Nothing ruins a backpacking trip quite as fast as the wind snuffing out your stove at the end of a 12 mile day, delaying a well deserved dinner. It's a good thing you have the Snow Peak Geo Shield Stove, which has an integrated windscreen that protects your flame while still allowing proper oxygen flow. The Geo Shield is built around a remote canister design that allows for both inverted and topside up fuel position. Snow Peak built this puppy out of aluminum alloy and brass, keeping the weight down to a mere 3. 25oz. That's not to say it's weak in the power department, as its 10,000 BTU output allows you to boil a liter of room temperature water in less than 4. 5 minutes. Snow Peak also designed this thing to accommodate larger pots and pans, so you don't have to worry about things spilling when you're cooking for the whole campsite.
