Best Backpacking Stoves

For outdoor camping enthusiasts, it is important to note that bringing a cooker backpack is entirely optional. Some cross-country travelers reduce the extra weight, cost, and complexity of cooking and hardly miss out. Going stove-free is easy to do: just bring more food that doesn’t need to be cooked. Backpackers need a lightweight, reliable cooker that can get the job done quickly after a long day. From one-piece models made for fast-boiling water to those that cook gourmet meals in the highest mountain conditions, there is a cooker for all needs.

Canister stoves are the most popular type among backpackers for their efficiency, ease of use, and packability. Fuel canisters (usually available in 4oz, 8oz, and 16oz capacities) are pre-loaded with a pressurized mixture of isobutane and propane.
