This is a super exciting product that I can’t believe I hadn’t come across sooner. For $39.99, this little piece of equipment is well worth the money. With the Gen2 Folding Firebox Nano Ultralight you can say good riddance to hauling around canisters, pot stands, or windscreens. Now you can forget all of that extra weight while still enjoying warm meals and beverages after a long day of hiking or during camping trips. The Firebox Nano weighs in at a jaw-dropping 6 oz, which is pretty awesome for any ultralight backpackers out there looking to retire there old trusty stove for a more practical one.
What I find the most appealing about this stove is that it’s performance is absolutely amazing just by using the simplicity of a few sticks, some kindling, and a match. This little guy can boil two cups of water in roughly 3 minutes. That’s pretty impressive! However, if you do prefer cooking with alcohol or gas burners, no problem! The Firebox Nano adapts perfectly with both the Trangia Spirit and Gas burners. Check out all of the add-ons that are readily available for you to choose from.
Sure, I love to do my fair share of backcountry hiking, but I also plan to backpack through the outback in Australia and this will do perfectly for that as well. So for any travelers reading this, it’s really the best stove I’ve found as far as lightweight packing goes.
Like I’ve already mentioned, there are several options that you can add-on when you purchase this stove; a leather carrying case, adjustable fire grate, and a stainless steel flame guard – just to name a few. And although these tools are wonderful in and of themselves, they are far from necessary. All you need for a fantastic experience is the Gen2 Folding Firebox Nano Ultralight and some sticks around your site.
Seeing is believing, so I try to incorporate valid videos into my reviews. Want to see for yourself? I’ll leave it to Steve to explain a few more details. Check out how he pulls it right out of his shirt pocket!
