Norwegian Rations available at German online-store Dauerbrot.de BUT they ask for €35 :shock: An arm and leg... Image

To expansive if you ask me for "just" this ration :cry: you will get 3 EPa´s or French ones for that :mrgreen:

Treesuit,

this is the manufacturers page: http://www.drytech.no/old/?page_id=40

They have dealers in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Danmark and UK.

The UK-dealer is asking GBP 5.50 - 8.00 for a single entree :shock: http://www.extremeoutdoorfood.co.uk/Products.html

All other dealers don´t have a homepage :cry:

Norge is from Norway, maybe he can give you a hand or further information about buying and shipping straight from Norway and keep the (shipping) costs low :?:

I have never tried any Mountain House freeze dried food, but I don´t know if the Norwegian is worthy to spend "tons of dollars" for postage if you have own (good) freeze dried available :?:

norwegian rations from the company drytech:
they do not sell complet army style rations to civilians only
large sales to the army :cry:

but you can buy single meals in sport stores and other places
but they cost 10 to 15$ yes you read rigth 10 to 15 us dollars!!!!

personaly i like the mountain house better than drytech ones
but they have a few good ones to :D

shipping from norway:carry on cash box=74 us $$ usa canada
=60 us $$ europa

if you use your own box and wraping=HOLY crap price :evil:

cheers norge

That is really annoying I thought the £8-£5 meals on that website Housil linked was for a whole mealtimes ration i.e. like an MRE with the drinks, jam, crackers etc, like our reviewers opened up and had. That would be fine.

But £8 for one freeze-dried pouch is too much.

They do not sell complete ration to public (i.e. non-Norwegian Military)? Just one packet?

Well i´ve had few of those norwegian MRE´s packs,and i use those,and find them really good,unless you end up with one containing that weird fish/seafood main course :).

id sure would like to get those more as i only have one pack left,its from norwegian unit serving in kosovo.

i think its just great how they pack the meals in that green tight package instead of any type of watersucking carton box,and its easy just to push thes einto your backpack,bdu trousers pocket etc.

the only thing i think,that would improve these would be few matches,paper and some sort of spoon-spork-gadget,maybe evev flameless heater but that would bee too much to ask i think.
