It depends on what you want from them. Powdered eggs have more application as an ingredient in baked goods than on their own as a substitute for breakfast eggs. Their consistency when cooked as 'scrambled eggs' is pretty dense and their flavor is not the same as fresh eggs. They are edible and nutritious, but a definite step down from fresh.

If you are not packing in your food (as in driving there), raw eggs in their unbroken, uncracked shells can keep for weeks. If you can get them straight from the farm, they may have the best chance to keep. Not all countries refrigerate eggs.
*I* happen to like Mountain House freeze-dried scrambled eggs, including the ones with peppers, etc., resembling a Denver omelette. I have been known to carry a portion in a cleaned chip bag, adding some instant potatoes, and keeping a catsup packet on the side.

Not being very fond of eggs, I don't miss them. However, I've had lots of success with other Packit Gourmet foods, so IMHO they might be worth a try.
CamperMom is right about the raw eggs, although they are kind of heavy, especially since a rigid structure is needed to keep the shelf from cracking. When I was a kid and my family horse-packed, the eggs were kept in the oats we took for the horses.
