Optimus Crux Stove
The ridiculously tiny Optimus Crux Stove folds up to fit under a 220g butane canister and weighs only 3. 3oz. When you need to go ultralight on your backcountry travels, this stove definitely needs to be with you. The Cruz Stove burns for 90 minutes going full blast with a 220g canister, and it boils a liter of water in only three minutes. When you decide to bring a tarp instead of a tent and pull the frame from your pack to save weight, you better have this Optimus stove on the gear list.

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
||Fuel Type? A dual fuel
stove is always handy, especially for a backpacking
for general camping use with a campground/propane
stove, it's still hard to beat propane. You can buy propane canisters
||For Backpacking... My preference
fuel stoves. They are more versatile and fuel costs are
lower. Still, there are some advantages to canister
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.
