GRILL TOP STOVE STAND
Designed to Fit over the Military Canteen
This stove is Built Tough like American Made Products Should be, and is designed by my good friend Rob Simpson at the CanteenShop. He designed it out of necessity. with the Military issue stoves becoming scarce. He decided to try and improve upon the original, and this one is made of Heavy Gauge Stainless Steel right in Cleveland Ohio. It is compatible with all standard canteen gear, just like the originals, and works great with Alcohol stoves, Trangia Stoves, or Wood fuel. It features a Grill Top design, that keeps your cup above the flames to maximize heat. It can be used as a Stove, Grill, Berry Picker, Strainer, Small Shovel, Fire Starting implement, and what ever else you can think of. If you have a military canteen cup, you need this Grill Top stove!
TRANGIA SPIRIT ALCOHOL BURNER
Not only is the Trangia Spirit Alcohol Burner small and light, but it is one of the most reliable alcohol burners I have used, with a track record of half a century! It uses Denatured Alcohol and is unique in that you can store alcohol inside the stove when not using it as it has a twist on cap with an o-ring seal. This also keeps you from having to empty the burner between uses. It also has a simmer ring that allows you to adjust the flame down to a simmer. Another advantage is the burner is quiet, simple (no pumping or priming) and it is odorless when burning. I find that it works well inside some type of a windscreen and normally use it inside the Vargo Titanium Hexagon Stove or under the Grill Top Stove Stand (see photos below). Of course, you can use other various means to hold a pot over the burner. Weighs 4 oz. (empty) and measures 2-5/16" in diameter x 1-7/8" high.
Note: This is the Trangia Spirit Alcohol Burner which comes with the Trangia Stove Sets (It is the burner only and does not include any pots, windscreens or stands). Uses Denatured Alcohol. If you like to see a tutorial on how to make a stabilizer and pot holder for the Trangia Burner, CLICK HERE!
TWIN NECK ALCOHOL FUEL BOTTLE
This is a very unique storage bottle for carrying 8 oz. of extra Denatured Alcohol for any of your alcohol stoves. It has a twin neck which allows you to fill or pour from one side, or measure 1/2 oz. and 1/4 oz. increments from the other side. The side of the bottle has graduations from 1 oz. to 8 oz. in 1/2 oz. increments. The pour side has a pull-up spout and the measurement side has a solid cap (the caps are interchangeable and can be used on either side). It is made from HDPE #2 translucent white plastic. Weighs 1.4 oz. and measures 6-3/16" tall x 3-5/8" wide x 1-5/8" thick.
NALGENE LEAKPROOF BOTTLES
These are ideal bottles for carrying extra alcohol for your stove, or any other liquids that you don't want to leak all over your gear. They are available in 2 oz., 4 oz., and 8 oz. and have screw top lids. We have found that most of the squirt-top bottles eventually leak, so we recommend the screw tops. They measure as follows: 2 oz.: 1.5" diameter x 3-3/8" tall, 4 oz.: 2" diameter x 4" tall, 8 oz.: 2-3/8" diameter x 5-1/4" tall.
This Stove and cookset is new to the Esbit® line. Constructed from hard anodized aluminum, it is extremely light. It includes a windshield type stove and a pot with lid. The stove fits in the pot, which has folding handles and a small pour spout. The pot holds just slightly over 18 oz., but has graduations in both ounces and milliliters, and you read them from the inside, which works well when pouring a liquid inside. The handles have silicone grips for protection from heat. It all fits in an included mesh stuff sack.
The stove uses standard 14 Gram Esbit® Fuel Tabs (not included) which burn approx. 10-15 minutes. The stove is great for heating water or food on the trail, such as a quick cup of coffee, tea, or soup. It will not bring water to a rolling boil one fuel tab, but makes it very hot. In extreme conditions, a second tab may be required. This would also make a nice emergency stove, but is for outdoor use only. Weight: 7.5 Oz. Measures 4.1" x 3.75". Fuel Tabs sold separately below.

The alcohol burner is same design as the Trangia burner above, and holds alcohol in it during transport (Heat Tabs and alcohol not included).

Brand new from Esbit®, this is a take-down Stainless Steel Pot Stand with a tray for a Esbit® solid fuel Heat Tab. Ultra Light and very flat when taken apart and placed in the included pouch with belt loop. When put together, it provides a three sided pot stand which will hold any pot that fits over a standard Nalgene® Bottle. It is designed so that if you remove the included Esbit® Heat Tab tray, you will be able to snap a Trangia Spirit Alcohol Burner, or the alcohol burner from the Esbit® Spirit Stove Set, in the same slots which hold the Heat Tab tray. When disassembled and placed in the included pouch, the pouch will also hold six Esbit® Heat Tabs.

JETBOIL® FLASH COOKING SYSTEM
The Jetboil® Flash Cooking System has everything you need to quickly boil 1 liter of water in under 2 minutes. It features a high efficiency burner housed in a wind protective shroud. This "FluxRing™" technology captures and transfers heat directly to the cooking pot, which is attached directly to the burner. The cooking cup is a 1 liter, hard anodized cup that has the heat exchanger attached to the bottom. This heat exchanger almost doubles fuel efficiency. An insulating cozy on the cup (which stays on the cup while cooking) has a color changing indicator that signals when contents are hot, and allows you to grip the cup while insulating its contents and speeding up boil times. A nylon webbing handle allows a comfortable hold while cooking, eating, or drinking. The Jetboil uses less than half the fuel required by a conventional stove, saving you weight, space, and money. The stove detaches from, and stores inside, the cup, along with a gas canister. Size: 4.1" x 7.1" Weight: 14 oz. (without stabilizer).
