Current Best Before Dates1 answer
Just wondering what the best before date is for the current stock of these packs? Thanks

The ration packs themselves don't have a best before date, but the individual components which are all products that are also available individually, do. Each pack will have a range of different used by dates depending on the item, but they're largely between 2025/2026. Hope that helps.

Howdy folks. Just wondering what the total calories are for this pack?

Unfortunately we don't have any of these ration packs currently instock here for us to look at, and this information is not provided by the supplier. As a general rule the small of single backcountry meals would average around the 350cal mark each, so with just those three alone you'd be up to 1000cal ...adding in the additional snacks, etc and given that this is a pack designed for a days worth of food, you'd be looking at 1500 atleast. I'd guess closer to the 2000cal mark. I'm sorry we're not able to give you an exact figure, but hopefully that helps.

I've just had a quick gander at the Back Country Cuisine Classic Emergency Ration Packs we've got on the shelf. All of the packs inside the outer pack were dated with best before of either November 2020 or November 2021. So you'll have a bit over two years from now to use them.
