Tiny But Mighty: Take a Butane Backpacking Stove into the Backcountry
Whether you’re camping or backpacking, a compact butane backpacking stove is perfect for any kind of lightweight adventure.
When you're car camping, weight is a non-issue. Often, car camping stoves are bigger and more robust so that you can cook multiple dishes for your campsite dwellers. Why not? With car camping, you don’t have to worry about how much you pack–heck, you can even make a gourmet meal since weight isn’t a concern.
But when it comes to backpacking, weight is one of the most important factors. If you’re solo, you have to worry about carrying everything on your back–including the camp kitchen, tent, sleeping bag, and maybe a change of clothes if you’re lucky. If you backpack with a partner, while you can divide some of the weight, you still want to carry the least amount possible.
