1.3 Liter Titanium Pot

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an excellent lightweight pot that has been very durable over the last two years. Heats relatively evenly, and has several thoughtful features including sturdy handles and vent/drain holes. I have used this over wood, alcohol, and Esbit tabs and the pot performed well. A slightly loose lid fit and not quite foolproof non-stick surface are the only negatives. Note of Clarification:  I initially posted this as the "non-stick" pot as my memory failed me that the previous version of this pot… Full review

Ti-Arc Pack

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Bling backpack, in beta. The market Vargo is aiming for with the ti-Arc can be worked out by three statistics: the median fit for its waistbelt is over 40", the base model costs three hundred dollars, and its capacity is that of a generous daypack. Rich weight-weenies out for a stroll & a picnic? Right... ...well, not far off as a judgement, if a bit unkind. The basics are good—arguably very good: the (vented titanium) lumbar pad, its padding, and the associated waistbelt assembly are absolutely… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars $30 for a compact titanium (durable) alcohol stove (lightweight system) with folding leg anchors and pot stand! I have compared this to a lot of cooking systems and this is my favorite.

I love them, but this is my "go-to" stove while hiking. I love to have three legs that I can anchor into the soil and I love having the integrated pot stand. I have had… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect for my outdoor cooking. Very light and tiny when packed, but has cooking power. I bought this little stove for my outdoor cycling trips. I needed something really tiny and light because I carry only a small backpack (14 litres Osprey) for even a week-long trips where I keep all my stuff. I was very surprised after I have tested this stove. It needs only several wood pieces to cook a dinner and it has enough power to boil water for soups, tea etc. I even cooked potatoes (25 minutes in boiling… Full review

Converter Stove

rated 2 of 5 stars The Vargo Converter Stove is an optional multi-fuel accessory intended to be used with the Hexagon wood stove, although the Converter Stove can be used standalone as well. Multi-fuel capabilities include alcohol, esbit, or other fuel gels and solid fuel tablets. Sturdy titanium construction provides a lightweight stove that is far from fragile. The Converter Stove is an option for anyone looking for a commercially available multi-fuel companion stove. I would say that there are better options available,… Full review
