If heading out for only a few days and not doing resupplies, packing daily rations in gallon-size Ziploc bags is sufficient for most conditions and will still keep you organized. Canoe and kayak campers can see the advantages of vacuum sealing food for trips of any duration.
Recommended Bag Sizes:
Bagettes品牌塑料拉链袋可以在2 x 3,3 x 5和4 x 6尺寸的大多数工艺品上购买，但它们是不是FDA批准用于食品储存. I have used these and I’m still alive, but it’s a better idea to go with food grade.
Single serving meals fit in 4 X 6 or sandwich-size bags, but if you are packing double portions for two people then quart-size bags work best.
Tip:Glad brand snack-size bags can be cut into two 2 x 3 inch bags for packing milk and cheese powders. Cut the bag in two places two inches from each side. Reseal the cut sides with tape.
Assemble Meals & Desserts
Now it’s time to fill your plastic bags with all that healthy goodness you have dried or purchased.
Write down each day’s menu on a paper towel and pull the items needed from the piles around the kitchen – it will look like an assembly line. Remember to allow anything that was in the freezer to return to room temperature before opening.

留下袋子未密封。在袋子的密封件之间放一张小纸，以使它们一直密封。当您清除外包袋时，空气将被挤出内部的小袋子。例外：关闭含有粉末的2 x 3袋，因为粉末已经取代空气，您不希望任何粉末吸入真空封口机。
Daily Rations go into Vacuum Seal Bags
Each day’s rations weigh about a pound and a half.

For under $10, a great accessory to use with your vacuum sealer is the食品宽嘴罐封口机. Your vacuum sealer needs to have a canister tube port in order to use one. The jar sealer attachment slides down over the top of the jar and sucks out the air which seals the lid tightly to the jar. It's not hard to pry off the lid, use some of the food you need, and then reseal the jar. No need to waste vacuum seal bags.
