Story and Video by Reuben Bolieu
There are many reasons to carry a bio-stove; maybe you live in a state that prohibits fires due to dry climate, maybe you just want to be able to heat up a quick lunch during a day hike or maybe you just don’t want others to be able to see your fire. Whatever the case, a good bio-stove should be in your pack.
One of the many bio-stoves out there, the Überleben Stöker Flatpack Stove, has been in my arsenal for well over a year and counting. It definitely is one of those pieces of gear that makes me wonder how I did without it for so long. It is also one of those well-worn camp items that can tell countless stories, without the power of speech. Just one look at it says it all.
Here are some different uses for the Überleben Stöker Flatpack Stove. Try some of the things, seen in the video, for yourself, and don’t be afraid to flip the game!
It has been with me in humid rainy weather, snow and weathered a few falls of its own. From extreme temperatures to fallen trees crashing down on it, the Überleben Stöker Flatpack Stove is the real deal. K&G
