Sea To Summit X-Cup Foldable Resilient Heat Resistant Food-Grade Silicone, Description and Overview.
When folded, the X-Cup is quite compact 95×12 mm. It does not take up much space in a bag, backpack or pouch. The dense ring forming its upper edge provides relative rigidity to the entire structure, thereby simplifying the operation process itself and adding a stability-filled expansion cup to the unfolded state.

The X-Cup folding cup is designed for use with both cold and hot foods, drinks and dishes. Of course, provided that there is a container where they can be brewed or cooked. For obvious reasons, the cup cannot be used on an open fire directly. Due to its small size, this cup is perfect for people whose activities are associated with frequent business trips. And it will also be almost ideal for picking various NAZ and stackings. Including car emergency kits and survival kits.
Inside the walls of the X-Cup cup are clearly visible separate measuring scales in milliliters and ounces, which makes it possible to use it as measuring dishes for liquid or bulk products during cooking on a camping trip or a simple one-day outing to nature and a picnic. The designations at the bottom of the X-Cup tell us that it works in the temperature range from minus 40 to plus 180 degrees Celsius. That is, you can freeze water in it to make ice or make tea, immediately pouring boiling water into a cup.
The wineglass-fork icon on the bottom of the cup indicates that it is suitable for contact with food. The compatibility of the material from which the walls of the cup are made with alcoholic beverages is unknown, there are no corresponding symbols. And the manufacturer on his official website in the X-Cup description is silent about this. Therefore, it’s not worth risking and pouring alcohol into this cup, but use some kind of stainless steel container.
