Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Great for long road trips where white gas isn’t always available, this stove can burn almost anything. When you can’t find white gas you can substitute kerosene, diesel, aviation fuel or LPG (butane/propane mix or isobutane) canisters all without modifying your stove. Integrated magnetic cleaning needle ensures a steady flow of fuel, even on heavier, dirtier fuel types. The quick priming burner requires less preheating to save you fuel. In the winter, use the 4-season mode when using LPG to increase the heat output and reduce boiling time.
