I've had great luck with these as well, but after trying other brands, I stick strictly to Zip loc & Freezer
If you plan to do a lot, a $50 vacuum sealers, and rolls of 4, 6, 8 or 12" width vac plastic sleeve works well. This is some tough plastic that handles boiling water very nicely, and you can make your packages a couple of inches to 100 ft long. You don't have to vacuum the air out either, it's an optional step that greatly increases shelf life, but if you wanted to package delicate stuff, then you can skip the vacuum and just do the seal (you can also do partial vacuum).
And Wait! there's more - they also have preconfigured bags that have zip lock built in. I have not tried any of those as I tend to be largely concerned their volume, shape, stackability, weight...
And If You Call In The Next 15 Minutes - you might consider a lower end food dehydrator. When I do extended outings, food bulk, shape and weight become considerations. I have an LRP menu spreadsheet that makes sure I get 3,000, properly balanced cals per day at between 1.25 and 1.50 lbs per day (including packaging). I decide package configuration.
Of course the latter is not for everybody, but is my preference. I have nuts, dried meats, partially dried cheeses, cereal mixes, powdered milk, taters... All ready to go, weeks to months in advance. For those who just want to pack up a few items or want to package fresh fruits or the like, the Zip locs work just fine IMO.
