A super light, super simple pocket to keep food warm while it rehydrates.
REDUCES WEIGHT AND CAMP TRASH

Have your own cooking assistant at the end of every day!

The REpack Freezer Bag Cook System, like most Hyperlite Mountain Gear products, offers you an opportunity to simplify and lighten your load. Repackaging dehydrated food into freezer bags is a great way to decrease pack weight, the amount of space food packets take up, and the amount of waste they produce. It’s also a chance to modify meals or make your own.

Place the repackaged food bag in the pouch. Add hot water to the meal and take care of other business around camp. REpack serves to keep food warm longer while it rehydrates.

Hot food & very much worth it!!!

I repacked my meal into foil pouch…put that bad boy in my hyperlyte…was almost too hot to eat after 30 minutes @ 8k feet in Montana. Was the most rehydrated meal I’ve had out in the field & think that’s cause of my new hyperlite pouch!!!!

Just Okay

For packability, meaning I can squish in my bear can, it gets a five. For keeping food warm while rehydrating it is less than impressive. While freezer bags and food fit nicely, by the time the food is ready it is no longer warm. Just not enough 'insulation'. I'll keep using for the convenience but going out knowing my food will be slightly cooler.

Light / Great for Rehydrating

I had been using a d.i.y., which was functional. This works much better for hydrating and holding warmth and while eating. It does seem a little pricey.

Necessary? No. Handy? Yes—under the right circumstances.

Full disclosure: I bought the REpack because it seemed a little silly. You read that right. I bought this item because I was _skeptical_ of its utility. That said, on extended solo trips (where resupply simply wasn't feasible) I had struggled to transport the necessary amount of calories in a sufficiently small space. It seemed like the REpack could help solve that issue and it mostly does. You do get some weight savings: the difference between a quart-sized Ziploc bag and the packaging from the average commercial dehydrated/ freeze dried meal is 10.3g; keep in mind—however—that the REpack itself weighs 39.7g so you need to use it for at least 4 meals before you "break even" on weight. It also doesn't really reduce overall waste so much as it reduces the waste you have to pack out. Ziploc bags _are_ smaller and lighter. That's good. But you've thrown away the original packaging for your meal and you're also going to throw away the Ziplocs. Could you wash and re-use them? Yes. Will they hold up very long? Unclear: freezer bags are intended to be durable but they weren't designed to have boiling water poured into them repeatedly and you won't know that one is about to fail until it does (at which point, you have a slightly more serious problem). I am also [perhaps overly] cautious of bears, so I wind up putting the smaller bags in a larger (1 or 2 gallon) Ziploc or OP sack to limit the scents.

Now it probably sounds like I'm not sold on the REpack, but that's not quite true.…

Works great!

As advertised! It fits into my bearikade too!

My dinner and breakfast are a ziploc baggie rehydration process. This is perfect for my qrt sized bags. Good-to Go meal packaging fits in it very nicely too.
