Snow Peak’s BiPod Portable Camping Stove

When it comes to backcountry stoves, there are a plethora of possibilities out there. You have the larger sized, expedition-style stoves on one hand and ultralight, pocket-sized burners on the other. For bikepacking, compact and lighter is much better, but it is not always less complicated. The smaller burners ordinarily use a quite compact tripod or even just the gas canister alone as help, which can lead to extra than just spilled milk and justified tears.

The BiPod from Snow Peak usually takes an fascinating option to the stability vs. weight/packability conundrum—it’s a bipod stove, entire with a valve to modify the flame depth for much better simmering, that uses the gas canister as a third leg to entire tripod balance. It’s a fairly large tripod as very well, and with the large supports over the burner, larger sized pots ought to have no stability problems. Made from a blend of stainless steel, aluminum, plastic and brass, the BiPod weighs in a 216 grams. Which is a bit heavier than other extra common ultralight possibilities (excluding liquor stoves), but certainly significantly less than the larger sized backcountry stoves that offer a very similar total of balance.

If you are right after the lightest, fastest system out there, the BiPod could not be it. But if you want a small extra ease and comfort in your lifetime right after prolonged times in the saddle, it’s possible the BiPod is just the point for you.
