Cold weather won’t stop the versatile Optimus Vega canister stove. When temperatures dip, simply flip over the canister (sold separately) and quickly adjust the stove for efficient fuel conversion.
NOTE: The Vega does require the use of a fuel canister (sold separately). A blend of 75% butane and 25% butane/propane, Optimus gas provides consistent, reliable backcountry performance. An 8-ounce canister will provide up to 160 minutes of burn time at the highest maximum output.
Integrated turbo boost in Four Season Mode reduces cook time by as much as 20 percent, saving time and fuel while in the backcountry. Depending on climate and altitude, the Vega will boil 1 liter of water in as little as 4.5 minutes.
With its precise simmer control and the included wind shield, the Vega is more than just a boiler of water. The large burner head prevents spot burning when simmering sauces or other temperature-sensitive foods.
The rugged, low-profile design of the Optimus Vega provides stability on a variety of terrains, while the compact size (5.11" x 2.76" x 2.56") and 6.28 ounce weight (without canister) are certainly backpacker-friendly.
