Lighter and smaller.

The ridiculously tiny Optimus Crux Stove folds up to fit under a 220g butane canister and weighs only 3.3oz. When you need to go ultralight on your backcountry travels, this stove definitely needs to be with you. The Cruz Stove burns for 90 minutes going full blast with a 220g canister, and it boils a liter of water in only three minutes. When you decide to bring a tarp instead of a tent and pull the frame from your pack to save weight, you better have this Optimus stove on the gear list.

  • Steel construction
  • Three minute boil time
  • 90 minute burn time

light weight and compact stove

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I've used this stove numerous times in the Eastern Sierras and it does an excellent job of boiling water quickly. It's so light weight you hardly even know it's there, especially when it's securely stored under your fuel canister. Pair this with a light weight titanium pot or kettle ( like MSR's Titan Kettle ) and you'll have an amazingly light and compact cook set. I really like the width of the burner, which is significantly wider than similar stoves in this category. My only concern was fuel leaking from the joint, but I've never experienced an issue. It's a quality stove, and I'd definitely recommend it.


gets the job done

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This is a compact folding stove,,,you gain great heat, small footprint, and the expense of a little wobble in the stove. It's ok don't get me wrong, I just would recommend using a pot with a large bottom. a cup to boil water just might not be stable....this stove is not worth the grams you loose. Get a slightly larger stove and enjoy your meal.

Unanswered Question

I am traveling to Fiji and plan on using a camp stove with propane or butane , do you have a distribution / retain outdoor gear shop that I could purchase from once I am on the Island since I can not bring on the airplane any butane ? Thanks for your help or suggestions
