great for bear canisters

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Mountain House's Pro Pak options are great for multi day outings, they're streamlined and have a slim profile as compared to their big brother. I've tried the Pro Pak Beef Stew as well as the Pro Pak Lasagna, they taste like what we've all come to expect from Mountain House. As the name implies they pack exceptionally well. In a bear canister like say the Garcia you could fit a considerable amount of food in your canister. Ashley and I took a series of day hikes while in Arches National Park, no intention of eating on the trail, though its always good to have a contingency. Now while hiking in a dessert climate our day packs tend to be geared toward Hydration and Hydration accessories. Still we make sure to have essential equipment, in addition to a SOL survival blanket, camp stove and basic survival kit in the event of a worst case scenario. I like gear that's only to be used in a last ditch type scenario to be compact and orderly, and having a meal option that can fit in a day pack pocket designed for sunglasses is about as compact and orderly as one can hope for.



  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Mountain house food is delicious and convenient to carry in your backpack.

I ate this food for 5 days in a hiking trip in the Andes and was very pleased with the natural flavor and weight


Good eats

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This settles good in your stomach. Its not the tastiness, but I can eat the entire thing myself and it definitely packs in the calories and feels like you are eating something substantial. My first choice always


mediocre backpacking meal

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am not a fan of eating dehyrated meals for weeks on end. This meal is good, but nothing special


Love this stuff!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Pretty great for trail food! Very convenient & lightweight! No complaints.


Used for emergency kit

  • Gender:Male

I picked up many different meals and sizes of this product for an emergency kit rather than for use camping or backpacking. I have used this brand for backpacking in the past and I am always impressed with their flavor and how fulfilling the meals are.


I got some beef with beef stew!

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great meal choice. So great that I gorged a little bit and actually ate both servings of this by myself


Beefy Stew is more like it!

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

What can you say,Mountain House sets the standard when it comes to freeze dried "MRE"s.Their Beef Stew is no exception,easy to fix and all it takes is boiling water and a spork.


Beef, its what's for dinner!!

    Makes a hearty serving of beef stew. Tastes good after a long morning hike up the trail. Small packaging makes these a must to take on a backpacking trip. Only thing I recommend is to add a little salt and pepper to it after its done cooking, just to add a little more flavor.
