Show Description

The light, efficient Crux LPG is compact enough to fit inside the base of a canister or inside a mug. Its oversized burner head distributes heat evenly and consistently even in the cold or at alutitude. Good-sized pot supports make balancing large pots a little less perilous, so you can melt snow, brew up hot drinks and get rehydrated.

  • Burns for 90 minutes at maximum output with a 225g canister.
  • Burner pivots flat for compact storage.
  • Adjustable flame control.
  • Improved extended pot supports are more stable.
  • Comes with a neoprene carry case, small enough to tuck into the hollow of the canister.
  • Uses Optimus LPG canisters (available separately).
