Space is always a concern in the kitchen; it can also be an issue in the great outdoors. While that might not make much sense at first considering that the great outdoors is both great and outdoors, people who enjoy their time in nature tend not to want to get bogged down with stuff. But getting away from it all doesn't have to mean getting away from everything.

No matter if hiking or camping, everybody has to stop sometime to eat. And that means, cutting, slicing, and dicing. For those looking to trek beyond gorp, the Snow Peak Set M Chopping Board consists of a folding wooden cutting board that houses a surprise. Tucked away inside of the prep tool is a chef's knife that fits snugly inside a custom-cut recess.

Weighing in at 16.6 ounces, the backpacking accessory provides a safe and easy way to transport an always useful utensil. When the cutting board is unfolded and the knife unleashed, eaters get about a 10x8-inch surface to work with, which translates to new eating opportunities. And that is certainly more appetizing than a diet consisting solely of good old raisins and peanuts.
