Questions on Nova

  • From Ken at 6/15/12 2:09 PM
    • How would one use butane/propane canisters with this stove? Is there a separate accessory on to which one would thread a canister and attach the fuel line?
    • Thank you for the question. This stove does not accept butane/propane canisters, it will only burn liquid fuel (White Gas, Kerosene, Diesel and Jet Fuel). For a stove that burns both gas and liquid fuel, I suggest the MSR WhisperLite Universal. I've included a link to it below. Thanks!

Description
The award this stove has received weigh more than the stove itself. An award winner many times over and the benchmark for outdoor cooking equipment standards, Optimus Nova has it all; performance, durability and ease of use. Outdoor adventures, including those on polar expeditions, rely on the Optimus Nova to fire up in a snap with its patented quick-priming burner. Users can rest assured knowing that the Optimus Nova will always burn strong and clean thanks to the MAGIC magnetic cleaning needle. Its self-purging Flipstop pump makes shutdown a task simple enough for one finger and despite the Optimus Nova's long reach pot supports, it folds up smaller than its fuel tank. That means more room for food. Get cooking!

Backcountry Gear gets it: camping and hiking gear should help get you out into nature while not weighing you down with what it takes to get there. Your outdoor adventure shouldn't be hindered by heavy kitchenware, overwrought backpacks, or complicated camping tents. Get equipped with the right gear, but not too much. It's about efficiency and versatility, minimum weight for maximum benefit. Backcountry Gear, where minimalism meets productivity.


Backcountry Gear knows lightweight backpacking is all about keeping things compact and sensible. Hiking gear should be sturdy, reliable, and lightweight. Camping tents should be constructed of lightweight, durable materials, and be easy to assemble. Kitchen kits should be featherlight and easy to clean. Trekking poles should keep you balanced. Accessories like medical kits should be comprehensive and intuitive. We understand, and we understand not every hiker is the same.


Our inventory has a backpack for every pursuit. We have ultralight daypacks, hydration packs, packs for kids, duffles, and child carriers. No one gets left out. We have dog packs, lumbar packs, dry bags, travel packs and luggage, courier bags, shoulder bags, and external frame backpacks.

Keep weight down with ultralight titanium pots, pans, and utensils from Snow Peak and Evernew and keep going.

 

For multi-day hikes, Backcountry Gear has go-to water treatment options for every water source. Pump and be sure with MSR's Hyperflow Microfilter or Katadyn's Hiker Pro Microfilter.
