I'll be taking protein powders with me this coming season. Do you think if they're stored in ziplocs they'll stay dry? I'm kind of worried about condensation forming inside the bag, when they're hanging in the tree. Anyone have any experience with this? I was thinking about vacuum bagging, but that's a lot of extra effort/cost if I don't need to

I've used high quality whey isolate , whey concentrate and egg white protein over a 20 year period as well as whole milk powder to assure my daily requirements of protein. Faster to prepare before and during the trip and takes less storage space that other protein sources (meats, fish, etc.). Do not premix. Better to add and mix into cold meals (cereals, etc,) before adding water. For cooked meals add after cooking to avoid lumping or mix with a drink just before or after the meal.

I have been vacuum bagging the last 10 years or so but prior to that I used small Zip Lock sandwich bags for each individual day's needs and these individual daily bags were store in a studier large Zip Lock freezer bag. Always squeeze the air out of the bags before closing the zip. Have never had a moisture problem on trips up to a month.

Hope this helps.
