We believe that what you eat is one of the key components of how you feel on the trail. The optimal backpacking menu is a little different from what is considered a balanced diet in our regular home-bound lives. The food should not only be nutritious but also light and packable - you don't want your backpack to become too heavy and bring you torture.
We developed delicious and nutritious entrees and picked the snacks in a way that you get enough calories, protein, and micronutrients to sustain high energy levels during the long and challenging hiking days. We tested our kits in the field and made sure that we can not just survive on them, but would be happy to eat like this on any of our hikes.
The main principle to choose pots and stoves in our rental kit was the convenience to cook and clean and the weight and packability of the kit. We believe that cooking on the trail should be fun and enjoyable and not a chore. So we select the lightest titanium pots for cooking and provide Jetboils for quick water boiling for larger groups (you don't want to fight over who gets the tea first, right?)
