until then, I like.

    Nice review. Love your videos!
