The Solo Stove is the ultimate backpacking stove - a lightweight compact efficient eco-friendly backpacking stove that will last you a lifetime.
The Solo Stove is a natural convection inverted downgas gasifer stove that incorporates a secondary combustion for a more efficient and cleaner burn. The bottom vents allow air to enter and flow up the bottom of the grate to feed the primary combustion a top down smolder. In addition air entering from the bottom vents heats up within the inner wall and rises up and out the top firebox vents causing a secondary combustion at the top of the stove. The Solo Stove doesn`t just burn wood. It actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once but twice! This technique makes for a cleaner burn which means less smoke and also allows the stove to burn more efficiently which means it requires less fuel than regular wood stoves.
We`re especially excited about how little of an impact the Solo Stove has on the environment. It`s easy to use yet extremely functional. At only 9 oz this stove is portable and light weight and because it uses bio-fuel (twigs wood seeds etc.) you no longer need to buy and carry around disposable canisters of gas fuel. With the Solo Stove as long as you have wood you`ll be all set to cook.
The Solo Stove was built for serious backpackers survivalists emergency disaster kits and campers alike and when used properly your Solo Stove will last you a lifetime!
Early feedback on the effectiveness of the SoloStove has been excellent. The worry for this country must be the availability of dry tinder on the other hand if you`re heading for Europe you will find that fuel is redily available in the Alps Pyrenees or further afield. The weight of the stove is a consideration but when you consider the fuel you don`t carry it suddenly becomes a real ultralight proposition.
As with all wood fires your pans get into a bit of a state so make sure you have a protective pouch for your panset that will protect the rest of your gear from the carbon deposits. You can use meths with the SoloStove a burner is available but its a bit heavy and we`re urging them to make a lighter one. You can also burn solid fuel tabs in it as well.
The SoloStoves fits exactly into the Evernew 1L Pasta Pot ECA522 with its protective bag on.
