Tight on space? Take this

Who needs bowls and cups when you've got MealGear's "Squishy Bowls," lightweight, unbreakable silicone replacements for traditional table settings. The set ($15; www.guyotdesigns .com) consists of a 16-ounce bowl and 6-ounce cup, which can be flattened for packing and turned inside out for cleaning. The manufacturer says the bowls can withstand temperatures to 400 degrees, plenty warm for soup and coffee.

Backpacker magazine gave the bowls a thumbs up, but sailors and paddlers will find them useful, too.
