Bushbox Ultralight Outdoor Pocket Stove Test and Review
One of the key factors when hiking and on the move is the weight of your survival gear – even an EDC bag can get a bit heavy when you try to cover all your survival needs.
Well, in this review I am covering one of the very lightest, fully functioning survival stoves you can get today.
The Bushbox Ultralight Outdoor Pocket Stove from Bushcraft Essentials in Germany have produced a cooking stove that is a mere 2 1/4 oz in weight. [61 grams] – thats almost half the weight of an iPhone..!!!
The Bushbox Ultralight folds down to an amazing 1.5 mm thick, making this a super light, super compact quality stove.
- Multi fuel stove
- 100% stainless spring steel 5 parts
- Carry weight 61 grams
- Carry thickness 1.5 mm
- Optional ashtray
- Optional cotton carry bag
In this review I will be covering how to assemble the UltraLight Stove in its various configurations depending on the fuel type and then firing it up and cooking up a survival meal.
The only tricky bit about the Bushbox Ultralight Outdoor Pocket Stove is assembling the stove – it will take you a few attempts to get the hang of how to hold the stove whilst squeezing and manipulating the parts together.
Maybe a half dozen attempts and you’re there..!
Other than that, you’re good to go – a perfect little stove, more than capable of performing all cooking tasks from a cup of water for your coffee stop to a main meal.
Everything fits and locks together perfectly and this makes it a sturdy little unit. Disassembly is really easy once one side is ‘unclipped’ the whole unit will come apart – very nice and very easy….
Price wise I think the Ultralight offers good value for your money, currently under £30 +shipping from Amazon, you’re paying for quality and good design here, as well as a nice bit of lightweight kit.
Overall, I liked using this stove very much, it seems to be a very “user friendly” and I tend to choose carrying it with me when out for a days hiking and travelling light.
