Typically speaking, camp stoves are bigger and bulkier than they should be. It’s 2016 — time to slim down. Jetboil’s new Genesis Base Camp Stove does just that, coming in at not only a lower weight than average, but also smaller.
It’s a two-burner stove that gets its flame from a traditional propane cylinder. There’s no heavy metal surrounding like you’d find on the traditional camp stove, and they’re packed in a compact clamshell design that weighs just 9 pounds, 15 ounces. Each burner pushes out 10,000 BTUs. The system is easy to set up, and you can get it out from packed away in under a minute. The stove is also significantly quieter than most. With this camp stove, you have an unprecedented level of temperature control, with a simmer setting that’ll rival your stove at home. It’ll be available soon for $350. [Purchase]
