UOG TOP PICK -New River Pot Combo and Amicus Stove High performance stove that stows in the provided pot for a lightweight outdoor cooking system. A lightweight and compact cook system that we love, one of our top picks
SOTO says: Superior performance under windy conditions.
SOTO introduces a cook set designed especially for the minimalist backpacker. Unique raised ledge at the crown of the burner head and concave burner surface increase performance under windy conditions. Spring-loaded pot supports are engineered for easy set up. Stable for the pot.
This is a nice set from SOTO and at this price it lends itself well to people starting out with lightweight backpacking.
The Amicus Stove is a great stove for camping and backpacking and it includes many of the features found on their more expensive models including four folding pot stand supports and a recessed burner head that provides superior performance in windy conditions.
When not in use, the pot stand supports and simmer control fold up compactly, making this stove easy to store in the New River pot along with a small gas canister.
SOTO's New River Pot has no frills, it's a simple backpacking pot with a fold away handle. The lid is a nice addition as it has an open section for pouring, draining things or slurping a hot drink from (obligatory disclaimer: make sure you allow boiling hot drinks to cool before drinking). Excellent craftsmanship from SOTO as always.
