The Super Cat Alcohol Stove is the lightest and most weight efficient stove setup for trips under 12 days. Alcohol stoves have the best overall value and are the first choice for lightweight backpacking trips under 12 days. Even though they burn three times as much fuel as an integrated canister stove, the lightweight stove makes up for the additional fuel.
It is compatible with the Delta Gear Canteen Kit and Deluxe Canteen Kit. It can be used without the stove stand, as pictured, or with the stove stand if you need a windscreen. For a solid fuel stove, we recommend the Canteen Cup Stand, which doubles as a windscreen for the alcohol stove. Solid fuels, like Hexamine or Trioxane, are lighter and more reliable than alcohol, but more expensive. Take one or two solid fuel tabs with you to use at the end of your trip once the heavier alcohol fuel has been used up, or to have as a backup. Solid fuel stoves are the most reliable stoves, and, even if you run out of fuel, you will always have a way to cook as long as you can find dry wood. Both the alcohol stove and solid fuel stove can be lit with a Ferro-Rod Fire Starter.
The Super Cat (AKA Fancy Feast) Stove is easy to build per the original instructions or this video. It reaches a boil faster than any alcohol stove, but the standard hole pattern may not be as efficient as other stoves. It can even outperform the Vargo Triad. If boil duration is not as important as ease of construction or cost, the homemade Super Cat Stove with 1/4 inch holes is the way to go. If you want the longest boil duration and highest efficiency, check out our Super Cat which uses a star and 1/8 inch holes. If you would like a hole pattern different than our standard optimized pattern, please email us and we will custom make a Super Cat for you at no additional charge.
