Backpacking has been tagged as a rising trend during the 1960’s and has been a consistent entry in the life journals of bonafide adventurers and nature lovers alike. You would see photographs and snippets of the subculture in memoirs and in movie scenes when the characters gather around an Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove and wait for their food to cook.
Backpacking is considered to be a subculture that has its origins in Europe where college students taking a break from school would travel around the continent with nothing but the contents of their backpack. They would often go city to city, either by walking or, if you have the funds, through trains and experience the food, the music and the culture of the current destination.
In the United States, backpacking started as a way for your teens in the 1960s to rebel against the norms back then, more like an offshoot of the hippie culture that was widespread back then. This allowed the youth to rebel against society by traveling from one state to another, sometimes on a car but it was popular back then to travel via a Volkswagen van. They would have it packed with guitars, bongos and camping gears that include stoves that were the precursor of the Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove.
Nowadays, backpackers are more fun oriented rather than rebelling against the norms. Some have even transitioned to glamping, which is a complete diversion from traditional camping wherein the camping facilities are fully equipped and decked out stylishly.
However, even with today’s backpacking subculture, the Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove has found a place among the various gears that the modern backpacker would have.
Take the LATITOP 3500W Portable Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove with Piezo Ignition for example. It is a powerful camping stove that can heat up water within three minutes at full ignition and comes with its own collapsible legs and non-slip support bracket. Aside from this, the LATITOP Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove comes with the following features:
This Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove is made of a combination of stainless steel and zinc alloy that makes it durable and corrosion-resistant while weighing almost nothing at the same time. The Piezo ignition system uses an electronic spark generator to light up the fuel coming from a steel flex hose that connects to a remote fuel source.
The flames are fully adjustable and it is spread through a rotary system for an efficient heat delivery that cooks food evenly and at a faster rate. The support system is stable and comprises of both the serrated stand and the non-slip cookware support. The stand collapses and folds in order to fit in the accompanying storage box.
The OUTON Portable Camping Gas Stove 3500W/3200W with Piezo Ignition Foldable Lightweight Backpacking Stove comes close to the LATITOP Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove especially with regards to appearance and the power that it generates. Both stoves have the Piezo ignition system and have fully adjustable flame source, as well as serrated supports and even the same size carrying case.
The LATITOP edges the OUTON out when it comes to the materials that were used, as zinc is a better material than copper when it comes to providing support. Copper is much more malleable and tends to be bend if not supported properly. The collapsible legs of the OUTON cannot be adjusted evenly which means you have to find a stable and flat surface in order to use it.
The LATITOP 3500W Portable Ultralight Propane Backpacking Stove with Piezo Ignition brings value and functionality to the table while ensuring that food is cooked fast and evenly. The stable support system and the durable materials that it is made of give assurance that there would be no tipping accident and that it can be used even while balancing the stove on top of a log.
