This is a super lightweight, ultralite, multi-fuel, backpacking stove that can also be used for hiking, camping, bushcraft, survival, prepper. It is made of titanium which is stronger than metal but lighter than metal. It fits inside the gsi minimalist pot giving you a complete cook system that is lightweight, able to burn biomass, alcohol, or esbit tablets. This makes it very versatile.

This is a really simple method to make your own home-made firestarter for use when tinder is wet.  It is cheap, easy to make, and super lightweight.  There is not reason why you shouldn’t have these with you when hiking, camping, backpacking or out practicing bushcraft, survival, or even have them in your bug out bag for preppers.  If you liked this video, there are many more on my youtube channel.

This is a video I did about how to add a firestarter (ferrorod) to a multiple tool and keep it secured in the case.  It makes a great addition for EDC (every day carry) and can be used for hiking, backpacking, camping, bushcraft, survival, prepper.  In the video description on youtube, there is also a link to my amazon store where you can buy the same gear.  Like, subscribe, share, and comment on youtube if you have questions.

I accidentally blew away my 2015 UL gear list, so I recreated them and the url changed.  The contents are mostly the same.  Here are the links:

So much has changed since 2014…..I keep getting lighter and lighter or more comfortable (in the event something I replaced from 2014 was actually heavier … i.e. I started using a Osprey Exos 58 whenever I needed to take an underquilt.  The underquilt simply wouldn’t fit with the other gear in the Outdoor Products 46L pack)


You can see my gear lists at geargrams.com:

3-Season Ultralite (would be much lighter without camera gear used for Adventures of Ed)

Winter (would be much lighter without camera gear used for Adventures of Ed)

Optional (This is another set of gear I keep around for friends, its basically stuff I bought, used, upgraded)
