Vertex Ultralight Backpacking Stove

For all of the outdoor fans Vertex have made a new super portable stove! The VLS ultra-light stove, weighing just 50g (1,8 ounces), and is ultra thin too, when packed itīs just 2,5mm thick. Made from tempered steel, making it strong and durable, it assembles in just a few seconds, with no valves and no moving parts. Itīs purpose is to be an alternative to the isopropane cannisters, that can be unreliable, and are heavier to carry around. It runs with Esbit fuel tablets, that are more dependable than the gas, and with Trangia Spirit alcohol burner also. Designed for those who worry about the weight of the backpack but still need to sterilize water, or to warm it for the dehydrated meals, the VLS stove brings 16 ounces to a boil in just 8 minutes.
