The Esbit Pocket Stove is the gold standard for the ultralight backpacker. The solid fuel blocks combust at 1400 degrees and provide over 12 minutes of burn time per block. The fuel lights easily, does not liquify while burning, produces no ash, and can be extinguished for later use. Performs well at any altitude. The stove housing folds out to two cooking positions (low and high heat), and collapses to stash unused fuel inside. These are a great option for true ultralight cooking kits, or as fire-starter as part of you emergency gear. Includes the pocket stove and 6 fuel blocks. Cook pot and matches not included.
