I like my Ramen as much as anyone, but I also find myself with a few “Hollywood” dinners in my pack from time to time. I’m partial to Mountain House. ( Is it just me or are there a growing plethora of good, tasty, Expensive, dehydrated and freeze dried meals on the market). Anyway, back to my question.... I am looking for a way to carry the MH, but lessen the bulk in my food bag. Other than buying only the ProPak MH, does anyone do anything clever on this matter.. poke a hole, squeeze the air, tape over? Remove from pouch, place in ziplock, maybe carry one MH pouch and clean, reuse?

I know I’m nitpicking, but I think about this every time my food bag reaches the max, fill line, can’t quite get all in, level. Thanks for any creative ideas.
