GoSystem Trail Classic

£10.00

This is a basic camping stove that just gets on with the job and doesn’t bother with the frills… and I love it. Its clean, simple design is easy to fathom, you get a decent burner that kicks out plenty of heat, it’s small and light and comes with a carry box containing a ‘stove first aid kit’ (O rings ...

MSR Pocket Rocket

£30.00

The Pocket Rocket is ridiculously small and impossibly light, making it an extremely attractive camping stove for anyone who likes to travel with a minimal pack. It is very similar in this respect to some other stoves, but it beats these mainly because of the excellent price. Performance wise it is excellent, bringing a pan to the boil in just ...

Trangia Trangia

£40.00

The Trangia is one of the most eternally popular camping stoves on the market, although it’s not to everyone’s taste.

Primus Express Spider (2012)

£45.00

The main problem with connecting a gas burner directly onto the top of a gas canister is that the result is a tall, unstable cooking system, due to the height created when a pan is placed on top. This means you have to be very careful not to allow the structure to wobble too much, as you could end up ...

£50.00

But not as stable as lower-profile stoves; best boil time is only available with fresh gas canister; higher price due to piezo ignition.

Jetboil Jetboil

£50.00

The Jetboil has to be one of the most efficient camping stoves in the world, and in our test it burned for an astonishing 5 hours 40 seconds, far surpassing more traditional stoves on the ‘boils per canister’ ratio. The whole thing packs down inside the mug-shaped pan too; so, although it looks quite big, the size is deceptive. And ...

Primus Eta Express

£60.00

The Eta Express is the one-person version of the Eta Power stove, and both are superbly efficient thanks to their use of a heat exchanger on the base of the pan. In fact, the burner on the Eta Express is identical to the Primus Express with ignition unit, so it’s the pans that are key and they manage to deliver ...

The Primus Eta Express is the one-person version of the two-person Eta Power stove, and both are superbly efficient due to the use of heat exchangers on the base of the pans. The burner on the Eta Express is identical to the Primus Express with Ignition burner. So it is the pans and the windshield that are the key features ...
