I’ve often wished for an ultralight wood stove that I could use OUTSIDE my shelter. I already own several Kifaru wood stoves specially designed to burn INSIDE my shelters. However, having one I can assemble in a flash trailside was something missing in my pack. Enter the Emberlit-UL camp stove.

There are a number of lightweight woodburning stoves on the market. However, finding one that feeds from the side and folds completely flat was something I was looking for. Emberlit has a very innovative stove, and during a recent weekend of backcountry skiing and winter camping I was able to test my new stove.
The stove comes in five pieces, plus an optional support for smaller pots. It all fits in a small pouch, constructed of rubberized nylon.
The thing I really love about this stove is the ability to feed it from the side, making it possible to slide long sticks into it.
The stove is very strong. I’ve heard about folks putting a dutch oven full of water on top of one. I have the titanium model, but it’s still strong enough to support the same weight. My little Snow Peak Trek 700 pot full of snow didn’t weigh much!
