The Prize:

This impressive prize pack includes nearly everything you need to cook, eat, and drink in the backcountry:

  • The Optimus Elektra FE stove weighs just 16.5 ounces and has "fuel efficient" in its name. The modular system combines the Crux Lite gas stove with a heat exchange pot with lid, clip-on windshield to reduce gas consumption and boil time, and Piezo igniter ($94.95).
  • The Katadyn Gravity Camp 6L water filter provides access to safe drinking water in the backcountry. Compatible with hydration systems, it features a 0.2-micron Ultra Flow Filter Technology, on/off quick release valve/quick connector, and shower adapter ($89.95).
  • A weekend's worth of AlpineAire breakfasts, meals, snacks, and desserts will keep you energized on your next backcountry trip (approximately $80).

  • The Optimus (H)EAT Insulation Pouch will keep those freeze-dried meals warm 25 percent longer ($14.95), and the Optimus Folding Ti Long Spoon will help you scoop out the very last spoonful of dessert ($14.95).
  • Can you have too many lighters? No. The Optimus Burny is a refillable, wind resistant, adjustable butane/propane gas lighter to light up any camp stove or campfire ($22.95). The Sparky Piezo device can be used with any canister and liquid fuel stove for easy lighting ($12.95).
  • Stay warm and dry cooking and eating anywhere atop the Optimus (S)eat, a foldable, lightweight seating pad ($7.95). For a clean camp kitchen, the scratch-free Optimus BOB has a rough scrubber with soft polishing side ($4.95). 

One lucky Trailspace member and gear reviewer will win this whole culinary camp package, thanks to Katadyn! Share a gear review and it could be yours.
