XMRE is the newest company to enter the civilian MRE market. Their core product is the “XMRE 1300XT”, a case with either 6 or 12 MREs containing an average of 1,300 calories per MRE. But XMRE also offers a couple of other variations – the “XMRE 3000XT” 24-hour ration and the “XMRE Blue Line” MRE with around 1,100 calories per MRE.

All of XMRE’s MREs contain the usual shelf-stable, ready-to-eat food items that can be found in either official US MREs or other brands of civilian MREs. XMRE does, however have a few parts, such as their Nut Raisin Mixes, that are custom-produced just for them.

XMRE Contents

Each XMRE 1300XT MRE contains one entree, 1 bread/cracker item, 2-3 snack/side items, 1-2 beverages, a flameless ration heater, and an accessory pack containing a spoon, napkin, salt/pepper, sugar, creamer, coffee, and a moist towelette.

XMRE does not have a set menu – they vary the contents of their MRE from one production run to the next. They also do not have a set policy of providing a certain number of vegetarian or breakfast-based MREs per case. The trade-off you get from not having these specific things is that you get a constant variety of different food so as you slowly refresh/update your MRE supply over the year, you can be sure that you will not have to suffer from MRE menu boredom.

 

Price

A case of 12 XMRE 1300XT MREs currently sells for $115.99 and includes free shipping. While this does put XMRE up into the higher range of civilian MRE prices (such as the Sopakco Sure-Pak 12 MREs for $89), you at least get around 20% more food and what appears to be a slightly better variety of food.

For ordering information, please see their product page.

Here’s a closer look at an XMRE 1300XT case. On the back of each individual MRE is a label listing the menu and exact contents of the XMRE – a very handy label!

MRE Review

XMRE was kind enough to send us a case of their latest MREs so here’s a quick look at the contents of a case from 2014:

MRE bag – very nice custom design and layout. I especially like all the nutritional information on the back of the bag!
