This compact and durable canister stove uses a simple but highly effective design for the Firestick Stove. When folded up the solid design allows you to quickly and easily stow this away pretty much anywhere.
The unique Firestick Stoves offer a streamlined, ultra-packable silhouette for adventurers who always want their stove within reach. Complete with a stand-alone, matchstick-style Piezo igniter and a wool storage pouch, this stove can slide into a coat pocket, a mesh water bottle pocket, or a bike pannier with ease.
Mount this small burner on top of any gas canister, and fire it up with the single-handed use Piezo igniter. This slim stove offers a 2500W flame that can boil a liter of water in four and a half minutes, or can be lowered to simmer a delicate sauce. The wool storage pouch offers convenient insulation while handling your hot pot.
After enjoying your hot meal, simply unscrew the Firestick Stove from the fuel, twist on the cap to hold the pot supports closed, and quickly stow in the wool storage pouch, along with the Piezo igniter.
Primus' Firestick Stove focuses on the strong, compact design making it highly durable and packable. The stainless steel construction isn't the lightest for a canister stove as it does weigh 102g however, it does result in a strong piece of kit that will work for years. The pot supports fold up to completely shield the burner head when it is not in use protecting it from any potential damage when you're on the move and they also provide some wind protection when it is in use. A simple cap tops it off and keeps everything in place during storage.
There is a decent control for the heat output while a separate matchstick-style Piezo igniter is included but you may want to stick with your usual firelighter. The joy of this stove is how easy it is to pack away and how strong it is so you never worry about it getting damaged when it's stored away in your pack.
