Kraku titanium stove

Only available for sale in UK

Our camping stoves are currently only available for sale to customers in the UK. We are exploring the issues surrounding warranties, shipping and user instructions so that we can make these more widely available.

Designed with the solo adventurer in mind, this high powered gas stove has a tiny packsize but can still deliver the power output of a gas stove twice its size.

Eating well can make or break an adventure, but so can carrying a heavy stove. The Kraku is the world's lightest, commercially available, ultralight gas stove. Its sleek, compact design perfectly balances usability, pack weight and storage size; qualities which make it a superb choice for the ambitious long distance backpacker, micro adventurer or adventure racer.

Kraku is as minimal as a gas stove gets. Titanium body, twisted wire gas control dial and a small burner head. It screws directly on top of your gas canister which it uses for stability. Partner it up with a MytiMug and a 100g gas cylinder and you have a compact cooking system that will minimise the pack weight of many gram counting outdoor chefs.

  • 2013 ISPO Gold winner

This little , and i mean tiny!!! gem is amazing, My new bike packing kit is super light now with the cooker, small canister and Ti 650ml cup. Lighter than the jet boil sol ti and just as quick. A real treasure to have in your outdoor kit,

Difficult to see how you could make a gas stove any smaller! I bought as an emergency brewkit with the mytimug. Well made and puts out adequate heat. The flame/burner is very narrow so I would imagine you would need to keep your food stirred if you are not boiling water. Overall a great purchase if you are after as small as stove as possible.

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.

As a child, Myriam had always had a keen interest in history which developed in to a total passion for archeology. This Autumn was going to be terrific. Myriam was joining the rest of the students for work experience in Utah. They were going to be the Fremont and Anasazi cultures at Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. There was even going to be a few nights bivvying in the desert and lots of opportunity to climb the gorgeous red sandstone.
