This folding bowl is a great item that makes outdoor life a little easier. It has multiple applications: carrying water to camp, cleaning veggies, salad bowl, washing clothes, dishes or yourself (no more battling with campsite basins without plugs). It is reversable, use one side for food and one side for washing. The two handles make carrying easy. It folds flat so takes up little space in the pannier. 5 litre size is good for solo tours and the 10 litre size for two or more.
