This new contraption does it all.

When it comes to backpacking, there are few traits valued in gear more than compactness and weight (or lack thereof). However, hikers do not need to forego fantastic meals while in the wilderness; backcountry cooking is an art, just like frontcountry cooking, and can be every bit as mouthwatering.

Thanks to the new BioLite CampStove Bundle, backcountry gourmet just got a whole lot easier. The contraption is compact and versatile, ideal for cooking on the trail or at the beach.

At its core is the original BioLite CampStove, which uses small twigs to build a smokeless fire. That open fire can be used on for other activities such as roasting marshmallows, or it can be the heat for a proper dinner preparation.

For those early mornings when coffee is the first and only thing on your mind, there’s a kettle to boil water. It attaches to the top of the CampStove and holds 1 ½ liters. The kettle can also be used to cook or sauté, if you’re feeling adventurous.

To accomodate loftier on-the-go cooking ambitions, a portable, foot-long grill included in the bundle. The grill’s plastic travel cover also doubles as a cutting board or tray.

Like all good must-have backpacking gear, the CampStove bundle breaks down into light and compact parts. When you want to have a fire or cook without all of the mess of a full-blown campfire or a propane stove, the CampStove is a great solution.


Plus, a USB outlet next to the fire turns the heat into energy that can charge your phone. How cool is that?
