Ok, the product is fine as advertised. It's an emergency supply of food for 1 adult for 3 days (remember to have enough water). I like to bring Mountain House packs with me when I go motorcycle camping or backpacking. They're light, easy to pack, and I enjoy them. Sometimes they take the role of "just in case" food, and sometimes they serve as a planned meal. The chili mac with beef is a personal favorite, as is the beef stroganoff. I'm not particularly fond of beef stroganoff usually, but there's something about a savory meal when camping. Mountain House meals typically taste better than many of the freeze-dried alternatives.

So why did I say "almost perfect?" Well, I'd prefer it if they sold this kit with the 2-serving packets. I'm usually moto-camping or backpacking with someone. It's super-convenient to have one package for two people. Less waste. On the plus side, it's not 5-serving packages like some other emergency kits. Since it's advertised for one person, this is expected.

Second, the vegetable packs (which are 2-serving packs, though I'm guessing are intended for a single person) are a waste for a home emergency kit. Get canned vegetables instead. The vegetable packs are great for backpacking, as they will help keep your digestive system happy. They don't come out quite as good as canned vegetables, but they're much lighter.

If you are debating between this and MREs, there's a few things to consider:
1) Personally, I think MREs don't taste as good as Mountain House meals
2) MREs don't require a stove and fuel (MRE heating packs)
3) MREs don't require additional water (true of canned foods, too)

I do have MREs occasionally for moto-camping, but not for backpacking, as I prefer the Mountain House meals.

Mountain House has been around a long, long time. They have put a lot of effort into improving their product over the years and the current food is really very tasty considering it is freeze-dried. All of the entrees we've tried have been very good. (Although of course we haven't tried them all and there may be some that barely resemble food. Like anything else, personal taste will be the deciding factor. Adding some spices, hot sauce, etc. to your stash will make a world of difference. ) And the seven year shelf life is nice. The only caveat is that as with any pre-packaged "kit" you cannot simply take their word for how long something is supposed to last, or for how many people. You have to look at the number of calories and do the math and decide for yourself how much you will want or need. Will this keep you from starving? Sure. But if you have the foresight to "be prepared" surely you can plan to do better than just not "starving." And consider that in many of the scenarios where you might really need this food, increased physical activity and the greatly increased calorie requirements that brings might be the order of the day. We have five day's worth of MH food for three people, but we did it by doing the calculations and deciding how much we needed/wanted. And it's a much bigger pile than what this package might lead you to believe is sufficient. Lastly, in addition to adequate drinking water, don't forget the water needed to prepare the food (and although not strictly required, a way to heat the water is a huge plus.)

After receiving my 72-Hr kit for one person, the first thing I noticed on the outside of the box was the expiration date of 2016, which means the items would have been manufacturered one year ago (7 year shelf life). After opening the box, all items however did have a 2017 expiration date around May.

After looking through the items, I've come to the conclusion that I'd rather purchase the items separately in the packets for 2 people. The cost average for the single person entrees is about $7.00 in this "kit" ($7.00 x 6 = $42) and the vegetables about $2.00 each ($2.00 x 3). If you notice the prices of the same entrees for 2 people purchased separately, the cost of the 2 person entrees is significantly less or equal in price.

The vegetables however, are only available in single serving packets, and the price ranges from $2.25 - $3.00 individually.

If your looking for entrees, purchase the items separately in 2 people servings, and get more food for the same price! Then purchase the three packs of veggies, for an increased cost of about $10.00. Get more food for only $10 more overall!

The only two "perks" of this purchase was free shipping.
And the small box which is very light and easy to carry.

I however won't purchase it again.

I took this kit, along with some additions (Clif Bars, trail mix, Top Ramen, oatmeal, etc.) on a 5 day backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada. These were the perfect hot meals that were easy to cook up, just put the right amount of hot water in the pouch and zip it up and wait. Cooking, then adding one of the veggie pouches filled our bellies nicely at the end of the day. Breakfasts were light, yet filling enough to get you started on the trail in the morning. Do pay attention to the calorie count though. This pack will feed you for 72 hours in an emergency, but not at the full amount of calories you need over time.
