Primus EtaPackLite Stove

A special heat-exchanger design lets this efficient camp stove utilize up to 80 percent of its flame output and heat while cooking — a good eco move to start. But Primus goes another step by purchasing carbon-offset credits for every EtaPackLite stove sold, making cooking outdoors now a carbon-neutral experience.

For backpackers, the entire EtaPackLite kit — including stove base, windscreen, and gas cartridge — fits inside the included 1.2-liter pot for easy transport in a pack. The Primus EtaPackLite costs $115.
