Kovea Supalite Titanium (2014)

£35.00

Kovea is a new brand to the UK, offering a range of specialist lightweight backpacking stoves. The Supalite Titanium weighs in at just 57g and when that weight is combined with a price tag of just £35 this is an exceptional stove for travelling light on a budget. For the weight it has relatively wide pan supports too as they ...

GoSystem Fly Ti (2014)

£15.00

If you’re really counting the grams, then saving weight on your stove may be worth considering. While there are lots of gas burners around the 70g mark, it’s rare to find one below 60g – but the GoSystem Fly Ti goes even lower at just 47g. The weight saving comes from the use of titanium and from smaller pan supports, ...

GoSystem Fly Ti (2013)

£45.00

If you want to save weight there are a number of gas burners weighing in at around 70g to choose from, but the GoSystem Ti Fly pips them all by tipping the scales at just 48g, while being a similar price to its counterparts at £45. The weight saving comes from the use of titanium and from having smaller pan ...

Gelert Mercury Backpack Stove (2013)

£13.00

There are lots of burners that attach directly to the top of a gas canister, and the differences between them are very small – but the price of the Gelert Mercury Backpack Stove sets it apart as it’s clearly a great option if you’re short on cash. Like all gas stoves that attach directly to the burner it’s very light, ...

Hi Gear Blaze Titanium Gas Stove (2012)

£35.00

The most basic stove simply screws directly to the gas canister and a pan is placed on top, and while there are many stoves that provide this simple function the Hi Gear Blaze Titanium Gas Stove is extremely lightweight and also extremely well priced. At just 46g for the burner you barely know you are carrying it, and is difficult ...

Trail Designs Caldera Cone Stove

£27.00

This is a remarkable product,  based around a tiny meths stove that weighs only 16g. In the past I’ve tried these and they’re rubbish, but the addition of the Caldera Cone transforms the performance by acting as a windshield, supporting the pan and funnelling the heat to the base of it. The Caldera Cone is designed to be used with ...

Optimus Crux Lite

£40.00

At 74g this stove is extremely lightweight, and it’s also extremely compact. There are a few stoves that weigh almost the same as this one, but the Crux Lite just about has the edge when everything else is taken into account. Firstly it’s easy to assemble and use the stove – you just have to fold out the pan supports. ...

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 ...
