The Optimus Crux is the minimalist backpackers dream stove, it is powerful, super lightweight and packs up to an incredibly small size. Despite its small size it pumps out a hefty 3000 Watt/10200BTU of heat and the ingenious folding pan supports will handle a wide range of pans and billies.

Once you've got this little beauty up and running it is easy to precisely control the flame form a gentle simmer to full on rocket power with the fine control valve and because the large burner head allows a wide displacement of heat there is little or no spot burning.

When you've finished cooking the Crux can be folded and stashed in its protective stuff sack and then you can hide it in the hollow base of a gas cylinder or stuff it in your pocket or webbing pouch. Despite the small size the Crux is powerful and will boil a litre of water in as little as 3 minutes, the burner unit gives 90 minutes burn time on a 220g canister. Nicely crafted, and with a carrying pouch included, this little beauty is powerful and utterly reliable.

Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend. I usually go to the shop in Hereford as staff are alwasy very helpful and knowledgeable. So this was the first time I have purchased online and the service was just as good as the shop.
