Small campfire grate or Vargo Hex Stove

Posted at — Jun 4, 2018

I’m getting my pack weight down and thinking about my last trip I’m bouncing between a small traditional campfire grate and Vargo hex stove.



(the images are not to scale, however, they weight exactly the same amount.)

In my early camping life I purchase the SoloStove 900 and then later the SoloStove Campfire. As I put that together with the Vargo and the grate I’m reminded that campfires are restricted on most trails and so none of these solutions are great when hiking.

For the time being I’ll stick with my Toaks stove and Vargo stove. I’ll review them later.
