One challenging part of backpacking, camping and outdoor survival is trying to make the most out of limited equipment while minimizing the impact your equipment has on the environment. This simple idea was what led us to design the Solo Stove (patent pending).
The birth of Solo Stove began as we were searching for an efficient, easy-to-use, durable, light weight backpacking stove at an affordable price. We came across a lot of really good backpacking and portable camping stoves, but none seemed to meet all of our criteria. There were some that were easy to use and light-weight but poor quality. Some were efficient but were not environmentally friendly. Others were durable and light-weight but much too expensive.
