A bit fiddly- if you have to move the stove (uneven ground, bit windy etc) then the arms fold in on themselves very easily. Fine if its cool but not the easiest to put back when they’re glowing red!

Outstanding.  This thing is not just light, but also really, really tiny, especially when it’s folded.  takes up no space at all.  Perfect for lightweight backpacking.  The tight flame pattern is perfect for small-diameter pots or my Ti mug and the heat output is impressive.  It was slightly disconcerting at first to see the pot support glowing red with heat, but it doesn’t do any harm and it looks cool - especially on a dark winter’s evening.

Love this stove - it’s tiny and weighs nowt but boils you a brew super quick. Fits nicely in my alpkit titanium cup, too. Can’t believe it only cost £25 - a bargain! Couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

A great little stove that puts out a huge amount of heat when opened up but can still be easily controlled to a lower flame when needed. It has already been out on a couple of trips and despite its size is quite rugged. What’s more, I can happily fit the stove alongside a small gas cylinder and freeze dried meal in my Mytimug.

First use of the Alpkit Kraku Backpacking Gas Stove

Clive's Blog January 2014 - Clive Catton

Lightweight backpacking enthusiast Clive Catton chose the Kraku as a personal backpacking stove where weight is everything finding it to be considerably lighter than the MSR Pocket Rocket.

Overall (so far) I am very pleased with the Alpkit Kraku stove – it is very small and light. Well made and efficient – boiling a mug of water significantly quicker then if I had used my meths stove. Because it is so light I may be changing my backpacking habits and using a gas stove more than the ultralight Vargo titanium meth stove I currently use.
