A true ultra-lightweight option for thru-hikers and ounce-counting backpackers, the award-winning Snow Peak LiteMax Stove employs titanium and aluminum construction to weigh in at a mere 1.9 ounces! Despite its lightweight design, the LiteMax Stove delivers reliable backcountry performance.

Three folding pot support arms open wide to provide the LiteMax Stove with a 3.5" wide base for pots and pans. Once you've finished with mealtime and are ready to get back on the trail, the LiteMax Stove packs down to 3 1/8" x 2 3/8".

The canister-style LiteMax Stove is threaded to fit standard Snow Peak GigaPower fuel canisters (sold separately). Utilizing the isobutene/propane mix, the LiteMax Stove cranks out 11,200 BTUs for efficient performance even in poor conditions and temperatures as low as 17 degrees Fahrenheit. A fold-down flame control bar allows you to adjust the height of the flame as needed.

A storage bag is included with the Snow Peak LiteMax Stove.

Love it
Reviewed by Amanda C. - November 14, 2018

Likes: It's fast enough for me. I like the wide flame. My 750ml pot sits securely on top. Super lightweight and tiny. I previously had a jetboil which I felt left too much room for error. This is basic and straightforward.

Dislikes: The forearms don't stay collapsed, they easily flip out when it's folded up. But it's not a big deal because they're so small.

Excellent stove

Well made light weight stove
Reviewed by Steve V. - September 7, 2017

Likes: The size, weight and construction are exactly what I wanted. I ran out and purchases a jetboil fuel canister and it worked great.

Dislikes: None. Some of the support arms turned red from the flames but after some research it seems normal.

Tiny but mighty!
Reviewed by Adam S. - March 28, 2017

Likes: Super small, folds up tiny
Includes carrying case
Powerful heat

Dislikes: Just be careful with whatever you put on it... Small size = greater chance of an "oops"

Reviewed by Anthony W. - February 10, 2015

Likes: Compact and light weight. Gets hot fast in shelter or when there is no wind. Its smaller sibling, the Giga Power, with its windscreen performs as well or better.

Dislikes: Nothing.

Reviewed by Sean A. - July 21, 2014

Likes: In my honest opinion this is the best canister stove on the market today.

Dislikes: nothing
