Pili Hunters

Himalayan Salt Pili Nuts Snack Pack, Raw Cacao Pili Nuts Snack Pack and Cacao Nut Butter Packet

The Pili Nut is Earth’s highest fat nut. Each nut is hand-harvested from pili trees grown in the wild Filipino rainforest under the shadow of nearby volcanoes. The rich soil lends to the extraordinarily high mineral content found in each nut and after harvesting, the nuts are individually hand-shucked, soaked and sprouted to make these nutrients more bioavailable.

The Pili Hunters team believes that food should be in as close to it’s natural, wild state as possible; every bag of Pili Hunters Nuts and packet of Expedition Pili Butter are better than organic, they’re wild. They’re packed with healthy, satiating fats, and provide an abundant source of magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and manganese with every bite, making them a perfect fuel source for long adventures and perfect for the keto traveler.  #FindYourExpedition

Old Trapper

Traditional and Peppered Jerky

For over 40 years, Old Trapper has made the world’s best beef jerky at our headquarters in Forest Grove, Oregon. The Old Trapper legend began with our original Old Fashioned Beef Jerky. We season lean cuts of real steak, add brown sugar for just the right hint of sweetness, and smoke them to perfection using real wood in our smokehouses. The result is tender, never tough jerky that will be the best you’ve ever tasted. Available in barbecue, chipotle, hot and spicy, peppered, teriyaki, and old fashioned. We’re from Oregon, but we’re available everywhere. Try Old Trapper Beef Jerky, you won’t be disappointed.


Cocoa Noshes

An NYC girl addicted to fitness and running half marathons, Leeann combined her culinary degree, passion for health, and love of a favorite childhood ingredient to create delicious healthy buckwheat snacks for the adventurous lifestyle. Despite its name, buckwheat is actually a gluten-free seed, a complete plant-based protein, a good source of fiber, and highly sustainable. Buckwheat is combined with a few other whole food plant-based ingredients, and absolutely no added sugar in these BuckWHAT Noshes! 

Food for the Sole

Triple Peanut Slaw

Food for the Sole’s elevates the adventure meals market by making foods that taste amazing, using only carefully selected ingredients with healthy meal choices. The Triple Peanut Slaw salad was their first recipe and was created to satisfy the craving for veggies on the trail. Initially made in response to some ultralight backpackers that don’t carry a stove and wanted great re-hydratable food, it was first tested by a couple of John Muir Trail backpackers. The report back was “MORE PLEASE!”
