humangear is proud to announce the newest addition to our product family: the GoBites portable utensils.
GoBites have been in development for over two years. We wanted to create eating tools that many different types of people can use in many different situations, and we wanted to make them simple, extremely durable, and a joy to use. We're confident that we've achieved all of that and more with GoBites.
Uno is our take on what a hybrid utensil should be. We've evolved the tool in notable ways, with smarter tool ends and a more comfortable form. We think it will find a home with ultra-light backpackers, people craving simplicity, the space-conscious, and those on a budget.
Duo is a decidedly clever two-piece fork and spoon set. A unique interlock mechanism allows the tools to nest in an extremely compact form for transport and storage. Each tool has been carefully sized to be comfortable when used separately and to fit together end-to-end making a single tool (for rehydrated meal bags, deep containers, etc.). As a single tool, Duo is longer than any comparable "long reach" utensil.
Trio is our premium, full-featured offering, with an extended-length spoon, fork, and knife (yes, that actually cuts). The whole set comes in a beautiful case that keeps everything organized, clean, and at the ready. We spent months designing the utensil positioning to create a case size that seems impossibly thin. Small, considered touches like a metal bottle opener in the knife and a custom, wedge/pointed toothpick round out the ultimate on-the-go eating set.
GoBites are made with a special BPA-free nylon material that is amazingly strong--strong enough to back them with a lifetime warranty.

Can I bring a Trio on an airplane, specifically in my carry-on luggage?
We believe GoBite Trios fully comply with carry-on restrictions and can be taken on planes without issue. TSA prohibits knives *except for plastic or round bladed butter knives. GoBite Trios fit into this exception.
