Spread the love

The world of backpacking is one that is full of adventures. You can go to any location that your heart desires and get lost in the wilderness that surrounds you there. But, you still have to do a little bit of planning in order to make sure that your backpacking adventures are not going to be cut short by any simple mistakes.

Whether you are planning on trekking across several different countries, or going to spend a week in the mountains, preparation is key.

There are a lot of things that you need to think about, but one of the most important things that you need to consider is the type of food that you are going to eat. During the day, you might feel fine eating simple snack bars. But, at night, once it starts to get cold, you are going to have to eat something that warms you up from the inside out.

Unfortunately, there are a few things that you need to remember before you even begin to think about the different kinds of warm food that you could enjoy. Most places have strict fire laws so cooking around a campfire is something that cannot be done in a lot of different places. Due to this, you need to start thinking about whether or not you can take your own backpacking stove and what sort of backpacking stove you would like to take.

This can be a really confusing thought at first, so we thought that we would help you along the way by showing you one of our favorite backpacking stoves—the Emberlit Fireant Backpacking Stove. This is a stove that really knows how to live up to the name that it has been given.

You might be thinking that this stove looks far too simple to be an effective backpacking stove, but if you give it a little bit of time, then it will definitely begin to grow on you. Continue reading to find out about the different factors that make this stove special.

Emberlit Fireant Backpacking Stove Features

Here are some of the amazing features that are present on the Emberlit Fireant Backpacking Stove

Weight

As we have previously stated, the Emberlit Fireant Backpacking Stove is a stove that really does know how to live up to the name that it has been given. You would never expect an ant to be big and neither is this stove. It weighs in at just over three ounces, making it one of the lightest backpacking stoves that can easily be purchased. The fact that this stove weighs next to nothing is a really important factor when it comes to backpacking.

Materials

This stove is made out of 100% titanium. The fact that it is made out of titanium is a really good thing because it means that, while the stove is ridiculously lightweight, it is also very durable and easy to clean.

It is also worth noting that while this stove weighs in at just over three ounces, once the fuel plate and the case have been added to it, it weighs even less before then. The materials that have been used during the construction of this equipment have been chosen specifically to make sure that they can keep the stove as lightweight as possible.

Fuel

This stove is quite literally a fire in a box, albeit a very efficient fire in a box. All it takes is two long twigs to get a fire going using it, twigs that you could find pretty much anywhere on the trail. Stoves that use wood as a fuel source are one of the best things for backpackers to consider because it is the type of fuel source that does not cost money and you are not going to run out of it.

Design

The design of this backpacking stove is nothing that will immediately capture your attention. As we have said, it quite literally looks like a fire in a metal box. But, the special thing about the design is that you can take this stove apart and literally ‘flat pack’ it so that it will fit perfectly into a small pocket.

We can never expect a product to be perfect, even if it is a tiny, portable backpacking stove. Here are some of the positive and negative factors that are associated with this stove:

Pros

As we have mentioned, the design of this stove is not something that will immediately capture your attention until you consider how easy it will be to put it away. You simply take each piece off of the main stove and lay them down on top of each other until you are left with a pile of pieces of metal. This does take a little bit of time to do, but it should not take too long.

We all have to consider affordability when we are thinking about buying a new piece of equipment because we cannot afford to spend money on equipment that we are not really going to use.

The best thing about backpacking stoves like this one is that they offer you a ‘one-off payment’ structure because you only ever have to pay for them at the time of purchase. With other stoves, you would also have to keep paying for fuel and carrying that around with you.

This stove is called a ‘Fireant’ for a really good reason. Weighing in at around three ounces it is lighter than most of the other stoves that can currently be found on the market. It is also relatively inexpensive, whereas most lightweight backpacking items have a high price due to their lightweight stature.

Cons

While the lightweight nature of this backpacking stove is perfect, it also means that this stove is really small. This means that the fire inside of the box can only grow to a certain size so the flames will go out after a little while.

To stop them from going out you can keep feeding twigs into the bottom of the stove, which means that you will not be able to leave the stove alone for long time periods.

You also have to be careful because the base of this stove can get very hot. It is known to char the surface that you put it on so you should make sure that you use either a patch of dirt or a stone as your base, as opposed to putting it on the grass.

Summary             

The Emberlit Fireant Backpacking Stove is a great option for backpackers and campers because of how versatile it is. This is evident when it comes to the way in which the stove can be used with other products.

While it has been specifically designed to use wood as a fuel source, you do have the option to integrate it with either a Trangia or an Esbit spirit burner to use different sources of fuel.

Remember that while this product is quite literally a fire in a box, it is one of the best stoves for backpacking because of how small it is. Why would you carry around a massive, heavy stove when you can carry around a miniature one?

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!|
