Why We Chose The Bushbox LF Titanium: Very convenient, well made, fun
Bushcraft Essentials have one of those very basic but very functional websites that in its simplicity gives off an air of self-assuredness. It’s as if they know they’ve got the goods and they don’t need to do any dressing up. You could say we knew, even before ordering this product, that it was going to do what it’s supposed to do well… and we weren’t let down.
Who Is The Bushbox LF Titanium For?
Based on those old-timey hobo-style type camping stoves that have been around for centuries, this is the type of option that will mainly appeal towards the bushcrafters/survivalists/woodsmen and women out there, those people who want something hardy, long-lasting and, in a way, fail-safe. Most will use kindling such as twigs with it but you could also use solid fuel tablets or a trangia burner.
“It’s a stove with a small enough packed size to fit into your trouser pocket.”
What about for hiking and wild camping? Well, after a long, wet day in the Lake District, there’s no denying that most people will prefer to have the quick reliability of a gas burner, but if your hiking in summer and you can count of things being dry, these types of stoves make for a very fun, satisfying and eco-friendly way of cooking.
Bushcraft Essentials make portable stoves of all different shapes and sizes so you can pick the right product to suit your type of activity and needs. There’s the massive Bushbox that you could get a small bonfire going in, the mini ‘EDC’ one that’s about the size of a fist, and then there’s this, the middling sort, which in our books is the one that’s best suited to the needs of a hiker or backpacker. It’s a stove with a small enough packed size to fit into your trouser pocket but then it’s large enough to support the 1.5L pot that you’re going to cook your Super Noodles in. Thanks to the use of titanium metal, the whole stove weighs just 270g, a whole 200g lighter than the standard steel one.
