Description

These insulated cozies are custom-designed to keep backpacking meals hot and prevent "undercooked" meals during cold and windy conditions or at high elevations. Insert the meal pouch into the cozy during meal rehydration and close it with the velcro closure. The protective pouch will keep your meal 17% hotter on average when used with a standard backpacking food pouch and 30% hotter with freezer bags (see test results below).

 

  • The insulated cozy is custom-designed to fit with Outdoor Herbivore's backpacking meals and boil-soak rehydration pouches. 
  • 100% washable, durable construction with a textile exterior and an internally lined insulative material. No resins, tapes, or glues to melt or break down during washing.
  • Velcro closure to prevent heat loss.
  • Hand-sewn in Washington, USA, by Discovering Wilderness.
