Regularly referred to as a “Gem of a Stove” by its following because It’s high functioning simplicity. It’s small but fierce! To get a high BTU from such a small structure I knew it needed to breathe freely which lent itself very well to its minimalistic design. The small diameter arms and legs are spring tempered for strength. With the Nano, less is more. Less bulk, weight and complication with plenty of function. I use the Nano primarily with the Trangia Alcohol Burner. Secondarily (as backup) with wood (twigs and sticks) which works very well but does require a bit more of your attention. The Nano works perfectly with the Trangia alcohol burner both for heat sensitive cooking and fast boiling with a wide variety of cookware. If you prefer the clean and convenient experience of cooking over alcohol, the Nano-Trangia combination provides an excellent experience for all types of camping.
Nano Kit Includes:
G2 Nano Stove (choose Titanium or Stainless Steel), Nano Sticks, L-Pins, Carbon Felt and X-Case.
Nano Stove: Owners often refer to it as a “Gem of a stove” It’s an expression of genuine admiration for a product with simple sophistication. It’s surprisingly able to do so much with so little, earning its place in backpacks around the world.
X-Case: Besides being an awesome case to protect your nano, the X-Case also performs as a stabilizer and an ash pan for your nano using the X grooves which are built in. It also has room for storing a Carbon Felt pad which is useful for a variety of purposes including as a wind guard (using the L-Pins and Carbon Felt). Simply clear the area of combustibles, open up the X-Case & Nano, break up a few sticks and you’re ready to boil water for coffee or cook up a freshly caught trout dinner!
Carbon Felt: We weren’t out to make something to withstand high winds since a wood fire in high winds is a bad idea regardless of your windscreen. For the amount of wind, which I feel is still safe (to have a wood fire) the Carbon Felt as a wind block works great. If you add the flame guard (sold separately) on the other side it works even better.
L-Pins: These pins are used to create a windscreen using the Carbon Felt and X-Case.
Note: Fire safety is the responsibility of the person lighting the fire.
Stove Buying Guide by Steve: If you’re having a hard time deciding, I hope this helps.
3″ G2 Nano Vs 5″ G2 Firebox, The 5″ Firebox has a larger deeper burn chamber, more BTU output & can hold more hot coals which means high cooking performance. The Nano maintains all the same amazing versatility and capability but in a much smaller, simpler form factor. Think of it as a minimalist version of the higher horse powered 5″ Firebox Stove. You can do all the same things, you’ll just need to pay closer attention to fuel management with the Nano.
Titanium VS Stainless Steel: SS is the heavy duty option, basically bomb proof. If you like big over the top fires, long into the night. I would recommend the SS 5″ Stove (all alloys of SS loose corrosion resistant through wood fire temps. maintain corrosion resistance easily with a light coat of oil between uses). Titanium is 40% lighter, (5″ Stove is basically half the weight) corrosion proof and cools down fast. If you’re carrying your gear on your back and are focused on cooking you’ll be glad to have a 5″ Ti Stove (Panel adjustments may be needed, easily done by hand). The 3″ Nano’s less overall heat potential means it doesn’t need much if any of the above mentioned maintenance (applies to both Ti & SS).
The choice comes down to backpacking vs car camping, and cooking performance. SS is more sturdy, Ti feels amazing in your hand. The Nano is a “gem of a stove” for those keeping things simple. The 5″ Stove is like having a commercial kitchen at camp. In the end, you can’t go wrong, most people want more than one stove because needs change depending on the trip. I’ve learned that a trip’s success greatly depends on having the right gear (right up there with the weather).
Have fun, be safe and love your family, Steve
