Backpacker's Pantry Backpacking Meals

Backpacking

LIGHTWEIGHT, TRAIL-READY OUTDOOR MEALS, CRAFTED FOR BACKPACKING

Whether you’re doing an overnighter or a multi-day trek, backpacking light is the way to go. Packing enough food to fuel your body is vital but ounces become pounds when you start moving. Our Backpacker's Pantry lightweight, freeze-dried camping meals are not only light, but easy, convenient, and ready in minutes while you soak your trail-weary feet in a cold alpine stream. The way we see it, we’ll take care of feeding your body while you nourish that soul of yours on your path to discovering your deepest nature.

Just add water to our lightweight and nutrient packed meals and you’ll have calorie-dense, nutritious freeze-dried camping meals to fuel your hiking, camping, packrafting, river rafting, bike packing, backpacking and backcountry adventures that start with something fun and end with, “-ing.” It all starts with healthy, calorie-filled backpacking meals in your pack, van, or tote. 

Backpacker’s Pantry takes the guesswork out of meal planning for vegan and vegetarian adventurers, too. We offer one of the largest protein-packed vegan and vegetarian-friendly outdoor menus. Not just for foodies, Backpacker’s Pantry has fueled athletes, explorers, and adventurers for decades with meals based on real recipes inspired by the world’s best cuisine, like our Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken, Three Cheese Mac and Cheese, Green Curry, and Risotto. Kid and family friendly, here are some of our all-time favorite staff picks that will keep your stomach one happy customer from breakfast through dessert.
