    Blazin' heat from an ultra-lightweight, pint-size stove.

    Minimalist backpackers, thru-hikers, and weight weenies rejoice.

Weighing in at a mere 2.5 ounces and producing a whopping 10,200 BTU of heat, this camp stove is extremely portable, yet it can boil one liter of water in as little as three minutes.

    Pocket sized!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This little guy packs a punch! Boils water in a flash and packs easily into my personal pot with a fuel canister. Haven't had any trouble with it blowing out yet.

    Freaking Sweet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Best little light weight stove tool ! hasn't failed me yet even still keeps burning threw a big gust storm if you put the burner higher up.

    Great little lightweight stove

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used both this stove and the MSR Pocket Rocket Stove. Both are pretty awesome, but here's what I found about the Optimus Crux while backpacking in Denali National Park.


    -Lightweight and compact (Even lighter and smaller than the MSR Pocket Rocket)

    -Easy to use

    -Produces great heat

    -Great for boiling water for 1-2 peeps

    -Easy to control heat with gloves


    -One of the prongs that folds out on my stove is really tight and hard to open (especially with cold fingers!). The others seem a little loose.

    -At lower heat the flame control will creep to the off position. Kind of annoying.

    Conclusion: Powerful lightweight stove.
