The brs ultralight canister stove is only .8 of on ounce. Of course you still need to carry fuel.
Why get the combo wood/alcohol stove when you can get a to-tri caldera cone for basically same price?

Its not the same price once you purchase the woodburning accessory for the cone.
I had a friend that used this stove for a few weeks hiking (former infantry turned Forest Service ultralight hiker). He liked the idea of not caring much fuel. As it turns out, wood burning stoves are much less convenient than you realize. Compared to my alcohol stove, I was done eating by the time his water boiled. Then your pots will get really dirty with soot so you will carry a pot sleeve. It ended up being really annoying for him and he switched stoves.

The alcohol burning stove they are selling I have personally used and is a good alternative to the traditionally penny stove. I prefer the titanium stoves to the penny pop can stoves because of reliability. Over time the aluminum stoves will flake and wear out and you need to construct a new one. You don't need to worry about that for titanium stoves. This isn't a problem for most people but if you do extended trips it's worth considering.

If you use the alcohol stove make sure to put a few drops of water into the alcohol before you light it. This helps it burn clean and keep the internal holes of the stove clear.
This "or" listing confuses me. I would only be interested in a Titanium Hexagon Wood Stove (not the alc burner). Is that what is being listed?

Assuming I understand correctly, if you want "only" the Hexagon Wood Stove, it would cost $42.99 USD plus whatever your shipping would be. ($3.50 in my case for a total of $46.49)



An outdated explanation (prices have changed, but the idea is the same): https://www.massdrop.com/buy/vargo-converter-stove-with-hex-wood/talk/599520
I have the Vargo Titanium Hexagon Stove and it is quite ok: light and versatile. But for burning wood properly I had to drill some holes in the walls to have air intake - 2 holes on each panel - see work in progress picture:


It works much better now, and still works with a Trangia or Vargo spirit burner, because the walls keep protecting from wind.
Hiram on Youtube video was less than an impressive stove, Primer pan is needed, and titanium and alchohol stove is not a good combination. Just an FYI. Gonna skip this drop.

LOL, what's wrong with titanium and alc stove? Well, besides cost. My fav alc stove is titanium, but fancee feast alum is close. I prefer titanium due to strength and that it cools faster, but that's because I can afford it.

Can't say how this Vargo stove is. I'm sure it works fine, but in general they don't get the best reviews no matter the style.
why not choose the Vargo Triad 2017?
It is a more compact stove

Been read reviews at trailspace about Vargo Triad 2017, and I like it.
Can anyone that has the alcohol converter tell me whether it's possible to simmer with it the way you can with a Trangia? The two piece combo would be great for my use (bikepacking) if so. Thanks!

No, it's not able to simmer as is. After using it for a week I found it to be wasteful and inefficient compared to the Trangia. The wood stove works well and the multi-use system is a great idea but they need to redesign the burner to make the premium price worthwhile.

Is the container/pot included?
I don't understand. The price 34.99 is for what item? The hexagon wood stove?
gliese581g.williem
Nope, it is for the converter. The Hexagon stove is +$12.
