Depending on the size I need, I have had great success with either sealing freezer zip lock bags, or for smaller stuff I really like baby bottle liners. They hold about 250 ml (8fl oz) and they seal up very nice. Good for making small portions. I pre-measure my drink mix, snacks, gorp, dried fruit, etcetera into individual servings. It really helps when trying to plan out meals for a long trip.

The only problem I've had is the Seal-a-Meal melting the bags too much. I got around this by using aluminum foil between the heating elements and the bags: I seal the bag, then peel off the foil after the plastic has cooled. I get much better results that way.
