Backpacking Stoves

Optimus Vega Stove


Product Details

Cold weather can turn a canister stove into a sputtering heap, but not the Optimus Vega Stove. This backpacking stove packs a four-season function that allows you to invert your gas fuel cartridge so it delivers liquid fuel. Liquid fuel helps the Vega burn with more power and greater efficiency so you can keep cooking and actually reduce your cooking time. The Vega is lightweight and compact enough for your summer backpacking bag, and capable enough to earn a spot in your winter camping kit.

Price : $ 94.95

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.
