Solo Stove Titan - 2-4 Person Lightweight Wood Burning Stove. Compact Camp Stove Kit for Backpacking, Camping, Survival. Burns Twigs - No Batteries or Liquid Fuel Canisters Needed.

  • GEAR OF THE YEAR WINNER - RECOMMENDED BY BACKPACKER MAGAZINE. The Solo Stove Titan is the #1 wood-burning backpacking stove recommended by Backpacker Magazine and serious survivalists including Discovery Channel's Matt Graham. Winner of 2014 Gear of the Year award from 50 Campfires & Section Hiker.
  • PATENTED DESIGN - LESS SMOKE. The patented design features a unique double wall that creates ultra-clean gasification and a secondary combustion. This allows fuel to burn more completely and with less smoke.
  • FUEL IS FREE. No more spending money on white gas or expensive liquid canister fuel. Solo Stoves use twigs, leaves, pinecones and wood as fuel. Free up more space in your backpack and eliminate the need to carry heavy, polluting and expensive canister fuels.
  • COMPACT SPACE SAVING DESIGN. The Solo Stove Titan is designed to nest inside the companion Solo Stove Pot 1800 (sold separately) leaving you with more room in your backpack.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT & FAST BOIL TIME. Boils water in 4-6 mins (34 fl oz water). 5.1" Diameter, 5.6"/7.9" tall (packed/assembled). Weighs only 16.5 oz. Made of premium stainless steel and nichrome wire. Nylon stuff sack included.
The patented (#D701,721) Solo Stove Titan is the larger version of the original Solo Stove. It is a unique wood burning stove that incorporates a secondary combustion for a more efficient and cleaner burn. The bottom vents allow air to enter and flow up the bottom of the grate to feed the primary combustion, a top down smolder. In addition, air entering in from the bottom vents heats up within the inner wall and rises up and out the top firebox vents causing a secondary combustion at the top of the stove. The Solo Stove Titan actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once, but twice! This technique makes for a cleaner burn which means less smoke and higher efficiency.

Forget the Fuel: Our stoves cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. It's easy to light, fast to boil and clean to use.

Gasify your Wood: A unique gasification and secondary combustion process lets our stoves achieve a highly efficient and more complete burn. This means you'll use fewer twigs to achieve a boil. It also means less smoke while cooking.

Travel Lighter: The Solo Stove Titan only weighs 16.5 oz and eliminates the need to carry fuel canisters - a great way to lighten your load. It also nests inside most pots leaving you with more space in your pack.

Stay Green: By using renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum, you're reducing your carbon footprint. You'll also keep fuel canisters out of the landfill.

Be Prepared: The Solo Stove is great for emergency situations.

    Essential Gear:
    The kit is so useful it should be included in the MSR Whisperlite International Liquid-Fuel Stove package.
    I tune-up all my gear on New Year’s Day (if I’m not out in the field).
    Therefore my MSR Stove is always in perfect operating condition, reliable when I need it most.
    Wilderness medical emergencies always require bomb-proof gear.
    If MSR included this with the basic stove package, I’d find a way to rate it six stars.
    Get it now.
    Now.

    The MSR Whisperlite, Simmerlite, XGK and Dragonfly camping stoves are field-maintainable and will serve you for decades, but inevitably some small parts will need replacement. O-rings don’t last forever, and you might run out of pump cup oil or lose the metal tool needed to unscrew parts.

    This little Annual Service Kit will help you keep your MSR stove in working condition. It consists of two of every o-ring size, the big, thick seal that covers the pump and the top of the fuel bottle, a safety pin to easily remove old o-rings, a tube of pump cup oil and the metal tool. There’s a detailed instruction sheet for how to replace the parts in the stove, though anyone fixing their stove up at home should take advantage of the many videos on the internet where you can see the process step by step.

    This little kit did help me fix a showstopping problem with my Whisperlite International stove, namely a worn o-ring on the handle that would cause fuel to spray out of the valve. However, I was disappointed to find that the Annual Service Kit is missing two parts that nearly anyone would like to have spares for. One is a a replacement shaker jet needle; it’s just a tiny piece of metal, why leave it out? The other is a replacement foam filter for the pump, which is useful for all travellers in the third-world who have to rely on very impure petrol.

    It turns out that there is a somewhat larger repair kit for MSR stoves, the Expedition Service Kit. It appears to come in separate versions for Whisperlite, Simmerlite, XGK and Dragonfly models. Though the Expeditions Kit are more expensive, the difference is not so large, I think, to recommend this limited Annual Service Kit above those full kits. I wish I had bought that instead.

    This review is from: Solo Stove Titan – Larger Version of Original Solo Stove. Lightweight Wood Burning Rocket Cooking System. Compact Kitchen Kit for Backpacking, Camping, Survival, Emergency Preparation. Burns Twigs – No Batteries or Liquid Fuel Gas Canister Required (Misc.)

    A quick intro to me (so you know where I’m coming from with my review): I’m almost always on a budget, so I’m always on the hunt for the absolute best way to spend my money. I don’t like gimmicks and I don’t like flashy “high tech” gear that tries to be ultra-lightweight while sacrificing value (i.e. costing itself right out of my budget). I hit the trail and backcountry twice, maybe three times per year, so I want to make the most out of my cherished days away–so I want things to work and not put a damper on the trip. I’m not a “prepper,” but I do like to think about bad and/or worst-case scenarios and how gear might help out in those situations. If a piece of gear can be useful under normal and emergency circumstances, it gets bonus points for me.

    I was introduced to the original Solo Stove (the smaller one released a year or two before the Titan). Since then, I’ve monitored the company via Facebook and emails and I’ve been impressed with the interaction from the owner and the interest he takes in the product’s reputation by engaging with customers and listening to their concerns and recommendations. I had put two or three backcountry trips on my Solo Stove before the Titan was released and I was impressed with the product already. When I saw the Titan, I wanted to try it out as well, so I ordered one up.

    After a recent backcountry canoe trip on Fontana Lake in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I put the Titan to the test. Other than open firepit cooking, it was my sole source of heat for boiling water. I’ve used fire starters with the original solo stove ( I don’t care if it’s cheating, I’m not trying to earn any Boy Scout badges…I just want my water boiled!), so I carried on that practice with the Titan. I use little dome-shaped pucks that can found at REI for about $5 per 10 or 12. They’re basically sawdust stuck together and take a flame quickly. That said, I did make an attempt to start the fire twice without a starter puck. The first time I had success with some dry pine needles and a survival-type fire starter. The second time I got impatient!

    There really is no other preparation to it–no fuel to bring or plan ahead. Just show up at your campsite and scrounge for some twigs. Of course, you need a pot to boil water in. I used the Solo Pot 900 (the original one made for the original Solo Stove). The only thing you really need to pay attention to is the diameter of the twig fuel you collect. as a rough rule, I try to keep them less than 1/2 inch in diameter, closer to 1/4 inch really. Too large and they aren’t as easy to keep burning hot and fast. I have noticed some difference between species of wood, but not enough to exclude any one type due to lack of performance. Also, be sure to have enough on hand to keep the fire fed while boiling. Because the Solo Stove burns so efficiently, it eats through some fuel! It is not a set it and forget it heat source–at least not in my experience. You’ll want to make sure you’ve got a large handful of twigs (easily gathered in less than 5 minutes at a typical wooded campsite). To put them in the Titan’s firepit, they’ll need to be broken into 3 to 4 inch lengths.

    I timed my boils for the first few trials, but I’ve since forgotten the numbers (oops!). I can say that it does not take long. Sure, a fueled “speedy” stove will boil quicker, but who’s racing? You’re backcountry camping and shouldn’t have anywhere to be or anything to do. It’s rewarding to sit at the stove and keep it fed to make your boiled water. If you’re like the vast majority of other fellow weekend warriors, it’s a thrill to be out and self-reliant, including the “chores” associated with the campsite. Those folks with the “speedy” stoves might laugh at your boil time, but who’s laughing when they lose that little tiny critical widget that keeps their space station gadget teetering between a useless bundle of junk and a delicate (but quick) backcountry stove? With the Solo Stove, there’s no moving parts, no pins to fall out, no canisters to replace, and really nothing to break or bend. Sure, it’s metal, but this thing would work if you rolled it down a mountainside and picked it up at the bottom and used it immediately.

    As far as the physical aspect of it, the Titan is relatively light and stows easily. Sure, it’s larger than the original Solo Stove, but if you need compact, that’s why there’s the original one. If you can afford a small amount of extra space, the Titan is great for backpacking or car camping. The only advantage I think the original Solo Stove has is the ability to fit inside the Solo Pot 900 (or equivalent pot). I don’t know for sure, but I don’t think the other pots offered currently from the company allow the Titan to be stowed inside. I’m sure there’s another brand that would allow this though.

    Overall, I’m impressed with this product’s ingenuity and…

    This review is from: Solo Stove Titan – Larger Version of Original Solo Stove. Lightweight Wood Burning Rocket Cooking System. Compact Kitchen Kit for Backpacking, Camping, Survival, Emergency Preparation. Burns Twigs – No Batteries or Liquid Fuel Gas Canister Required (Misc.)
    I’ve been using the original Solo Stove since last fall. It is my go to stove when I want to travel light and use the wood I find on the trail. I also do some car camping (not backpacking) so I figured I give this larger version of the stove a try and boy was I surprised by just how much more fun the larger size stove is over the original.

    It’s only a couple of inches taller and half an inch wider than the original, but it is so much easier to use. The larger size allows you to use longer twigs, so you don’t have to feed it as much as the smaller original. It also has a larger area in which to feed the twigs so you can use thicker twigs.

    The craftsmanship of these stoves in phenomenal: The outer wall is made out of a single piece of 304 stainless steel. It looks like it was spun to create the bucket shape. The inner wall is also made from a singe piece. There are no welds anywhere on the burner. The pot stand does have few welds and they are perfectly done.

    This a woodgas stove that uses gasification to completely and efficiently burn twigs to create ample heat. I boiled 16 oz of water in less than 9 minutes using twigs I found in the park to make coffee. I then used a skillet on the stove and made eggs and bacon. I was amazed at how much fun it was to use.

    Lately, the area parks are crowed and I isn’t always possible to find a spot there that has a fire pit or burner. Now that I have my Titan, it doesn’t matter. I can have a fire anywhere.

    I made a couple of videos comparing the two models of the Solo Stove and demonstrating how to prepare bacon and eggs. Check them out at these links:
    Part 1: […]
    Part 2: […]

    I recommend this to all campers. You’ll have fun too.
