Mountain Crossings offers everything from the popular canister fuel stoves that many hikers use to the most ultralight alcohol stoves one can find on the market. Whether you are looking for the very controlled realm of self igniting canister stoves
or are looking to venture into the world of self administered alcohol stoves
, you have come to the right place. If you are wary of open flame and don't want to be messing around with highly flammable and combustable liquids around fire, steering away from an alcohol stove is probably best for you. If you are comfortable around open flames and don't have any qualms about being in close contact with highly flammable and combustable liquids around fire, choosing to ditch the canister stove and go with an alcohol stove is a good way to potentially be able to drop a bit of weight. Regardless, it is very important to always make sure you are comfortable and proficient at using your stove before leaving for a backpacking trip.
