When it comes to wood burning backpacking stoves there are a few options and designs on the market. One that we’ve always enjoyed is the folding box stove. A few years ago the guys at Merk Wares brought the Emberlit Stove to market. This stainless steel flat folding wood burning box stove is a simple and solid design. With that in mind, it seems they found that there is a need for a smaller, lighter version of the Emberlit, which we completely agree with. Enter the Emberlit Stoves FireAnt Titanium Stove. Currently this new ultra-light stove design is only in the Kickstarter phase right now, but is on track to meet it’s funding goal (now reached and exceeded). Lucky for us, we made it in on this bad boy early. Now we play the waiting game.
Update: We now have our Fireant in hand and have posted our full review here.
