Ultra-compact, space-saving stove

Bulky cooking gear can take up a lot of space in your pack – and space is something that is always at a premium if you’re trying to go fast and light. For dedicated lightweight backpackers, the small but perfectly formed Crux is just about the best stove out there. Ridiculously compact, extremely lightweight and yet ultra-dependable, its ingenious features include a unique folding burner head, which means it snuggles comfortably into the cavity at the bottom of your gas canister. How’s that for space-saving design? And despite its diminutive size, it still packs a punch: the 3000w burner is powerful and consistent, distributing heat superbly and still delivering precision simmering, fast boiling, and no hotspots (which means less burnt-on mess at the bottom of your pot)
