Product Highlights

An ideal option for thru-hikers and ultra-lightweight enthusiasts, the Optimus Crux Lite/Terra Solo Cook Set combines everything you need for backcountry meals into a single unit. The Crux Lite stove weighs a mere 2.7 ounces and folds down to fit easily and efficiently into the Terra Solo cookware.

Made of durable, stainless materials, the Crux Lite's 2 inch-diameter burner effectively distributes heat, providing an even cooking surface for backcountry meals. Depending on altitude and temperature conditions, this tiny powerhouse can boil a quart of water in as little as 3 minutes! An integrated foldable burner control allows you to adjust the height of the Crux Lite's flame without any fear of burning your hand.

Three ergonomic, serrated pot supports lend stability and accommodate most backpacking pots, pans and skillets. Folded out of the way, the pot supports tuck under the head of the burner.

Made of hard-anodized aluminum, the Terra Solo consists of a 0.6L cookpot with a lid that doubles as a frypan. Measuring just 4.8" x 4.1", the Terra Solo can enclose the Crux Lite, a fuel canister and even a Folding Spork!

NOTE: The Crux Lite requires the use of a canister of Optimus Gas (sold separately). A blend of 70% butane and 30% propane, Optimus Gas provides consistent, reliable 3-season backcountry performance. No priming or pumping is needed when using Optimus Gas canisters. An 8-ounce canister of Optimus Gas will provide up to 60 minutes of burn time at the highest maximum output.

Each Optimus Crux Lite/Terra Solo Cook Set includes a mesh stuff bag and instructions.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: A nice set with some great additional pieces you can buy (i.e., the windshield) that integrate well into storage and the efficiency of the unit

    Dislikes: None, good set here for single packer.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: The stove is extremely small and light weight. I like the fact the stove and feul can nest inside the cook pot and save space while protecting the stove. The cook pot is the perfect size for a solo trip.

    Dislikes: I would rather just have flat lid on the pot. the lid is too small to be very helpful. I wish the cook pot had more amount markings on the side of the pot.

  • Noah F. Toledo OH

    Likes: Seems like a great little stove and pot havent been able to use it yet. But its a nice light weight both the stove and pot. Packs up pretty small so it wont take up a bunch of room.

    Dislikes: Nothing yet havent had a real chance to use it.

  • Tashi Y. Astoria NY

    Likes: compact and good for light cooking/boiling water etc.- make sure that you find a good place to block the wind. Also, the gas canister does not come with the product. I brought separately for around $6

    Dislikes: None

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Haven't put it through a lot of use yet, but so far so good. It is a very light stove and stows inside the pot/mug easily. I really like the plastic coating on the pot handles. All in all, it a solid little stove and cookset for one person and takes up very little space inside a pack.

    Dislikes: Optimus recommends using only Optimus fuel canisters (of course), so I am cautious about trying a different brand.

    Can be unstable if not set up on a solid flat surface - would probably be better if Optimus made a folding base for the canister to fit into.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: This is a great combo product at a great price if you are looking for something extremely lightweight and compact.

    Dislikes: I ended up returning it because I decided that I wanted a cooking pot that's bigger, even if it means carrying a little more weight.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: I like the compact size and how lightweight it is.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • michael m. Wilmington NC

    Likes: About as small as a stove can be. Great stove for the price and a great stove for anyone trying to keep the weight off. Packs up very small. Very happy with the product.

    Dislikes: A little less wind resistant than i would like. As long as your not on top of a windy mountain, should do you right.

  • jacqueline j. hartland WI

    Likes: so lightweight and durable. can scrape it with a spoon and there's no scratching on the surface. nice design. love optimus products.
