Introduction: MRE Heat Retention Pouch / Heating Sleeve

About: I'm the kind of guy Who likes to figure out how everything works ! I Love Re-Purposing Old equipment for something it was not designed for. If it has Wire,Gears, plumbing, Lighting, Cooking, or Woodwork; I'm A…

So one of my hobbies includes watching the unboxing and eating of MRE's on YouTube (Meals ready to eat) and I always hear that the FRH (Field ration heater) doesn't do the job. All they have to hold the heat in was a thin cardboard box.

So i thought why not make a insulated pouch!


pipe insulation (Silver backed bubble wrap)



Aluminum or Duct tape

Step 1: Measure Up

measure the MRE while in the heating pouch. you want to leave a little space to make it easier to insert and remove

Step 2: Seal Up and Test!

use the tape of your choice to seal 2 of the 3 open sides

you could put some decorative fabric or army camo to dress in up a bit

Hope this help soldiers and Civilians alike !

Take care,
