Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wood stove I borrowed my burner from my vargo alcohol stove to help get this stove going. It works fine without the burner as well. Water boils in about 7 minutes. This stove allows you to control oxygen with the side door or add fuel to continue cooking. I use ti-ware cookery and your pot will carbon up which is about the only thing that i had to adapt to. Sticks about the size of pencils work best. Also gather your dry wood that is not in contact with the ground for maximum dryness. If you have a vargo burner you can run the stove on pure alcohol. I usually only need about an ounce of alcohol to start the wood up. over all a great buy and a darn good way to cook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok The stove needs longer legs, because while it worked great on our asphalt driveway, it was starved for air on dirt. On dirt the stove and saucepan weight pushed the stove down into the dirt, limiting the air inflow from below. We dug a small pit underneath and put the legs on the edges of the pit. Then it was great. It's really cute, too. I'd almost buy another just to have on a shelf. Yes, you do have to babysit and tend the flames, you'll get soot deposition on your cookware, it is really really hot and will boil water quickly and it'll drive away bugs. You need small, dry wood sticks and a little firestarter like dryer lint or wax paper to get things rolling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always in my pack... The other reviews are really spot-on so I won't recap them here. I don't leave home without this in my pack. When I go local I use it with a small can of Sterno inside; otherwise, thumb-size wood keeps a nice fire going. When you are not feeding the fire keep the stove "door" closed for optimal heating. I can get veggies to saute in a standard collapsible cooking pan in about three minutes, and water to boil in a pot in just a few minutes more. This product really is worth the price. I have gotten plenty of hot meals, clean water, dry socks, and warm hands because of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new mainstay in my pack As with any new product, I decided to test this stove out at home prior to taking it into the field. I tested the stove out on a pot (4 quarts) that was above the range suggested of 1.5 quarts. The stove performed amazing. Even with a larger pot sitting on top, it was still able to perform. If this is going to be your only form of boiling water, it will require a lot of TLC to keep it going. If you use it as a secondary (have a fire going and put coals into it) it works amazing. I only have one con with the design but it was easily overcome. With the front door being opened to add fuel and the vents on the bottom, I noticed the stove had a dead spot directly across from the door. I added two holes (a little smaller that the bottom holes) on the far wall. With the holes added, the dead spot was gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything it is supposed to be I bought this on a recent trip to Seattle. It is exceptionally light weight, boils the kettle with very little wood, tidies up in seconds, and, most importantly, leaves very little trace in the woods. After a long and fairly harsh winter, there are lots of dead alders here, and they are just the thing to burn in the Varga titanium stove. You do not use big wood, so there is no sawing or cutting involved, just crack off the dry twigs, and in about ten minutes (in 5 degree Celcius weather) the water is boiling for your tea! One note to potential users, you will need some tinder, I used part of a hexamine block, to get the fire started. I am going to get some cotton balls today, and mix them with some petroleum jelly. All in all, a great little stove, weighs almost nothing, fits in your pocket, and a great souvenir of Seattle & the REI store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and dual purpose This stove has been great. My friend bought a similar stove and I have wanted a wood burning stove like his. He has to assemble his every use. With this stove it sets up quick fast and from one piece. I particularly like this style of stove since I have started using an alcohol stove I needed a good windscreen and this works for that purpose AND it works as a "backup" stove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good backup I just picked this stove up thinking it would be a good option. I tested it out in my back yard to make sure I wouldn't be left with a dud in the field and was overall happy with the performance. Thumb thick sticks about 4" long seemed to work best but feeding the stove was challenging as the side opening really puts out some heat. There were times the flame went out when adding sticks, so I had to blow into the stove to reignite the flame (which was easy). It was breezy today but it didn't seem to phase the stove. You do need to be attentive to this little stove as the fuel burns up quickly, but it definitely does the job. It did take longer than expected to get my meal cooked (rice and sausage) and I would estimate I sat there feeding the stove with my pot on top for 20 min. After the fire burned out, the stove cooled quickly and left very little ash behind. I wouldn't want this as a primary source to cook with, but it does work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from survival stove when all else fails, this stove is a great thing to have... the vargo hexagon excels as a windscreen/pot stand for my alcohol/fuelgel stoves, but it also works great with the small wood fuel it was designed for... simple, strong, lightweight, compact, a solid versatile design, the vargo hexagon is an all around winner!

I hike/camp Rocky Mountain National Park. I currently do not have a stove and this wood stove is very attractive to me. Will this stove do well as a primary stove there? Also if anyone knows, does this meet the requirements for a stove only campsite?

Asked by: Dauph
The Titanium Hexagon Backpacking Wood Stove will work as a primary stove as long as you have a reliable fuel source. If you are uncertain if there will be sufficient natural fuel available, you may consider bringing dedicated fuel for the stove, such as Esbit Solid Fuel Tablets: You will need to contact the Rocky Mountain National Park to inquire about wood burning stove regulations.

Could you use a small alcohol stove, something like the Vargo Decagon stove, with this as an alternative fuel source?

Asked by: LCB123
​You could put a small alcohol stove in this if needed, but the flame of the alcohol stove would now be much farther away than the pot itself, so it may not work as well as just using an alcohol stove on its own.
