The lightweight, compact, dependable Optimus Nova Stove takes on the harshest conditions from arctic travel to high altitude mountaineering. It runs on white gas, Optimus arctic fuel, kerosene, diesel, and jet fuel, which is why it has become a popular choice for expedition travel where fuel may be limited. The Nova Stove's quick priming gets a roaring flame going quickly, and the adjustable heat lets you simmer as well as boil. This burly white gas expedition stove weighs only 15 ounces and packs smaller than a fuel bottle. Get one for base camp and one to pack for your ultralight summit push.
