KID-APPROVED CAMPING FOOD: MREs were designed to nourish troops on the move, making them perfect for your high-exertion outdoor activities.
RUGGEDIZED MREs FOR YOUR OUTDOOR EXPEDITIONS: Lightweight, water-proof, impact-resistant, and hermetically sealed, MREs can handle the wear-and-tear of any adventure.
Have lunch in your canoe
You probably wouldn’t want to chow down while you’re in the middle of a lake, but with Meal Kit Supply MREs you could. Each 1,200 calorie MRE includes a flameless ration heater that allows you to have a hot meal whenever you want, wherever you want. Even better? It’s activated with only 30 mL of any type of water (puddles, snow, lakes-those are all OK!).
What makes MREs most suited to outdoor adventures is that they’re completely ruggedized-you can throw them into your crammed backpack and forget about them until it’s lunchtime (even if there’s a torrential down pour drenching your gear). MREs can tolerate being dropped into water or off a cliff because they’re water resistant, impact proof and hermetically sealed against contaminants and pests. This special seal means bears and other wildlife can’t smell the food items inside. MREs are super durable, making them perfect for the wear-and-tear of outdoor expeditions like hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and ATVing.
Like the troops MREs were designed for, you need proper nourishment to replenish the calories you’re burning. No one wants to gas out half way through portaging a canoe or hiking up a mountain-MREs will give you sustained energy, no matter the beating they take in your backpack.
What's the difference between MREs and freeze dried meals?
MREs are ready to eat, unlike freeze dried meals. So when you’ve been exerting yourself outside all day and want to avoid the hassle of starting a fire or assembling your camping stove to boil water, choose MREs. Preparing your camping food with a stove not only takes longer, but it translates to extra weight in your pack (the stove, fuel, and accessories). These qualities make MREs comparatively light-weight for the calories provided.
Quick preparation is great, but it isn’t the only benefit of the flameless ration heater; it presents an effective alternative to campfires in areas which prohibit them. As California and much of the west experiences their worst drought in over 1,200 years, fire restrictions in forest lands have become tighter. Don’t risk starting a forest fire for lunch when MREs offer fire-ban-friendly camping food.
When it comes to backpacking, you want lightweight food that requires minimal preparation and tastes great.
