The Trangia Spirit Stove Range

 

Trangia spirit stove

You know, there is a fact about the Trangia spirit stove that amazes people. As incredible as it may sound, this stove has been around since 1925! If you are travelling light as a backpacker, hiker or by canoe, these lightweight stoves (which were originally designed for the Swedish military) should be at the top of your list for preparing hot food and drink.

The Trangia is available as a gas powered unit, but this is nowhere near as popular as the methylated spirit / denatured alcohol version. I mentioned the Swedish military earlier. Did you know that the Trangia brass burner is still standard issue mess kit for use in the field, going on 100 years after its introduction.

The Trangia mini is a firm favourite with anyone carrying their home on their back weighing in at just 330 grammes, which is less than 12 ounces. For outdoor types these lightweight stoves are the natural choice.
