We at Solostove.com have always loved backpacking, camping, and fishing outdoors. Some of life's most cherished memories come from the outdoor adventures shared amongst friends and family. There's something about being outdoors in the presence of nature that requires you to live a simple life and adapt to your environment. That's a beautiful thing.
One challenging part of backpacking, camping and outdoor survival is trying to make the most out of limited equipment while minimizing the impact your equipment has on the environment. This simple idea was what led us to design the Solo Stove™ (patent pending). The birth of Solo Stove began as we were searching for an efficient, easy-to-use, durable, light weight backpacking stove at an affordable price. We came across a lot of really good backpacking and portable camping stoves, but none seemed to meet all of our criteria. There were some that were easy to use and light-weight but poor quality. Some were efficient but were not environmentally friendly. Others were durable and light-weight but much too expensive.
So we decided to make my own stove that would be super efficient, easy to use, built tough and light-weight.
But we didn't only want to make an exceptional backpacking stove. We wanted to make a stove that is affordable enough for everyone to enjoy - from the avid backpacker to the boy scout out camping for the first time. We're proud that we achieved this. Solo stove is one of the most affordable compact wood burning stoves on the market today.
We hope you enjoy the companionship of the Solo Stove as much as we do. We're confident that the Solo Stove will soon become one of your most important pieces of backpacking gear. Happy trails!
