    Ok concept, but the big advantage of MRE's are that they are "Meals Ready to Eat". These all require prep to consume and some large amounts of water.

    Also the guy is wrong with the 3 to 5 year shelf life. Ramen Noodles have a 1 year shelf life and the oils in them "can" go rancid over time.

    this is more like what i started doing for backpacking trips. keeps things neater and tighter in the bag but still requires extra water.
