The BlenderBottle GoStak is a portable storage unit which is designed to allow for nutritious eating while on the go. The GoStak 4-pack consists of four containers of varying sizes which all stack and screw tightly together, forming an air-tight seal. Each container holds everything from snacks to vitamins and supplement powders, and the containers are designed to fit the BlenderBottle blending unit, which enables you to blend your supplement drinks or powders into drinks.
I was sent a GoStak 4-pack for review for camping and hiking purposes and found them to be a great solution for outdoor enthusiasts. The reusable, easy-to-clean system of interlocking jars makes carrying anything from snacks to entire meals nice and simple.

Common Product Uses
The GoStak is popular for use in storing fresh fruits and vegetables for snacking, as well as any dips you may want. It is also perfect for storing vitamins and supplement powders, as well as liquids, during workouts. The containers vary in size, making it easy to take a number of items with you in one convenient spot. It claims to be completely air-tight, and the handle makes toting the unit very easy. More interestingly for me, the GoStak is great for using while day hiking, and I could even see using these on overnight trips instead of taking certain foods in plastic bags. They are light enough that tucking the GoStak into your backpack is a convenient way to bring certain foods with you in the backcountry for easy access. Or I could also see using these for storing blueberries and salmon berries you find along the trail during your summer month hikes.
What People are Saying about the GoStak
A number of reviews are available which deal with both pros and cons of this product. The vast majority of consumers who purchased the GoStak used the product for workout related reasons, while others used it to carry stuff to and from their jobs or classes.
The majority of users of the GoStak simply love it. They love the compact size of the unit and the ease of use. They also claim that the product is not only air-tight, it is as tough and sturdy as it claims to be, suffering no freezer or refrigerator storage damage, and coming out of the dishwasher unscathed every time.
The complaint heard most often regarding this product relates to its size; it was just to small for the needs of these users. Either the components themselves were too small, or the item didn’t meet their size requirements overall. They loved the premise, and the loved the air-tight seal which the product so successfully maintained. Both groups liked the fact that it was compatible with other bottles.
The Bottom Line
The BlenderBottle GoStak is a smart, durable product which is smoothly designed. For those who need a product with a larger capacity, there are similar products on the market, but few offer the consistent benefits provided by the GoStak pack. If you are looking for a tough, dependable work or workout buddy to stand guard over your goods, the BlenderBottle GoStak is one of the best options available, and makes for a great addition to your day-hiking pack.
