With Winter weather or even during a colder temperature hike it’s nice to have access to a portable camp stove kit to heat some water up for a cup of coffee, a cup of soup, or other hot beverages/foods of your choice.
For my go to light weight camp stove I’ve chosen the FireMaple Titanium Lightweight Gas Stove. I’ve done this for three main reasons:
Lightweight – Weighing in at just under 2.0oz, the stove will not add any major weight to your kit. Stash the stove with a titanium camping cup, small pot, and fuel canister, your small cooking kit will weight approximately 1.5-2.0+lbs.
Portability – When stowed in the included plastic case the stove only takes up about a 3.5” x 3.5” amount of space. Meaning you can stash the stove inside your favorite enamelor titanium cup for ease of carry. If using a titanium cup you can store with the stove inside a small camping pot, and with a small 4.0oz fuel canister, you’ll be using the amount of space inside your pack comparable to the size of a 32oz Nalgene Bottle.
Efficiency – Fold out the serrated support arms (approximately 4.25” when opened), you can have 8.0oz. to 1L of water boiling in under 4 minutes with the stove heating around 2820W or 9,600 btu’s.
Safety Note: Let the stove cool down after use before storing back into the storage case.
For a compact, lightweight, easy to use small camping stove, the Fire Maple Titanium Pocket Stove is a recommendation.
