Nuts, fruit and dried foods

Stop and refuel

Looking to restock the pantry on your back (commonly referred to as a pack)? You’re in the right place. It's not hard to work up an appetite when you’re out on the trail, so it’s smart to keep some snacks on hand for when you need to do some munching between mealtimes. Look around and take your pick from these wholesome snacks and freeze-dried delights.
