Review: Mountainsmith K-9 Backbowl

Nothing beats a collapsible dog bowl for hikes and camping trips, and Mountainsmith’s K-9 Backbowl is the latest portable innovation for your canine counterpart. The simple yet ingenious design is basically a pad that snaps at the corners to form a shallow yet roomy bowl capable of holding over a quart of food or water. Able to be folded, rolled, or stuffed into a pack or pocket, the 2.5-ounce Backbowl is about the lightest and most packable dog dish out there—which means it’s my new go-to bowl. Available at Grizzly Outfitters. $15;
