I am a student on the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration and we are currently working on a seminar project concerning spices and herbs. In the course of our project we found out that users prefer space-saving packaging when it comes to herbs and spices.

I believe that the need to save space as much as possible is a big issue when it comes to backpacking. Therefore I would like to ask you, how do you package your herbs and spices when you go backpacking, hiking or camping so they take out the least space possible? What are the problems you experience? Have you thought about your own space-saving solutions? Or do you know anyone who has?

I would be very greatful for any insights or comments to this issue. Thank you very much for your help!

The best invention for space-saving for such a case is the "ziploc" bag. It is not only space saving but by pressing out excess air the spices stay fresher. The bags are also waterproof!


They are NOT expensive at eg.

2000 bags 2"x3" for €6

200 bags 8"x10" for €5

When hiking, also good for protecting batteries, cell phones, medication, stationary .....

35mm film containers are good too.

I have a section on herbs and spices in my book Lipsmacking Backpacking. In essence, my experience is that i take the herbs in small plastic resealable bags - then i am able to stuff them into the small parts of my rucksack.

hope this helps !
