Food + Heat + Mug = Portable hot meals
At less than $6 a meal, these pouches are better than any kangaroo. We've tasted and they surpass edible to downright good. The Pasta Primavera is a little dull but trade it with a vegetarian.
Boils 16oz of water in a flash. Oh, that's exactly the amount needed for the Mountain House meal above. Save some money and get the larger fuel instead of 2 small ones. You'll need it.
Holy shit this is sized perfectly for your 16oz Jetboil and backpacker meals.
Here's the hack: Dump in your food pouch and hot water, stir, and seal this baby up. It'll stay hot for 10+ hours. Toss it in your backpack and you have hot food all night (bring a spoon). Sunrise snack attack? You got it! The cap doubles as a serving bowl and it's backed by Stanley's lifetime warranty.
