You're hunting elk in Montana. You have room for 1 meal in your pack. MRE or store-bought dehydrated meal?

      I like to vacum seal food for short trips. It's cheaper and taste better.

        MRE Chicken and Rice. You've got Tabasco in there, pepper, salt, it's own little heating system, and it's as compact as you can get in a ready to go meal. Not all MRE meals taste bad, and you can get a ton of them at Surplus stores. Not to mention they'll last you forever.

          The MRE's are packed with calories- better choice if you get stranded- you can stretch it a couple of days, and you don't need to add water or cook it.

            MRE, hands-down! There is 2000 calories packed in there if you eat it all. That is enough for a whole day. There are portions of the meal that you don't prepare at all, others can be heated up or mixed with water. The very best part of the MRE is that there is a flameless ration heater in there. You add some water, slip in your entree and wait about 10 minutes while it gets warmed up. It's a perfect mid-day pick-me-up, to get some hot chow in your belly to keep you going down the trail.
            If you had to pack a lot of food on your back I would go with the mountain house as it is much lighter and takes up less space, but it takes water and time to prepare, and a mess-kit to eat it out of. A little more complicated.
            If I was bringing only one meal it would be an MRE with a heater (check the box).

                MRE - they are cheaper and you only have to use about 2 ounces of your water to prepare it. They are loaded with all the essentials you need to function in harsh environments, or the military wouldn't be using them...

                      MRE's are handy and serve there purpose, but I am a big fan of making my own jerky and snacks in a dehydrator. Not to mention I really like the taste of it. Pack some water tabs and your good to go.

                            MRE, they are high calorie, come with a condiment pack, cheap, easy to heat, and taste pretty good.

                              MRE's are cheap and high caloried and not all of them are terrible tasting. I actually had a decent chicken and noodles one lately.

                              This is my 100th answer. Me and my dad (we both answer peoples questions on this account) thank you for letting us help!
