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.

good but not excellent

I've had the Solo for a few years now and used it in Britain.
The idea of not having to carry liquid fuel and being able to use fuel from where i camp attracted me to this stove.
the idea is however better than the practice. But I still take it with me a lot.
1. Fuel has to be dry, not always possible.
2. it has to be available.Ive used dried broken when camping in the Lakes. tried bits of peat in various locations. dry sticks are definitely best.
3.you can light a fire and not have to carry around a lump of stainless steel.
4.the fuel capacity is tiny, buying the bigger version is not a backpacker option.
5. Its not light, so on a week end trip I still carry a pocket rocket. I think a weeks trip is the minimum I'd bother taking it.
6. it fiddley to re fuel when alight.
7lighting it you still need some form of tinder or fire lighter.
8.you can't use it in fire restricted place in summer....Sweden, Portugal, France , Spain Greece, Australia, USA parks all have some form of limit on open and enclosed fires...this includes this stove.
Pros.
1.It really robust. it's been in a pack, sat on, and left in the rain. its still fine.
2.i use a home made alcohol burner in the stove when on long trips, it gives me more options in wet weather.
3.it is lighter than carrying fuel on long journeys, when its not critical that you need a meal.
4. The idea is great.
5. you can use it with other burners inside. Meths, solid fuel blocks.
