Mountain House

Chicken and Rice MCW

Most backcountry adventurers have tried the classic Mountain House meals you can find at your local Wal-Mart, but MCW’s take backpacking nutrition further. They are similar to the fan-favorite Rice & Chicken Meal but are formulated for special operations with more chicken meat for extra protein. This entree contains 650 calories and 44 grams of protein. Enjoy!

Bob's Red Mill

Peanut Butter + Jelly and Peanut Butter Banana Oat Bars

Bob Moore founded Bob’s Red Mill 40 years ago with the mission of bringing people back to basics with nutritious whole grains and minimally processed foods. Since then, our company has expanded greatly—due in large part to Bob’s vision and incredible work ethic—but it hasn’t strayed from that core mission.  

Bob’s focus on bringing whole grains to the table and beyond has fueled our recent expansion into the grab and go market. In addition to our gluten-free and organic oatmeal cups, we debuted muesli cups and five flavors of Bob’s Better Bars, a wholesome snack made from whole grain oats, peanut butter and organic honey.”

Vermont Smoke & Cure

Original Beef + Pork and Maple Teriyaki Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

Made in Vermont with meat that is free from antibiotics, hormones, and preservatives, these aren’t the meat sticks you once knew. Portable, great-tasting, never dried out, gluten-free protein, whenever you need it.

Check out their line of grass-fed and original meats that are consciously crafted and deliberately delicious. Vermont Smoke House meat sticks ride perfectly in your pack, so be sure to check them out. 

Honey Stinger

Caramel Stroopwaffle and Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Cracker Bar

We need to fuel our bodies. That’s why we founded Honey Stinger: to turn honey — nature’s ideal performance fuel — into fast, sustained energy and food-based nutrition for athletes of all kinds.

Maybe you’re like us, testing yourself in the mountains and ticking off milestones on a training plan... Or maybe you’re muscling through football practice, sweating it out in the gym, or racing your first 10k. 

Whatever your activity may be, with its lower glycemic index, honey gives you the quick, steady energy you need to perform at your best, without the spikes and crashes you get from other simple sugars. Honey Stinger is easy on the stomach, which matters that much more when the miles are piling up.
