Optimus Nova Stove


Product Details

The lightweight, compact, dependable Optimus Nova Stove takes on the harshest conditions from arctic travel to high-altitude mountaineering. It runs on white gas, Optimus arctic fuel, kerosene, diesel, and jet fuel, which is why it has become a popular choice for expedition travel where fuel may be limited. The Nova Stove's quick-priming gets a roaring flame going quickly, and the adjustable heat lets you simmer as well as boil. This burly white gas expedition stove weighs only 15 ounces and packs smaller than a fuel bottle. Get one for base camp and one to pack for your ultralight summit push.

Price : $ 149.95

Camping Stoves Checklist

What Type of Stove? For general campground use, get a campground/propane stove. They are far easier to cook with, and have more options, than a backpacking stove.
Fuel Type? A dual fuel stove is always handy, especially for a backpacking stove. However, for general camping use with a campground/propane stove, it's still hard to beat propane. You can buy propane canisters nearly anywhere.
For Backpacking... My preference are liquid fuel stoves. They are more versatile and fuel costs are lower. Still, there are some advantages to canister stoves...especially if you don't mind the higher fuel cost that goes with them.
Don't Invite the Bears to Dinner! When in Montana or Yellowstone Park, the number #1 way to invite a bear to dinner is to leave your stove (and pots/pans) lying around right after cooking. So...don't be lazy. Clean-up once you're done cooking and put your stove in your vehicle.
