Sea to Summit adds to its Leave No Trace range an ultra light version of the well known 10 Liter Kitchen Sink. High-tech materials such as Ultra-Sil fabric, Hypalon carry handles and a Delrin stiffener ring mean this sink is small enough to fit in a pocket and light enough to barely leave a trace on a set of scales.

Update: took the sink on my last backpacking adventure. The sink just out right sucks. Just ordered a new sink from a different vendor. What a total waste of money. If I thought I could get my money back from Sea & Summit I would. Shame, I have a few of their products from a top of the line sleeping bag to other gizmos all good stuff no complaints. But this sink has put a fire under my ass. In a nut shell it just outright doesn't work.
I was excited to see this product on the shelf. I've used the older style kitchen sink for a long time for car camping, but it never makes it into my backpacking kit due to weight. The weight of this thing is amazing and it should be a very handy item in the back country, but, it simply doesn't hold water. The stabilizing ring is made of nylon and it has memory for the way it is stored. Mine came in a frustrating figure 8 shape that wouldn't allow the sink to hold water at any level. I spent an annoying weekend camp trip trying to straighten it for hours whilst sitting around camp.
I came home quite frustrated and looked for reviews. I did see the other reviewer here who said they wrote to StS and how you can fix this issue with hot water. Sorry, not quite. This thing is not going to "pop" back into shape ever. I found a video on Youtube that StS has posted about the issue. When I tried to get the rim straight, I did just like in the video, with only slightly better results. The water temp needs to be just perfect and the rim as straight as possible. As soon as the temp becomes cooler, the rim will set with whatever kinks are in it at the time. Even with the rim mostly straight, the sink doesn't have enough rigidity to really do the job, as soon as you start sloshing around your dishes, it will spill. Then once the sink goes back in the case, back to "Figure 8".
Honestly, it's essentially a bucket, it shouldn't be that much work. I"m certain StS know it's a problem. They've disabled comments on their video and though it's not proof, my feeling is many other people are complaining as well.
Thumbs down on the product and thumbs down to Sea to Summit, because they know this product isn't up to par and they still sell it. If they went back to the old style steel ring, they'd pick up a bit more weight but the product would be functional at least. The way it is now, it simply doesn't make the cut at all.Skip it and save yourself the frustration and $30 odd.
"First of all, I'm very sorry to learn that you've experienced problems with your UltraSil Kitchen Sink
The reason why the sink would not stand upright and hold water is because the stiffener ring became kinked in the extended period where it remained compressed from manufacture, through shipping, storage in our warehouse and storage at Amazon.
Fortunately, correcting the problem is really easy:
Just immerse the sink in hot water, the stiffener ring will un-kink and the sink should work perfectly.
Make sure that the water you use isn't hotter than 60°C / 140°F (boiling water can damage the seam tape); three or four minutes soaking with the ring completely immersed should solve the problem."
I tried it, and it worked perfectly. It will "rekink" after you put it back in the pouch, but snaps back into shape after a few minutes. Sea to Summit also recommends storing it open, when not in use.
