My go to stoves for all my adventures
On multiple day hikes by myself I travel with two stoves:
MSR pocket rocket (snow or rainy weather) @MSR
Fissure Ti-Tri stove. -alcohol, esbit cubes, wood
all in one system! @traildesigns
Why Two Stoves?
To be honest, on a multiple day trip I vary rarely use the pocket rocket.
I generally keep it as a reserve for really, really bad weather where I would
cook inside the vestibule of my tent. But the Ti-Tri is my work horse.
Just the fact that I can either use alcohol, esbits or wood is really the best
of most worlds. The esbit cubes is what I use the most. They are packed
like Dentyne gum, so you just pop one out and light it up. I use them the
most to make tea or cook soap. Unless I’m in country where fires are banned
I then choose to make a small fire. Which I keep alcohol as my last resort.
I store the alcohol in a foldable platypus. Its a litre bag but its foldable so
I never brought a full bag.
This is my go to day pack stove. On a day hike I only bring a 4 oz. can of fuel but you
can purchase a 8 oz. can.
