Sea to Summit has completely revamped their entire Camp Kitchen lineup, with three product families designed for everything from lightweight backpacking to full-on car camping. They also updated their sleeping bags and have all-new liners with some nifty features.

2024 Sea to Summit Camp Cookware

The three product lines are Frontier, Detour, and Passage. The first two are full lines, with everything from serving utensils and plates to cooking pots and more. There’s a lot, but here’s the overview of each with key features.

Sea to Summit Frontier

The Frontier line is for the lightweight, backpacking crowd looking for the smallest, lightest cookware. It’s 30% lighter than the X series it replaces, and it’s more rigid, yet with Llots of collapsible options. They do this by blending a non-stick, hard-anodized aluminum at the base and rim of the collapsible stuff, but with silicone sides.

The means you can cook with them over gas-flame camp stoves (not induction), but you wanna keep excess flames from lapping around on the silicone too much.

Bowls have glass-reinforced nylon to keep them stiffer so they hold their shape even when full. It’s also lighter than the material used on the X-series, too. There’s no metal, but they say these shouldn’t be microwaved.

Sea to Summit Detour

The Detour lineup is geared toward the car-camping, overland, and vanlife crowd. It’s their first-ever collapsible stainless steel cookware that can be used on both induction and gas flame stove tops. That gives you all the cooking options, but takes up much less space.

The collection also includes non-collapsible frying pans, plates, and utensils, all in stainless steel. There’s even a colander and small chef’s knives for a complete kitchen set.

Sea to Summit Passage

The Passage lineup is just dinnerware, no cookware, but they are microwaveable (and dishwasher safe). Plate, bowls, cup, and insulated mugs feature fluted ribbed walls for grip. Those ribs create a bit of space so you can comfortably hold them even if the food or drink inside is piping hot.

They’re made from BPA-free food grade glass-reinforced polypropylene, so they’re easy to clean and will hold their shape when loaded up with food.

New Sea to Summit Sleep Systems

Sea to Summit’s updated sleeping bags now use more sustainable fabrics and fills, using bluesign-approved materials and FSC-certified packaging.

The Spark Pro (shown here) is entirely new, taking an ultralight sleeping bag and adding a FreeFlow zipper system to make it easier to use. That lets you open it all the way up to use like a quilt, or zip open arm holes on either side and partially unzip the bottom to wear it. (video here)

It’s available in regular and long, in 15ºF and 30ºF ratings. Inside is 950+ Dry Down fill, the outer materials has a PFC-free DWR treatment. The new Ascent and Spark sleeping bags have similar features, but the Ascent has a slightly wider foot area. All are available in men’s and women’s versions.

New Sea to Summit sleeping bag liners

All-new Sleeping Bag Liners get a drawstring closure at the foot and snap shoulder straps to help it move with you while you’re sleeping. And, if you need to get up in the middle of the night for a bathroom stroll, just keep it on.

They range from $40 to $110, with varying thicknesses and materials to give them a wide range of uses from summer (used on their own, no bag necessary) through winter. The Reactor Extreme has infrared-absorbing ceramic particles to boost warmth in extremely cold conditions.
