SOTO Amicus

Lightest stove

Brand: Soto

Model: Amicus




“This fist-size stove is small but mighty,” one tester says. “I nearly lost it in my pack, but it still cranked out the BTUs near 10,662-foot Vail Pass in Colorado.” There are tradeoffs for the miniscule size, though: Despite a low wall around the burner head, wind still slowed cook times (though the stove never blew out). And large pots are unstable on the Amicus’s small supports. But it does have a piezo igniter, and burns consistently in temps around freezing. Boil time for 1 liter of water: 4:20 Fuel efficiency: 12 grams for 1 liter of water
