Designed with the ultralight 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.  A titanium body makes the Kraku possibly 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'll be cooking up a storm with this compact cooking system that will minimise the pack weight of many gram counting outdoor chefs.

The perfect package for one

Awesome little stove, as described, packs away into a 650 Mytimug with a 100g gas can with room to spare. Will fit a army style boil in the bag ration pack (just). I partnered mine up with a gas can base support from a Jetboil and a Primus windshield. The perfect package for one person? Just make sure you don't put an empty mug of the stove otherwise you'll have a hole in it in seconds!

The Mighty Midget!

This little stove is absolutely awesome, seriously lightweight and packs a mighty punch! I've fallen in love with this wee bute and take it on all my trips. One of my favourite bits of kit grin

Brilliant bit of kit, but...

I decided to pop to the Alpkit warehouse to have a look around and picked up one of these little gems for £15 (it was a returned model). I also bought a 'Concertina' wind shield to go with it. I didn't realise that the added height of the gas canister brought the Kraku above the wind shield (bugger).

This thing boils water quicker than my remote canister stove (which incidentally works great with the Concertina) and takes up no space at all.

I would recommend this for anybody getting into lightweight kit, or looking to save space...

ps. The fact that it doesn't work with the Concertina is not an issue at all. It's my own stupid fault for not checking first (in with both feet at all times).

Kraku stove , myti mug 400 ando 650 , Alpkit titanium folding fork and spoon , small swiss army knife. All fits together , Small and compact and comes ski touring with me every week. Can't recommend enough.

Great bit of kit

Brilliant for its intended purpose, boiling water and preparing simple meals for the lightweight solo traveller. If there's more than one of you or you want to do some proper cooking then there are better choices.

Tiny size, massive punch!

This insane stove has served me well. It's not once let me down, even after I flooded it with volcanic coffee! (Tip: always add the coffee AFTER the water has boiled and not before or it will explode everywhere when it comes to a boil! Who knew!)
Boils a 660ml MyTi mug before you can even get your snacks out of the bag! Insane!
I've even used it with my HAAP set. Looks precarious perched on there but I didn't have any issues with stability but I was über careful.

Mmm.... undecided. ..

Recurved this little thing today and thought I'd give it a whiz with my MytiMug to cook up some beans to go on my toast. I'd read somewhere else that the tight flame pattern could cause food to burn so I was careful to stir the beans continually until they were hot, which didn't treasure long even though it was on as low a setting as I could manage.

Lovely, impossible to clean off burn mark on the inside of my lovely new MytiMug. Sad to say the least, I so wanted these things to be awesome.

Cooker or gas canister issue?

I don't have a Kraku, I have owned one with similar flame pattern though. I have a Vango lightweight cooker, which exhibits the same issues reported by Kraku users when using it with Coleman gas canisters! I have to overtighten to get gas. I do think too that Alpkit should consider selling a stove with a wider burner like the Vango, to avoid burning food.

Works some of the time

Great wee stove except I constantly have to fiddle with canister thread tightness to get it to go full bore, then it will gradually lessen to a low pressure so very annoying. I can't leave it to boil any water as it will never stay on full for long enough.

Really wanted to love this little guy...

...however I was left with a piece of gear that would only perform about 1/4 of the time. Not necessarily something you want to rely on. Long story short I had tested upon first receiving, then again before a trip to Oklahoma, well it worked fine when I first received (did not over-thread and used with proper fuel), but before leaving I always test gear thoroughly. It wasn't working. I dismantled and noticed that it seemed to have some residue build-up (from one time use!) so I cleaned and reassembled. I purchased new canisters and the Kraku fired right up. Left the next morning, stopped for a meal...hasn't worked since. It's just sitting in my gear closet. I've messaged Alpkit about the issue and they said they've had other's reporting the same issue over here in the US, but can't replicate it themselves. I've looked at the two different canisters marketed by Coleman in the US and UK, they look significantly different in design and possibly threading. So while this is no doubt an excellent product, exceptionally lightweight, I wouldn't recommend to American buyers. I feel Alpkit should make this compatibility issue known. I purchased as part of the Micro-adventure bundle so feel a little bummed out I'm left with an item that doesn't work properly.

First use of the Alpkit Kraku Backpacking Gas Stove

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.
