Solid Fuel Camping Stoves
Solid fuel camping stoves are handy to have in emergencies at home or as a backup stove when camping. The overall benefit of having one is that you are not limited by liquid and gas fuel availability. All you need to do is light a few bits of twigs and bark - basically it is a self contained camp fire on a much smaller scale. The environmentally friendly credentials speak for themselves, but they are not a gimmick and are used worldwide by a wide variety of people. Obviously there will be problems using these stoves at high altitudes and in the depths of a snowy winter when locating fuel may be a problem, but for general extended outdoor trips these solid fuel camping stoves are hard to beat. The size and weight of these stoves is larger than the multifuel camping stoves or the gas camping stoves, but this is only a problem if you are travelling. For a static site these are just brilliant.
