Gas Stoves and Cold Weather

Postby hikin_jim » Fri Apr 01, 2011 2:57 pm

I've written a couple of articles for Seattle Backpacker's Magazine on gas stoves and cold weather if anyone is interested:
Upright Canister Stoves (for moderate cold)
Remote Canister Stoves (for near zero weather)

Obviously, a stove can save your life in cold weather -- but this isn't exactly a S&R post either. Hmm. Well, mods can move or delete as necessary.

It's good info HJ, that could save someone's life.

If TC doesn't have any problem with it being off topic, I sure don't.

Talk about pressure!

Dang! hj – you're about to get me fired again!

Can you somehow tie in these totally useless stoves (below 23,000' in really cold weather) to the desert?

Help me buddy,

PS: I'm not getting paid enough for this job!

TC,

I don't know anything about the 23,000 feet stuff, but relax.
I just doubled your Moderator pay! :lol:

Best,

Jim

See, now that's what I'm talking about!

You can't go wrong with MSR equipment.

The best stove in the world - bar none!
