Find Out Why the Primus Primetech is Outside Magazine's Favorite Backpacking Stove
Our three-season backpacking stove has won the wild hearts of campers and backpackers alike.
While hiking, backpacking, and camping are all a part of the greater outdoor experience, it’s camp cooking that brings us together or makes us feel at home if you’re braving the trails alone. Here at Primus, we have plenty backpacking stoves that suit whatever need one explorer might have.
The Primus Primetech is a great backpacking stove, and yes, we’re bias. This compact set is consistent when it comes to cooking and has a low fuel consumption. It’s also easy to use and easy to transport, which makes it perfect for throwing in your pack and continuing on your backpacking trip.
In three simple steps, this backpacking stove is ready for cooking: remove the wind guard from the pot, connect the gas, and light up. When you are packing up camp you should pack all the parts together in the pot and it will be a simple, compact, and rattle-free unit.
This backpacking stove with its ease of use and quiet nature allows you to enjoy the great outdoors more fully and without any worry—when it comes to cooking, at least.
Catch What People Are Saying
Obviously, we are fans of this backpacking stove, but don’t just trust us, see what gear junkies have to say about the Primus Primetech:
“I hesitate to write “one and done,” “far and away the best stove I tested,” “runaway winner,” and so on, but that’s kinda how I feel about the Primetech… In short, this stove does everything exceptionally well, includes everything you need, and comes in a great little package.” Mike Thurber in Outside Magazine
“... it’s the combination of good design, manufacture and efficiency that marks it out as a great choice for the backpacker or even the base camper who wants to keep weight down.” Bob Smith from Grough
“The whole system nests together well as a compact do-it-all solution… Keep it all together and you've got as good a balance of packability and reliable performance as you could find in a canister stove.” Dave Shively in Canoe & Kayak
The Manual, an online guide for men, also added the Primetech to its list of best thru-hiking gear along with all the equipment you need to embark on a long distance hike.
