rated 5 of 5 stars This stove does exactly what it is made to do. I have built a good quantity of soda stoves, but they all burned up over time. I have tried a bunch of homemade stoves that worked great, but they all burned up or got damaged over time.   I got tired of making stoves. I have had my eye on this model for years, but stayed away due to  reviews of bad build quality and poor performance. Over time, I picked up a Vargo Decagon and had great luck with it after a little practice. My only complaint was it… Full review

Titanium BOT Bottle Pot

rated 1 of 5 stars I do not recommend this product. It sounds like a great idea: water bottle, cook pot, and less weight. In reality the lid gets stuck with any pressure change: elevation change or temperature change of contents. You cannot get the lid off without something to break the seal — a screwdriver works great. I do not want to have to get other things out of my pack when I want a drink. That is way too complicated. It is extremely tippy when using as a pot due to its height. I am going back to my ti pot… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Soldier approved. This stove is nearly indestructible. I have taken it on two military deployments and it has survived with no damage. I have also used it indoors on my stove top during power outages, even though it's not recommended, alcohol is a very clean burning fuel. Very happy with this stove. Full review

Ti-Arc Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The external frame pack is back! The Ti-Arc is a first generation backpack from the company that brings us all things titanium.

Vargo still has a few kinks to straighten out in the design. However, the Ti-Arc has decisively brought the external frame pack back out of obscurity. This is the pack I want with me on the… Full review

Titanium Water Bottle

rated 5 of 5 stars It really is perfect for backpacking if you don't like or use bladders. It is very hard to justify paying this much for a water bottle, however after saying that I haven't regretted forking out for mine yet. I have used many water bottles in the past, still own a Sigg, Nalgene, amongst others, yet this is the one that always goes with me. It's not just the weight savings either. I like the size of it, about same diameter as a Sigg but with a much larger opening so it's easier to drink from and clean. Full review
