It seems that we truly are living in the age of information and innovation. Everything from technology to camping gear is becoming more compact and, yet, all the more powerful. Earlier we featured the Ecozoom Dura Rocket Stove that stood as a testament to a powerful burner but on an even more compact and still powerful scale, is the Toaks Titanium Backpacking Wood Stove.
Small, compact, easy to carry and burns like a pyre is what can be said for the Toaks. It also won the Outdoor Industry Award in 2015.
We all know that titanium is an exceptionally tough and durable metal and that’s why the Toaks is made from it. However, we did say that it is small and perfect for backpacking. The Toaks only measures 4 1/8” in diameter x 4 1/8” in height when packed and extends to 4 1/8” diameter x 8” in height when unpacked. Because it is so small, the Toaks only weighs 225g. This means that you can easily slip it into your backpack and be on your way. Check out the video below.
Because the Toaks is a wood burning stove, there is no need for propane or butane and the way that it works (and why it won an award), is because the Toaks features a 2nd and 3rd combustion mechanism that combusts the wood and wood gas to ensure an optimal thermal flow field. Needless to say, it’s small but it is extremely efficient.
The Toaks comes with an easy carry bag so that you can take it on all your adventures.
