Category: Gear

Lightweight, compact, and easy to use, the Soto Pocket Torch lets you turn any disposable lighter into a portable blow torch in a matter of seconds.

When you’re exploring the backcountry, sometimes you need more fire power than a little lighter can offer. Just slip any $.50 rectangular lighter into this bad boy, and out comes a mini blowtorch capable of producing blue flames at temperatures up to 2,300 degrees Fahrenheit. The device weight just 1.8 ounces, and is perfect for doing everything from lighting stoves and starting campfires to cutting rope and soldering small objects. This wind-resistant burner is a great tool for any backpacker.

Purchase: $20
