    Adventure camping gear

    Reading the purifying water thread was helpful. Anybody ever use a solo stove? A friend swears by it but he is prone to colorful exaggerations.

    Let's post info to any kool gear here?

    Never used one. They do have a reputation for being dirty and bulky though. No doubt in my mind that they work wonderfully. I like the concept of this thread very much.

    I like the idea of the SoloStove, but I'd rather not leave to chance trying to find dry twigs etc to fire it. Same for the fancy BioLite Campstove with the ability to cook and make electricity from twigs. Cool idea, but a pain in the rain.

    I use my old and trusted MSR Whisperlite. Its been around the world with me and up to 18,000ft on climbing trips and never let me down. Simple to maintain, and quick to start. Not the best simmering machine, but then I prefer tea and simple boil meals in the field.

    Plus I can use the same gas I put in the tank of the TDub, so I know I have spare fuel for it.

    Hey Matt, my friend uses cotton balls with Vaseline for the Solo. I like the MSR stove! Can one even buy white gas at a fuel station anymore or do you only buy it in sporting goods stores or online?

    I use an MSR Pocket Rocket for overnight and weekend hangs. It, along with a short fuel canister, eating utensils, a bowl and salt and pepper fit inside a small titanium pot with lid. Now I like the idea of the Solo stoves and their many iterations and would like to add one to my arsenal and if I finally decide to it will be this one.

    I assure you when I do it wont be the first wood fire my old military canteen cup has seen With the above stove you can use solid fuel tabs as well as wood so that does add some flexibility.

    I can still buy it by the gallon at Walmart and sometimes Dicks sporting goods.

    Great choice. Does "canister stove" mean it uses propane fuel?

    No. It uses a blended fuel canister. Isobutane, butane and propane. Like these.
