Save 30% on Vargo gear with code vargo30
We can sum up Vargo’s design philosophy in two words: no bullshit.
Founded by an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, Vargo makes gear for people who put in serious miles. The company’s pots, pans, and stoves are among the lightest we’ve ever tested, but they’re still sturdy enough to hold up against life on the road or trail.
This one-minute video should give you some idea what we’re talking about:
By combining Vargo’s Converter/Hexagon stove with the Ti-Boiler pot/pan combo, our writer developed a complete camp kitchen that weighs less than a single pound. Not bad.
Vargo also sells the Ultimate Firestarter: a primitive skills multitool that combines a spark rod with a collapsible bellows. That’s a must-have item for all wilderness survival enthusiasts.
