Making your own trail side meal is almost a right of passage for the serious outdoorsman and woman. Who hasn't experimented with dehydrating apple slices or ventured into home made jerky?? 

(If you're new to dehydrating, check out our beginner blogs: 5 Best Fruits To Dehydrate At Home; 3 Tips to create Gourmet DIY Dried Meals; "Elixir of Health" Fruit Leather.)

Making your own DIY backpacking meals isn't a new trend sweeping the outdoor industry. In fact, if you're on of those who don't like to purchase premade food or like to supplement purchased meals with their own dried meals, then you probably know this as freezer bag cooking. 

Years ago when I first started getting serious about making my own trail food, I struggled to find pouches that I felt comfortable using in the backcountry. And I've heard from many of you over the past year that this is something you also struggle with!

Many of you have reached out due to your thru hiking prep and asked if we sell our pouches (sans food!) Because of this, we've decided to put our bags up for purchase on our store!

Our pouches are best suited for single serve meals or snacks due to the size. The pouches can be heat sealed on top; you can pull a vacuum with these pouches, but you need a machine that does not require a grooved pouch as our pouches are not grooved. 

Write a description of your dried product, such as ingredients, date dried, and how much water to add, on the front of the bag in a permanent marker! With the clear window, you'll be able to see into the pouch as well in case you forget exactly what you made! 

Pouch Details:

  • bag size: 7.3 inches tall by 6.7 inches wide with a 4 inch bottom gusset
  • bag quantity: single meal
  • bag weight: 11 grams

Pouch Uses:

  • approved for food contact
  • approved for use with boiling water
  • resealable 
  • two tear notches
  • gusseted bottom
  • BPA free

Happy trails!
