Snow Peak Geo Shield Stove


Product Details

Nothing ruins a backpacking trip quite as fast as the wind snuffing out your stove at the end of a 12-mile day, delaying a well-deserved dinner. It's a good thing you have the Snow Peak Geo Shield Stove, which has an integrated windscreen that protects your flame while still allowing proper oxygen flow. The Geo Shield is built around a remote-canister design that allows for both inverted and topside up fuel position. Snow Peak built this puppy out of aluminum alloy and brass, keeping the weight down to a mere 3. 25oz. That's not to say it's weak in the power department, as its 10,000 BTU output allows you to boil a liter of room temperature water in less than 4. 5 minutes. Snow Peak also designed this thing to accommodate larger pots and pans, so you don't have to worry about things spilling when you're cooking for the whole campsite.

Price : $ 99.95

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.
