The only camping utensil set on our buyer guide made from aircraft aluminum alloy is made by the aptly named Sea to Summit. The design looks relatively straightforward at first, as a spoon, knife and fork all hand from a carabiner that can be attached to your backpack. The hole on the end of each piece of cutlery – the same hole that the carabiner passes through – can be used as a wrench. Cleverly, the holes are all different sizes (3mm, 4mm and 5mm) so you can tighten nuts of the respective sizes. To make the utensils as light as they are strong, the manufacturers cut out stylish holes down the shaft of each item. This is sure-fire one of the most innovative designs of camping utensils sets.
