Mini Trangia
  

This Mini Trangia has a 0.8 litre pot, non-stick frying pan, spirit burner, windshield and handle.
The Trangia fuel bottles come in 0.3, 0.5 and 1 litre versions, with safety valve. The multi disc is a chopping board, collander and prevents the frying pan from being scratched.

Mike says...
" I just can't fault Trangia. I have used them all over the world and they have never let me down. For lightweight trips I take the Mini Trangia, stored inside a billy can. For longer trips or in a fixed camp I take the 25-5 even if I am on my own. The reason for this is the 25-5 pots are big enough to make two meals at once, so the next day I can re-heat a stew for example and have a quick lunch. Always carry meths in the Trangia bottle - I have seen and heard of some nasty accidents, one fatal, of people carrying meths in flimsy plastic bottles. Always ensure the burner is out and thoroughly cooled down before re-filling, and carry a spare O ring. The non-stick versions are worth their weight in gold. "


MINI TRANGIA




Trangia Triangle
  
Lightweight spirit burner holder and pot stand.

Mike says...
" A new piece of kit from Trangia. I am a lover of all things Trangia and this flat, packable stainless steel burner holder and pot stand is great. I use it for those lightweight days out in the mountains or for a quick bivvy over-nighter. Little tricky to assemble at first but with some practice it is ready to go in seconds. Great no-nonsense piece of kit. "


TRANGIA TRIANGLE







Trangia Gel Burner
  
This burner is to be used when cooking with Ethanol Gels. It will fit all 27 and 25 stoves, the Mini Trangia and Trangia Triangle.

Mike says...
The Trangia Gel Burner has been on the radar for some time and it was only through customer queries I purchased one with 1 litre of gel to have a play. The Gel Burner holds approximately 50ml of gel and I can make 6 brews from this.The gel starts my fires, can be lit with a spark or flame and is extinguished easily either by the lid of the burner or a quick blow. It cools quickly so I can pack it away while drinking my brew.

The Gel Burner is now firmly ensconced in my trekking rig along with 250ml og gel - I'm a complete gel convert! "

Trangia Multidisc

Original Trangia Multi-disc can be used for lots of different purposes.


Mike saysÖ.

 

" A real must as an add on to any Trangia stove system. The multidisc can be used as a stand for the cooking system in deep snow, a chopping board, fire wafter, fan to keep you cool, collander, frisbee and anything else you can think of. I have cut one down to fit in my Mini Trangia set which works great."

Vargo Decagon Titanium Alcohol Stove
  
With no movable parts and a one-piece titanium construction, youíll see why the Decagon is a step above the rest.

Mike says...
In the Spring and Summer I like to change my cooking method from gas or wood-gas to gel or bio-ethanol. Gel and bio-ethanol takes a little longer to boil water but the weather is generally warmer so no rush. The Vargo Decagon is a lightweight no frills stove that when primed is really fast and efficient. I have fitted an aluminium base plate on the bottom of the stove so I can place fuel around the base to hasten the priming process. It also fits really well inside my cooking pot. "


VARGO DECAGON TITANIUM ALCOHOL STOVE


Solo Stove Lite

Designed with a double wall, the Solo Stove Lite is a natural convection inverted downgas gasifer stove.

Mike says...
" Being a big fan of wood-gas technology over the years the Solo Stove does not disappoint. A really well made, well engineered and super-efficient stove that will never run out of fuel. "


SOLO STOVE LITE







Kelly Kettle

Strong with nothing to fail or break, our kettles work extremely well in both good and harsh weather conditions. They are a vital piece of camping equipment for any outdoor person. Using whatever natural fuel is lying around (twigs, dry grass, heather, birch bark, pine cones, dry animal dung, etc) our kettles will bring water to the boil within a matter of minutes. Never carry fuel again.

Mike says...
" Good to see the original Kelly Kettle back in store. I still use these on a regular basis when I am either fixed or vehicle camping, the ultimate water boiler - whatever the weather. "


KELLY KETTLE







Optimus Vega Stove
  
It offers two ways of cooking in one stove.  When cooking in cold temperatures or when extra fast boil times are needed, just open the gas canister support legs and turn your gas canister upside down and continue cooking in the 4 Season Mode.  For excellent efficiency and precision cooking on a low flame use the Efficiency Mode. The Optimus Vega has the lowest profile in its category. This means superior stability, especially for larger pots.  The included windscreen with rounded corners easily adjusts to two sizes.

Mike says...
" 12,580 BTU in 4 season mode WOW. By the time I have dropped a tea bag in my cup the water is boiling, unreal. Great low profile while on rough ground with exceptional power, brilliant stove for getting things hot quickly, and packs down well too. "


OPTIMUS VEGA STOVE



Optimus Crux Stove
  
Thanks to an innovative folding burner head and the convienient strap-on protective stuffbag, the Optimus Crux packs down to nothing and stores in the empty base of your LP gas canister.

A technical wonder designed for weight chasers who refuse to compromise cooking performance.

Mike says...
" At the time I was looking for a no-nonsense cooking pot, which I found in the GSI Hallulite Minimilist, I also had my eye out for a powerful lightweight gas stove that would fit inside the pot. We had very recently acquired back instore the Optimus range of stoves.

As always I studied the form, weight, BTU output, burn time, pack ability etc and set my sights on the Optimus Crux. I really like this stove - at freezing temperatures I can boil 300ml of water in just over a minute, it has a great adjusting arm for when you want to reduce heat for simmering, and best of all the burner head folds flat and fits in the dish under a gas canister. The small neoprene bag that comes with the stove is a great little gizmo. You place the folded stove in the split sleeve at the base of the bag, then put your gas canister in and tie off with a funky bungee cord system. This then fits nicely into the GSI Hallulite Minimilist with no rattling.

To conclude, a brilliantly designed and engineered stove for those who want to travel light. "


OPTIMUS CRUX STOVE



Soto Windmaster +4Flex Combo Stove

This well-made stove is able to stand up to harsh conditions. The Soto OD-1RXC is designed so the pot sits close to the flame, making it more efficient in windy weather. Results in increased efficiency and boil time. Boil 2 cups of water in under 2-1/2 minutes in strong winds and gusty weather.

Mike saysÖ.

" I had to give one of these ago so went ahead and purchased one. I really like this stove especially how the concaved burner head acts as a windshield and the interchangeable pot supports. I have used this stove with a myriad of pots with very similar results and the above boiling time is open to speculation dependant on pot type, water temperature and wind speed however.

But one thing is clear, it is really well thought out, has great workmanship on all components and has a very adjustable valve if you need to simmer food. Takes standard screw on gas canisters."
SOTO WINDMASTER



Jetboil MiniMo Cooking System

MiniMo delivers UNMATCHED simmer control, metal handles, and a low spoon angle for easy eating!

Mike says...
For some time I have been looking for the ultimate cooking pot and I think I have found it. After the usual mods of removing the insulated jacket and reducing the silicone on the handles itís perfect. 

Firstly, the flux ring really works well on all stoves not just gas, it is large enough to place two boil in the bag meals and heat enough water for cooking and hygiene. I'm currently using the Vargo Decagon as my alcohol stove and this fits perfectly in the base. For a woodgas option the Solo Stove fits neatly in the pot. The gas burner is super quick and efficient too. It works great around an open fire and I can use it as a mug.

It has taken a little time to find but the Mini Mo is now firmly entrenched in my rig. "


JETBOIL MINIMO COOKING SYSTEM




Jetboil Flash Cooking System

This system lights with the click of a button and in just over 2 minutes provides two cups of boiling water for cocoa, coffee, instant soup or a gourmet freeze-dried meal.

" A great quick system to boil water rapidly in those cold days out on the hill. The Jetboil has proven itself on many trips, and is great also for warming up boil in the bag foods. Often copied, never equalled. "

Mike says...
" Wonderful little BBQ or fire pit, packs down well and is well made. I even use it as a stove for a cast iron pot. All folds neatly into its own bag to keep the inside of the car clean. The stand which is an optional extra is a great bonus too. "


ESBIT BBQ




Petromax Griddle and Firebowl

A campfire can be lit on the fire bowl in order not to damage the ground, or the griddle can be put over an open fire on its three detachable screw in legs  in order to prepare a delicious meal.

Mike says...
" Pan fried duck breast with Asian noodles, chapattis, nan bread, sizzling marinated pork loin... my mouth waters. The griddle is a brilliant cooking tool that stows nearly flat when packed away, has loads of uses in camp, I even use it to toast bread. If you are going to use it over a fire it is worth getting the carry bag to keep everything else clean. "

OPTIMUS CLIP ON WINDSHIELD




Optimus Sparky
  
Piezo igniter for gas stoves.

Mike says...
" At first the Optimus Sparky looked like a bit of a gimmick as I normally used a Firesteel to light my gas stove. I pushed the boat out and purchased one and they are brilliant, not effected by cold temperatures, safer and more controllable to use than a Firesteel especially in a tent vestibule. This little piece of kit will be in my rig for years to come. "

MSR Quick Skillet

This compact, 7-inch skillet nests efficiently with Quick 2, Base 2 and Alpinist cookware, adding versatility to your average minimalist kitchen without adding too much weight to your pack.
  
Mike says...
" I purchased a Quick Skillet for a trip to Norway this year where I was fishing upland tarns. The idea was to catch and pan fry the fillets with a little salt and pepper. The skillet was brilliant for this job as well as for bacon and eggs, warming soup and pasta dishes too. With the folding handle which can be removed for easy storage the skillet worked well over a gas and meths burner. "

Really like the bail arm which I hang from a tripod over the fire. It also makes itís way into the kitchen from time to time to make soup, which is nice. "

Zebra Billy Can
  
A good all round Billy can, made of high quality stainless steel.

Mike says...
" It's great to see the Zebra range back in the store. I have been a lover of these Billyís for years. Their intention is to be used as a lunch pale. You put your food you want to keep cool in the bottom of the Billy, then place on the internal tray and add ice. Put on the lid and raise the bale arm to lock the lid in place. I have never tried this, but they are great when full of boiling hot coffee, soup or stew - and can even be arranged to be used as a small oven for baking Bannock. They are great used as a gathering pale for nuts and berries, and can even be used as a digging tool. They work well on gas and multi fuel stoves, as well as being used over or around a campfire.

Everyone should have a Zebra Billy. "

" A really well made kettle that can be used in the home.
